threads are related to OS and putting them for sleep is a process of OS, not of the programming language. Starting from C++, developers added the std library that contains the std::thread and from there you can do sleep for this thread compatible on any OS. So i can assume C not have any built-in function to make a sleep, you need to use a OS API function. You can have a similar effect using what IAmSupreme doing in his code, but this will waste 1 whole vcore from your CPU while the thread looping in the delay() function, so your CPU load will be high all the time for no reason

Yes there is, but doesn't not function as expected in soloLearn, check out the delay function in the code below https://sololearn.com/compiler-playground/cMMswSCLjU64/?ref=app

In Python this is done with time.sleep(seconds). Most other languages also call it sleep, and Python is written in C++, so I would search for something similarly named.
