Structure questions with explanation in c

Structure in c example

(q) What will be output of following c code?

void main()
{
struct employee
{
unsigned id: 8;
unsigned sex:1;
unsigned age:7;
};
struct employee emp1={203,1,23};
clrscr();
printf("%d\t%d\t%d",emp1.id,emp1.sex,emp1.age);
getch();
}

Output: 203 1 23
We can access the data member in same way.
How bit data is stored in the memory:

Minimum size of structure which data member in bit is two byte i.e. 16 bit. This is called word size of microprocessor. Word size depends on microprocessor. Turbo c is based on 8086 microprocessor which word size is two byte.

Bits are filed in from right to left direction 8 bit for id,1 bit for sex and 7 bit for age.

(q) What will be output of following c code?

void main()
{
struct bitfield
{
unsigned a:5;
unsigned c:5;
unsigned b:6;

}bit;
char *p;
struct bitfield *ptr,bit1={1,3,3};
p=&bit1;
p++;
clrscr();
printf("%d",*p);
getch();
}

Output: 12
Explanation:
Binary value of a=1 is 00001 (in 5 bit)
Binary value of b=3 is 00011 (in 5 bit)
Binary value of c=3 is 000011 (in 6 bit)
In memory it is represented as:

Let address of bit1 is 500 which initialize to char pointer p. Since can is one byte data type so p++ will be 501. *p means content of memory location 501 which is (00001100) and its binary equivalent is 12. Hence output is 12.

(q) What will be output of following c code?

void main()
{
struct bitfield
{
signed int a:3;
unsigned int b:13;
unsigned int c:1;
};
struct bitfield bit1={2,14,1};
clrscr();
printf("%d",sizeof(bit1));
getch();
}

Output: 4
(q) What will be output of following c code?

void main()
{
struct bitfield
{
unsigned a:3;
char b;
unsigned c:5;
int d;
}bit;
clrscr();
printf("%d",sizeof(bit));
getch();
}

Output: 5

Note: (Actual output will 6 due to slack byte ,So Before executing this program first go to option menu then compiler then code generation then select word alignment then press OK)

(q) What will be output of following c code?
void main()
{
struct field
{
int a;
char b;
}bit;
struct field bit1={5,'A'};
char *p=&bit1;
*p=45;
clrscr();
printf("\n%d",bit1.a);
getch();
}

Output: 45
Nesting of structure:

Nesting of structure is possible i.e. we can declare a structure within another structure but it is necessary inner structure must declares structure variable otherwise we can not access the data member of inner structure.
Example:

void main()
{
struct world
{
int a;
char b;
struct india
{
char c;
float d;
}p;
};
struct world st ={1,'A','i',1.8};
clrscr();
printf("%d\t%c\t%c\t%f",st.a,st.b,st.p.c,st.p.d);
getch();
}

Output: 1 A I 1.800000

(q) What will be output of following c code?

void main()
{
struct india
{
char c;
float d;
};
struct world
{
int a[3];
char b;
struct india orissa;
};
struct world st ={{1,2,3},'P','q',1.4};
clrscr();
printf("%d\t%c\t%c\t%f",st.a[1],st.b,st.orissa.c,st.orissa.d);
getch();
}

Output: 2 p q 1.400000

the answer to the third question is coming out to be 3 in borland C 4.5
and individually the size of signed and unsigned int is coming to be 2 each
wat is the correct ans....m getting confused

Ambili said...

C is compiler dependent as we all know.So if u try the 5th question in borland c you will get the answer 5 where as in visual studio you will find an answer of 16.So dnt get confuse with that concepts.

Hi All,
can anyone tell me why the o/p of below code is 20 under gcc..

struct abc {
char name[10];
int i;
char val;
};
int main(){
printf("%d\n",sizeof(struct abc));
}

in c language you can not define a function inside the structure.to overcome such limitation class concept came in C++.
Hope you find it useful :)

hi bro can you help write a Write a program that, using a recursive function, prints the sum of consecutive numbers from 1
to n, where n > 1.
The function should take the n number.
• The function should calculate and return the sum of the numbers.
• Determine the exit condition of the recursion.
• If the (n <1), then let the function returns -1. Print a message.
• Let the function returns a long int

Unknown said...

good

Unknown said...

13 is the answer because of char array has 10 byetes(i.e 10 char each 1 byte so 10 bytes)and int size is 2 and 4 bytes in 32 and 64 bit operating system.at last again char occupies 1 byte,so finally 10+2+1=13(32 bit of) or
10+4+1=15(64 bit os)
