Predict the output of the below program:

#include <stdio.h>
#define EVEN 0
#define ODD 1
int main()
    int i = 3;
    switch (i & 1)
        case EVEN: printf("Even");
        case ODD: printf("Odd");
        default: printf("Default");
    return 0;

(A) Even
(B) Odd
(C) Default
(D) Compile-time error

Answer: (B)

Explanation: The expression i & 1 returns 1 if the rightmost bit is set and returns 0 if the rightmost bit is not set. As all odd integers have their rightmost bit set, the control goes to the block labeled ODD.
