Welcome to C Programming Quiz, Entry Level !!

Question 1. Which of the following operations can be performed on the file "NOTES.TXT" using the below code?
FILE *fp;
fp = fopen("NOTES.TXT", "r+");




read and write

Question 2. How will you free the memory allocated by the following program?
#define MAXROW 3
#define MAXCOL 4

int main()
    int **p, i, j;
    p = (int **) malloc(MAXROW * sizeof(int*));
    return 0;

memfree(int p)


malloc(p, 0)


Question 3. Identify which of the following are declarations
1:   extern int x;
2:   float square ( float x ) { ... }
3:   double pow(double, double);



1 and 3


Question 4. What are the different types of real data type in C ?

float, double

short int, double, long int

float, double, long double

double, long int, float

Question 5. What is the purpose of "rb" in fopen() function used below in the code?
FILE *fp;
fp = fopen("source.txt", "rb");

open "source.txt" in binary mode for reading

open "source.txt" in binary mode for reading and writing

Create a new file "source.txt" for reading and writing

none of the above

Question 6. Which of the following statements should be used to obtain a remainder after dividing 3.14 by 2.1 ?

rem = 3.14 % 2.1;

rem = modf(3.14, 2.1);

rem = fmod(3.14, 2.1);

Remainder cannot be obtain in floating point division.

Question 7. Is there any difference between following declarations?
1:  extern int fun();
2:  int fun();

Both are identical

No difference, except extern int fun(); is probably in another file

int fun(); is overrided with extern int fun();

None of the above

Question 8. Which statement will you add in the following program to work it correctly?
int main()
    printf("%f\n", log(36.0));
    return 0;





Question 9. Which bitwise operator is suitable for checking whether a particular bit is on or off?

&& operator

& operator

|| operator

! operator

Question 10. In C, if you pass an array as an argument to a function, what actually gets passed?

Value of elements in array

First element of the array

Base address of the array

Address of the last element of array
