Find the second largest element in a Binary Search Tree

15 réponses

The above answer is also wrong; Node findSceondLargest(Node root) { // If tree is null or is single node only, return null (no second largest) if (root==null || (root.left==null && root.right==null)) return null; Node parent = null, child = root; // find the right most child while (child.right!=null) { parent = child; child = child.right; } // if the right most child has no left child, then it's parent is second largest if (child.left==null) return parent; // otherwise, return left child's rightmost child as second largest child = child.left; while (child.right!=null) child = child.right; return child; } Moins

find the right most element. If this is a right node with no children, return its parent. if this is not, return the largest element of its left child. Moins

One addition is the situation where the tree has no right branch (root is largest). In this special case, it does not have a parent. So it's better to keep track of parent and current pointers, if different, the original method by the candidate works well, if the same (which means the root situation), find the largest of its left branch.

Given two lists of sorted integers, develop an algorithm to sort these numbers into a single list efficiently.

This might be solved by using a similar logic we used for the merge procedure in merge sort Moins

The key in these questions is to cover the fundamentals, and be ready for the back-and-forth with the interviewer. Might be worth doing a mock interview with one of the Quora or ex-Quora Data Scientist Intern experts on Prepfully? They give real-world practice and guidance, which is pretty helpful. Moins

I think what SAS does to this issue could be referred as one solution

Questions from algebra, algorithms and data science. Writing Python code to solve some simple tasks like creating a counter of distinct elements from a list, an algorithm to compute a^b without using the ** operator in Python.

2 réponses

I was able to answer most of the algebra and algorithms questions. Couldn't answer some of the Data Science ones. I was able to write a code for computing a^b assuming b was an integer, but couldn't do it for the general case - when b could be any real number. Moins

I'm assuming that you can't use any mathematical library.You need to write an if elif else condition, if b could be any real number. If b is a negative number then output should be inverse of a^b . Similarly if b is a fraction ,different condition should be mentioned. Moins
