﻿ C Program: Delete an element at a specified position

# C Exercises: Delete an element at desired position from an array

## C Array: Exercise-15 with Solution

Write a program in C to delete an element at a desired position from an array.

Visual Presentation:

Sample Solution:

C Code:

``````#include <stdio.h>

void main() {
int arr1[50], i, pos, n;

// Prompt user for input
printf("\n\nDelete an element at the desired position from an array:\n");
printf("---------------------------------------------------------\n");
printf("Input the size of the array : ");
scanf("%d", &n);

// Input values for the array
printf("Input %d elements in the array in ascending order:\n", n);
for (i = 0; i < n; i++) {
printf("element - %d : ", i);
scanf("%d", &arr1[i]);
}

// Input the position to delete
printf("\nInput the position where to delete: ");
scanf("%d", &pos);

// Locate the position in the array
i = 0;
while (i != pos - 1)
i++;

// Shift elements to the left to replace the deleted element
while (i < n) {
arr1[i] = arr1[i + 1];
i++;
}
n--;

// Display the new list after deletion
printf("\nThe new list is : ");
for (i = 0; i < n; i++) {
printf("  %d", arr1[i]);
}
printf("\n\n");
}
```
```

Sample Output:

```Delete an element at desired position from an array :
---------------------------------------------------------
Input the size of array : 5
Input 5 elements in the array in ascending order:
element - 0 : 1
element - 1 : 2
element - 2 : 3
element - 3 : 4
element - 4 : 5

Input the position where to delete: 3

The new list is :   1  2  4  5
```
