MCQs on Conditional Statements & Loops - C Programming Multiple Choice questions with answers

1 Assume that i,j and k are integer variables and their values are 8, 5 and 0 respectively. What will be the values of variables i and k after executing the following expression?


What will be the result of execution?

A -3 and 3
B 3 and -5
C 3 and -3
D -5 and 3

Answer: Option [D]

Given that the values of i,j and k are 8, 5 and 0 respectively. The first statement j>5 is not executed because j=5 and i<5 is also not executed. So the program evaluate k-j, which is, 0-5=-5. So afetre execution of first expression the values are 8, 5 and -5 respectively.

In the second statement the values of k, i are non zero. so it is true for both. So the values of i, j and k are 3, 5 and -5

2 Find the error in the following program:

		int m;
		char g;
			case 3: grade="P";break;
			case 2: grade="Q";break;
			case 1: grade="R";break;
			default: grade="S";break;

What will be the output of the program?

A Undefined symbol "grade"
B switch statement cannot have more than three labels
C case label cannot be numbers
