:) Good one. It checks my eye sight. This piece of code would result in an error: "undefined symbol Y".

It would not compile at the very first. So, there is no scope to run this program. Conclusion is, it would not print anything on the output window.

Hi Pravalika, First thing is you should not ask questions like this (o/p of program etc..), as you can always verify with any compiler you use. You should always ask questions like why such thing..? (Ex. you can ask why the o/p of above program is 5?) Thanks, Janardhan.

First of all writing such code is not valid but still output concern it is 2, because scanf is library function and it have two parameters
