Coding problem3

This was held on Amazon Chime and the interview lasted for 1 hour. Firstly the interviewer asked to introduce about myself, later asked regarding the projects I have mentioned in my resume. Then started displaying the coding question. The first question is related to Strings. Given a string, find any of its permutation or anagram is a palindrome or not. The second question is Given an array of integers, find the length of the longest increasing subsequence. After solving both the questions in the optimized approach, the interviewer asked me for the 3rd question because we were still having time. The third question is Given a string with no separator, find the missing number in the string.The interviewer was very friendly.
