ROUND 1:
This was an online round.There were three sections :
1) Aptitude and logic
2) Data structures(mainly binary tree),OS,DBMS,OOPS.
3) Data analysis.

ROUND 2:
Online coding round:
2 codes:

code 1: given an array and a player.The player selects elements from array.If the player selects an item with value i the he/she cannot select i+1 or i-1.Find the maximum sum of value the player can select.

I/P : 4 1 2 8
O/P : 14

I/P : 9 7 4 5 6 1 2 3 8
O/P: 25

code 2: Find the number of palindromes that can be formed by jumbling the words of a given string.

I/P : abab
O/P : 2

I/P : none
O/P : 0

TECHNICAL ROUND 1:
2) some questions on sorting algorithms? i.e, which sort is better and running times for each?
3) given a list of strings place all anagrams together.
4) Given two numbers represented by two lists, write a function that returns sum list. The sum list is list representation of addition of two input numbers.
5) What is virtual memory? Demand paging?and some basic questions on os.
6) Given a big file sort it? Big in the sense doesn’t fit into memory.
7) what is register storage class?

TECHNICAL ROUND 2:

1) Design the snake and ladder game and finally if three players play it must give me the winner? i was asked to write the code for it.(some optimisations then).

2) Gave me array : 9 16 7 8 25 95 23 11 and i was asked which sorting algo would be best to sort it and asked me number of iterations it will take?

3) Asked me to explain merge sort and was asked to write complete working code for it.

HR INTERVIEW:
