What is the percentage change in area?

A. 25% increase

B. 50% increase

C. 50% decrease

D. 75% decrease

Ans. B

Solution:

Let original length = x and original breadth = y. Original area = xy.
New length =x/2 New breadth = 3y. New area=[(x/2)*3y]=(3/2)xy Increase
% =[(1/2)xy*(1/xy)*100]%=50%

17. The difference between the length and breadth of a rectangle is 23
m. If its perimeter is 206 m, then its area is:

A. 1520 m2

B. 2420 m2

C. 2480 m2

D. 2520 m2

21. What will be the output of the program?

#include

int main()

{

char p[] = “%dn”;

p[1] = ‘c’;

printf(p, 65);

return 0;

}

A. A

B. a

C. c

D. 65

Ans. A

Solution:

Step 1: char p[] = “%dn”; The variable p is declared as an array of
characters and initialized with string “%d” Step 2: p[1] = ‘c’; Here,
we overwrite the second element of array p by ‘c’. So array p becomes
“%c”. Step 3: printf(p, 65); becomes printf(“%c”, 65); Therefore it
prints the ASCII value of 65. The output is ‘A’.

22. What will be the output of the program?

#include

#include

int main()

{

char str1[20] = “Hello”, str2[20] = ” World”;

printf(“%sn”, strcpy(str2, strcat(str1, str2)));

return 0;

}

A. Hello

B. World

C. Hello World

D. WorldHello

Ans. C

Solution:

Step 1: char str1[20] = “Hello”, str2[20] = ” World”; The variable
str1and str2 is declared as an array of characters and initialized with
value “Hello” and ” World” respectively. Step 2: printf(“%sn”,
strcpy(str2, strcat(str1, str2))); => strcat(str1, str2)) it append
the string str2 to str1. The result will be stored in str1. Therefore
str1 contains “Hello World”. => strcpy(str2, “Hello World”) it
copies the “Hello World” to the variablestr2. Hence it prints “Hello
World”.

Ans. C

Solution:

printf(“%e,”, d); Here ‘%e’ specifies the “Scientific Notation” format.
So, it prints the 2.25 as 2.250000e+000. printf(“%f,”, d); Here ‘%f’
specifies the “Decimal Floating Point” format. So, it prints the 2.25
as 2.250000. printf(“%g,”, d); Here ‘%g’ “Use the shorter of %e or %f”.
So, it prints the 2.25 as 2.25. printf(“%lf,”, d); Here ‘%lf’ specifies
the “Long Double” format. So, it prints the 2.25 as 2.250000.

26. What will be the output of the program?

#include

#include

int main()

{

float n=1.54;

printf(“%f, %fn”, ceil(n), floor(n));

return 0;

}

A. 2.000000, 1.000000

B. 1.500000, 1.500000

C. 1.550000, 2.000000

D. 1.000000, 2.000000

Ans. A

Solution:

ceil(x) round up the given value. It finds the smallest integer not
< x. floor(x) round down the given value. It finds the smallest
integer not > x. printf(“%f, %fn”, ceil(n), floor(n)); In this line
ceil(1.54) round up the 1.54 to 2 and floor(1.54) round down the 1.54
to 1. In the printf(“%f, %fn”, ceil(n), floor(n)); statement, the
format specifier “%f %f” tells output to be float value. Hence it
prints 2.000000 and 1.000000.

27. What will be the output of the program?

#include

int main()

{

float a=0.7;

if(a < 0.7f)

printf(“Cn”);

else

printf(“C++n”);

return 0;

}

A. C

B. C++

C. Compiler error

D. Non of above

Ans. B

Solution:

if(a < 0.7f) here a is a float variable and 0.7f is a float
constant. The float variable a is not less than 0.7f float constant.
But both are equal. Hence the ifcondition is failed and it goes to else
it prints ‘C++’

28. What will be the output of the program?

#include

int main()

{

float f=43.20;

printf(“%e, “, f);

printf(“%f, “, f);

printf(“%g”, f);

return 0;

}

A. 4.320000e+01, 43.200001, 43.2

B. 4.3, 43.22, 43.21

C. 4.3e, 43.20f, 43.00

D. Error

Ans. A

Solution:

printf(“%e, “, f); Here ‘%e’ specifies the “Scientific Notation”
format. So, it prints the 43.20 as 4.320000e+01. printf(“%f, “, f);
Here ‘%f’ specifies the “Decimal Floating Point” format. So, it prints
the 43.20 as 43.200001. printf(“%g, “, f); Here ‘%g’ “Use the shorter
of %e or %f”. So, it prints the 43.20 as 43.2.

29. If the size of an integer is 4 bytes, What will be the output of
the program?

#include

#include

int main()

{

printf(“%dn”, strlen(“123456”));

return 0;

}

A. 6

B. 12

C. 7

D. 2

Ans. A

Solution:

The function strlen returns the number of characters int the given
string. Therefore, strlen(“123456”) contains 6 characters. The output
of the program is “6”.

30. What will be the output of the program?

#include

int main()

{

int arr[5], i=0;

while(i<5)

arr[i]=++i;

for(i=0; i<5; i++)

printf(“%d, “, arr[i]);

return 0;

}

A. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5,

B. Garbage value, 1, 2, 3, 4,

C. 0, 1, 2, 3, 4,

D. 2, 3, 4, 5, 6,

Ans. B

Solution:

Since C is a compiler dependent language, it may give different outputs
at different platforms. We have given the TurboC Compiler (Windows)
output. Please try the above programs in Windows (Turbo-C Compiler) and
Linux (GCC Compiler), you will understand the difference better.

comparison. ‘Unlike the desires of animals, human desires are
insatiable’ is the suggested meaning. Hence the correction is
‘unlike those of animals’.
