Coding problem2

Firstly they asked me for some Linux command line functions. Then they went on SQL. Started from the basic questions by writing a code for creating a table for some values then moved ahead by asking some theoretical and asked me to write some SQL commands too. Then they asked me to write a function which returns whether 2 strings are anagrams or not. Then they asked me to explain everything which I know about oops. After that they asked me 2 simple puzzles.

1. Find the fastest 3 horses

There are 25 horses among which you need to find out the fastest 3 horses. You can conduct race among at most 5 to find out their relative speed. At no point you can find out the actual speed of the horse in a race. Find out how many races are required to get the top 3 horses.

Problem approach

Make group of 5 horses and run 5 races. Suppose five groups are a,b,c,d,e and next alphabet is its individual rank in tis group(of 5 horses).for eg. d3 means horse in group d and has rank 3rd in his group. [ 5 RACES DONE ]
a1 b1 c1 d1 e1
a2 b2 c2 d2 e2
a3 b3 c3 d3 e3
a4 b4 c4 d4 e4
a5 b5 c5 d5 e5

Now make a race of (a1,b1,c1,d1,e1).[RACE 6 DONE] suppose result is a1>b1&g...
