(A) 10
(B) 9
(C) 8
(D) Random Number


Answer: (B)

Explanation: The function fun() basically counts number of characters in input string. Inside fun(), pointer str2 is initialized as str1. The statement while(*++str1); increments str1 till ‘\0’ is reached. str1 is incremented by 9. Finally the difference between str2 and str1 is returned which is 9.
