Goldman Sachs Interview | Set 1

  • Difficulty Level : Medium
  • Last Updated : 27 May, 2019
  • Written test:
    It comprised three papers that were held back to back and took approximately three hours. The first two papers were subjective.
    • First one tested us on the concepts of probability. I don’t quite remember the questions but one of them asked us to find the Eigenvalues for a given matrix
    • Second one tested our coding skills. Few of the questions I can recollect:
    • Given a set of numbers, find the pairs whose sum is divisible by k.
    • Given a number find the next largest palindrome number (e.g. if the number is 100 then the next largest palindrome is 101).
    • The third paper tested our knowledge of computer science subjects. It was mainly focused on Networks and required us to know the basics of TCP/IP, time to live (TTL) etc.
  • Interview Round:
    1. Tell me about yourself. (This was totally unexpected!)
    2. Find the probability that three points are chosen on a circle lies on the same semi-circle.
    3. In a matrix a saddle point is defined as the point such that, it has the maximum value in a corresponding row and the minimum value in the corresponding column. Given an NXN matrix find the maximum possible saddle points.
    4. Given that you toss a fair coin, what is the expected number of tosses required before you get n consecutive heads?
