Techgig C test

Just gave a C skill test at techgig: http://www.techgig.com/skilltest/C. Was utterly disappointed to see that test questions were not in ANSI C. I wonder how someone can claim that these questions test your C skills when they use void main() and clrscr() . They need to change the title to testing skills specific to a particluar C compiler rather testing C skills.

Rather than helping people to understand C, it causes the person to get confused about C. It causes confusion and later frustration when a student turns into a programmer when he will see that C programming language and compiler extensions are two different things.
