3> c/c++ section: questions on c/c++, programs o/p etc.

1) main( )

{ unsigned int i=3; while( i >=0) printf( “%d”, i–); }

how many times will the printf stmt be executed?

Ans: I think the answer is infinite, b’cos ‘i’ is an unsigned integer and it will not decrement below ‘0′ and hence end up in an infinite loop.(yes, i checked and it is getting stuck in an infinite loop)

2) main( )

{int x,y, z; x=2; y=5; z= x+++y; printf(”%d %d %d”, x, y z); }
a)3 5 7
b)option 2
c)option 3
d)option 4
Ans: a

3) # define swap(a,b) temp=a; a=b; b=temp;
main( )
{ int i, j, temp; i=5; j=10; temp=0; if( i > j) swap( i, j ); printf( “%d %d %d”, i, j, temp); }
Ans: On compiling i got ans 10, 0, 0. I did not understand the concept. Please expalin this to me.

2 class HPTest
{static HPTest x;public static void main(String args[]) { // below line not given //x=new HPTest(); if not this line Null pointer exeception x.foo();
void foo()
{ System.out.println(”Hello”); }

3: class A
{ A(int x)
{System.out.println(” x=” + x ); }
A(int x,int y)
{ System.out.println(” x=” + x + ” y =” + y); }
class HPTest4
{ public static void main(String args[])
{ A a=new A(1);
A b=new A(2,3);
A c=new A(); }

IT Gurus

They kept the name Oracle and created the RDBMS engine. Later they kept the same name for the company.

5) James Gosling,and his project is now known as Java Originally called Oak by creator James Gosling, from the tree that stood outside his window, the programming team had to look for a substitute as there was no other language with the same name.
