Conditional or Ternary operator


Check condtion if true,it returns first varibales value otherwise return second values. sometimes it replaces if..else statement


Condition? Expression1: Expression2


(a>10) ? b : c

Explanation For Conditional or Ternary operator 

Given that

a, b, c

are expressions;

the expression

(a>10) ? b : c

has as its value b if a is nonzero, and c otherwise. Only expression b or c is evaluated.


Expressions b and c must be of the same data type. If they are not, but are both arithmetic data types, the usual arithmetic conversions are applied to make their types the same. It is also called ternary operators.

Example Program For Conditional or Ternary operator 

#include <stdio.h>

//Conditional or Ternary operator Example Program In C

void main() {

  int a = 10;

  int b = 15;

  int c;

  c = a <= b ? a : b;

  printf("C Is %d", c);


Sample Output:
