yeh so during...
runtime, comments are not loaded into main memory along with the program as comments are ignored by the compiler.

I say true, who says false?

Runtime- compilers don't work that way. Compiled code has already been stripped of comments and other such nuances, and transformed into object code (then linked, etc. to form the executable).

If you mean interpreters ignore comments, I'd have to agree. Interpreted languages may have comments, which are ignored by the interpreter at runtime as it moves through the logical flow of statements in the source files. ;)
