hi, my name is vic...i got one problem cannot fix....output for the number of times each of the tasks has been invoked...i run 3 times each of the tasks but the output always is this program has run 1 times.....

#include<stdio.h>
#include<stdlib.h>

void doTaskA(){
    printf("Start of Task A\n\n");
    int input_1, input_2, input_3;
    printf("Start of TASK A\n\n");
    printf("Please enter 3 integer.\n");
    scanf("%d\n%d\n%d",&input_1, &input_2, &input_3);
    if ((input_3>input_1) && (input_3>input_2))
        printf("/nThe biggest number is %d\n", input_3);
    else if ((input_2>input_1) && (input_2>input_3))
        printf("/nThe biggest number is %d\n", input_2);
    else 
        printf("/nThe biggest number is %d\n",input_1);

}



void doTaskB(){
int row, c, n, temp;

   printf("Start of Task B\n\n");
printf("Enter the number of rows in pyramid of stars you wish to see ");
   scanf("%d",&n);

   temp = n;

   for ( row = 1 ; row <= n ; row++ )
   {
      for ( c = 1 ; c < temp ; c++ )
         printf(" ");

      temp--;

      for ( c = 1 ; c <= 2*row - 1 ; c++ )
         printf("*");

      printf("\n");
   }

}



void doTaskC(){
 int n, c, k, space;
  printf("Start of Task c\n\n");

  scanf("%d", &n);

   space = 0;

   for ( k = n ; k >= 1 ; k-- )
   {
       for ( c = 1 ; c <= space ; c++ )
       printf(" ");

       space++;

       for ( c = 1 ; c <= k ; c++)
          printf("%d", c);

       printf("\n");
   }


}



void displayMenu(int &option) {



   printf("\nPlease choose one of the following :");
   printf("\n\n1. Task A\n");
   printf("2. Task B\n");
   printf("3. Task C\n");
   printf("4. Task D ( Exit This Program )\n");


   printf("\nPlease enter your selection :");
   scanf("%d",&option);

}

void howMany(){   

   static int count = 0;
   count++;


   printf("This program has run"  " %d "  "times\n\n\n",count);

   system("pause");

  }

 int main(){
    int option =0;
    bool exit = false;
    while(!exit) {
displayMenu(option);

        switch(option) {
            case 1:
                doTaskA();
                continue; 
            case 2:
                doTaskB();
                continue;
            case 3:
                doTaskC();

You should make the 'count' variable get incremented while calling the 'displayMenu' function if that's what you want. I'm not sure though what is it that you require.
