You can use the GetNumberOfEventLogRecords() function.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Can the size be found using GetNumberOfEventLogRecords() function. This only gives the number of records only

You've already graded the answer and given me a bad grade.  Now you want more help?   If you want more help you should not grade the answer, then you could reject the answer if the additional help is not available or your could potentially give a a good grade if you get the answer you are looking for.

There is no even-related function that returns the size in bytes--basically no one really cares about that.  but you can use the GetFileSize() function to get the size of the even file (or any file) in bytes.
