C | Operators | Question 23
  • Difficulty Level : Easy
  • Last Updated : 20 Jan, 2014

Predict the output of following program?




# include <stdio.h>
int main()
{
    int x = 10;
    int y = 20;
    x += y += 10;
    printf (" %d %d", x, y);
    return 0;
}

(A) 40 20
(B) 40 30
(C) 30 30
(D) 30 40


Answer: (B)

Explanation: The main statement in question is “x += y += 10”. Since there are two += operators in the statement, associativity comes into the picture. Associativity of compound assignment operators is right to left, so the expression is evaluated as x += (y += 10).
