Palindrome Bit

To Find the bit k’th position from right :

                                                            “   x & (  1 << (  k - 1  )  )  

// This function returns true if k'th bit in x is set (or 1).
// For example if x (0010) is 2 and k is 2, then it returns true
bool isKthBitSet(unsigned int x, unsigned int k)
    return (x & (1 << (k-1)))? true: false;
// This function returns true if binary representation of x is
// palindrome. For example (1000...001) is paldindrome
bool isPalindrome(unsigned int x)
    int l = 1; // Initialize left position
    int r = sizeof(unsigned int)*8; // initialize right position
    // One by one compare bits
    while (l < r)
        if (isKthBitSet(x, l) != isKthBitSet(x, r))
            return false;
        l++;     r--;
    return true;

The number from right to left and generate another number using these bits from left to right.

int isBitPalindrome(int x) {
    int reversed = 0, aux = x;
    while (aux > 0) {
                       Taking LSB of aux and putting it as LSB of reversed
                       variable. Before doing that shifting reversed to 
                       right, to build it from left to right.
                     reversed = (reversed  << 1) | (aux & 1);

                      Loop is depend of number of bits in aux. Taking next bit into 
                      LSB position by shifting aux toward right once.
                     aux = aux >> 1;
    return (reversed  == x) ? 1 : 0;

Note : All the programs are tested under Turbo C/C++ compilers.
It is assumed that,
Programs run under DOS environment, The underlying machine is an x86 system, Program is compiled using Turbo C/C++ compiler.
The program output may depend on the information based on this assumptions (for example sizeof(int) == 2 may be assumed).
Predict the output or error(s) for the following:

void main()
int const * p=5; printf("%d",++(*p));
Compiler error: Cannot modify a constant value.
p is a pointer to a "constant integer". But we tried to change the value of the "constant integer".
char s[ ]="man"; int i;
for(i=0;s[ i ];i++)
printf("\n%c%c%c%c",s[ i ],*(s+i),*(i+s),i[s]);
Answer: mmmm
aaaa nnnn

Zoho Interview | Set 1 (Advanced Programming Round)

Third Round: (Advanced Programming Round) Here they asked us to create a “Railway reservation system” and gave us 4 modules. The modules were:
    1. Booking
    2. Availability checking
    3. Cancellation
    4. Prepare chart
We were asked to create the modules for representing each data first and to continue with the implementation phase.

 My Solution :
