Online Coding Test: Coding challenge (2 scenarios) and Coding approach (elaborate why you code the way you do) – 105 minutes: One question based on Two-pointer approach with extra use of hashmap, on was simple iteration with finding min in every loop. ( Tip: Solve all coding questions from interview experiences of GFG and LeetCode.)
