Because $X$ has the value 2 and $2<3,$ control transfers to statement 10, which sets the value of $A$ to $2 .$ The next statement transfers control to statement $30,$ at which point A has the value 2 and $B$ still has the value 1 because statement 20 was never executed. Therefore the new value of A is $2+1=3$ .
