Match the following programming concepts with their descriptions:

Repeat Until Loop = Executes a set of instructions until a specific condition is met If Statement = Allows for decision-making based on a condition If-Else Statement = Provides an alternative path of execution when a condition is not met Move Forward Block = Instructs an object to move in a specified direction

Match the following scenarios with the correct programming action:

Bird reaching the pig = Using a 'repeat until' block to move forward until reaching the pig Checking for path to the left = Implementing an 'if' statement to determine if there's a path to the left Moving forward or turning left = Utilizing an 'if-else' statement to handle different paths Wearing a jacket based on rain = Analogous use of an 'if' statement in daily decision-making

Match the following terms with their definitions:

General-purpose programming = Programming languages designed for various applications Client-side scripting for web applications = Code that runs in a user's web browser Database queries = Commands used to interact with databases Styling web pages = Defining the look and layout of web content

Match the block of instructions with their corresponding action:

  1. Move Forward one space = moveForward();
  2. Turn left or right by 90 degrees = turnRight();
  3. Do some statements several times = for (var count = 0; count < 3; count++) { moveForward(); }
  4. Repeat the enclosed action until finish point is reached = if (isPathForward()) { moveForward(); }

Match the condition with the correct action:

  1. Check if there is a path forward = if (isPathForward()) { moveForward(); }
  2. Check if there is a path to the left = if (isPathLeft()) { turnLeft(); }
  3. Check if there is a path forward, otherwise turn left = if (isPathForward()) { moveForward(); } else { turnLeft(); }
  4. Execute actions based on path availability = if (isPathForward()) { moveForward(); }

Match the loop type with its functionality:

  1. Repeat a set of actions a specific number of times = for (var count = 0; count < 3; count++) { moveForward(); }
  2. Repeat actions while a certain condition is met = while (notFinished()) { moveForward(); turnLeft(); }
  3. Describe the purpose of using loops in programming = Using loops you can tell a computer to repeat any set of actions over and over, thousands or even billions of times.
  4. Specify the number of repetitions in a loop using a block = write a number in the block to tell it how many times to repeat.

Match the conditional statement with its corresponding behavior:

  1. Execute actions only if there is a path forward = if (isPathForward()) { moveForward(); }
  2. Turn left if no path forward exists = else { turnLeft(); }
  3. Choose between two sets of actions based on a condition = if (isPathForward()) { moveForward(); } else { turnLeft(); }
  4. Perform different actions based on specific conditions = if (isPathLeft()) { turnLeft(); }

Match the action with its description:

  1. Move the bird forward one space on the maze = moveForward();
  2. Turn right by 90 degrees = turnRight();
  3. Move forward and turn left for several iterations = while (notFinished()) { moveForward(); turnLeft(); }
  4. Move forward based on path availability = if (isPathForward()) { moveForward(); }

Match the task description with its corresponding solution:

  1. Repeating actions until reaching the finish point = if (isPathForward()) { moveForward(); }
  2. Moving forward multiple spaces using loops = for (var count = 0; count < 3; count++) { moveForward(); }
  3. Handling different scenarios with conditional statements = if (isPathLeft()) { turnLeft(); }
  4. Using loops to repeat actions in programming = Using loops you can tell a computer to repeat any set of actions over and over, thousands or even billions of times.

What is the purpose of using loops in programming?

To define a block of code that can be executed repeatedly

In the provided code, what task is accomplished by the 'moveForward();' instruction?

Move the bird one space forward in the maze

What does 'turnRight();' do in the given instructions?

Turn the bird right by 90 degrees

How many times does the loop in 'for (var count = 0; count < 3; count++) { moveForward(); }' execute 'moveForward();'?

Three times

What condition is checked before executing 'moveForward();' inside the conditional statement 'if (isPathForward()) { moveForward(); }'?

'isPathForward()'

When using 'else' in an if-else statement, what action occurs if the condition is false?

The program proceeds to execute the else block

What programming concept is described when the text mentions using an 'if-else' statement?

Conditional statements

In the given context, what action would Scrat the squirrel take if there's not a path ahead?

Turn left

What block can be used to make the bird in the text move forward until it reaches the pig?

'If' block

Which programming task requires checking for a specific condition before taking an action?

Conditional branching

What programming construct is used to make the zombie check if there's a path to the left?

'If' statement

What is an important feature of an 'if-else' statement compared to an 'if' statement?

It provides an alternative path if the condition is not met
