 Palindrome date. 4 Answerstook me some time12/31/1390 it can't be after the 1300's because the highest date in a month is 31 (inverted to 13xx for the year). the highest xx is 90 to make the month 09. the only choices are 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 01 11 and 21 for the xx anyway since there are 12 months.i mean 09/31/1390Show More Responsesshouldn't it be 08/31/1380, instead of 09/31/1390 as there is no 31st in 09 (Sep)

 Here is the brain teaser question: Given integers as 1, 2, 3, 4, ..., N. Every time you remove an alternative element until only one is left. If you reach the end, just do a rounding. Return the remaining element. For example, given 1,2,3,4,5,6, you remove 1, 3, 5 and then 2, 6. So the remaining element is 4. What is the remaining element if N is 2000?8 AnswersYou need matched experience. Otherwise don't waste your time.1001?1024Show More Responses1024I'll try to explain why everyone says the answer is 1024. 1) You start from removing all *odd* values, which would leave you just the *even* numbers. (2, 4, 6, etc.) 2) In the next round, you remove all numbers that are *not multiples of 4*. Remaining with (4, 8, 12, etc.) 3) In the next round, you remove all numbers that are *not multiples of 8*. Remaining with (8, 16, 24, etc.) If you repeat this process, you are basically scaling the leading value by 2 and dividing the length of this array by 2. Once the array is size 1, you are returning the leading value. So effectively, you're just going through the values 1, 2, 4, 8, etc. until you reach the biggest value that is smaller than the size of the array.200010241024 is the answer
