TCS Coding Practice Question | Check Odd or Even

Given a number, the task is to check if this number is Odd or Even using Command Line Arguments. A number is called even if the number is divisible by 2 and is called odd if it is not divisible by 2.

Examples:



Input: 123
Output: No

Input: 588
Output: Yes

Approach:

  • Since the number is entered as Command line Argument, there is no need for a dedicated input line
  • Extract the input number from the command line argument
  • This extracted number will be in String type.
  • Convert this number into integer type and store it in a variable, say num
  • Check if this number is completely divided by 2
  • If completely divisible, the number is Even
  • If not completely divisible, the number is Odd

// Driver code

{
  
    int num, res = 0;
  
    // Check if the length of args array is 1
    if (argc == 1)
        printf("No command line arguments found.\n");
  
    else {
  
        // Get the command line argument and
        // Convert it from string type to integer type
        // using function "atoi( argument)"
        num = atoi(argv[1]);
  
        // Check if it is even or odd
        res = isEvenOrOdd(num);
  
        // Check if res is 0 or 1
        if (res == 0)
            // Print Even
            printf("Even\n");
        else
            // Print Odd
            printf("Odd\n");
    }
    return 0;
