Airbnb

There are 7 cities with a library in each. Everything got destroyed. We have to rebuild such that people at every city have access somehow to at least one library.

2 réponses

Build a new city with a YUGE library :-)

Question felt incomplete. I assumed that a road between 2 cities costs x and if you have to travel from city A to city B to finally get to city C then the cost is x + x = 2x. He said NO! I assumed that building a library costs y, he asked me why should I care about library cost! It was just a nightmare of a discussion but I somehow got him to let me code my solution after 20 mins Moins

Why should I hire you?

1 réponses

Such a direct question caught me a bit off guard. I responded by citing my success working on interdisciplinary teams and learning new fields quickly, which the interviewer acknowledged as desirable skills but also noted that I would not have been invited for the interview in the first place if they did not believe I possessed those skills.

The whole idea of this question is to get the ASCII of the character and determine it's location in the array, using integer division and modulus. Moins
