*/
#include <stdio.h>

int sum (int a);

int main()
{
int num, result;

printf("Enter the number: ");
scanf("%d", &num);
result = sum(num);
printf("Sum of digits in %d is %d\n", num, result);
return 0;
}

int sum (int num)
{
if (num != 0)
{
return (num % 10 + sum (num / 10));
}
else
{
return 0;
}
}```
Program Explanation

In this C program, we are reading the integer number using the ‘num’ variable. The function sum() is used to find sum of digits of a number using recursion.

In function sum() check the value of ‘num’ variable is not equal to 0. If the condition is true execute the statement. Divide the value of ‘num’ variable by 10 integer value. Add the resulted value along with the modulus of the value of ‘num’ variable. Print the sum of digits of a number using recursion.

Runtime Test Cases
```
\$ cc pgm25.c
\$ a.out
Enter the number: 2345
Sum of digits in 2345 is 14```
