Grofers Interview Experience

Round 0: Coding Assignment

A document was shared containing 2 questions:

  1. You would have used the feature of Google maps in which you put in location A and location B and Maps comes up with 2-3 routes and suggests the most optimal one. How would you implement it. Assume you are given the road network of the whole world and there is no traffic. Assume that every 10mx10m location is tagged whether road exists there or not and location A and B are a particular 10mx10m location. Also, assume that the effort to move between adjacent 10×10 squares is a constant 1. And, in the output you just need to tell the minimum distance that exists between location A & B.Input:

    (i) the world map with data of whether a road exists at a particular 10x10m location,

    (ii) locations A & B


    Integer that represents minimum distance between A & B.

  2. For this years Oscar Awards, invitations have been extended to ‘n’ guests. Now, these guests can choose to either come with an existing invited guest or come solo.
