Predict the output of the below program:


#include <stdio.h>
int main()
    printf(\"%c \", 5[\"GeeksQuiz\"]);
    return 0;


Compile-time error


Runtime error





Answer: (C)


The crux of the program lies in the expression: 5[\”GeeksQuiz\”] This expression is broken down by the compiler as: *(5 + \”GeeksQuiz\”). Adding 5 to the base address of the string increments the pointer(lets say a pointer was pointing to the start(G) of the string initially) to point to Q. Applying value-of operator gives the character at the location pointed to by the pointer i.e. Q.
