What will happen if in a C program you assign a value to an array element whose subscript exceeds the size of array?
Answer: Option C
If the index of the array size is exceeded, the program will crash. Hence "option c" is the correct answer. But the modern compilers will take care of this kind of errors.
Example: Run the below program, it will crash in Windows (TurboC Compiler)
Since C is a compiler dependent language, it may give different outputs at different platforms. We have given the Turbo-C Compiler (Windows) output.
Please try the above programs in Windows (Turbo-C Compiler) and Linux (GCC Compiler), you will understand the difference better.
