Focus more on pointer and recursion

You can expect questions involving pointers and recursion. Also because solving recursive problems is a bit tough, they are generally mixed with pointers to add more complexity to them.

Arrays + functions and parameter passing

Pointers mixed with arrays will add complexity to questions. Arrays are always passed as reference to functions. Array cannot be passed as value to a function. Using such concepts complexities are added to GATE questions.
