This was face to face interview round. The interviewer was very friendly. He started by asking tell me

I covered major data structure topics like Arrays, Stacks, Queues, Linked List, Trees, Graphs, backtracking, Dynamic Programming. After reading each topic, I tried to practice maximum questions on the concerned topic from Coding Ninjas, geeksforgeeks, Hackerrank and when stuck on a question, I preferred watching solution videos provided by Coding Ninjas.
Preparation Tip

Tip 1 : It is important to practice coding consistently because it is what enables you to solve interview-questions in the stipulated time. But before this, it is even important to have a clear understanding of all the data-structures, so that they can be easily implemented as and when required to solve a problem. 
Tip 2 : They do not judge you upon the number of internships you have done or the number of projects you have made. A single,good-quality project is sufficient, provided you have in-depth knowledge about it. 
Tip 3 : Practise topic-wise questions, participate in lots of coding contests, watch lots of Youtube solutions even after you could solve a question, because you may find a different approach that is efficient than yours,
