Que. | Consider the following expression grammar. The semantic rules for expression calculation are stated next to each grammar production. E → number E.val = number. val | E '+' E E(1).val = E(2).val + E(3).val | E '×' E E(1).val = E(2).val × E(3).val Assume the conflicts in Part (a) of this question are resolved and an LALR(1) parser is generated for parsing arithmetic expressions as per the given grammar. Consider an expression 3 × 2 + 1. What precedence and associativity properties does the generated parser realize? |

a. | Equal precedence and left associativity; expression is evaluated to 7 |

b. | Equal precedence and right associativity; expression is evaluated to 9 |

c. | Precedence of '×' is higher than that of '+', and both operators are left associative; expression is evaluated to 7 |

d. | Precedence of '+' is higher than that of '×', and both operators are left associative; expression is evaluated to 9 |

Answer:Equal precedence and right associativity; expression is evaluated to 9 |
