difference between char alpha = 'k'; and char beta = "k";

char alpha = 'k';
char beta = "k";

printf("beta is %c and alpha is %c\n",beta,alpha);

why the output of beta and alpha is not same? which should be k?

In C, you must define char using single quotes ( ' ) rather than double quotes. Double quotes ( " ) are used for strings, not characters.

Let me know if that answers your question !
