Author: Allison Obourn (on 2016/10/24)

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.

def mystery3(x):
    y = 1
    z = 2
    next = int(input("Type a number: "))

    # Point A
    while next >= 0:
        # Point B
        if y >= z:
            # Point C
            z = y
        y += 1
        next = int(input("Type a number: "))
        # Point D

    # Point E
    return z

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

next < 0 y > z y == 1
Point A
Point B
Point C
Point D
Point E
