Answer / shashi shekhar

In this type of question the operation done from right side of the expression.Here we can see two types of increments pre and post increment,in post first the value assigned then increment but in pre first the value is incressed then the value assigned.

For example if x is initialized with a value
"1" then the this expression gives the output "4".

Answer / shivu


printf or any other expression executes from right. So first
prefix increment. then 2 and assigned to y. and will get add
with the result again, then it will increment.
now the value of x is 3. but the output is 4.

Is This Answer Correct ?    1 Yes 0 No

Answer / prem

if x=3
y=x++ + ++x;
y will be 8
x will be 5

calculating y part
1) x++ is 3 and x will be 4
2)++x is 5 bcz x is incremented then assigned so x=5

so y finally gives 8.

You are given a string which contains some special characters. You also have set of special characters. You are given other string (call it as pattern string). Your job is to write a program to replace each special characters in given string by pattern string. You are not allowed to create new resulting string. You need to allocate some new memory to given existing string but constraint is you can only allocate memory one time. Allocate memory exactly what you need not more not less.
