Consider the following code:

int foo(int p)
int x = 98;
int y =5;
char ch;
x= p;
cout << p;
return x;
void main()
int a = 6;
int b = foo(a);
cout<< b;

In this case the function stack for foo will contain:

parameter p

And the stack pointer will be pointing to ch.

Now the question is:
in the function Foo, when the parameter p is accessed after ch, will the values of ch, x and y be popped out to get the value of p since stack is currently pointing to ch.
How is the value p retireved?
