At a point during program execution where both P and Q denote valid
memory locations, can P and Q refer to the same memory location?
During the execution time of the program, does the set of memory
locations denoted by P contain any of the memory locations denoted by Q?
With P="a[i]" and Q="a[i-1]", the answer to problem 1 is "no", while the
answer to problem 2 is "yes".
The answer to which one you want depends on the problem you're trying to
