Note.      Attempt any five questions. All question carry equal marks. Make suitable assumption


1.  (a) Consider a sorted array of  ‘N’  element . Element are sorted in ascending order. A new element in

           To be inserted in this array such that array remains sorted, algorithm for this operation.

     (b) Write a program to find largest and smallest in any array.

2. (a) Write a recursive algorithms  to calculate the factorial of a given number. What is the importance?

           Of stack is recursion?

   (b) Consider a 2-D array declared in ‘c’ A [20] [30]. Element type is integer .if the base address is 1076,

          What will be the address of A [17] [29] memory is byte oriented?

 3.   How stacks and queue can be represented by circular list? Write algorithm for primitive operation of

          Stacks and queue represented circular list


4. (a) Convert the following infix notation into prefix and postfix notation :


     (ii)   a+b+c+d

    (iii) (a+b ?c)*(e+f/d*g)

   (iv) –a *(*b++)c– –

      (b) Explain the implementation of list linked using array and dynamic memory allocation.

5. (a) The following nodes are inserted into empty tree in order :

              5, 16, 22, 45, 2, 10, 18, 30, 50, 12, 1

             Construct the following:

          (iii) Heap tree

  (b)   Write a sort note on m –way search tree.

6. (a) A binary tree T has 9 nodes. The in order and pre order traversal of T yield of the following

          sequence of nodes:

     Inorder:     E A C K F H D B G

     Preorder     F A E K C D H G B

     Draw the tree.

             1, 7, 3, 2, 0, 5, 0, 8

          Sort them using:

       (i) Bubble sort (ii) insertion sort (iii) selection sort

       In terms of best, average and worst case.
