CTS (PSG TECH)

There are totally 5 sections in the qp and each section has 8 questions.
NO. of questions = 40
Time = 60 min
Negative marking = 0.25 for each wrong answer

SECTION 1(try this at last because it is very tough and time consuming)
L1, L2 - lists
M(L1,L2) = L1 + L2
If , L = (a,b,c)
A(L) = a (first term); B(L) = (b,c) (except the first term)

I] P(L) = L if L=( ), & B(L)=()
P(L) = A(B(L)) if L <> ( ), and B(L)<>( ) B(B(L))=( )
P(L) = M(A(L)), M(A(B(L)), P(B(B(L))) if B(B(L) <>C)

II] R(L) = L : B(L)=( )
R(L) = A(L) if L<>()
R(L) = M(dont know), R(B(B(L)))if B(B(L)) <>( )

With the above instructions, find the following using iterations:
1. R(P(L)) where L=(a,b,(a,b),(b,a))
2. R(P(L)) where L=(a,(a),(b,b),b)

Example(1)P(L)=P(a,b,(a,b),(b,a))
where A(L)=(a)
B(L)=(b,(a,b),(b,a))
B(B(L))=((a,b),(b,a))
So, third condition is applicable
So, P(L)=M(a,M(b,P((a,b),(b,a))) find this using the same rule and iterate.

SECTION 2
If GODG is a valid work, then the no. of valid words in the string (GGODGG,
GGOGGD, GGOGDGGG, ....)
(* Not aware of correct procedure)

SECTION 3

A 'TARGET' is a number and 'BRICK' has five numbers as clue. Use only four
numbers (only once each number) from 'BRICK' using arithmetic opertions,
+,-,*,/,() and attain the 'TARGET'
1. TARGET = 114 BRICK =
2. TARGET = 19 BRICK = 8,11,5,5,2
3. TARGET = 87 BRICK =
4. TARGET = 146 BRICK =
5. TARGET= 127 BRICK =

Ans: for 2 questions
19 = (8+11-5+5)
so ans = (8,11,5,5)
