# Must Do Coding Questions for Product Based Companies

As the placement season is back, GeeksforGeeks is here to help you crack the interview. We have selected some most commonly asked and MUST DO practice problems to crack Product-based Company Interviews.

You can also take part in our mock placement contests which will help you learn different topics and practice at the same time, simulating the feeling of a real placement test environment.

Note: Now you can track your progress and learn from video editorials of these questions Must Do Interview Preparation Course.

Topic:

### Arrays

An array is a collection of items stored at contiguous memory locations. The idea is to store multiple items of the same type together.

### Matrix

A matrix represents a collection of numbers arranged in an order of rows and columns. It is necessary to enclose the elements of a matrix in parentheses or brackets.

### String

Strings are defined as an array of characters. The difference between a character array and a string is the string is terminated with a special character â€˜\0â€™.

### Hashing

A linked list is a linear data structure, in which the elements are not stored at contiguous memory locations.

### Stack

A stack is a linear data structure in which elements can be inserted and deleted only from one side of the list, called the top. A stack follows the LIFO (Last In First Out) principle.

### Queue

A queue is a linear data structure in which elements can be inserted only from one side of the list called rear, and the elements can be deleted only from the other side called the front. The queue data structure follows the FIFO (First In First Out) principle.

### Heap

A Heap is a special Tree-based data structure in which the tree is a complete binary tree.

### Binary Tree

A tree whose elements have at most 2 children is called a binary tree. Since each element in a binary tree can have only 2 children, we typically name them the left and right child.

### Binary Search Tree

Binary Search Tree is a node-based binary tree data structure which has the following properties:

• The left subtree of a node contains only nodes with keys lesser than the nodeâ€™s key.
• The right subtree of a node contains only nodes with keys greater than the nodeâ€™s key.
• The left and right subtree each must also be a binary search tree.

### Graph

A Graph is a non-linear data structure consisting of nodes and edges. The nodes are sometimes also referred to as vertices and the edges are lines or arcs that connect any two nodes in the graph.

### Trie

Trie is an efficient information retrieval data structure. Using Trie, search complexities can be brought to optimal limit (key length).

### Greedy

Greedy is an algorithmic paradigm that builds up a solution piece by piece, always choosing the next piece that offers the most obvious and immediate benefit.

### DP

Dynamic Programming is mainly an optimization over plain recursion. Wherever we see a recursive solution that has repeated calls for same inputs, we can optimize it using Dynamic Programming.

### Recursion

The process in which a function calls itself directly or indirectly is called recursion and the corresponding function is called as recursive function.

### Backtracking

Backtracking is an algorithmic-technique for solving problems recursively by trying to build a solution incrementally, one piece at a time, removing those solutions that fail to satisfy the constraints of the problem at any point of time (by time, here, is referred to the time elapsed till reaching any level of the search tree).
