    Default Java Question

    public class AA {


    int add(int i) {
    int y = i;
    y += 20;
    System.out.println("*.y= " + y);

    if (y <= 100) {
    y +=30;
    System.out.println("**.y= " + y);
    add(y); // second call
    System.out.println("***.y= " + y);

    }else {System.out.println("*****.y= " + y);}

    System.out.println("Final Value of y : " + y);
    return y;
    }

    public static void main(String args[]) {

    Default Unsolved Core Java Program

    public class AA {


    int add(int i) {
    int y = i;
    y += 20;
    System.out.println("*.y= " + y);

    if (y <= 100) {
    y +=30;
    System.out.println("**.y= " + y);
    add(y); // second call
    System.out.println("***.y= " + y);

    }else {System.out.println("*****.y= " + y);}

    System.out.println("Final Value of y : " + y);
    return y;
    }

    public static void main(String args[]) {
    AA obj = new AA();


    System.out.println("At Last x: " + obj.add(5));

    }

    }

    Here I can't get why obj.add(5) returns 55 instead of 125. What's the role of return statement here. Please clear it .
