1. What will be the output of the following pseudo code?

For input a = 5 & b = 5.
  function (input a, input b)
  If (a < b)
  return function (b, a)
  elseif (b != 0)
  return (a * function (a, b - 1))
  else
  return 0

This is a recursive code the function fun(int x, int y) will keep on calling itself until the value of x becomes zero, and when the base condition executes it will print the value of y
Since the value of x is 5 and it is getting decremented by 1 on every function call and the value of y is also getting decremented by 1 on every function call. On the execution of base condition the value of x will become 0(as it has been decremented by 1, 5 times) and the value of y will become 2(as it is also has been decremented by 1, 5 times) and hence the output will be 2

6. What will be the output of the following code

#define LIMIT 10 /*size of integers array*/
int main(){
    unsigned long long int i,j;
    int *primes;
    int z = 1;
    primes = malloc(sizeof(int)*LIMIT);
    for (i=2;i<LIMIT;i++)

The following code calculated the Prime Number upto the given range using the concept of Sieve method
The sieve of Eratosthenes is an ancient algorithm for finding all prime numbers up to any given limit. It does so by iteratively marking as composite the multiples of each prime, starting with the first prime number, 2.

    return a--;

When func() is called the function return value as 5 and it will be assigned to local variable a of main() function after that it will decrement the local variable a of func to 4. Now inside main function the value of a is printed as 5 and then it will increment to 6.
Hence option (B) is the correct answer

12. What will be the output of the following pseudocode?

#include<stdio.h>

int main()
{
    float m=3.0;
    switch((int)m)
    {
        case 1:
                printf("Prepinsta");
                break;
        case 2:
                printf("Prime");
                break;
        case 3:
                printf("Prepinsta Prime");
                break;

As we know switch argument allows only int value so after typecasting the variable m is converted to int type. Now the value passed will be 3 so case 3 will get executed and it will print Prepinsta prime as an output.

The value of variable val will increment 2 times so it becomes 7 after executing the body of do while loop. The variable val at while condition returns value as 7 and as we know 7>7 is false. So it will move outside the loop and after post increment the value of variable val becomes 8 which will be printed as an output.

14. What will be the output of the following pseudocode?

#include<stdio.h>
int main()
{
    int m=0;
    if(m==0)
    {
        m=((5,(m=3)),m=1);
        printf("%d",m);

Comma operator has a least priority and whenever comma operator present inside brackets then it will return the value present at the end. So the value of m will be 1.

     char *tmp;  
     tmp = s1; 
     s1 = s2; 
     s2 = tmp;

void fun2(char **s1, char **s2)  { 
     char *tmp; 
     tmp = *s1; 
     *s1 = *s2; 
     *s2 = tmp; 
}

int main ()  { 
     char *str1 = "Prepinsta", *str2 = "Prime"; 
     fun1(str1, str2);     printf("%s %s ", str1, str2); 
     fun2(&str1, &str2);   printf("%s %s ", str1, str2);

The first call to the function ‘func1(str1, str2);’ is call by value.
Hence, any change in the formal parameters are NOT reflected in actual parameters.
Hence, str1 points at “Prepinsta” and str2 points at “Prime”.
The second call to the function ‘func2(&str1, &str2);’ is call by reference.
Hence, any change in formal parameters are reflected in actual parameters.
Hence, str1 now points at “Prime” and str2 points at “Prepinsta”.

Unary + is the only dummy operator in C. So it has no effect on the expression and now the while loop is, while(i--!=0) which is false and so breaks out of while loop. The value –1 is printed due to the post-decrement operator.

    Try to first check all ques. ans their option properly then upload , they have lot of mistakes in it.

      Thanks for commenting, kindly let us know about the mistakes in details with screen shots on 8448440710 whatsapp number, we will correct it.

    in 19th qns:
    #include
    int func(int no)
    {
    static int count=0;
    count=count+no;
    return count;
    }
    void main()
    {
    int i,j;
    for(i=0;i<=5;i++)
    j=func(i);
    printf("%d",j);
    }
    they didn't mention j += func(i) how it will become add to the previous count. every time they are adding i to count = 0; it will become 5 i think so. if any one give the explanation please.


  • divyanisha2005

    In question1 :
    For input a = 5 & b = 5.
    function (input a, input b)
    If (a < b)
    return function (b, a)
    elseif (b != 0)
    return (a * function (a, b – 1))
    else
    return 0

    The function call for arguments a=5, b = 0 will return 0. So, final answer should be 0.
    Correct me if I am wrong but I think the right options are not given in the options.
    Thank you.
