Q.52 (NAT)

 Consider the following C program:


#include 
int main(){
    float sum = 0.0, j = 1.0, i = 2.0;
    while (i/j > 0.0625){
        j = j + j;
        sum = sum + i/j;
        printf("%f\n", sum);
    }
    return 0;
}

The number of times the variable sum will be printed, when the above program is executed, is _________________.

Answer

#include 
int main()
{
    int a[] = {2, 4, 6, 8, 10};
    int i, sum = 0, *b = a + 4;
    for (i = 0; i < 5; i++)
        sum = sum + (*b – i) – *(b – i);
    printf (“%d\n”, sum);
    return 0;
}

The output of the above C program is __________.
