This round consisted of 4 sections, namely,
2. Technical MCQs
1. English: This section consisted of 10 questions in all(Time limit was 15min). 5 questions were based on a given passage which were of moderate level. Remaining questions were on vocabulary, error correction and phrases which were easy to moderate.
2. Technical MCQs: This section consisted of 20 technical questions(Time limit was 30min). Questions were mainly on simple SQL commands, Tracing the output of recursive or iterative code snippet, basics of networking(components of IP address), Output of a given algorithm, output of a given code snippet. This round was of moderate level.
3. Coding: In this section we were supposed to solve two coding questions in 60min. First question was simple which was based on basic operations on a 2D matrix. The second question was of moderate level. It was one of the well known problems, 'The longest increasing substring'.
4. Algorithm: This section had two questions(Time limit was 15min). We were required to design a suitable algorithm and type that for the given problem statement. The questions were
a. Add two polynomials as linked lists(Problem URL: shorturl.at/dPVX5)
b. Conversion of an infix expression to postfix(Problem URL: shorturl.at/ltDG6)
we were required to write algorithms for the above problems
This online screening test was conducted on 29th of October from 4PM to 6PM. It was conducted on HirePro platform and it was audio and video proctored. Switching tabs were not allowed.
Step 1: Brute did not work for me.
Step 2: DP solution was expected.
This round was purely technical. It was scheduled for me from 9AM. Most questions focused on OOP in C++/java.
First I was asked to explain Dynamic binding in OOP with a suitable code snippet. Then a code was shown by the interviewer and i was asked to verify if it was an example of static or dynamic binding.
Then, I was asked about synchronization in java and to explain various methods to bring in synchronization in a multi-threaded program in java.
Then i was asked about rand() function in C++. I was asked to write a suitable code to demonstrate rand() function and explain srand() too.
I was then asked to solve the problem: Find the second largest element in an unsorted array without sorting
Then i was asked to explain about a project which i had done.
Next I was asked few questions on basics of HTML and CSS.
I said that i would find the largest element using brute force, delete it and again find the largest element to find the second largest element.
This round lasted for about 15min from 11AM. The interviewer was very friendly and encouraging.
