C Programming Multiple Choice Question - About and History
This section focuses on the "History and About" of the C programming. These Multiple Choice Questions (mcq) should be practiced to improve the C programming skills required for various interviews (campus interview, walk-in interview, company interview), placement, entrance exam and other competitive examinations.
1. Who is father of C Language?
