# Mallow Technologies Interview Experience | Set 1 (On-Campus)

Recently Mallow Technologies visited our campus for recruiting Web developer, IOS and Android app developers.

**No. of Rounds: 3**

**Round 1:**

It was online coding round at Hackerrank which consists of 3 programs and 3Hrs time.

**Program 1:**

Given an array with n distinct integers d[0], d[1], … d[n – 1] and a threshold t, how many triplets (i, j, k) exist such that d[i] < d[j] < d[k], and d[i] + d[j] + d[k] <= t.

Constraint:0 < n ? 30,000 0 <= d[i] < 10,000,000 0 < t < 300,000,000 (Note that the input is not always sorted.)Sample Input:t => Threshold, N=> No. of values in array then N number follows denotes values.. 8 5 1 2 3 4 6Sample Output:3Explanation:{1, 2, 3} => 1 + 2 + 3 <= 8 {1, 2, 4} => 1 + 2 + 4 <= 8 {1, 3, 4} => 1 + 3 + 4 <= 8

**Program 2:**

Louise and Richard decided to stay in on Friday night to play a game. They have a counter set to N. Louise gets the first turn and they alternate turns thereafter.

In the game, they perform one of the following two operations.

If N is not a power of 2, they reduce the counter by the largest power of 2 less than N.If N is a power of 2, they reduce the counter by half of N. The resultant value is the new N which is by the next player for her or his turn. The game ends when the counter reduces to 1, i.e. N = 1. The player who makes the last valid move (i.e. who gets to 1) wins. Given N, your task is to find the winner of the game.

**Note:** If the counter is set to 1 at the start, Richard wins, because its Louise’s turn and she

cannot make a move.

**Input Format:**

The first line contains an integer T, the number of test cases. T lines follow. Each line contains N, the initial number set in the counter.

Output Format:

For each test case, print the winner’s name in a new line. So if Louise wins the game, print “Louise”. Otherwise, print “Richard” (minus the quotation marks.)

Constraints:1 <= T <= 10 1 <= N <= 264 - 1Sample Input:1 6Sample OutputRichard

**Explanation**

6 is not a power of 2, so Louise subtracts the largest power of 2 less than 6, i.e. 4, and the counter goes down to 2. 2 is a power of 2, so Richard reduces the counter by half of 2, i.e. 1, and the counter goes down to 1. Since N = 1, Louise has no more moves, so Richard wins the game

**Program 3:**

You are given a 14 digit date time value as input (D), whose format is YYYYMMDDHHMISS.

YYYY – represents year (Examples: 1947, 2000, 2015)

MM – represents month (Examples: 12, 01, 03)

DD – represents day (Examples: 31, 01, 15)

HH – represents hour (Examples: 00, 01, 12, 23)

MI – represents minute (Examples: 59, 50, 00, 05)

SS – represents second (Examples: 59, 50, 00 06)

You will also be given another integer, called the offset value (O), in seconds. You are required

to print a 14 digit output date in the format YYYYMMDDHHMISS which is adjusted for the offset from the input date.

**Proper conditions to check for leap year:**

1. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leap_year#Algorithm

2. http://www.wwu.edu/skywise/leapyear.html

Special condition for the year 1752:

1. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1752

Please note that, the conditions for a leap year is different for Julian (Used until September 2, 1752) and Gregorian calendars (Used from September 14, 1752).

Constraints:10010101000000 < D < 39991231235959 -94638758399 < O < 94638758399Sample Input:19470815000008 17Sample Output:19470815000025

**Explanation:**

The input 19470815000008 represents August 15, 1947 00:00:08. If you adjust the input date with 17 seconds, you will get the date August 15, 1947 00:0025. Hence the output is 19470815000025.

Round 2:

It was also conducted online at hackerrank 2 Hrs time which consists of following:

1. Program with errors (Both logic & syntax) – We need to debug it and pass all test cases.

2. There was two database questions for which we need to write query and pass the test cases.

Technical and HR:

Questions related to the problems given in Round 1 and Round 2 how we solved. Someconcept in data structures and basic CS questions. Thanks GeeksforGeeks for providing this wonderful resources.
