(B) MCQ Quiz Z CQ
(C) TEST Quiz Z CQ
(D) GarbageValue sQuiz Z CQ


Answer: (A)

Explanation: Let us first consider **++cpp. Precedence of prefix increment and de-reference is same and associativity of both of them is right to left. So the expression is evaluated as **(++cpp). So cpp points to c+2. So we get “TEST” as output. Note the de-reference operator twice.

Similarly, you may try other expressions yourself with the help of precedence table.
