What is the output of the following program : 

Python3

print 0.1 + 0.2 == 0.3

                    
(A)

True

(B)

False

(C)

Machine dependent

(D)

Error



Answer: (B)

Explanation:

Neither of 0.1, 0.2 and 0.3 can be represented accurately in binary. The round off errors from 0.1 and 0.2 accumulate and hence there is a difference of 5.5511e-17 between (0.1 + 0.2) and 0.3.
