{

       float c; int j;

        va_list ptr;

        va_start (ptr, num);

        for ( j = 1; j <= num; j++)

        {

            c = va_arg ( ptr, float );

Yes, using the realloc() function as shown below:


main()


{


        int *p;


        p = ( int *) malloc (20) ;


        t = p;


        t = (int *) realloc ( p, 40);


        if ( t == NULL )


        Printf (" Cannot reallocate, leaves previous allocated region unchanged ");


       else


       {


              if ( p ==t )


              ;  / * the array expanded at the same region */


             else


            { 


                 free ( p ); / * deallocate the original array */


                 p = t;  /* set p to newly allocated region */
