Moonfrog Labs Interview Experience | Set 3

Q1. Given a sequence of integers, find the longest increasing subsequence. Example:
arr = [1, 2, 5, 3, 7]
ans : [1, 2, 5, 7] or [1, 2, 3, 7]

arr = [4, 3, 1, 2]
ans: [1, 2].

Q2. Given a vectors of numbers of fixed length, for example:

v1 = [4, 3, 1, 2] v2 = [2, 4, 3, 5]

The relationship nested between two vectors is defined as follows:

if the corresponding entries of a vector are all smaller than the other vector, after rearranging entries of vector if needed, then first vector
is said to be nested in the other. Example

Not nested
v1 – [4, 3, 1, 2] v2 – [2, 4, 3, 5]
v2 – [2, 4, 3, 5] v1 – [4, 3, 1, 2]

After re-arranging:

Nested
v1 – [4, 3, 1, 2]
v2 – [5, 4, 2, 3]

Hence v1 is nested in v2.

Given a pair of such vectors , write a function as follows:

function isNested(Vec a, Vec b);

Result:
-1 if a is nested in b
1 if b is nested in a
0 if nesting is not possible.

Q3. Given a list of numbers in random order. Is it possible to pair all elements in the list in such a way that no two pairs share an element
and the sum of elements in a pair is divisible by 101. Example:

v1 [ 1, 100, 1]
Ans: No

v2 [1, 100, 100, 1] [2, 98, 101, 1]
Ans: Yes

v3 [1, 200, 100, 100, 2, 1]
Ans: yes
