CSP Unit 4 Lesson 10 AP Practice Question

I have a student asking why the answer is School day. I would appreciate help with an explanation that they will understand.

  1. day_of_week is first assigned a value of “Saturday”.
  2. Next statement replaced that value with “Monday”. The value “Saturday” is garbaged!
  3. So now, since the day_of_week is neither “Saturday” nor “Sunday”, the if condition is false.
  4. The else part is executed, function weekday is called which displays “School day”.

Thank you so much! This is exactly my thinking but i guess my brain was on overload because I just couldn’t put it to words! I appreciate your help.
