Referring to the sample code above, the INITIAL
attribute is described by which one of the following
statements?
Choice 1
Only on dynamic CALLs will the called program's
WORKING-STORAGE fields have the initial values that are
coded for them.
Choice 2
Only on static CALLs will the called program's
WORKING-STORAGE fields have the initial values that are
coded for them.
Choice 3
It informs the compiler that each time the program is
called, all WORKING-STORAGE fields will have the
initial values that are coded for them.
Choice 4
Coding this attribute for a statically or dynamically
CALLed program has the same effect as coding the CANCEL
command before issuing the next CALL to it.
Choice 5
When called, all files defined with the EXTERNAL

Formula

A worker's total pay is calculated as the sum of the


following:
a) wage-rate multiplied by 40 hours
b) (wage-rate multiplied by 1.5) multiplied by
(hours-worked - 40)
where item 'b' above is only calculated when hoursworked exceeds 40.
Assume a minimum of 40 hours are worked. You are given
W-RATE and W-HRS-WORKED.
Overtime Hours can be calculated as hours worked in
excess of 40 hours.
Which one of the following statements correctly
calculates Total Wages using the formula shown
above?
Choice 1
