C Quiz – 102 | Question 2
In the context of the following printf() in C, pick the best statement.
(A) Only i) would compile. And it will print 8.
(B) Both i) and ii) would compile. i) will print 8 while ii) will print 90
(C) All i), ii), iii) and iv) would compile successfully and they will print 8, 90, 200 & 7000 respectively.
(D) Only i), iii) and iv) would compile successfully. They will print 8, 128 and 3584 respectively.
As per C standard, “An octal constant consists of the prefix 0 optionally followed by a sequence of the digits 0 through 7 only.”
So 090 isn’t valid because 0 prefix is used for octal but 9 isn’t valid octal-digit.
