How would you reverse a the words in a string? (Be able to defend answer)

4 Answers

String reverse(String s){ length = s.length()-1; s1 = ""; while(length >=0){ s1 += s[length]; length--; } return s1; } //wrote the code in 1 minute, did not test it or walk through it, use at your own risk

I got the other idea of not using a buffer (a better solution) String reverseWithoutBuffer(String s){ if (s.length() == 0 || s.length() == 1){return s;} length = s.length()-1; i = 0; while (i != length){ String s1 = s[i]; s[i] = s[length]; s[length] = s1; i--; length--; } return s; } //did not test it or walk through it, use at your own risk

I mean i++ (not i--), sorry

Technical questions were very basic. If you don't know fundamentals then you're screwed before you even get interviewed. HR questions were all name a specific situation where you had xyz problem and steps to resolve. i.e. Name a time when you had to make a group decision and what was the outcome. How did you reach the outcome as a group and how did you contribute individually.
