Coding problem2

It was an online video interview round on HackerEarth with simultaneous code option. It was mostly justifying your resume in the first 15 minutes. After that OOPS was majorly asked. Basics of programming including questions on STL were asked. A class which required inheritance was asked by the interviewer to write. I was helped by the interviewer if i got stuck somewhere, Some questions on implementation of hashmaps and priority queues were also asked. A puzzle was asked which luckily struct to me at that moment.

1. Oops Concept

Implement a class which inherits features from another class. Basically i had to provide a list of employees of a particular department. along with their salary details when i was given a department of any organisation.

Problem approach

I used inheritance and also used hashmaps to maintain a map of an integer for every department.

2. Puzzle

10 boxes each with 10 stones are present. each box has stones of different weight but weight in each box is uniform. Only one box has one stone of non-uniform weight. Find optimized way to find in which box is this wrong stone present.

Problem approach

Take 1 stone from box1, 2 from box 2 and so on.
