A college prepares its timetable by grouping courses in slots A, B, C, . . . All courses in a slot meet at the same time, and courses in different slots have disjoint timings. Course registration has been completed and the administration now knows which ... courses with an overlapping audience. In this setting, the graph theoretic question to be answered is: Find a maximum size independent set.

There is a thin, long and hollow fibre with a virus in the centre. The virus occasionally becomes active and secretes some side products. The fibre is so thin that new side products secreted by the virus push the old products along the ... if a single virus could possibly have produced the given sequence. Use dynamic programming, checking smaller subsequences before checking bigger subsequences.

Consider the code below, defining the functions $f$ and $g$: f(m, n) { if (m == 0) return n; else { q = m div 10; r = m mod 10; return f(q, 10*n + r); } } g(m, n) { if (n == 0) return m; else { q = m div 10; r = m mod 10; return g(f(f(q, 0), r), n-1); } } How much time does it take to compute $f(m, n)$ and $g(m, n)$?

You are given $n$ positive integers, $d_1, d_2 \dots d_n$, each greater than $0$. Design a greedy algorithm to test whether these integers correspond to the degrees of some $n$-vertex simple undirected graph $G = (V, E)$. [A simple graph has no self-loops and at most one edge between any pair of vertices].

Consider a social network with $n$ persons. Two persons $A$ and $B$ are said to be connected if either they are friends or they are related through a sequence of friends: that is, there exists a set of persons $F_1, \dots, F_m$ such that $A$ and $F_1$ ... friends. It is known that there are $k$ persons such that no pair among them is connected. What is the maximum number of friendships possible?

You arrive at a snack bar and you can't decide whether to order a lime juice or a lassi. You decide to throw a fair $6$-sided die to make the choice, as follows. If you throw $2$ or $6$ you order a lime juice. If you throw a $4$, you order a lassi. Otherwise, you throw the die ... is the probability that you end up ordering a lime juice? $\frac{1}{3}$ $\frac{1}{2}$ $\frac{2}{3}$ $\frac{3}{4}$

Twin primes are pairs of numbers $p$ and $p+2$ such that both are primes-for instance, $5$ and $7$, $11$ and $13$, $41$ and $43$. The Twin Prime Conjecture says that there are infinitely many twin primes. Let $\text{TwinPrime}(n)$ be a predicate that is true if $n$ ... $\exists m \cdot \forall n \cdot \text{TwinPrime}(n) \text{ implies }n \leq m$
