      Description

      Jump statements (return, break and next) move control flow out of the current code block. So any statements that come after a jump are dead code.

      Noncompliant Code Example

      def foo(a)
        i = 10
        return a + i    # Noncompliant 
        i += 1          # dead code
      end
      

      Compliant Solution

      def foo(a)
        i = 10
        return a + i
      end
