Programmed Output

1. Write showmessage calls which reproduce the following lines of text exactly.

  1. "Maybe", he said.
  2. This is john's output.
  3. 'The Terrace Family'

2. Write Pascal programs to create the following output. Your programs should use the smallest amount of code possible. The rulers (Dashed lines) are there for your convenience and do not form part of the output, they merely show you the required spacing. Prudent use of FIELD WIDTH and DEC PLACES is encouraged.

 (a)---------    (b)---------    (c)---------
