    Your right, this is a simple question. Answer: not possible.

    Are you sure you arent leaving out important information one would need to answer this question (ie more context, etc)? Not that we will just give you an answer to the more detailed/actual question.

    The way I read the question was that the task is to determine what the particular compiler/OS system combination. And with the knowledge of which compiler on which OS, then you CAN find out that information.

    Of course, we are not going to do your homework for you!
