Quick A: This is not a valid statement.

Recently on SO:

## Is (4 > y > 1) a valid statement in C++? How do you evaluate it if so?

The statement (4 > y > 1) is parsed as this:

((4 > y) > 1)The comparison operators < and > evaluate left-to-right.

The 4 > y returns either 0 or 1 depending on if it's true or not.

Then the result is compared to 1.

In this case, since 0 or 1 is never more than 1, the whole statement will always return false.
