I need to write a simple C program of student management system using an array of structures or parallel arrays.
I have started the question but i have become lost and I'm having some problem in implementing some functions!
Given the following information:

char sId[10]; // student ID
char fName[30]; // student's first name
char lName[30]; // student's last name
int m, p, c; // m = maths, p = physics, c = chemistry
// m, p, and c belong to the range [0..10]
double avg; //average mark with 1 digit after decimal point


The basic output of the program should be as follows:

1. Input student list
2. Output student list
3. Add a new student
4. Search a student by Id or last name
5. Delete a student with a given student Id
6. Update a student with a given student Id
7. Sort on last name or average mark
8. Exit

With regards to option 4 & 7 :
If the user presses the number 4, the program displays the following submenu
1. Search by Id
2. Search by last name
then the program waits for the user to enter a number 1 or 2 to perform the corresponding
task.
• If the user presses the number 7, the program displays the following submenu
1. Sort on last name
2. Sort on average mark
then the program waits for the user to enter a number 1 or 2 to perform the corresponding
task.

Below is the actual code that have been written but as you can see, I have been able to implement only 2 functions, can some one please help me?

#include <stdlib.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <string.h>
struct Student
{
   char   sId[10];   // student ID
   char   fName[30]; // student's first name
   char   lName[30]; // student's last name
   int    m, p, c;   // m = maths, p = physics, c = chemistry
   // m, p, and c belong to the range [0..10]
   double avg; //average mark with 1 digit after decimal point
};

Student input1Student();
void output1Student(const Student &x);
void inputStudentList(Student list[], int &n);
void outputStudentList(const Student list[], const int &n);
//---------------------------------------------------------
int main(void)
{
   int op = 0, op2 = 0;
   int n = 0;
   Student list[10];
   while(op != 8)
   {
      printf("1. Input student list\n");
      printf("2. Output student list\n");
      printf("3. Add a new student\n");
      printf("4. Search a student by Id or last name\n");
      printf("5. Delete a student with a given student Id\n");
      printf("6. Update a student with a given student Id\n");
      printf("7. Sort on last name or average mark\n");
      printf("8. Exit\n");
      printf("Enter your option (1-8): ");
      scanf("%d", &op);
      switch(op)

THE CODE IS WORKING SO YOU CAN COMPILE & RUN AND ANY HELP WILL BE DEEPLY APPRECIATED.....THANKS!...

About your question. First, the title isn't the best since it doesn't really says what the problem is about. Second, it looks like homework and nobody will do that for you. Also, people are willing to help you (even if it is homework) but you must have a specific problem when trying something and you get stuck. Simply asking for complete solutions won't get you anything unless you are willing to pay or hire people, but then again this ain't the right place for that either. So, try yourself and when you run into trouble you can ask about it here and you just might get the help you need.

Good advice, Let them (at-least)try ;)
Then I did not get what you want now?You want us to complete the remaining?

Maybe two people in the same class? :)

noticed this as well... with the same exact code

It happens all the time!
I can imagine the school where they get assignments like that.
And all those people will try to works with us when they graduate!
