Conditional Operators in C Language

C Operator Definition

As studied earlier, Operators are the symbols, which performs operations on various data items known as operands. For Example: in a a+b, a and b are operands and + is an operator.

Note:- To perform an operation, operators and operands are combined together forming an expression. For example, to perform an addition operation on operands a and b, the addition(+) operator is combined with the operands a and b forming an expression.

C Conditional Operators

The conditional operators are also called ternary operators. A conditional operators forms an expression that will have one of two values, depending on the truth value of another expression.

The expression can be written in place of an if-else statement. A conditional expression is written in the form expression1 ? expression2:expression3 When evaluating a conditional expression, expression1 is evaluated first.

If expression1 is tru(i.e., if its value is nonzero), then expression2 is evaluated and this becomes the value of the conditional expression.



 Enter a signed numbe
 Absolute value = 22
 Enter a signed number:23
 Absolute value = 23
