The number of tokens in the FORTRAN statement DO 10 I = 1.25 is

1. 3
2. 4
3. 5
4. None of the above
+1
A)3

there are 3 tokens because its 1.25 not 1,25 . Notice the dot and comma in those.  Answer would be 5 if it would have comma 1,25 .

No , It has 3 Tokens. And this problem was the cause of failure for Venus Probe Mariner 1 sent by NASA

Ohkay, someone downvoted my comment. But correct answer is still 3. (And if you become an engineer with answer 5 and somhow get into NASA later, then you might cause world's most expensive period(.) ).

Why we are rejecting the fact that whitespaces are insignificant. Any specific reason please share.

token1= DO10I ,

token2= '='

token3=1.25

Within the statement field, blanks were generally ignored, allowing the programmer to omit space between tokens for brevity, or include spaces within identifiers for clarity (for example, AVG OF X was a valid identifier, and equivalent to AVGOFX).

What does the following statement mean?

DO10I
This is a fortran statement and in fortran blanks in fixed-format are ignored hence, in fortran this statement is considered as an instance of the identifier. So number of tokens will be 3 (DO5I, =,1.25).

If statement was like DO 5 I = 1,25 then it would have been considered as a DO statement.
