Kindly explain why explaining is off-topic in your opinion.

Correct. I am exact, which is the minimum anyone can be.

It is.  Kindly point to somebody who says it before you?  For example, I
see from you Tue 16.45:

  You've already been told that 6.5.7 says "The integer promotions are
  performed on each of the operands. " and says nothing about

which is not it. Either you still don't get what IT is, or ... I don't
know. To give you the clue, here is my response (my caps) at 20.11:

  I see nothing that says that conversions should NOT be applied to
  their operators.

Got it yet? Here is where you did give the clue. I'll help again with

Get it? You finally exposed your REASONING, for the very first and only

That single instance of displayed reasoning was enough for me.

You could have saved yourself you had merely gone to that ordinary
length beforehand, but no.

I am not clever! Just ordinary!
