C program to Reverse a Sentence Using Recursion

In this example, you will learn to take a sentence from the user and reverse it using recursion.

Reverse a sentence using recursion

#include <stdio.h>
void reverseSentence();
int main(){
    printf("Enter a sentence: ");
    return 0;

void reverseSentence(){
    char c;
    scanf("%c", &c);
    if (c != 'n') {
        printf("%c", c);



Enter a sentence: margorp emosewa
awesome program

This program first prints Enter a sentence: . Then, the reverseSentence() function is called.

This function stores the first letter entered by the user in c. If the variable is any character other than n (newline), reverseSentence() is called again.

This process goes on until the user hits enter.

When the user hits enter, the reverseSentence() function starts printing characters from last.
