### Interview c coding question

IBM placement question with solution on c
(1) Output of the following program is
void main()
{
int i=0;
for(i=0;i<20;i++)
{
switch(i){
case 0:i+=5;
case 1:i+=2;
case 5:i+=5;
default i+=4;
break;
}
printf("%d,",i);
}
}
(a)0,5,9,13,17
b) 5,9,13,17
c) 12,17,22
d) 16,21
e) Syntax error
Ans. (d)
(2) What is the output in the following program
main()
{
char c=-64;
int i=-32
unsigned int u =-16;
if(c>i)
{printf("pass1,");
if(c<u)
printf("pass2");
else
printf("Fail2");
}
else
printf("Fail1);
if(i<u)
printf("pass2");
else
printf("Fail2")
}
Pass1,Pass2
b) Pass1,Fail2
c) Fail1,Pass2
d) Fail1,Fail2
e) None of these
Ans. (c)
(3) What will the following program do?
void main()
{
int i;
char a[]="String";
char *p="New Sring";
char *Temp;
Temp=a;
a=malloc(strlen(p) + 1);
strcpy(a,p); //Line number:9//
p = malloc(strlen(Temp) +
1);
strcpy(p,Temp);
printf("(%s, %s)",a,p);
free(p);
free(a);
} //Line number 15//
a)contents of p & a and print:(New string, string)
b) Generate compilation error in line number 8
c) Generate compilation error in line number 5
d) Generate compilation error in line number 7
e) Generate compilation error in line number 1
Ans. (b)
(4) In the following code segment what will be the result of the function,value
of x , value of y
{unsigned int x=-1;
int y;
y = ~0;
if(x == y)
printf("same");
else
printf("not same");
}
same, MAXINT, -1
b) not same, MAXINT, -MAXINT
c) same , MAXUNIT, -1
d) same, MAXUNIT, MAXUNIT
e) not same, MAXINT, MAXUNIT
Ans. (a)
(5) What will be the result of the following program?
char *gxxx()
{static char xxx;
return xxx;
}
main()
{char *g="string";
strcpy(gxxx(),g);
g = gxxx();
strcpy(g,"oldstring");
printf("The string is : %s",gxxx());
}
The string is : string
b) The string is :Oldstring
c) Run time error/Core dump
d) Syntax error during compilation
e) None of these
Ans. (b)
(6) What will be result of the following program?
void myalloc(char *x, int n)
{x= (char *)malloc(n*sizeof(char));
memset(x,\0,n*sizeof(char));
}
main()
{char *g="String";
myalloc(g,20);
strcpy(g,"Oldstring");
printf("The string is %s",g);
}
The string is : String
b) Run time error/Core dump
c) The string is : Oldstring
d) Syntax error during compilation
e) None of these
(7)What will be the result of the following program?
main()
{char p[]="String";
int x=0;
if(p=="String")
{printf("Pass 1");
if(p[sizeof(p)-2]=='g')
printf("Pass 2");
else
printf("Fail 2");
}
else
{
printf("Fail 1");
if(p[sizeof(p)-2]=='g')
printf("Pass
2");
else

}
}
Pass
1, Pass 2
b) Fail 1, Fail 2
c) Pass 1, Fail 2
d) Fail 1, Pass 2
e) syntax error during compilation

c) You can't change the pointer in both
d) First : You can't change the pointer & Second : You can't chanage the character
e) None

func(&i,&j);
printf("%d %d", i, j);}
What is the output?
(10) For the following C program
void insert(key,r)
typekey key,data array r;
{extern int n;
if(n>=max) /*error table if full */
else r[n++].k=key;
}
This on executing, enables
