i wrote this program as an answer to a question given in my book but the output always displays incorrectly

#include <iostream.h>
#include <conio.h>
#include <string.h>
#include <stdio.h>

class Clothing
    {
    //private data members
    char Code[5];
    char Type[20];
    int Size;
    char Material[20];
    float Price;

    public:
    //constructor

    Clothing()
        {
        strcpy(Code,"NOT ASSIGNED");
        strcpy(Type,"NOT ASSIGNED");
        strcpy(Material,"NOT ASSIGNED");
        Size=0;
        Price=0;
        }
    //price calculation
    void Calc_Price()
        {
        if (strcmp(Material,"COTTON")==0 || strcmp(Material,"cotton")==0 ||strcmp(Material,"Cotton")==0)
            {
            if (strcmp(Type,"TROUSER")==0 || strcmp(Type,"trouser")==0 ||strcmp(Type,"Trouser")==0)
                {Price=1500;}
            else if (strcmp(Type,"SHIRT")==0 || strcmp(Type,"shirt")==0 ||strcmp(Type,"Shirt")==0)
                {Price=1200;}
            }
        else if (strcmp(Material,"COTTON")!=0 || strcmp(Material,"cotton")!=0 ||strcmp(Material,"Cotton")!=0)
            {if (strcmp(Type,"TROUSER")==0 || strcmp(Type,"trouser")==0 ||strcmp(Type,"Trouser")==0)
                {Price=1125;}
            else if (strcmp(Type,"SHIRT")==0 || strcmp(Type,"shirt")==0 ||strcmp(Type,"Shirt")==0)
                {Price=900;}
            }
        }

    //inputing values
    void Enter()
        {
        cin>>Code>>Type>>Size>>Material;
        Calc_Price();
        }
    //displaying values
    void Show()
        {clrscr();
        cout<<Code<<endl;
        cout<<Type<<endl;
        cout<<Size<<endl;
        cout<<Material<<endl;
        cout<<"Rs."<<Price;
        }
};

void main()
    {
    clrscr();
    Clothing c;   //object created
    c.Enter();
    clrscr();
    c.Show();
    getch();
    }

say the input is

code:53e10
type:trouser
size:42
material:cotton

the output should display

53e10
trouser
42
cotton
Rs.1500

but instead it displays

53e10trouser
trouser
42
cotton
Rs.1500

Look up again how to use a character array as a string. You are missing a couple key pieces of information about a string's length and termination character.

As WaltP said. In your Clothing constructor, you are copying too much data into the Code data member, corrupting the object. IE, this is part of the problem:

    Clothing()
    {
        strcpy(Code,"NOT ASSIGNED"); // This will corrupt the data structure.
        strcpy(Type,"NOT ASSIGNED");
        strcpy(Material,"NOT ASSIGNED");
        Size=0;
        Price=0;
    }
