(A) 40 20
(B) 40 30
(C) 30 30
(D) 30 40


Answer: (B)

Explanation: The main statement in question is “x += y += 10”. Since there are two += operators in the statement, associativity comes into the picture. Associativity of compound assignment operators is right to left, so the expression is evaluated as x += (y += 10).
