1.4) Which one of the following are not valid character contants? [8]
Select any two.
(a)char c = '\u00001' ;
(b)char c = '\101';
(c)char c = 65;
(d)char c = '\1001' ;

here the values in option b and d are taken to be octal values is it so??octal values should start with 0 ..right ...

please help


Thanks & Regards<br /> <br />-Srikanth
