```This is a slightly reduced version of a questionnaire run by Greg Wilson on some CS

I'd like to use the readers of comp.lang.python as guinea pigs this time.

PLEASE SEND THE RESULTS TO mailto:peter@schneider-kamp.de - DON'T SEND THEM TO THE LIST

The single and double loop below print the output shown:

for x in [10, 20, 30]:           for x in [10, 20, 30]:
print x                          for y in [1, 2, 3]:
print x+y
10                              11
20                              12

Match each of the following example for-loops to an output. Only make one cross per line.
