  2. Add all greater values to every node in a given BST. First I gave him brute force approach O(n^2), then a better approach O(nlogn), then reverse order traversal approach O(n). 

Round 3 (F2F Technical Interview): Again a brief introduction about myself. Then 2 coding questions were asked (1 hr).

  1. Rotten orangesMinimum time required to rot all oranges.

  1. Even if you are not able to give the correct solution, try to build your solution considering all the cases given by the interviewer. I did the same in one question and it really helped.
  2. Amazon focuses only on DS Algo and its leadership principles.
  3. They ask questions mostly on Tree, Graph, DP, Stack (in the decreasing order of frequency)
