We can use the foreach operation to call the MoveNext command in order to enumerate the query. To discuss deferred execution in further detail, let's take a look at the following code, which we can find in the DeferredExecution.csproj project:

public partial class Program { public static void DeferredExecution() { List memberList = new List() { new Member { ID = 1, Name = "Eddie Morgan", Gender = ...
