Round 3:

Asked to explain any one of the projects mentioned in my resume in detail.


2. A person participates in a race, where he has to step on rocks having numbers on them. If he steps on a rock, the number on rock will be added to his score. If he is level L and on ‘n’th rock then he can jump only to ‘n+L’th rock. Given that he can choose his start and end points, find the maximum score he can make for a given level ‘L’.

This is similar to finding maximum sub-array sum.

Discussed about all the projects in breif.



3. LRU cache

5. OSI model vs TCP/IP model

6. Discussed about deadlocks

Different approaches were asked for every problem and optimized solution is expected. We were asked to write the code in our preferred language. Interviewers were helpful, we need to think out loud and clarify any doubts about the questions.

Verdict: Selected!
