We have a collection of stones, each stone has a positive integer weight.

Each turn, we choose the two heaviest stones and smash them together.  Suppose the stones have weights x and y with x <= y.  The result of this smash is:

 

If x == y, both stones are totally destroyed;

If x != y, the stone of weight x is totally destroyed, and the stone of weight ...

Problem approach
  • I used max priority queue to pop 2 stones and push back (Stone 1 weight-Stone 2 weight) and at the end returned front element of priority queue if left. Then the interviewer asked me to write its code and I wrote a neat and commented code and dry run it on the test cases given by the interviewer. He was satisfied with my approach.

Coding problem2

This round contained questions related to Object-Oriented Programming System and DP related coding problems.

1. Real time implementation of Object-oriented programming and types of polymorphism .
Problem approach
  • I explained the concept of Object-oriented programming through shapes class example and gave him the definition of polymorphism by again giving the same example. Then he asked me to write code for function overriding which I explained to him through inheritance example with virtual function explanation.

Given two strings str1 and str2 and below operations that can be performed on str1. Find minimum number of edits (operations) required to convert ‘str1’ into ‘str2’.

1. Insert

2. Remove

3. Replace

 

Problem approach
  • Firstly I gave him a recursion approach and then the interviewer asked me to reduce time complexity as the complexity of recursion was exponential so I gave him top-down DP approach(recursion with memoization) and wrote its proper code. At last, he was pretty impressed by my approach.
