C program to print natural numbers from N to 1 in reverse order using for loop

 #include <stdio.h>  
  
int main() {  
    int counter, N;  
    /* 
     * Take a positive number as input form user 
     */  
    printf("Enter a Positive Number\n");  
    scanf("%d", &N);  
  
    printf("Printing Numbers form %d to 1\n", N);  
    /* 
     * Initialize the value of counter to N and keep on 
     * decrementing it's value in every iteration till 
     * counter > 0 
     */ 
    for(counter = N; counter > 0; counter--) {  
        printf("%d \n", counter);  
    }
    
    return 0;  
} 

Output
Enter a Positive Number
