I find something really weird, if I used below expression in excel and c# I get different results.

(1) ^ (-12)

Excel gives 1 and c# gives -11.

Which one is right one?

They are really different. It's no wonder that different expressions give different results, is it? :-)

As different expressions, they are both "right", why not? In Excel, '^' means "power", in C#, it means "exclusive OR" (XOR). Please see:[^],[^],[^].
