This question concerns the following program fragment:
char r, x, y, z, w;

scanf("%c%c%c%c", &x, &y, &z, &w);
if (x < y)
r=x;
else
r=y;
if (r>z)
r=z;
if (r>w)
r=w;
printf("%c\n", r);

The program's effect can best be described as:

It displays the letter 'r' after comparing it to x, y, and z.

Of the four input characters, it displays the one that comes first in the alphabet.

Of the four input characters, it displays the one that comes last in the alphabet.

Of the four input characters, it displays the one that comes second in the alphabet.

It displays nothing since characters cannot be compared.

For what exact range of values of variable x does the following code segment display the letter 'C'?

if (x <= 200)
if (x < 100)
if (x <= 0)

else
printf("B\n");
else
printf("C\n");
else
printf("D\n");

0 < x < 100

x <= 0

100 <= x <= 200

x > 200

100 < x <= 200

The effect of the following program segment can best be described as __________.

if (x > y)
z = x;
if (x == y)
z=0;
if (x < y)
z = y;

the larger of x and y is stored in z.

the larger of x and y is stored in z unless x and y are equal, in which case z is assigned zero.

the larger of x and y is stored in z unless x and y are not equal, in which case z is assigned zero.

none of the above.

The if statement:

if (13 < 12)
printf("never\n");
else
printf("always\n");

displays never.

displays always.

will not compile since 13 is not less than 12.

causes a run-time error since 13 is not less than 12.

displays nothing since 13 is not less that 12.

1. Read the rules on homework - you make an effort to answer them, and we'll help you understand your mistakes
2. Read the rules on posting code.

Your score so far - ZERO!!!!!

The only correction I can see, and it's minor, is that postconditions is not a valid English word.
