Was able to answer the LRU cache with discussion, but when i was writing its code, he got confused, told me to give only algo/ steps. Not seems to be convinced.

HR told me that review is Good for everything but not that LRU code. I told her Interviewer got confused. So she arranged another round of interview.

if else, boolean , ternary etc are not giving in this new language.

Solution : switch case with bit-wise operator
c = a – b;
case 0 :
both are equal, break;

default:
case c << 32:
negative
default : positive



– Pre post order of tree traversal

other questions asked to others:
left/right face of tree
Max/min of stack

They select 2 people only.
After that i was told i got selected, they will ask for required document once approval done by CEO.

After waiting for 4 days i was told that experience needed is 4 years but you have only 3 years 8 months excluding 6 month intern.

When i argued that why you short-list me at the first place. They conducted one more round of interview.

5th round:
Basic android question
Find random number in a array(suppose 1-10), like every time to get a number (suppose 6) , next random will be anything other then 6.
Sol: when you get any number, swap that position with list index of array
ex : 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 => rand(1,10) => 6
next time
remove 6 and put last index value 10
1 2 3 4 5 10 7 8 9 => rand(1,9) => 9 so on till array empty

Round went perfect, then HR told me that this round review is average and 2nd round review is negative. So we cannot proceed further.
Had very bad experience.
