Step by Step solution

  1. Number of row

    Is has 5row , so first loop will execute for 5 time

#include <stdio.h>
int main()

{

    int i, j;

    for(i=1;i<=5;i++)

    
{......
 }



    return 0;

  1. Number of character

It has only one type of character , so there will be only one nested loop

#include <stdio.h>
int main()

{

......
 
        for(j=5;j>=i;j--)
        {
            printf("%d",j);
        }
        printf("\n");
 return 0;

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
  1. Number of column

It has 6 maximum column and is decreasing with row number , so the nested loop decrease it's repetation with increase in row

#include <stdio.h>

............
      
        for(j=5;j>=i;j--)
        {
            printf("%d",j);
        }
        printf("\n");
...................


    return 0;
