Section 1 - some aptitude question + predicting output of a given program + some conceptual question(mainly in OS) Section 2- programming section...

there were three questions 1)given two sorted linked list u have to return the linked list which is the merged list of the first two and also is sorted. 2)given two Binary trees, u have to find whether the second is a sub tre e of the first... 3)Given an array which contains integers(may contain thousands of elemen ts), u have to write a program to find the second largest element of the group.. .. the first two u can run (i.e) u can check the output....but the t hird u have to just write the code and u cant check the output....

Paper was of 2 hrs. with 10 MCQs and 5 programming questions. 1. Find repeating characters in the string and print them in lexicographical ord er. eg- aaabccffd ans- acf 2. Delete Kth node from a linked list. 3. Rotate the given matrix by 90 degree. 4.Clone a directed graph. 5.Write functions to find whether 2 timerange overlap or are within range. Amazon online test question paper 2011 We had an online test which had 22 questions including 2 coding and 20 MCQs. Here are a few questions I remember.: 1)write code to find sum of two numbers stored as linked list.(LSB at last node) and head of each list is given. 2)write code to print elements on the path from root to leaf node having the ma ximum sum. MCQ: 3)what is the complexity of retrieving min element from a max heap. 4)which is the fastet method to sort an almost sorted array: quick sort,bubble sort,merge sort,shell sort 5)zombie process 6)hash table 7)reverse linked list and a few questions on tress and dynamic prog and aptitude testing.

I wanted to crack this code for a long tim e now. and found one solution.. Please comments your code.. It would be helpful. . Thanks. - Algorist on June 17, 2011 Edit Idea is like this since both the arrays may not be of same length lets divide (k -1) smallest elements proportionally in both the arrays: let i point the array A by i=m/(m+n) * (k-1) [since we have to divide k-1 elements among two] j=(k-1) - i then try to insert A[i] between B[j-1] and B[j] if three are not in asc order tr y to insert B[j] between A[i-1] and A[i] If any one of the above satisfies we found kth smallest element else, check which one is smallest among A[i] and B[j] its logical that if A[i] is smal lest then we can A[0] to A[i] for the next iteration and k becomes k-i-1 also m becomes m-i-1 i.e now we have only m-i-1+n elements out o f which we have to find k-i-1th smallest thus the iteration goes on until we find our kth smallest element. Consider 2 arrays

A={5,7,9,20}; length of A: m=4 B={10,12,21,27,35,50}; length of B: n=6 let K be 4 i=4/10*3=1; A[1]=7; j=3-1=2; B[2]=21; B[1]=12 A[1]=7 B[2]=21 [not in asc order] A[0]=5 B[2]=21 A[1]=7 [not in asc order] so now, k=k-i-1 =4-1-1=2 m=m-i-1=4-1-1=2 n=6 A={9,20}; length of A: m=2 B={10,12,21,27,35,50}; length of B: n=6 i=2/8*1=0; A[0]=9; j=1-0=1; B[1]=12; (acutally A[-1] is just for understanding) B[0]=10 A[0]=9 B[1]=12 [not in asc order] A[-1]=-INF B[1]=12 A[0]=9 [not in asc order] now, k=k-i-1=2-0-1=1; m=m-i-1=2-0-1=1; n=6; A={20}; length of A: m=1 B={10,12,21,27,35,50}; length of B: n=6 i=1/7*0=0; A[0]=20; j=0-0=0; B[0]=10; (acutally A[-1] and B[-1] are just for understanding) B[-1]=-INF A[0]=20 B[0]=10 [not in asc order] A[-1]=-INF B[0]=10 A[0]=20 [in asc order] We got the Kth(4th) smallest element which is 10.
