Ans: This loop will run forever since number never changes – it remains at 1.
Correct code
int number = 1;
while (number <= 5)
{System.out.print(“Square of ” + number);
System.out.println(” = ” + number*number);
number++; } 


16. Give two differences between while loop and do while loop.


while loop
1.A while loop is an entry controlled loop
