Determine Output:
void main()
      char *p;
      printf("%d %d", sizeof(*p), sizeof(p));

A. 1 1

B. 1 2

C. 2 1

D. 2 2

Answer: Option B

Solution(By Examveda Team)

The sizeof() operator gives the number of bytes taken by its operand. P is a character pointer, which needs one byte for storing its value (a character). Hence sizeof(*p) gives a value of 1. Since it needs two bytes to store the address of the character pointer sizeof(p) gives 2.
