# Amazon Interview Experience | Set 382 (On-Campus for Full Time)

The Selection process started with an Online Coding round.

20 MCQ and 2 Coding Questions:
MCQs were from OOPs, OS, DBMS, Networking etc.

Coding Questions:

1. Rotate the given Matrix by a factor k. Input is given as two integers n,m (row and column of the matrix). Followed by n lines with m space separated integers as all the elements of the matrix. Last line has an integer k.

```Input:
3 3
1 2 3
4 5 6
7 8 9
2

Output:
7 4 1
8 5 2
9 6 3
```
2. Given a string. Find all the palindromic partitions of the string. (Number of way the string can be partitioned so that all the partitions are palindrome)

```Input: str = "NITIN"

OUTPUT:
3
N I T I N
N ITI N
NITIN
```

Face2Face (Interview)

Round 1:

He asked coding questions straight away –

1. Add two numbers without using +,- operator, recursion or loop.
Try to think in terms of half adder.
2. Postfix to prefix without using recursion.
3. Given an array of numbers. What is the largest no possible by concatenating all the numbers together.

```Input:
5
21 30 1 9 98

Output:
99830211
```
4. Write the heapify code.

Round 2:

1. Level order traversal of a tree. Further he asked to optimise the code.
2. Given a matrix. ‘0’ means empty room, ‘1’ means door, ‘-1’ means a wall. For every cell as an empty room find the distance to the nearest door (One cannot go through a wall).

```Input:
5 5
0  0  1 -1  1
0 -1  0  0 -1
0  0 -1  0 -1
1 -1  1  0  0
0  0  0  0  0

Output:
2  1  0 -1  0
2 -1  1  2 -1
1  2 -1  2 -1
0 -1  0  1  2
1  2  1  2  3
```

The door would be replaced with 0 as the distance to the nearest door would be 0.
I started by a backtracking solution. But the guy didn’t know what it was. I gave many more solutions and concluded with an O(N) bfs solution.

Guys answer straight. Do not answer very complex algorithms, even though they are correct. Try to provide as brute-force solution as possible.
