Author: Marty Stepp (on 2010/12/28)

For each of the five points labeled by comments, identify each of the assertions in the table below as either being always true, never true, or sometimes true / sometimes false.

public static int stuff(Random r, int m) {
    int c = 0;
    int t = 0;
    int d = r.nextInt(m);
    // Point A
    while (c <= 3) {
        // Point B
        d = r.nextInt(6) + 1;
        if (d <= m) {
            // Point C
        } else {
            c = 0;
            // Point D

    // Point E
    return t;

Fill in each box of the the table below with ALWAYS, NEVER or SOMETIMES.

c > 3 d <= m c == 0
Point A
Point B
Point C
Point D
Point E
