Program Explanation

Instruction(s) inside the for block{} are executed repeatedly till the second expression (ifor block are executed unless i becomes greater than n.

so value of i (1,2,3,...n)will be added to sum.

after adding all n natural numbers to sum, sum will be printed using printf statement.
