Hi .. Hope You Guys Are At Good State Of Health . !!
I'm Student Of Computer Sciences[BS(CS)] In current Semester I'm enrolled a course called Introduction To Programming. I'm about average in it ..
But whenever teacher gives a question regarding printing asterisks in different manner by using loops (in the test) I'm puzzled .. I don't know what to do ..
Some reading stuff, articles, suggestions would be appreciated..

Senior Software Engineers Please Suggest Some Thing .. !?
#include "stdafx.h"
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
int main ()
	int M, row = 0, column = 0, space = 0;
	cout << "Please Enter The Number Of Rows to Print Stars in Descending Order: "; cin >> M;
	while (row < M)
		while (column <= row)
			cout << "*";
			while (space <= M - 1)
				cout << " ";
		cout << '\n';
	return 0;

When answering a question please:
  1. Read the question carefully.
  2. Understand that English isn't everyone's first language so be lenient of bad spelling and grammar.
  3. If a question is poorly phrased then either ask for clarification, ignore it, or edit the question and fix the problem. Insults are not welcome.
