Name: ____________________________________________ 2 Problem 1 (20 points): Short Answers Please answer concisely. If your answer requires more than a few words or a simple figure, it is probably wrong. Part A (5 points): Consider the following C function. int mystery () { int x = 1; int y = 10; do { y = y + x; if (4 < x) { break; } x = x * 2; } while (20 > y); printf ("%d\n", y); /* A(i) refers to this line. */ return x; /* A(ii) refers to this line. */ } i) What number does the call to printf in the mystery function output to the display? ii) What value does the mystery function return? Part B (5 points): Consider the C code snippet below. int a = 10; int b = 5; int c = 10; c = (a++) + (--b) + c; Write the values of the three variables after all of the assignments have completed. a ___________ b ___________ c ___________

Name: ____________________________________________ 3 Part C (5 points): Consider the following C program. #include <stdio.h> int glob = 42; void fn (); int main () { double mine = 3.8; printf ("glob=%d\n", glob); fn (); return 0; } void fn () { glob = mine; printf ("glob=%d\n", glob); } The code contains a single error. Explain the error. Part D (5 points): Most functions require a specific number of arguments. A few, such as scanf , take a variable number of arguments. In the C declaration below, the ellipsis (±²³) following the first argument indicates that a variable number of additional arguments can be passed. void variable_args (int num_args, . ..); For the variable_args function, the num_args argument indicates the number of additional arguments. For example, the call variable_args (2, 4, 5) indicates that two additional arguments (4 and 5) are being passed. When a compiler generates assembly code for a call to the variable_args function, should the num_args argument be pushed first or last (or does it not matter, if all compilers are required make the same choice)? Explain your answer.
