- It was on the array where for each element we need to find the difference between the number of elements lesser than the current element to it’s left and the number of elements greater than the current element to it’s right and return the maximum absolute difference after traversing the entire array. (50 marks)
- Given number n and k output the lexicographically smallest string of length n having the sum equal to k Eg: n=5 and k=42 Output S=aaamz. Here a=1, b=2, c=3, ….., z=26.
