Question #186 Difficulty: 2

According to the C++17 standard, what is the output of this program?

    #include <iostream>
#include <typeinfo>

void takes_pointer(int* pointer) {
  if (typeid(pointer) == typeid(int[])) std::cout << 'a';
  if (typeid(pointer) == typeid(int*)) std::cout << 'p';

void takes_array(int array[]) {
  if (typeid(array) == typeid(int[])) std::cout << 'a';
  if (typeid(array) == typeid(int*)) std::cout << 'p';

int main() {
  int* pointer = nullptr;
  int array[1];


  std::cout << (typeid(int*) == typeid(int[]));


Arrays and pointers are not the same, but can often be used interchangeably.
