30:  

Choose the correct statements

A.

Strictly speaking C supports 1-dimensional arrays only

B.

An array element may be an array by itself

C.

 Array elements need not occupy contiguous memory locations

D.

Both (a) and (b)

 
 

Option: D

Explanation :

C supports 1-dimensional arrays only. But, the array element can be an array by itself. Using this, one can simulate multi-dimensional arrays. Though at the user level, we use 2-dimen-sional arrays, the compiler interprets this as a 1-dimensional array, each of whose element is a 1-dimensional array. As a matter of fact, a declaration like char [3] [4] , will be interpreted as a 1-dimensional array of size 3 (rather than 4)—each element being a character array of length 4.
