Triples and quadruples are actually representations of intermediate code ..

Triple is defined as :

Each instruction in triples presentation has three fields : op, arg1, and arg2.The results of respective sub-expressions are denoted by the position of expression. 

So the disadvantage which is evident is we can change the position of statements and hence inefficient from code optimisation point of view..

 

But the advantage is less space is required as compared to quadruple notation..

Hence C) should be correct answer..

saurab its asking advantage...we cant move statements in triples..only less space is wasted there..c is right

In a triple representation, if we want to move a statement then  we must change all of the pointers.So this will not be advantage.
@Sudho yes C should be correct .But Ans given is B.
srry i m also thinking that C is correct bt wrongly i mark as a now corrected
thnx....
