is the ans a legal statement? I have never seen it before,I think the normal format should be 'b?x=y:x=z;'

Hello Wei -
Answer B is legal; but it's really two operations in one statement. The conditional (or ternary) operator is evaluated first, then the assignment. Therefore the result of the ternary operator is assigned to x.
