Problem Statement:

The following code snippet contains some conditional (nested if else /else if based) statements. Which are difficult to understand as they do not contain any starting or ending keywords against each statement. You, being a programming language expert, are required to put "then" and "end if/else/else if" at appropriate places to get the desired result.


Code Snippet:

At start, x contains 100 (i.e. x = 100)



if (x > 50)

     x = x * 5;

 }if (x > 200){

     x = x - 200;

     }if (x > 350){

          x = x - 150;


              x = x + 150;


          if (x > 400){

              x = x - 150;

           }if (x < 500){    

              x = x + 150;

             }if (x == 500){

                   x = x + 200;

                    }else if (x > 400){

                    x = x - 100;

                    }else if (x < 650){

                         x = x + 100;


                    x = x * 5;      



At end, x contains 350.


This is a language-free code, which does not require any specific programming language to compile or execute. You are simply required to guess the flow of execution on the basis of value of x and put "then" and "end if/else/else if" at appropriate places (see the hint given below). Furthermore, you can also add extra lines or spaces in your solution as well.
