I want to write a program to get an output like this: A B C D E F G F E D C B A
                                                                           A B C D E F    F E D C B A
                                                                           A B C D E          E D C B A
                                                                           A B C D                D C B A
                                                                           A B C                       C B A
                                                                           A B                             B A

  {                                                                                                                                 ABCDEF
  j='A';                                                                                                                           ABCDE
  while(j<=i)                                                                                                                   ABCD
                                                                                                                                     ABC{                                                                                                                                    AB

That code should do what you want

    int min = 'A';
    int max = 'G';
    int j = max;
    int i;

    while (j >= min) {
        i = min;
        while(i < max) {
            if (i <= j) {
                printf("%c", i);
            } else {
                printf(" ");
            }
            ++i;
        }

        while(i >= 'A') {
            if (i <= j) {
                printf("%c", i);
            } else {
                printf(" ");
            }
            --i;
        }
        printf("\n");
        --j;
    }
