Coding problem2

This round was conducted on Zoom platform. I was shared the invitation link one day prior to the interview and also was told the name of my interviewer. I looked at the profile of the interviewer at linked.in and got a better understanding of what kind of person he was and prepared accordingly. The round was scheduled at 3 :00 pm on 20th August and I was eagerly waiting for the clock hands to reach 3 o'clock since morning and finally I went in front of him after wearing a white shirt and a black coat over it along with a tie over it.
