hi,
GDG stands for Generation Data Group and is a method used on the mainframe to allow a group of related files to be created that can be referenced individually or as a group.
Generation 0 represents the current generation within the GDG at the time that the current job began execution
while -1 represents the immediately previous versionEven earlier versions can be referenced using -2, -3
If a new generation is added to the GDG during execution of the job then it will be the +1,+2,+3,+4 etc generation.

If you try it, the answer will be real obvious.
