I think the right answer is B) Void pointer.

The void pointer can point to any variable of any data type or point to NULL which means points to no location in the memory.

Because it is not pointing to any memory address therefore it's a null pointer.

And we also avoid parenthesis.

A void pointer is a pointer which nothing points anywhere In memory.

A null pointer means a pointer pointing to zero. In computer language, null value its just like initialize with zero.

It's a cast of 0 to (void *) '0' is a null value, so we got a NULL pointer.

void *ptr indicate void or generic pointer.

So (void *) is the address of pointer ptr.

(Void *)pointer is a pointer having no data type so it can't take implicitly data type we need to give data type explicitly.

(Void *)p

Need to give;
(char) *p

(Void* ) have the flexibility to change the data type.
