600 = 32x + 800 10x = 200 or x = 20 kgs

A. 2^300

B. 3^200

C. Both are equal

D. Both are equal

**Ans.**
B

**Solution: **

2300 = (23)100 = 8100 3200 = (32)100 = 9100 and since 9 > 8, 3200 is
greater than 2300 3^200 > 2^300.

**
**

}

A. 5 10

B. 1 10

C. 10 1

D. Compiler Error

**Ans.**
B

**27. What will be the output of the program?**

**
**

void main( )

**
**

{

**
**

int i=4, j=8;

**
**

printf(“%d, %d, %dn”, i|j&j|i, i|j&j|i, i^j);

B. 112, 1, 12

C. 32, 1, 12

D. -64, 1, 12

**Ans.**
A

**28. What will be the output of the program?**

**
**

void main() {

**
**

short int i = 0;

**
**

for(i<=5 && i>=-1; ++i; i>0)

**
**

printf(“%u,”, i);

**
**

}

A. 1 … 65535

B. Expression syntax error

C. No output

D. 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

**Ans.**
A

**Solution: **

for(i<=5 && i>=-1; ++i; i>0) so expression i<=5
&& i>=-1 initializes for loop. In for( i <= 5 &&
i >= -1; ++i; i>0) expression i<=5 && i>=-1
evaluates to one. Loop condition always get evaluated to true. Also at
this point it increases i by one. An increment_expression i>0 has no
effect on value of i.so for loop get executed till the limit of integer
(ie. 65535)

**29. What will be the output of the program?**

**
**

void main( ) {

**
**

int i=-3, j=2, k=0, m;

**
**

m = ++i && ++j && ++k;

**
**

printf(“%d, %d, %d, %dn”, i, j, k, m);

**
**

}

**
**

A. -2, 3, 1, 1

B. 2, 3, 1, 2

C. 1, 2, 3, 1

D. 3, 3, 1, 2

**Ans.**
A

**Solution: **

m = ++i && ++j && ++k; becomes m = -2 && 3
&& 1; becomes m = TRUE && TRUE; Hence this statement
becomes TRUE. So it returns ‘1’(one). Hence m=1. printf(“%d, %d, %d,
%dn”, i, j, k, m); In the previous step the value of i,j,k are
increemented by ‘1’(one). Hence the output is “-2, 3, 1, 1”.

**30. What will be the output of the program?**

**
**

void main() {

**
**

int i, a[] = {2, 4, 6, 8, 10};

**

change(a, 5);

**
**

for(i=0; i<=4; i++)
