• If you perceive any ambiguity in any of the questions, state your assumptions clearly.
• Questions vary in difficulty; it is strongly recommended that you do not spend too much time
on any one question.
• The exam consists of 5 pages, 5 questions, and a total of 50 points. Last paper is left
intentionally blank, for you to use if you want.
• You answer on the question sheet.
1. (5 points) Circle the correct answer among the choices given. If you circle more than one answer, you will lose the grade of the corresponding question.
(A) If we write a C program that consists of 5 C files. The output of the assembler will be: 1. five files 2. one file 3. depends on the type of the compiler 4. depends on OS
(B) By seeing the number: 0xFFFF700B we know for sure that it is a: 1. negative number 2. positive number
3. unsigned number 4. We do not know for sure
(C) Suppose we have a 32-bit machine. The size of “long int *” is: 1. 4 bytes 2. 8 bytes
3. 2 bytes 4. Depends on the OS.
(D) Suppose we have a 64-bit machine. The size of “long int *” is: 1. 4 bytes 2. 8 bytes
3. 2 bytes 4. Depends on the OS.
(E) If we write a C program that includes a parenthesis that we opened but forgot to close. Then:
1. the compiler will complain 2. the assembler will complain 2. the linker will complain 3. the loader will complain

2. [4 points] We have seen that the floating point presentation has normalized encoding and denormalized encoding. State two reasons we need denormalized encoding. Every reason must not be more than one sentence.
• To be able to present 0
• To present very small numbers.
3. [8 points] Suppose you want to include this condition in your C code: if( x & mask)
x is a char. You want the condition to be true if the third bit from the left of x is set to 1.
• What value mask must have in binary? 00100000
• What value mask must have in hexadecimal? 0x20
• Suppose x = 5, will the condition be true? Show the value of x & mask in binary to justify.
00000101 & 00100000 = 00000000→condition is false
• What if x = -5? Show the value if x in binary to justify.
11111011 & 00100000 = 00100000→condition is true

4. Suppose we have the following piece of C code (%p in printf just prints the address in hex):
void foo(int i) {
char a[2]; double d= 3.14;
a[i] = 0xFFFFABCD;
printf(“%d”, d);
a. [2 points] How many bytes does array a require?
b. [2 points] Suppose array a is stored at address A1. What is the address of a[0]? What is the address of a[1]?
a[0] will be stored in A1 a[1] will be stored in A1+1
c. [3 points] Suppose array a is stored at address A1. Will variable d always be stored in memory after array a? Justify.
Not necessarily. It depends on whether the OS will find an empty spot, big enough, for d after the array a.
d. [3 points] Something is wrong with the line: a[i] = 0xFFFFABCD; What is it?
a is an array of characters. The number assigned to a[i] is outside the range that a
character can present.
e. If we call the function foo as follows: foo(2);
[3 points] What will happen?
You will overwrite whatever is stored after array a in memory. The compiler may not complain especially if foo() is called at runtime with a number not known during compilation.
[3 points] Will this affect the value of d? Justify
If d is stored just after array a, it will be affected. Otherwise, no.

5. Given the following C code:
int compute(int a, int b) {
while (b != 0) {
c = (a & b) << 1; a=a^b; b=c; return a; } a. [4 points] Suppose the two inputs to the above function are: a = 10 and b = 20 What will the function return (both in decimal and in binary)? It will return 0000...011110 → 30 in decimal b. [3 points] Given the above two inputs ( a= 10, b = 20), how many times will the above loop execute? For each iteration, write down the value of c. The loop will be executed once. c will have the value 0 c. [4 points] Assume x = 5 and we call compute(~x, 1), what will be the value returned (in binary and decimal). [Hint, you can use dots “...” to represent repeated bits when you state the binary result] 5 → 00000....0101 ~5 → 11111...1010 the output will be 111111..1011→-5 d. [6 points] Suppose we have two pointer int * k and int * m declared inside compute. Write three statements: one to make k point to a, the second to make m points to be, and the third to execute statement a=a^b; using only k and m. k = &a; m = &b; *k = (*k)^(*m); 程序代写 CS代考 加微信: cscodehelp QQ: 2235208643 Email: kyit630461@163.com
