  3.             for(int i=1;i<=3;i++){
  4.                     for(int j=1;j<=3;j++){
  5.                         if(i==2&&j==2){
  6.                             break;
  7.                         }
  8.                         System.out.println(i+” “+j);
  9.                     }
  10.             }
