GATE | GATE-CS-2006 | Question 60

  • Last Updated : 17 Sep, 2021

Consider the following C code segment.




for (i = 0, i<n; i++)
{
    for (j=0; j<n; j++)
    {
        if (i%2)
        {
            x += (4*j + 5*i);
            y += (7 + 4*j);
        }
    }
}

Which one of the following is false?
(A) The code contains loop invariant computation
(B) There is scope of common sub-expression elimination in this code
(C) There is scope of strength reduction in this code
(D) There is scope of dead code elimination in this code


Answer: (D)

Explanation: Question asks about false statement


4*j is common subexpression elimination so B is true.

5*i can be moved out of inner loop so can be i%2. 
Means, A is true as we have loop invariant computation.

Next, 4*j as well as 5*i can be replaced with a = - 4;
before j loop then a = a + 4; where 4*j is computed,
likewise for 5*i. C is true as there is scope of strength 
reduction. 

By choice elimination, we have D.
