Hello Friends,
I went for an interview to a company: they asked me these 2 questions:

1> I have a rope. There is no tool available to measure that rope. I can just measure that rope using time.
For example i set it on fire and the rope burns for one hour.

a>Now i want to measure the rope for half an hour what to do?
b>I want to measure it for 45 minutes. How to do?


2> I have a figure below:
Smile | :)
Smile | :) Smile | :)
Smile | :) Smile | :) Smile | :)
Smile | :) Smile | :) Smile | :) Smile | :)

I want to convert it to:
Smile | :) Smile | :) Smile | :) Smile | :)
Smile | :) Smile | :) Smile | :)
Smile | :) Smile | :)
Smile | :)

You have 2 options:
a>Either use 3 smilies at once to rearrange the figure.
b>Or use a combination of (2 + 1) smilies to rearrange the figure.
which means you have only 1 chance if you use 3 smilies.
OR
2 chances if you use (2 + 1) smilies

You cant do a 1 + 1 + 1 combination of smilies to rearrange the figure.

I was given 15 minutes to solve the above problems.


Thanks a ton
