The minimum number of fields with each node of doubly linked list is
(A) 1
(B) 2
(C) 3
(D) 4

Answer: (C)

Explanation: In general, each node of doubly link list always has 3 fields, i.e., the previous node pointer, the data field, and the next node pointer, see – doubly linked list introduction

So, answer should be option (C) 3.

However, each node of doubly linked list can have only 2 fields, i.e., XOR pointer field, and data field. This XOR pointer field can points both previous node and next node, this is the best case with data field. This is called as memory efficient doubly linked list, see – XOR linked list – a memory efficient doubly linked list | set 1

Also, if we remove data node from the XOR linked list, then each node of this doubly linked list can have only 1 field, i.e., XOR pointer field. But, this is without data field so, this doubly linked list does not make sense.
