C | Input and Output | Question 6
Predict the output of below program:
(A) Compile-time error
(B) Runtime error
Explanation: The crux of the program lies in the expression: “GeeksQuiz”.
This expression is broken down by the compiler as: *(“GeeksQuiz” + 5). 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.
