Answer / suresh

hi naveen,

Actually we are moving 0 to group-item so it will become
zero and adding 50 to amount-1. Hence Amount-1 is 50.

please correct me if i am wrong.

consider the following piece of code 01 GROUP-ITEM 05 AMOUNT-1 PIC 99V9 USAGE COMP V..

Answer / priyanka

IDENTIFICATION DIVISION.
PROGRAM-ID. HELLO.

DATA DIVISION.
WORKING-STORAGE SECTION.
01 GROUP-ITEM.
05 AMOUNT-1 PIC 99V9 COMP USAGE COMP VALUE 50.
05 AMOUNT-2 PIC 9(4)V99 USAGE COMP.

PROCEDURE DIVISION.
A000-FIRST-PARA.
INITIALIZE GROUP-ITEM.
MOVE 0 TO GROUP-ITEM.
ADD 50 TO AMOUNT-1.

DISPLAY AMOUNT-1
.
STOP RUN.

If we don't use " MOVE 0 TO GROUP-ITEM." condition then the answer is 50 else if we are using it then the answer is 32.0. so I think the right answer is unpredictable.
Please correct in email if I am wrong.
