struct class student[100];

struct marks
int subject1; 
int subject2; 
int subject3; 
static struct marks student[3] = { {45, 68, 81}, {75, 53, 69}, {57,36,71} };

This declares the student as an array of three elements students[0], student[1], and student[2] and initializes their members as follows:
