As a=0 at line 30, there is an "ERROR IN EXPRESSION" in the "if" condition
And there is no way to put this expression to "true" or "false" as there is a
big BIG "ERROR" !!!

Because there is no order for evaluating the first and the second condition in
the AND operation,
In any way both have to be without any errors.
FALSE AND ERROR is FALSE ? That cannot be !
FALSE AND ERROR has to be ERROR !!!

So you will ever get big BIG ERRORs...
