4 outputs when called 4 times =a, a, b, c. Create a function
There are coins stored in tree nodes. Each node is supposed to have exactly 1 coin. Total no of coins in a tree is = no of nodes. But the coins are not equally distributed and have to moved to proper nodes (which have >1 or <1 coins). Find the number of moves required.

Round 2
1 website could link to many other websites. Design a crawler service that could return all websites that are recursively reachable from this website. Design a distributed system where all results cannot be stored in 1 node. [Ans= Decouple storage and compute]
