Q1: Given a n-ary tree. Find the longest path (top to down) with consecutive integers in increasing order

Q2: https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/dynamic-programming-set-27-max-sum-rectangle-in-a-2d-matrix/
Q3: Given 2 trees, check whether Tree A contains Tree B. (Contains mean all nodes and orientation of their children should match)

Round 5:
Q1: Given a string like below, it has words embedded for zero to nine, You need to calculate the sum as per the string

onehhhtwominusthreehhkkseveneightjnine
should be equivalent to

Q2: Design a tiny URL service like bit.ly

Q3: one puzzle :
Given 1 Box with 2 latches
A and B stay in different states.
A has 2 keys of latch 1
B has 2 keys of latch 2
Now user A has to send a message in a box to User B.
while sending the message A has to make sure that no one on the way reads the message. If A sends the Key along, anyone can open it and check .
How would you make sure that this threat to read the message in between, is removed.

It was a good experience, although i got reject after a few days
