Amazon Interview Experience

  • Difficulty Level : Medium
  • Last Updated : 07 Jul, 2021

I have applied to Amazon via LinkedIn. Finally, I got a mail stating that I can give my online test on Hacker-rank platform. 

Round 1: It is an online round on hacker-rank. Two coding questions were asked. We need to write time complexity and space complexity as well.

  1. Optimizing Alexa Suggestions 

    In this question 1 list is given with x and y coordinates and an integer X is given. We need to find X restaurants near the customer from location (0,0). 
     

Example 1 : 
location:[[1,2],[3,4],[1,-1]],
X=2 
O/P: [[1,-1],[1,2]]
  1. Device Application Pairs

    In this question device capacity, foregroundAppList and backgroundAppList is given. We need to find the foreground and background pair which optimally utilizes the device capacity. List has set of pair where first integer represents id and second integer represents amount of memory required.

Example 1 :
capacity = 7, 
foregroundAppList:[[1,2],[2,4],[3,6]], 
backgroundAppList:[[1,2]]   
O/P:[[2,1]]
Example 2 : 
capacity = 10, 
foregroundAppList:[[1,3],[2,5],[3,7],[4,10]], 
backgroundAppList:[[1,2],[2,3],[3,4],[4,5]]   
O/P:[[2,4],[3,2]]
