Answer / jasmeet

Firstly wehave assigned that:
$a=5;
and now we have:
$b=a; //as it has said that $b= character 'a' whose ascii
value=95.

Now we need $$b;
so thw answer becomes:
$$b => $(95).
here 95 will again used as an ascii value and it will
call 'a'.
So the result comes out be 5.
not 100.
Check before writing any silly Question.

Answer / adeshsuryan

Correct format of this program is following check out this:
<?php
$a=5;
echo $b=a;
echo $$b;

?>
Dear Annonymus : You assign a constant in $$b not character.
your code is echo $b='a'."<br/>";
where 'a' treats as constant .but above a is a variable
keep this thing in mind.
