option B is true but the question asking which is false so ans is C,but what is option A ,if list is empty , function crashes ...??
yes, because when head is NULL, head->next throws invalid memory access error.
@Arjun Sir, when we try to access an invalid memory do we get an error or it works considering that memory and gives garbage value.

For example : PRINT(*(4615)) Does it print bit pattern stored at location 4615 or error?

Another example : int *a = 62; Does it point to memory 62( which is garbage value) or error.?

Best answer

The only option false in the above question is (C)

 

Reasons To back my Answer:

1. It is always required to chek the underflow and overflow conditions. It will throw an error : Invalid memory access error.

2. It is obvious from the the diagram below.

3. If we move the head then the previous data will be lost , so it is always advisable to use another pointer "p" to navgate in a link list.
