Coding problem1

It was subjective based coding round in which selection was mostly on basis of code readability and oops concepts applied.

1. Aapali Taxi is a taxi cab operator. They have 3 types of cars - Mini, Sedan and SUV, each with different tariffs. When customers approach them for booking rides, they would like you to create a program that can calculate an “Estimated Cost” for these passengers based on various parameters. ● Mini ● Base charges flat up to 3 KM - Rs. 50 ● For next 15 KM - Rs. 10 per KM ● Additional distance charged at Rs. 8 per KM ● If total ride distance is more than 75 KM, ride charged at Rs. 8 per KM flat with no base charges ● Sedan ● Base charges flat up to 5 KM - Rs. 80 ● For next 15 KM - Rs. 12 per KM ● Additional distance charged at Rs. 10 per KM ● If total ride distance is more than 100 KM, ride charged at Rs. 10 per KM flat with no base charges ● SUV ● Base charges flat up to 5 KM - Rs. 100 ● For next 15 KM - Rs. 15 per KM ● Every additional KM Rs. 12 per KM ● No flat charges, pay as per tariff above
