By: IncludeHelp On 27 DEC 2016

#define MIN(x,y) ((x<y)?x:y)

Here, MIN is the Macro name x and y are the arguments. When program will compile, actual arguments which will be passed into the MIN Macro.

The code segment ((x<y)?x:y) will be replaced as ((a<b)?a:b (a and b are the actual arguments in the below written program) instead of Macro calling MIN(a,b).
