write a script to be able to expand this regular expression and print out the results host0[000-100] should return ...

4 Answers

for i in `echo host0{000..100}`; do echo $i; done

printf "\n" `seq 0 100`

There's a lot of elements to typically cover in these questions, clarifications, scoping, making sure you're answering the actual question the interviewer is looking for you to answer, etc. Could be worth doing a mock interview with one of the Prepfully Yahoo Service Engineer experts... they've worked in the role so they clearly know how to get through the interview.

You are hiking through the jungle and stumble across a treasure chest in a 9ft DIA, 11 ft deep hole. List solutions to the retrieval of the treasure chest.

5 Answers

If the chest has handles, you can create a mechanical structure over the hole, to winch it up. If it does not, drop a ladder into the hole, climb down and attempt to open treasure chest. Small C4 charge and some det cord should get you around most locks. There are endless answers, a crane, etc... Less

I will try to get a ladder or tie a rope to a tree nearby, go down the hole and carry the treasure chest in my hands out of the hole. The point is they have not mentioned anything about the treasure chest size. So i will presume it to be a small size chest. Less

Dig a slot on the edge of the hole to 11ft outside maybe and make a ramp. It will give you a 45degree slope to go down and pull the chest up. Less

I was offered the job on Thursday night after the interview, went home told my wife we celebrated! received an email on Friday evening at 7:30 informing me that there was no jobs available? ? however my file was being kept for 6 month's? ?

I had similar, did all tests and assessments and was told I was successful, completed the medical and got a certificate saying I was fit to be a sky installer. Then the day after this got an email saying I was successful but the position was filled so they will keep me on file. Hoping to hear in the near future but not holding my breath... Less

Sky wasted so much of my time! To treat me and others the way they have is disgusting! Really disappointed they bang on and on about customer service yet one of there engineers told me that "the best way to stop customers moaning is sky will throw them a bone ie: free WiFi for a month or half price for 6 month's most of our customers are stupid and jump at the chance " his word's? I just sat there thinking I'm a sky customer lol .. anyway even if they did offer me a position now I wouldn't take it I'm certainly not working for a company that can do this to people. Less

Think this has happened to me also. Passed assessment with the word ‘aced’ the assessment in my email and I will be put in a talent pool until a position becomes available. But surely that’s why I went through the whole interview process in the first place ? Who knows! Fingers crossed I guess Less

In a market where an apple costs 40 cents, a banana costs 60 cents, and a grapefruit costs 80 cents, how much would a pear cost?

3 Answers

My guess: 40 cents-vowels cost 20 cents. 2 vowels x 20 cents

The $0.20 a vowel theory seems credible, but the question is set up as a word problem, not a logic or maths problem, so it is unfair for them to expect this answer. If the problem had stated: "If APPLE = $0.40 and BANANA = $0.60, then what does GRAPEFRUIT equal?", then the question would be more viable. Otherwise, what the hell has the price of an apple to do with the price of a banana; it's like comparing apples to oranges ; ) Less

How would you troubleshoot an unresponsive user interface monitor using a multipage schematic?

3 Answers

Using the schematics that are provided, I would, first, see if the monitor is getting power at a sufficient amount. Then I would measure the Voltage from the power source to the power entrance of the monitor and then work on narrowing the search down to a component or group of components of that is what’s necessary. Less

Font type was too small for most people my age to read. Good reading glasses might have saved the day because I was able to answer well once I finally located the "monitor" in the schematic. Less

I applied at esi and was making $60k a year. Left to stay closer to home - approched 60% travel - worked at semiconductor plant for 4 years - 're-appplied at former manager's request, but offer was $15k less than when I left and they needed experienced help that could hit the ground running. Perfect fit Right? Wrong. Everyone wanted me, but no-one in HR understood "Experiance" . The went with a rookie and it cost them. LOL Big Time. Less


implement a method that given a sorted array with negative and positive values, find a value that is equal to its index. for example: [1, 2, 4, 5, 4] => will return 4. Do it with better complexity than O(n).

3 Answers

you should run binary search on that array because its already sorted. Each time you devide your array into 2 sub elements, check if the middle element is equal to its index than return it, otherwise if the middle element is lower than its index => check the left sub element otherwise => check the right sub element Less

def element(x): for x in range (0,len(array)): if array{x} = x : return x print(element(x)) Less

y=[1,2,3,5,4] def element(y): for x in range (0,len(y)): if y[x] ==x : return x print(element(y)) Less
