     Instructions:   Review the following program and see if you can 
                     predict the outcome by completing a "pencil 
                     trace" of the code.  

                     Program output is provided at the end of this 
                     page.

     Compiler:       The program was prepared using Standard Pascal 
                     on a UNIX-based host computer.

{ The purpose of this program is to:

  1.  Demonstrate an array of integer variables.

  2.  Demonstrate an array of character variables.

  3.  Demonstrate an array of real variables.

  4.  Demonstrate an array of boolean variables.

     D  = array[2..4]       of boolean;
     E  = array[1..12]      of D;
     F  = array[1..12,1..6] of boolean;
