And then I was asked to write and explain the working of stacks and queues.
Next question was, to search a given element efficiently in a sorted 2-D array.

Round 4: Technical interview – 2 ( 45 minutes – 1 hour)
This was the last round in the selection process and it took much time than the previous one. Only one panelist was interviewing all the ten students one by one.
In this round the projects, area of interests were discussed in detail. Questions came as a follow up to the answers given to the previous one. More questions from database management like schema, ERP diagram, SQL queries, NOSQL were asked. Pattern printing question was asked. Having ML/AI projects in hand would be an added advantage.
