    Help me solve this programming question please......

    (Global Warming Facts Quiz) The controversial issue of global warming has been widely publicized by the film An Inconvenient Truth, featuring former Vice President Al Gore. Mr. Gore and a U.N. network of scientists, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, shared the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of “their efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change.” Research both sides of the global warming issue online (you might want to search for phrases like “global warming skeptics”). Create a five-question multiple-choice quiz on global warming, each question having four possible answers (numbered 1–4). Be ob-jective and try to fairly repre sent both sides of the issue. Next, write an application that administers the quiz, calculates the number of correct answers (zero through five) and returns a message to the user. If the user correctly answers five questions, print “Excellent”; if four, print “Very good”; if three or fewer, print “Time to brush up on your knowledge of global warming,” and include a list of some of the websites where you found your facts.

    You presumably have done the first part on creating the quiz question and answers. So, what have you done for the second part that you need help with?

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

    More like just a bunch of keywords for spam fodder.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Heh, looks like another sighting of a manbearpig.
    1. Get rid of gets(). Never ever ever use it again. Replace it with fgets() and use that instead.
    2. Get rid of void main and replace it with int main(void) and return 0 at the end of the function.
    3. Get rid of conio.h and other antiquated DOS crap headers.
    4. Don't cast the return value of malloc, even if you always always always make sure that stdlib.h is included.
