Given lat long of cabs in a city(lat long keeps changing)

Implement a function getNearby(lat1,long1) which returns all cabs in a circle of radius R from lat1,long1.

Which datastructure will u use?

FollowUp qs: Hows it implemented using a database like MySQl or Postgres.

Give me a list of int, find the length of the smallest cycle. For example, 1, 2, 1, 2, the length of the cycle is 2. Then 1, 2, 1, 2, 1 has a minimum length of 2. Then the length of 1, 2, 1, 2, 3 should be 5 because the entire list is not in repeat. Then the minimum length of 1, 2, 1, 2, 1, 1, 2 is 2.

For two string a, b, their distance is defined as the number of positions at which the corresponding character are different.

Now you can swap characters at any two locations once, and ask how to swap to make the distance the smallest.

A coffee machine has three buttons (S, M, L). After pressing each button, the coffee machine will flow out of a range of coffee [s1, s2], [m1, m2], [l1, l2], but the outflow of coffee The amount is random. There is a cup with a total capacity of c2. There is a tick c1 on the cup. If the amount of coffee is [c1, c2], it is considered full.

After asking for a series of button operations, can the coffee be filled in [c1, c2] but not overflow?

turns the following format string into a tree: node has keys, values, and subtrees.

For example, the first key is node1 and the value is ‘aaaa’

<node1>aaaaa<node2>bbbbb</node2><node3>cccc</node3><node4>dddd</node4></node1>

Give a 0/1 matrix to find and remove the islands. Assume that the boundaries of the matrix are 1

The definition of islands is surrounded by 0

The simplest example is

enter:

111111

100001

100101

100001

111111

Output:

111111

100001

100001

100001

111111

Given an integer n (say somewhere between 100 and 1000), you want to generate a random binary tree having exactly n nodes. You are only interested in the structure of the tree. Each structurally unique tree should ideally have the same chance of being generated.

Given k numbers as strings. The numbers may be very large (may not fit in long long int), the task is to find sum of these k numbers.

Example

S1 = “100”

S2 = “10”

S3 = “1”

Return “111”

Find the final states of a n-nary tree

each node has three states, 0,1,2.

Require that if all child nodes are 2,

The parent node is also 2.

All child nodes are 0, the parent node is 0, and the rest are all 1s.

Given two functions, start (id, start_time), stop (id, time),

Respectively, to the id assignment start and end time, gave a bunch of such operations (to ensure that the operation start small id first appeared,

And each id last have start_time and stop_time), press the start order to print the corresponding id, start_time, stop_time,

Requirements of space complexity as small as possible,

e.g., start (1, 1), start (2, 2), stop (2, 3), start (3, 4), stop

The print order is (1,1,6), (2,3,2), (3,4,5) # (id, start_time, end_time).

In the range of 0-n, return all the numbers that in the reverse can be mistaken for another number. E.g. 18 -> 81. The corner case is not counting the same number, such as 101 and not 0 at the end of the figure such as 60 (because 09 is not 9)
