Coding

Question 1

Praveen is trying to create a sequence. He wants to create such a sequence which can irritate people. That’s why he has named this sequence as Dirty Sequence

As per the rule, a sequence A[ ] of integers is called a dirty sequence when:

  • Length of sequence N >= 3.
  • For each index i (excluding first and the last index). the value of each element should be such that 2* A[i] > A[i-1] + A[i+1]
  • Each element of the sequence will be in range of [1 to K], where K is the input given by the user.

Given a positive integer K. Find the maximum length of the dirty sequence that can be made so that each element of the sequence will be integers in the range [1 to K].

The largest dirty sequence may not be unique, as long the length is largest.

Let us try to understand it with an example.

Input from the user is K=3
So now the elements inside this dirty sequence have to be either 1 or 2 or 3. And all the elements should follow the above mentioned constraint.

One of the possible sequences would be {1,3,3,2}

Exclude A[n] and A[4]
A[2] =9, which is greater than (3+1)/2 = 2
A[3) = 3, which is greater than (3+2)/2 = 2.5

We cannot achieve any dirty sequence with length > 4.

Hence the condition satisfies this sequence. So the maximum length that can be achieved with K = 3, is 4.

So the answer is 4.

Example 1:

  • Input:
    5 -> input integer, K
  • Output:
    6 -> Output
  • Explanation:
    One of the possible dirty sequences we have is [2, 4, 5, 5, 4, 1]
    Exclude A[1] and A[6]
    A[2] = 4, which is greater than (2+5)/2 = 3.5
    A[3] = 5, which is greater than (5+4)/2 = 4.5
    A[4] = 5, which is greater than (5+4)/2 = 4.5
    A[5] = 4, which is greater than (5+1)/2 = 3

We cannot achieve any dirty sequence with length > 6.
Hence the condition satisfies this sequence. So the maximum length that can be achieved with K = 5, is 6.

So the answer is 6.

Example 2:

  • Input:
    3 -> Input integer, K
  • Output:
    4 -> Output
  • Explanation:
    One of the possible sequences would be {1,3,3,2}

Exclude A[1] and A[4]
A[2] = 3, which is greater than (3+1)/2 = 2
A[3] = 3, which is greater than (3+2)/2 = 2.5

We cannot achieve any dirty sequence with length > 4.
Hence the condition satisfies this sequence. So the maximum length that can be achieved with K = 3, is 4.

So the answer is 4.

 

Question 2

King Jeremy’s family has ruled a kingdom for N consecutive years numbered from 1 to N.

The year i is described by a prosperity value A[i]. This is a positive integer when there was a prosperity in year hand a negative integer when it was a difficult year for the kingdom.

A historical period is described with two integers, S and F as [S,F], i.e. [Start, Finish], where S, F are from 1, to N, S<=F

The target is to pick 2 historical periods, with the following 6 conditions:

  1. The two periods shouldn’t have common years. Foro example (1,5) has no common year with [6,7).
  2. First period should start earlier than the second one, 1.e. (1,5) should be the first period and then the [6,7] should start.
  3. There should be a difference of more than K integers between the Finish of first period and start of 2nd period.
  4. Sum of prosperity values for the years in the periods chosen should be as large as possible.

Given N, A[] and K, give this maximum prosperity value as output.

For e.g.
N = 5, number of years
K = 3, difference between 2 periods.
A = {-1, 1, 2, 3, -1} prosperity value for each year.

There is only 1 way to choose the two periods, which is [1,1] and [5,5) as the difference has to be greater than 3 (value of K).

The prosperity values for these are
[1,1]=-1
[5,5) 2-1
Sum of this value is -2. Hence, the answer is -2.

Example 1:

  • Input:
    8 -> Input Integer, N
    3 -> Input Integer, K
    {5, 5, -1, -2, 3, -1, 2, -2} -> Input sequence, A[ ].
  • Output:
    12 -> Output
  • Explanation:
    In the above case: N equals to 8, K equals to 3, Al equals to {5, 5,-1,-2,3,-1, 2, -2}. It is optimal to choose [1, 2] and [7, 7) periods. That is the only optimal choice that you can make.
    So the values will be
    [1, 2] = 5 5
    [7, 7] = 2
    The sum of it will be 5 + 5 + 2 = 12

Example 2:

  • Input:
    6 -> Input Integer, N
    0 -> input Integer, K
    {5, -1, 5, 0, -1, 9} -> Input sequence A[ ].
  • Output:
    18 -> Output

Explanation:
In the above case: N equals to 6, K equals to 0. All equals to {5,-1,5, 0, 1,9}. It is optimal to choose [1, 3] and [6, 6] periods. But that is not the only optimal choice that you can make So the values will be
[1, 3]  = 5 – 1 5
[6, 6] = 9

The sum of it will be 5 -1+5+9 = 18

 

Run
n=int(input())
k=int(input())
A=list(map(int,input().split()))


final=[]
for i in range(1,n+1):
    for j in range(1,n+1):

First period was homeroom, and like a huge dork was excited by this My middle school didn’t have bells or different teachers for different classes There were forty girls per grade, divided into two classrooms, and in that classroom, you were taught math, social studies, science religion, and English by the same teacher all year long, and if you were lucky, you got the one who wasn’t the nun (I was never lucky). The idea of a school where a bell rang every forty-one minutes, prompting you on to the next classroom, with a new teacher and a new concentration of students, made me feel like I was a guest star on ‘Saved by the bell or something’.

But the most exciting part of that first morning was English. Honors English, another distinction my old school never made, in which had secured a spot thanks to that brilliant 150-word description of my cat’s tragic demise I couldn’t wait to take notes in the bright green pen I’d bought at the school store Mt St Theresa’s made us write in pencil like babies, but Bradley didn’t care what you wrote in Didn’t care you took notes at all as long as you kept your grades up Bradley’s school colours were green and white, and I bought a pen the same shade as the basketball jerseys to display my new allegiance.

Honors English was a small class, only twelve students, and instead of desks, we got to sit at three long tables, pushed together to form the shape of a bracket. The teacher, Mr. Larson, was someone Mom would dismiss as hefty but those twenty extra pounds had resulted in a kind, full face squinty eyes, a slight arch to his upper lip that made him look like he was remembering some hilarious crack one of his buddies had made to him the night before over lukewarm Bud Lights. He wore faded pastel button-downs and had the kind of floppy, light brown hair that assured us it wasn’t too long ago that he was a prep school kid just like us and he, like, totally got it.

In the time it takes you to read the sentence, the global building industry will have poured more than 19,000 bathtubs of concrete. By the time you are halfway through this article the volume would fill the Albert Hall and spill out into Hyde Park In a day it would be almost the sure of China’s Three Gorges Dam. In a single year, there is enough to patio over every hill, dale, nook and cranny in England

 

After water, concrete is the most widely used substance on Earth If the cement industry were a country it would be the third largest carbon dioxide emiter in the world with up to 2.8 bn tonnes, surpassed only by China and the US.

 

The material is the foundation of modern development, putting roofs over the heads of billions, fortifying our defences against natural disasters and providing a structure for heathcare, education, transport, energy and industry.

 

Concrete is how we try to tame nature. Our slabs protect us from the elements. They keep the rain from our heads the cold from our bones and the mud from our feet. But they aho entomb vast tracts of fertile soil, constipate rivers, choke habitats and-acting as a rock hard second skin- desensitise us from what is happening outside our urban fortresses.

 

Our blue and green world is becoming greyer by the second. By one calcuation we may have already passed the point where concrete outweighs the combined carbon mass of every tree bush and shrub on the planet. Our built environment is in these terms, outgrowing the naturl one. Unike the natural world, however, does not actually grow. Instead its chef quality is to harden and then degrade, extremely slowly

All

the plastic produced over the past 60 years amounts to 8 bn tonnes. The cement industry pumps out more than that every two years. But though the problem is bigger than plastic, it is generally seen as less severe. Concrete is not derived from fossil fuels. It is not being found in the stomach of whales and seagulls. Doctors aren’t discovering traces of it in our blood Nor do we see it tangled in oak trees or contributing to subterranean. fatbergs. We know where we are with concrete. Or to be more precise, we know where it is going: nowhere Which is exactly why we have come to rely on it.

 

This solidify, of course, is what human kind yearns for. Concrete is beloved for its weight and endurance. That is why it serves as the foundation of modern life holding time, nature, the elements and entropy at bay. When combined with steel is the material that ensures our dames don’t burst our towr blocks don’t fall, our roads don’t buckle and our electricity grid  remains connected.

Question 19 – Read the following passage and answer the questions that follow:

I drop Khasnobis at the Park Hotel – I suspect he has a booze session there – and dart quickly out of the heart of Calcutta. The Salt Lake City is on the right side of a alodrous road leading to the Calcutta airport. This new township is relatively clean and its roads are broad – Bengal’s Chief Minister lives here – but it lacks the tang of old Calcutta. It has some bizarre buildings. My guest house, for instance, is an architectural flimflam. One first walks into a cavernous hall painted pastel blue. A concrete carbuncle erupts right at the centre of its otherwise flat roof. Its cavity is painted baby pink. Mock Corinthian pilasters protrude from its walls. At the end of the hall is a flight of stairs, which leads to a set of rooms with ornate wooden doors. One of the rooms is mine.

My room usually smells dank, but today it is prussic acid. I call the caretaker.

“What is this smell?”

He wrinkles his nose and sniffs the air.

“It is room freshener, sir.” He fishes out a container from one of the side cupboards and hands it over to me. It is indeed the room freshner. It assures you of a redolence of wild roses.

“I was happy with dank, friend”.

“Sir?”

“Never mind. Is there another room vacant? I can’t sleep in this room.”

The caretaker wrings his hands. “No room is vacant on this floor sir. I could ask one of the guests to swap his room with yours.”

“No, I don’t want that. What about the rooms on the top floor?”

“We have two rooms on the top floor, sir. One of them is vacant. But it is not air- conditioned.”

“I don’t mind sleeping there. Kindly get the roon ready for me.”

The night is breezy and pleasant. I light up a mosquito repellent and, in the whirring comfort of the ceiling fan, lapse into a delicious sleep.

I wake up with a start, sweating all over. The ceiling fan has ceased whirring. The power must have gone off. The mosquito coil eyes me with an orange glow. Where is Ghosh sleeping now? Does he have a ceiling fan in his room? Or a mosquito coil? Does he have a room at all? Is he sleeping in the open? As I stand up and walk towards the window the ceiling fan begins its drone. The light that comes from a window a few yards across from mine is not strong enough to illuminate my room but bright enough to show me what is going on in that room. I silently draw the curtains and get back to bed. I am not a voyeur.

Based on the information given in the passage about the narrator’s place of accommodation, find out the option that is erroneous.

Options

  1. The rooms with ornate wooden doors were not on the topmost floor of the guest house and were air-conditioned and occupied.
  2. The guest house opens into a huge hall painted in pastel blue which has a false ceiling at the center of the room done in baby pink.
  3. The single storey guest house, located in old calcutta, is an example of bizarre buildings in the area and is itself a sham of architectural design.
  4. The rectangular columns sticking out from the walls in the main hall were more examples of the architectural hypocrisy of the building.

Answer – The rooms with ornate wooden doors were not on the topmost floor of the guest house and were air-conditioned and occupied.

Question 20 – According to the passage, which of the following options is true?

  1. The narrator gets back to bed because he respects people’s privacy and did not want to snoop on others unwatched.
  2. The narrator was not ready to be discovered snooping into other’s privacy and there was a risk of people seeing him.
  3. The narrator knew at any moment the power would come back and in bright lights there was always a chance that people outside would see him.
  4. The narrator was disgusted with people’s lack of civic sense when he follows the light coming from another window and decides to get to bed.

Answer – The narrator gets back to bed because he respects people’s privacy and did not want to snoop on others unwatched.

Question 21 – Which of the following statements DOES NOT hold good as per the information given in the passage?

  1. On other days too the narrator’s room was not a comfortable one as it was unpleasantly damp and unaired.
  2. The narrator requests the caretaker to shift his room as he was unable to bear the distinctive smell which had filled the air.
  3. When the narrator questions the caretaker, he takes out a bottle of room freshener from his uniform pocket and tells him that this was the cause of the obnoxious smell in the room.
  4. The caretaker is submissive to the complaints raised by the narrator and offers to help him out even though he has several limitations in the present set up.

Answer – 

Question 22 – Read the passage and answer the question:

When we arrive at the crucial tension at the heart of gender identity politics, and one that most of its proponents either haven’t noticed, or choose to ignore because it can only be resolved by rejecting some of the key tenets of the doctrine.

Many people justifiably assume that the word ‘transgender’ is synonymous with ‘transesxual’, and means something like : having dysphoria and distress about your sexed body, and having a desire to alter that body to make it more closely resemble the body of opposite sex. But according to the current terminology of gender identity politics, being transgender has nothing to do with a desire to change your sexed body. What it means to be trasngender is that your innate gender identity does not match the gender you were assigned at birth. This might be the case even if you are perfectly happy and content in the boy you possess. You are transgender simply of you identify as one gender, but socially have been perceived as another.

It is a key tenet of the doctrine that the vast majority of people can be described as ‘cisgender’, which means that our innate gender identity matches the one we were assigned at birth. But as we have seen, if gender identity is a spectrum, then we are all non-binary, because none of us inhabits the points represented by the ends of that spectrum. Every single one of us will exist at some unique point along that spectrum, determined by the individual and idiosyncratic nature of our own particular identity, and our own subjective experience of gender. Given that, it’s not clear how anybody ever could be cisgender. None of us was assigned our correct gender identity at birth, for how could we possibly have been?

Once we recognise that the number of gender identities is potentially infinite, we are forced to concede that nobody is deep down cisgender, because nobody is assigned the correct gender identity at birth. In fact, none of us was assigned a gender identity at birth at all. We were placed into one of two sex classes on the basis of our potential reproductive function, determined by our external genitals. We were then raised in accordance with the socially prescribed gender norms for people of that sex. We are all educated and inculcated into one of two roles, long before we are able to express our beliefs about our innate gender identity, or to determine for ourselves the precise point at which we fall on the gender continuum. So defining transgender people as those who at birth were not assigned the correct place on the gender spectrum has the implication that every single one of us is transgender; there are no cisgender people.

The logical conclusion of all this is: if gender is a spectrum, not a binary, then everyone is trans. Or alternatively, there are no trans people. Either way, this a profoundly unsatisfactory conclusion, and one that serves both to obscure the reality of female oppression, as well as to erase and invalidate the experiences of transsexual people.

The way to avoid this conclusion is to realize that gender is not a spectrum. It’s not a spectrum, because it’s not an innate, internal essence or property. Gender is not a fact about persons that we must take as fixed and essential, and then build our social institutions around that fact. Gender is socially constructed all the way through, an externally imposed hierarchy, with two classes, occupying two value positions: male over female, man over woman, masculinity over femininity.

The truth of the spectrum analogy lies in the fact that conformity to one’s place in the hierarchy, and to the roles it assigns to people, will vary from person to person. The solution is not to reify gender by insisting on ever more gender categories that define the complexity of human personality in rigid and essentialist ways. The solution is to abolish gender altogether. We do not need gender. We would be better off without it. Gender as a hierarchy with two positions operates to naturalise and perpetuate the subordination of female people to male people, and constrains the development of individuals of both sexes. Reconceiving of gender as an identity spectrum represents no improvement.The solution to an oppressive system that puts people into pink and blue boxes is not to create more and more boxes that are any colour but blue or pink. The solution is to tear down the boxes altogether.

Which statement is true among the four options?

  1. Social structures around the globe have become amorphous and porous, making it very easy for the average citizen to express his/her beliefs about their distinctive gender identity.
  2. Family and society mould us, educate us and inculcate progeny into one of two roles. As infants, expression of disparate attractions, identity or beliefs is non-existent.
  3. From ancient times, Indian government has been inclusive about all manner of sexual identity and our relifious texts are replete with people professing vaious identities.
  4. The author is a leader of social mores and religion, enabling her to understand the vicissitudes among human beings.

Question 23 – Though Nature dictates biology, gender politics is social. Which option correctly reflects this truism?

  1. The rules of natural law are intrinsic to humans. But human nature and positive law may be independent of it. Society and governments want to legislate, and not necessarily accept man’s inherent rights.
  2. It is in the best interest of natural order that men and women follow the ancient rule of hunter-gatherer and nurturer. There is a higher order and meaning in this division of labour, and society should follow it.
  3. Though biology and birth are factual and fixed, a result of evolution or God, gender politics is a socially constructed pyramid, imposed by the stronger or richer, that says man occupies a higher position and has power over women.
  4. Power play and politics manipulates the economically or socially weak for political benefit routinely. Toxic ideas of gender shape social identity and political thought. In this, Nature is left far behind, an expedient accomplice.

Question 24 – Which is the simplest way to describe a transgender, according to the author?

Options

  1. The description is about people who enjoy the freedom to exercise their individual choices in any way.
  2. The description is about outcasts and outliers in society, who simply cannot fit into the normal social dynamics.
  3. It describes a person who feels wronged by parents and society and straightjacketed into a persona they are not.
  4. The description is about the instinctual personality at a person discovered as antithetical to what was originally and natally dispensed.

Question 25 – Would you infer from the passage that ‘cisgender’ humans occupy at least half of the population?

Options

  1. It is conjectured that there are some who are comfortable in their personalities/skin, possibly identify wholly with a social or biological construct and accept the cisgender theory to describe themselves.
  2. Almost all humans are not hundred percent classically masculine or feminine but have inimitable crossover personality traits. E.g. a man may be ultra sensitive, or a lady a highly reasonable stoic. This implies we are unique and non binary, not a true cisgender
  3. If man considers himself an animal, albeit an evolved one, then a clear male-female gender universe makes an equitable universe, where different labels do not have any meaning.
  4. Our  subjective experience about gender influences the adult we will eventually become, regardless of what we were called at birth. It is a choice of some societies, and thus cisgender offers clarity place and position.
