    Solution Preview

    Loops are used to do repetitive work in a program.
    Any loop can be either conditional or unconditional (also known as infinite loops).
    A conditional loop terminates when a certain condition becomes true or as long as a certain condition remains true.
    Generally, any loop can be suited to any particular problem. However, there are some subtle differences based on
    a) when the loop termination condition is checked; it is checked either at the beginning or at the end
    b) whether the loop should run while a condition is true or until a condition becomes true. Note, the former is simply the logical negation of the ...
