The clear idea on CONTINUE and SECTION in COBOL

The CONTINUE in COBOL is no operation statement…

Also, it is called DO NOTHING.

The word NEXT SENTENCE is to pass control to next sentence of where sentence ends with a period.

The SECTION.

Usually section contains multiple paras. If you call a section, it does mean that it calls all the paras within that section.

Where as para means, it calls only that para.

Now you are good to go.
