Consider this C code to swap two integers and these five statements after it:




void swap(int *px, int *py) 
   *px = *px - *py; 
   *py = *px + *py; 
   *px = *py - *px; 
}


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.
