b) myworld(note:2 spaces before myworld)
c) myworld (note:2 spaces after myworld)
d) myw(note:6 spaces after myw)
View Answer

Answer: a
Explanation: In the format represented by “%10.*s”, the width of the string will be 10 spaces which is aligned to the right, by default. Since we have asterisk (*) after the precision dot (.), the value of precision will be the value stored in the variable i. The value of i is 3, so this signifies max length of the string as 3 characters. So, the final formatted output will be a 10 character output with 3 characters “myw” printed with right alignment and the 1st 7 characters will be simply space characters.
