Hi friends,
I am sorry for I will be mailing to u all the
questions i know today by 6 pm.Anyway Test was easy
.There were 48 questions.There were 3 series of quesn

Section C. ------ 30 Questions on C 
Duration 90min, no negative marking. one mark per question .
Once this is cleared then u must take a c programming test duration 40min.
5 programs,each got differnet papers.one i got was 
1.WAP find and replace a character in a string.
2.WA function to perform the substraction of two .
Eg:char N1="123",N2="478",N3=-355(N1-N2).
3.WAP dynamically intialize a 2 dimentional array Eg:5x20,accept strings and check for vowels and display the no.finally free the space allocated .
4.WAP read a line from file from location N1 to N2 using command line agruments
Eg:exe 10 20 a.c freshersworld.com 
5.WAP find the largest of 4 no using macros.

while( i >=0)
printf( "%d", i--);
how many times will the printf stmt be executed?
a)0 b)3 c)4 d)infinite
Ans: I think the answer is infinite, b'cos 'i' is an unsigned integer and it will not decrement below '0' and hence end up in an infinite loop.(yes, i checked and it is getting stuck in an infinite loop)

int i, j, temp;
if( i > j)
swap( i, j );
