Consider the following function that takes as input a sequence $A$ of integers with n elements,$A[1],A[2], \dots ,A[n]$ and an integer $k$ and returns an integer value. The function length$(S)$ returns the length of the sequence $S$. Comments start with ... case complexity of this algorithm in terms of the length of the input sequence $A$? Give an example of a worst-case input for this algorithm.

We are given a sequence of pairs of integers $(a_1, b_1),(a_2, b_2), \dots ,(a_n, b_n)$. We would like to compute the largest $k$ such that there is a sequence of numbers $c_{i_1} \leq c_{i_2} \leq \dots \leq c_{i_k}$ ... for each $j \leq k$, $c_{i_j}=a_{i_j}$ or $c_{i_j} = b_{i_j}$ . Describe an algorithm to solve this problem and explain its complexity.

An undirected graph is $\text{connected}$ if, for any two vertices $\{u, v\}$ of the graph, there is a path in the graph starting at $u$ and ending at $v$. A tree is a connected, undirected graph that contains no cycle. A $\text{leaf}$ in a tree is a vertex that has degree ... $u \in V_1$ and v$ \in V_2$ or vice versa. Prove that if $G$ is a tree with at least two vertices, then $G$ is bipartite.

Let $Σ = \{a, b\}$. Given words $u, v \in Σ*$ , we say that $v$ extends $u$ if $v$ is of the form $xuy$ for some $x, y ∈ Σ^*$ . Given a fixed word $u$, we are interested in identifying whether a finite state automaton accepts some word that extends $u$. ... reports Yes if some word in the language of $\mathcal{A}$ extends $u$ and No if no word in the language of $\mathcal{A}$ extends $u$.

There are a number of tourist spots in a city and a company GoMad runs shuttle services between them. Each shuttle plies between a designated origin and destination, and has a name. Due to lack of coordination, the same name may be allotted to multiple routes. To make matters worse, ... you are carrying a GoMad pass or a GoCrazy pass, you can start at $s$ and arrive at $t$ using the sequence $σ$.

Let $Σ = \{a, b, c\}$. Let Leven be the set of all even length strings in $Σ^*$ $(a)$ Construct a deterministic finite state automaton for $L_{even}$. $(b$) We consider an operation $Erase_{ab}$ that takes as input a string $w \in Σ^*$ and erases all occurrences of the pattern $ab$ ... in $L:$ $Erase_{ab}(L)$:= $\{ Erase_{ab}(w)\ |\ w\in L\}$ Show that $Erase_{ab}(L_{even}$) is a regular language.

A $\text{stable sort}$ preserves the order of values that are equal with respect to the comparison function. We have a list of three-dimensional points $[(7, 1, 8),(3, 5, 7),(6, 1, 4),(6, 5, 9),(0, 2, 5),(9, 0, 9)].$ We sort these in ascending order by the second coordinate. Which of the following corresponds to a ... $[(9, 0, 9),(6, 1, 4),(7, 1, 8),(0, 2, 5),(3, 5, 7),(6, 5, 9)]$

Consider the following functions f() and g(). f(){ g(){ w=5; z=w+1; w=2*z+2; z=3*z-w; } print(z); } We start with $w$ and $z$ set to $0$ and execute $f()$ and $g()$ in parallel—that is, at each step we either execute one statement from $f()$ or one statement from $g()$. Which of the following is not a possible value printed by $g()$ ? $-2$ $-1$ $2$ $4$
