    return 0;
}

A. 5

B. 6

C. 9

D. Error

E. None of the above

Answer: Option C

Solution(By Examveda Team)

x[i] is equivalent to *(x + i),
so (buf + 1)[5] is *(buf + 1 + 5), i.e. buf[6].

    How are you do these process
    Because in the program you write (buf+1)[5]
    And in your suggestion you say that *(but+1)[5]
    Meance the meaning is change because of astrik(*)
