C | Pointer Basics | Question 12
Consider this C code to swap two integers and these five statements after it:
S1: will generate a compilation error
S2: may generate a segmentation fault at runtime depending on the arguments passed
S3: correctly implements the swap procedure for all input pointers referring to integers stored in memory locations accessible to the process
S4: implements the swap procedure correctly for some but not all valid input pointers
S5: may add or subtract integers and pointers.
(B) S2 and S3
(C) S2 and S4
(D) S2 and S5
Explanation: S2: May generate segmentation fault if value at pointers px or py is constant or px or py points to a memory location that is invalid
S4: May not work for all inputs as arithmetic overflow can occur
