C Interview Questions & Answers - Learning Mode

C is a high-level and general purpose programming language that is ideal for developing firmware or portable applications. Originally intended for writing system software, C was developed at Bell Labs by Dennis Ritchie for the Unix Operating System (OS) in the early 1970s. With the increasing popularity of object-oriented programming, C is being rapidly replaced as "the" programming language by C++, a superset of the C language that uses an entirely different set of programming concepts, and by Java, a language similar to but simpler than C++, that was designed for use in distributed networks.

Question: void main()
float a= 0.7;
if (a < 0.7)
Output of the above program is c. Why? Whereas the same program with 0.8 instead of 0.7 gives c++ as the output? Why explain?

Answer: If you give value greater than .7 then it will go 2 the else part because .8 is not less than .7 Source:
Question: What is page thrashing?

Answer: Some operating systems (such as UNIX or Windows in enhanced mode) use virtual memory. Virtual
memory is a technique for making a machine behave as if it had more memory than it really has, by using disk space to simulate RAM (random-access memory). In the 80386 and higher Intel CPU chips, and in most other modern microprocessors (such as the Motorola 68030, Sparc, and Power PC), exists a piece of hardware called the Memory Management Unit, or MMU.

The MMU treats memory as if it were co Source:
Question: main()
extern int i;

Answer: Linker Error : Undefined symbol '_i'
extern storage class in the following declaration,
extern int i;
specifies to the compiler that the memory for i is allocated in some other program and that address will be given to the current program at the time of linking. But linker finds that no other variable of name i is available in any other program with memory space allocated for it. Hence a linker error has occurred .

Question: How to find GCD of four numbers?

Answer: Take 4 numbers.The smallest number has to be found out.Then divide each number by that numbers which are less than that smallest number.
so divide each numbers by 1,2,3,4,5.
The GCD will be that number which divides all the number.(here 5) Source:
Question: main()
if (!(1&&0))
printf("OK I am done.");
printf("OK I am gone.");

Answer: OK I am done
Question: Write a program to remove comment lines and blank lines from an error free c program.


void main()
FILE *a,*b;
char fname[20],ch,tch=NULL;
int flag1=0,flag=0,count=0;
printf("Enter the file name (.C or .TXT)
a=fopen(fnam Source:
Question: #define SQR(x) x * x
printf("%d", 225/SQR(15));

Answer: Use typical C coding guidelines and use

#define SQR(x) ((x) * (x))

And you get the desired answer: 1

Question: What are enumerations?

Answer: enumerations is one type of user defined data type Source:
Question: To which numbering system can the binary number 1101100100111100 be easily converted to?

Answer: Since this is a 16 bit number,
we can group these bits into 4bits a group each as
Hence the given set of bits can be converted to HEXA DECIMAL SYSTEM
16 Source:
Question: When should the register modifier be used? Does it really help?

Answer: The register modifier hints to the compiler that the variable will be heavily used and should be kept in the CPU?s registers, if possible, so that it can be accessed faster.

There are several restrictions on the use of the register modifier.

First, the variable must be of a type that can be held in the CPU?s register. This usually means a single value of a size less than or equal to the size of an integer. Some machines have registers that can hold floating-point numbers as well. Source:
Question: When should a type cast be used?

Answer: There are two situations in which to use a type cast. The first use is to change the type of an operand to an arithmetic operation so that the operation will be performed properly.

The second case is to cast pointer types to and from void * in order to interface with functions that expect or return void pointers. For example, the following line type casts the return value of the call to malloc() to be a pointer to a foo structure.

struct foo *p = (struct foo *) malloc(sizeof(struc Source:
Question: What is a default TCP/IP socket assigned for SQL Server?

Question: What is difference between the test effort and the test procedure?

Answer: Both are different concepts. Test effort defines how much time required to execute a particular test case. Test procedure defines the required actions to execute that test case.
Question: If the following program (myprog) is run from the command line as myprog monday tuesday wednesday thursday
What would be the output?

main(int argc, char *argv[])
while(--argc >0)

Answer: B, it will print "mondaytuesdaywednesdaythursday" Source:
Question: main()
int i=3;
case 1: printf("one");
case 2:printf("two");
case 3: printf("three");

Answer: The output will be three because when execution takes place ,inside the switch the corresponding case 3(since i=3)is selected and as there is a break statement after it, it cmes out of the loop. Source:
Question: main()
char *p;
printf("%d %d ",sizeof(*p),sizeof(p));

Answer: Ans :1,2 because the *p is the pointer varible but the type is character.p is apointer variable.

Question: main()
int x=5;
for(;x==0;x--) {
printf("x=%dn?", x--);

Answer: The condition x==0 is never satisfied so it prints nothing.

Question: What will be the output of the following program in UNIX OS with CC compiler and TC compiler?

int main()
int i=5;
printf(" %d",++i + ++i + ++i + ++i + ++i );
If any difference then Why it is difference?


Output: 41.

For different compiler ther will be same output.

Expression will be evaluated in following manner.
(((++i + ++i) + ++i) + ++i) + ++i
7 + 7 = 14
14 + 8 = 22
22 + 9 = 31
31 + 10 = 41.

Question: The program that outputs the given binary or image file

Answer: #include<stdio.h>
int main(int argc,char *argv[])
char c;
FILE* fp=fopen(argv[0],"r");

Question: #include<conio.h>
int x,y=2,z,a;
if(x=y%2) z=2;
printf("%d %d ",z,x);

Answer: Answer:
Garbage-value 0
The value of y%2 is 0. This value is assigned to x. The condition reduces to if (x) or in other words if(0) and so z goes uninitialized.
Thumb Rule: Check all control paths to write bug free code.
