 In pseudocode, write a function that takes in an arbitrary string of lowercase letters and an integer n of 0 or more. Return the number of times the character 'a' appears in the string, reading in n characters from the string, in order. If n is greater than the length of the string, loop back to the beginning of the string upon reaching the end.4 AnswersIterating over the characters in the string, and counting the number of times a character appears. The index into the string was determined with mod n.taking in characters 'n' at a time is kind of irrelevant in the beginning it just shows you how many you need to take from the beginning of the string once you've gone through the entire thing. So make a variable like int redo = myString.length % n; Go through looking for the character 'a' and incrament a counter. Afterward, iterate through again from beginning until less than redo and return.Can't we do this? aCount(S : str, n : int): i=0 count=0 while(iShow More ResponsesCan't we do this?,,,, i,count=0,0 while(i

 There are three buckets, one with apples, one with oranges, and one with a mixture of both. They are all labeled wrong. You can pick one piece of fruit from one bucket, what would you pick to determine what is in all three buckets? 4 AnswersThere is no way to determine the answer, just by picking one fruit alone. First, I'd pay attention to the 2 buckets that give off an orange smell. Then, I'd dive my hand into the bucket, taking care to feel what's around my hand. Picking up the fruit doesn't really matter; it's whether the bucket you picked just has oranges or not.I posted the question, sorry, I should have answered it. You pick a piece from the basket labeled "mixed." This is because you know it is labeled wrong (every basket is). So, if you pull out an orange you know that the basket holds only oranges. Now you have one basket figured out, and you know the remaining two are also mislabeled, so you switch their labels and you're done.The question should state that the label always lie. If the label says "Apple Only" it could be "Mixture" or "Orange only" So the one labeled "Mixture" is either "Apple Only" or "Orange Only". So you choose Mixture and what ever fruit you get is the label that is correct. Then switch the other two.Show More ResponsesAll of the answers are close but not entirely correct. Any box is labeled incorrectly. Choose the mixture box. If you pick out an orange, it is necessarily an orange only box. The other two must only be the mixture or apples only. The mislabeld apples only box must be the mixture because it is mislabeled and there are only 2 other choices left. The last box is the mixture. This is the order in which you must think, although the particular fruit you pick up first could be either apple or orange.

 The clock reads 9:45, what's the angle between the hour and minute hand?3 AnswersEither 0 degrees, or 360 degrees as both the hour and minute hands will be pointing at "9."0 or 360 degrees, otherwise known as a full angle.The answer is 22.5 degrees. An hour hand moves 30 degrees per hour (1/12 of a 360 degree rotation), 0.5 degrees per minute.

 Drawer contains socks. If I randomly pull 2, what is the probability that I will get a matching pair?3 Answers200% ( my drawer)You have to know how many different: (styles,colors,sizes )and total for a correct answer. I roll mine together (matching).So one pair each time from my drawer.The answer to this question is a tad nuanced, and that's likely the reason why they're asking it. You'll want to ask if every sock has 1 (and only 1) mate, which is a reasonable assumption. If they say that's a fair assumption to make then the answer is 1/(2n -1) where n is the number of pairs of socks in the drawer. The reasoning here is that given these assumptions, the first sock you pick will not matter. The second sock just has to match the first, and at this point there is 1 match in the drawer, and 2n - 1 socks left in the drawer. Of course, if they say this is not a reasonable assumption, and provide you with more information on the contents of the drawer (e.g. there are 3 socks without a match, and also a set of three pairs of interchangeable socks, and 3 'normal' pairs) then the question will change considerably, and you'll have to demonstrate a knowledge of probabilities to answer the question properly.

 You have a 5 gal and 3 gal bucket. How do you measure out 4 gallons of water exactly without using anything else, and the buckets cannot be partially filled as a measure?3 AnswersWatch Die Hard 3Use the 5g bucket and fill it up. Pour it into the 3g bucket until it is completely full, which will result in 2g left in the 5g bucket. Pour that into a container and repeat to get another 2g of water which can be added to the previous 2g to get 4g.Assuming you don't have a third container... fill 5 gal bucket, pour it into 3 gal leaving 2 gals in larger bucket. Empty three gal bucket and then pour the remaining 2 gal from large bucket into the 3 gal bucket. Refill 5 gal bucket and then use it to fill 3 gal bucket, leaving 4 gals in the larger bucket.
