Algorithms Quiz | SP2 Contest 1 | Question 6
  • Last Updated : 28 Aug, 2018

Predict the output of the below C program:




#include <stdio.h>
  
int main()
{
    int a = - -3;
      
    printf("a=%d", a);
  
    return 0;
}

(A) a=3
(B) a=-3
(C) a=2
(D) None of the above


Answer: (A)

Explanation: Notice the space between the two minus(-) operators. Here unary operation minus(-) is applied twice instead of the pre-decrement operator, we know in maths that minus*minus gives plus. Therefore, – -3 = -(-3) = 3.
