Question 3

In this article, we will discuss about Coding Question with their solution in C++ java and Python. This is s simple string manipulation questions in which you have to find the longest subsequence length in string s.

 

Question 3

Question 3

Rohan and his team are participating in the Treasure Hunt event of college in which in each step they have to solve one problem to get a clue of Treasure location . Rohan’s team has performed very well and reached the final step where they have to provide a code of a problem to get a final clue about treasure .

Given a string s, they need to find the longest palindromic subsequence’s length in s.
A subsequence is a sequence that can be derived from another sequence by deleting some or no elements without changing the order of the remaining elements.

The string contains only lowercase letters.

Write a program to help Rohan’s team that takes in input as String x and returns the length of the longest palindromic subsequence of x.

Input Specification:
input1: string input

Output Specification:
Return the length of the longest palindromic subsequence

Example 1:
Input: s = “bbbab”
Output: 4
Explanation: One possible longest palindromic subsequence is “bbbb”.

Example 2:
Input: s = “cbbd”
Output: 2
Explanation: One possible longest palindromic subsequence is “bb”.
