Here is the answer,
A break statement when applied to a loop ends the statement. A continue statement ends the iteration of the current loop and returns the control to the loop statement.
The break and the continue statements are generally used along with a condition, which when met is executed. However, a break statement discontinues the execution of the loop and gets the control out of the loop after meeting the condition.
On the other hand the continue statement on meeting the condition,end the current loop iteration and return control to the loop statement.
