Which of the statements is correct about the program?

int main()
    int i=10;
    int *j=&i;
    return 0;
j and i are pointers to an int
i is a pointer to an int and stores address of j
j is a pointer to an int and stores address of i
j is a pointer to a pointer to an int and stores address of i
Answer: Option

Actually these all are compiler dependent. In IndiaBix compiler it works whereas in more standard compilers like Turbo C it won't because you are gonna convert int*(address) to int (value).

We initialized j as *j so it becomes pointer & its declared to int type,on rhs side we have &i that means we think its a pointer type but actually its not a pointer its address of i and we have = symbol that means address is stored in pointer so "A" is wrong and "C" is correct.

In program we created a variable i and assign value as 10.

After we initialize (declaration+assignment) a pointer which is of integer type, holding the address of i.

So the option is "C" only.

Here j is a veriable , contain pointer.so it become pointer veriable and points to an integer type in memory location.
now address of "a" is assigning to "j" pointer, ie address of "a" store to "j" location.

hence absolutaly ans = option "C"
