main()
{
int a ={ 1,2,3,4,5,6,7};

}
Ans :   : 3 3

3. what is the output of the program?

#include
main()
{
struct s1 {int i; };
struct s2 {int i; };
struct s1 st1;
struct s2 st2;
st1.i =5;
st2 = st1;
printf(" %d " , st2.i);
}

Ans : : nothing (error)
expl:  diff struct variables should not   assigned using "=" operator.

4.what is the output of the program?

#include
main()
{
int i,j;
int mat[3][3] ={1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9};

for ( j=2;j>=0;j--)
printf("%d" , *(*(mat+j)+i));
}

Ans :  : 9 6 3 8 5 2 7 4 1

5.

#define print(a,b,c) prn(a), prn(b),   prn(c)
#define max(a,b) (a

{
int x=1, y=2;
print(max(x++,y),x,y);
print(max(x++,y),x,y);
}

Ans : : 3 4 2
