Your program is supposed to compile and run correctly with the expected output, for you to score marks in the programming questions.

The shortlisted candidates (based on the online test) will be invited for interviews. The interviews will involve questions on fundamentals of computer science, and will test the depth of your understanding in the areas of your interest.
