What’s the size returned for each of sizeof() operator?
(A) 4 4 4
(B) 1 4 4
(C) 1 4 8
(D) None of the above


Answer: (A)

Explanation: Irrespective of the type of pointer, the size for a pointer is always same. So whether it’s pointer to char or pointer to float, the size of any pointer would be same. Even size of a pointer to user defined data type (e.g. struct) is also would be same.
