In this assignment, you will research different selection and programming techniques and learn how to select the best technique for a given situation.
Using the South University Online Library or the Internet, research on the following:
- Selection techniques
- Programming techniques
- Control structures
Imagine a scenario in which you are asked to create a menu-driven program in which certain tasks need to be performed based on the choices a user makes (1, 2, 3, and so on).
Based on your research and the task assigned in the scenario, answer the following questions:
- Which selection technique do you think is best suited for such a program? Why?
- Do you agree that all control structures are nothing but a form of the ”Go to” statement? Why or why not? Justify your responses with reasons.
- Is “Go to” a good programming technique? Why or why not?
- Do you agree with the statement, “The ‘do while’ loop is enough to solve any problem that uses looping and no other repetition structure is required”? Why or why not?
