In this tutorial, we are going to write a C Program for sorting the elements of an array in descending order in C Programming with practical program code and step-by-step full complete explanation.

C Program for sorting the elements of an array in descending order


C Program for sorting the elements of an array in descending order.

 
#include<stdio.h>
#include<conio.h>
#include<stdlib.h>

void main()
{
    int *arr,temp,i,j,n;


    printf("Enter the number of elements in the array");
    scanf("%d",&n);

    arr = (int*)malloc(sizeof(int)*n);
    
    for(i=0;i<n;i++)
    {
        printf("\nEnter a number:");
        scanf("%d",&arr[i]);
    }

    for(i=0;i<n;i++)
    {
        for(j=i+1;j<n;j++)
        {
            if(arr[i]<arr[j])
            {
                temp=arr[i];
                arr[i]=arr[j];
                arr[j]=temp;
            }
        }
    }

    printf("Elements of array in descending order are\n");

    for(i=0;i<n;i++)
        printf("%d\t",arr[i]);

    getch();
}


Output

 
Enter the number of elements in  the array: 5
Enter a number: 32
Enter a number: 43
Enter a number: 23
Enter a number: 57
Enter a number: 47

Elements of array in descending order are:
57 47 43 32 23
