Nice question, but the answer is a complete fail :angry:.
The whole batch will in fact fail because a variable can only be declared once ion a batch, so the batch is failed and neither statement is executed. The nearest option to that in the answers is "both fail".
Had the question been "which batch will fail" the given answer would have been correct, but the question was about statements and the code given was a single batch with the same variable declared twice.
Looks like a lack of quality assurance to me :hehe:.
And I'm appalled at all those earlier replies that indicate no-one noticed this simple coding error.
