AnswerA graph has N vertices numbered from 1 to N. We have two lists. One list M consisted of edges between vertices. The other list K consists of restricted paths. We have to add edges one by one from M and check whether the addition of the particular edge leads to a path between the restricted edges given in K. If it creates a path, we have to discard the edge.

- neer.1304 July 03, 2019 in United States

Example: N = 4; K = {(1, 4)}; M = {(1, 2), (2, 3), (3, 4)}. Here, addition of edge (3, 4) will create a path between 1 and 4. Hence we discard edge (3, 4)| Report Duplicate | Flag | PURGE

AnswersGiven (x, y) coordinates, create a function such that each coordinate is uniquely mapped to an integer. Also make sure that given an integer, you should be able to find (x, y) coordinates. So F(x, y) = z and also that inverse F(z) = (x, y).

AnswerWe have to paint n boards of length {A1, A2…An}. There are k painters available and each takes 1 unit time to paint 1 unit of board. The problem is to find the minimum time to get

- neer.1304 July 03, 2019 in United States

this job done under the constraints that any painter will only paint continuous sections of boards, say board {2, 3, 4} or only board {1} or nothing but not board {2, 4, 5}.

Input : k = 2, A = {10, 10, 10, 10}

Output : 20.

Here we can divide the boards into 2

equal sized partitions, so each painter

gets 20 units of board and the total

time taken is 20.

Input : k = 2, A = {10, 20, 30, 40}

Output : 60.

Here we can divide first 3 boards for

one painter and the last board for

second painter.| Report Duplicate | Flag | PURGE

AnswersYou are required to collect N numbers from a bag. Initially, the bag is empty. Whenever you put a number X in the bag, then the owner of the bag asks the question.

- Sameer June 21, 2019 in United States

The questions are as follows:

. What is the greatest integer that is smaller than X and present inside the bag?

. What is the smallest number that is greater than X and present inside the bag?

If you answer both the questions correctly, then you can put X inside the bag. Your task is to answers the questions that are asked by the owner of the bag. If no such numbers exist in the bag print -1.

Example:

AnswersGiven a nested list of integers, return the sum of all integers in the list weighted by their depth.

- koustav.adorable June 09, 2019 in United States

Each element is either an integer, or a list -- whose elements may also be integers or other lists.

Different from the question where weight is increasing from root to leaf, now the weight is defined from bottom up. i.e., the leaf level integers have weight 1, and the root level integers have the largest weight.

Example 1:

Input: [[1,1],2,[1,1]]

Output: 8

Explanation: Four 1's at depth 1, one 2 at depth 2.

Example 2:

Input: [1,[4,[6]]]

Output: 17

Explanation: One 1 at depth 3, one 4 at depth 2, and one 6 at depth 1; 13 + 42 + 6*1 = 17.| Report Duplicate | Flag | PURGE
