printf("Enter size of array:");
printf("Enter %d Elements:",n);
calloc() is predefined function allocates memory of specified bytes.
Number of bytes is specified as (4,n), it means n 4 bytes. Since we are using integers, specified as 4bytes.
*a denotes first four bytes, *(a+1) denotes second four bytes, *(a+2) denotes third four bytes and so on.,
i is initialized to 0 and incremented by 1 at each iteration of both the for loops.
First for loop reads n input numbers from user and stores them in array a from location 0 to n-1
Initially assign the element located at 0 to max using min =*a.
using second for loop visit each location serially from 1 to n-1. if the element located in any position is lesser than min, then assign the element as max by using min = *(a+i)
finally min holds the minimum value in the list.
