    Code:
    void main()
    {
    		 if(CONDITION)
    			   printf("Hello ");
    		 else
    			   printf("World");
    }
    
    Replace CONDITION with such a condition that both the printf statements get executed.
    You can't have a loop or other things in main()
    According to my knowledge it's not possible.
    But if it is possible, please let me know.
    Thanks

    printf("World"); would be nice option

    A single if-else with a condition cannot take both branches. It's not an interesting question, it's a silly question.

    Nothing tricky about it. It's silly. Your amazing solution only has one printf statement so it can't possibly
    That isn't a trick; that's being unable to read and comprehend.

    DaWei....there are still two printf statements that get get executed.....one that prints hello and other that prints world.......so i think there is no problem in reading neither in comprehension..... :)
