The answer is A..Answer D is partially right but step 1 being already executed and the question is if step 1 reurns a code of 0 what will happen,So I think it has to be A

Corrections are Welcomed...

The COND clause in the JOB stmt is read as follows:

"If 4 is GT the RC of any executed step, all remaining steps are by-passed."

Step1 termed w/an RC of zero. 4 is GT zero, therefore the remaining steps are by-passed -(in this case, step2).
