    This is very elementary -- but kindly explain -- can someone please explain why the output of the code below is this:

    OUTPUT:
    a = 2
    b = 3
    c = 4
    d = 1

    How did a = 2 as above? Thanks.

    Code:
    public class MainClass {
       public static void main(String args[]) {
        int a = 1;
        int b = 2;
        int c;
        int d;
        c = ++b;
        d = a++;
        c++;
        System.out.println("a = " + a);
        System.out.println("b = " + b);
        System.out.println("c = " + c);
        System.out.println("d = " + d);
      }
    }
