The complement to the while loop is the until loop. It’s sort of like a backward while:

i = 0 until i == 6 i = i + 1 end puts i
  1. In the example above, we first create a variable i and set it to 0 (zero).
  2. Then we execute a block of code until i is equal to 6. That block of code increments i.
  3. When i is equal to 6, the block ends.
  4. Finally, we print 6, the value of i, to the console.



On line 2, fill in the __ blank so that the loop breaks when counter is greater than 10.

On line 5, increment counter like we do in the example above.
