Hoping someone can answer them.

  3. What does it mean to pass a block to a method?
  4. What does it mean for a method to “accept” a block?
  5. Can you explain the process or idea of “transferring control from the calling method to the block and back again.” In this context, what is “control” and what is the “calling method”?
