Pictorial Presentation:

Check whether an alphabet is a vowel or consonant

Sample Solution:

C Code:

#include <stdio.h>
void main()  
{  
    char sing_ch;  
    
    printf("Input any alphabet : ");  
    scanf("%c", &sing_ch);  
  
    if(sing_ch=='a' || sing_ch=='e' || sing_ch=='i' || sing_ch=='o' || sing_ch=='u' || sing_ch=='A' || sing_ch=='E' || sing_ch=='I' || sing_ch=='O' 

|| sing_ch=='U')  
    {  
        printf("The alphabet is a vowel.\n");  
    }  
    else if((sing_ch>='a' && sing_ch<='z') || (sing_ch>='A' && sing_ch<='Z'))  
    {  
        printf("The alphabet is a consonant.\n");  
    }  
    else  
    {  
        printf("The character is not an alphabet.\n");
