 Telephone interview: Find largest integer from an array of integers. The integers in the array are arranged in strictly increasing (no 2 integers are same) or strictly increasing then decreasing; so like a curve and you have to find the peak. Discuss time complexity. Write code. 4 AnswersBinary searchFirst, binary search will not work since just looking at a single point will not tell you if it's on the decreasing or increasing side of the curve. What you need is modified binary search. Looking at position i check position i+1 if it's increasing then search right otherwise search left; Code: int peak(vector V, int i, int iStart, int iEnd){ assert( i >= 0 && i = 0 && iStart = 0 && iEnd < V.size()); assert( iStart <= i && i <= iEnd ); if (i == iEnd) return i; int iCurr = V[i]; int iNext = V[i+1]; int iStartNew = iStart; int iEndNew = iEndl if( iCurr < iNext ) iStartNew = i; else iEndNew = i; int iNew = (iEndNew-iStartNew)/2; if( iNew == i ) iNew++; return peak(V, iNew, iStartNew, iEndNew); }The question is a variation of the commonly asked problem of finding the start/end index of a sorted array that has been rotated. Takes O(log n) time.Show More ResponsesYou can solve this question using ternary search

 Write a pgm to find out if call stack address is increasing or decreasing3 Answerswhat kind of entrance exam? Such stupid interview, guess pretty much like those in India. My expereince was if interviewer & candidate are from India, no such testing etc. If interviewer is from India and candidate is of other nationality, yes, because that will give the interviewer an excuse not to hire.@M: it's a pretty common question irrespective of the nationality of the interviewer. I was asked the same question by a Caucasian guy at a different firm and I didn't get the job - not because of my (or his) nationality, but because I wasn't technically strong enough.M. I am here in states and am Indian and I bet you have no idea how difficult Indian interviewers are! If you are an Indian and he is Indian too, he would give you a benefit of doubt! Yes some of us are like that, but I guess every where there are some folks like that! Cheers!
