    1) Write a program for the problem: the array of inetegers indicating the marks of the students is given, U have to calculate the percentile of the students aaccording to this rule: the percentile of a student is the %of no of student having marks less then him. 
    For eg: suppose

    Student Marks
    A 12
    B 60
    C 80
    D 71
    E 30
    F 45

    percentile of C = 5/5 *100 = 100 (out of 5 students 5 are having marks less then him)

    percentile of B = 3/5*100 = 60% (out of 5, 3 have markses less then him)

    percentile of A = 0/5*100 = 0%.

    2) The code was given for a problem and u have to identitfy the logical error in it. That was simple. The code was to merge the Danagrams of 2 words. The danagram of a word is the letters of word arranfed in sequential order. eg danagram of abhinav is aabhinv.
    merging of danamagram is to merge the danagrams of 2 or more words such that the highest no of occurance are coming for each merging of aabhinv and abbhhixz is aabbhhinvxz.
