Write a C program to read elements in an array and find the largest element in the array. 

Code:

#include<stdio.h>
 
int main() {
   int a[30], i, num, largest;
 
   printf("\nEnter no of elements :");
   scanf("%d", &num);
 
   //Read n elements in an array
   for (i = 0; i < num; i++)
      scanf("%d", &a[i]);
 
   //Consider first element as largest
   largest = a[0];
 
   for (i = 0; i < num; i++) {
      if (a[i] > largest) {
         largest = a[i];
      }
   }
 
   // Print out the Result
   printf("\nLargest Element : %d", largest);
 
   return (0);
}
