*JavaScript* Coding interview questions with solutions:-

Question1:-
You would like to set a password for a bank account. However, there are three restrictions on the format of the password:

it has to contain only alphanumerical characters (a−z, A−Z, 0−9);

there should be an even number of letters;

there should be an odd number of digits.

You are given a string S consisting of N characters. String S can be divided into words by splitting it at, and removing, the spaces. The goal is to choose the longest word that is a valid password. You can assume that if there are K spaces in string S then there are exactly K + 1 words.

For example, given "test 5 a0A pass007 ?xy1", there are five words and three of them are valid passwords: "5", "a0A" and "pass007". Thus the longest password is "pass007" and its length is 7. Note that neither "test" nor "?xy1" is a valid password, because "?" is not an alphanumerical character and "test" contains an even number of digits (zero).

Write a function:

int solution(char *S);

that, given a non-empty string S consisting of N characters, returns the length of the longest word from the string that is a valid password. If there is no such word, your function should return −1.

For example, given S = "test 5 a0A pass007 ?xy1", your function should return 7, as explained above.

Assume that:

N is an integer within the range [1..200];

string S consists only of printable ASCII characters and spaces.

In your solution, focus on correctness. The performance of your solution will not be the focus of the assessment.

Solution1:-

function solution(S) {

// write your code in JavaScript (Node.js 6.4.0)

var pwds = S.split(" ");

var pwdLen = -1;

pwds.forEach(function(pwd){

if(pwd.match(/^[a-zA-Z0-9]*$/)){

if(pwd.length%2!=1)

return;

var chrCnt = pwd.match(/[a-zA-Z]/g || []).length;

if(chrCnt%2!=0)

return;

if (pwd.length > pwdLen)

pwdLen = pwd.length;

}

});

return pwdLen;

}

Question2:-

Given four integers, display the maximum time possible in 24 hour format HH:MM. For example, if you are give A = 1, B = 9, C = 9, D = 2 then output should be 19:29. Max time can be 23:59 and min time can be 00:00.

If it is not possible to construct 24 hour time then return error. For example, given A = 1, B = 9, C = 7, D = 9 an error should be returned since minimum time represented by these integers is 17:99 which is “NOT POSSIBLE”?

Solution2:-

function solution(A, B, C, D) {

var arr = [];

var digit = [];

var timeString = "";

//create array from given numbers

arr.push(A);

arr.push(B);

arr.push(C);

arr.push(D);

digit[0] = findMax(arr,2);

digit[1] = digit[0]==2?findMax(arr,3):findMax(arr,9);

digit[2] = findMax(arr,5);

digit[3] = findMax(arr, 9);

//final number

if(digit[0] ==-1 ||digit[1] ==-1||digit[2] ==-1||digit[3] ==-1){

return "NOT POSSIBLE";

}

timeString = digit[0]+""+digit[1]+":"+digit[2]+""+digit[3];

return timeString;

}

//finding the less than equal number and return it

function findMax(arr, find){

if(arr.length!=4)

{

return -1;

}

var numToFind = -1;

var indexToRemove = -1;

//iterate arrary

for(var i = 0; i < arr.length;i++){

if(arr[i] <= find)

{

if(arr[i]> numToFind)

{

numToFind = arr[i];

indexToRemove =i;

}

}

}

if (indexToRemove == -1)

return -1;

arr[indexToRemove] = -1;

return numToFind;

}

Question3:-Given DOM tree I need to find the maximum depth of the nested ul/ol tags.

Example:-

<ul>

<li>Item:

<ol>

<li>Point:

<div>

<ul>

<li>elem1</li>

</ul>

</div>

</li>

</ol>

</li>

<li>elem2</li>

</ul>

<ul>

<li>simple list1</li>

</ul>

<ul>

</ul>

The depth would be 3

Solution3:-

function solution() {

var len, max_depth=0;

$('li:not(:has(ol)):not(:has(ul))').each(function(){

len = $(this).parents('ul,ol').length;

if(len > max_depth)

max_depth =len;

});

//console.log(max_depth);

return max_depth;

}
