Software Design Using C++

Review of Decision Statements

Answering the Question

First, we repeat the description of the problem: Write a C++ function that is given an integer grade (such as 90, 84, 66) and sends back the corresponding letter grade (such as A, B, D) in the function name. Return the letter I for any invalid grade number.

You selected Answer A, shown below. This is incorrect. For example, it would assign the letter grade B to the numeric grade 90, which is wrong. Go back and try again.

/* Given:  NumGrade   A numeric grade (whole number).
   Task:   To find the corresponding letter grade.
   Return: This letter grade in the function name.
char LetterGrade(int NumGrade)
   if (NumGrade > 100)
      return 'I';
   else if (NumGrade > 90)
      return 'A';
   else if (NumGrade > 80)
      return 'B';
   else if (NumGrade > 70)
      return 'C';
   else if (NumGrade > 60)
      return 'D';
   else if (NumGrade > 0)
      return 'F';
      return 'I';
