Question 3Hard60-75 mins

The Coding Round of Infosys SP and DSE Hiring consists of 3 coding questions, each question can belong to a different difficulty level:

  • Question 1 – Easy level – Simple Question that can  be solved by basic applications of aptitude, algorithm and data structures.
  • Question 2 – Medium Level  – Usually a question based on Greedy Algorithm
    • A greedy algorithm is any algorithm that follows the problem-solving heuristic of making the locally optimal choice at each stage. Types of greedy problems are-:
      • Pure Greedy Algorithms
      • Orthogonal Greedy Algorithms
      • Relaxed Greedy Algorithms
  • Question 3 – Hard level – Usually a question based on Dynamic Programming
    • DP is an algorithmic technique for solving an optimization problem by breaking it down into simpler subproblems and utilizing the fact that the optimal solution to the overall problem depends upon the optimal solution to its subproblems.
    • Principles of Dynamic Programming-:
      • Breaking the problem down into subproblems and calculating their values. Next time, upon encountering the same subproblem, the value can be reused instead of recalculation
      • Avoid repeated work by remembering partial results, a common approach for performance enhancements.

Note-:  Programming languages allowed to submit solutions for the above questions are:-

  • C
  • C++
  • Java
  • Python
  • JavaScript

You can even use different programming languages to solve different coding problems, for eg – you can use C++ to solve ques 1, java to solve ques 2 and python to solve ques 3, or you can use either C,C++,java etc to solve all the 3 coding questions.
