24. The following function reverse() is supposed to reverse a singly linked list. There is one line missing at the end of the function.

struct node
int data;
struct node* next;
static void reverse(struct node** head_ref)
struct node* prev = NULL;
struct node* current = *head_ref;
struct node* next;
while (current != NULL)
next = current->next;
current->next = prev;
current = next;
What should be added in place of “/*ADD A STATEMENT HERE*/”, so that the function correctly reverses a linked list.

A. *head_ref = prev;
B. *head_ref = current;
C. *head_ref = next;
D. *head_ref = NULL;

25. he following C function takes a single-linked list of integers as a parameter and rearranges the elements of the list. The function is called with the list containing the integers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 in the given order. What will be the contents of the list after the function completes execution?

struct node
int value;
struct node *next;
void rearrange(struct node *list)
struct node *p, * q;
int temp;
if ((!list) || !list->next)
p = list;
q = list->next;
temp = p->value;
p->value = q->value;
q->value = temp;
p = q->next;
q = p?p->next:0;

A. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7
B. 2, 1, 4, 3, 6, 5, 7
C. 1, 3, 2, 5, 4, 7, 6
D. 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 1
