Using this method, implement a a new method that returns a random integer in the range 1-7 uniformly, i.e. Rand7(). Basically this is Rejection Sampling Algorithm. See http://leetcode.com/2010/11/rejection-sampling.html2 AnswersNo need for sort in array question as it will increase running time to O(2log2) not good. Instead... Set largest to first element Set second largest to largest Loop over every element, if current value greater than largest then set second largest to largest and then set largest to current value else if value greater than second largest set second largest to value continue loop return second largest/* following is based on the link provided in the interview question above */ int Rand7() { int[] arr = new int[21] {1..21}; int idx = int.MaxValue; do { idx = (Rand5() - 1) * 10 + Rand5() -1; if(idx20) }

 The hardest answer they asked me is the next one: If you are writing an automated test for a set-top-box, how would you check that there's video being shown on the screen?2 AnswersThere are different approaches. A few years ago, a good answer would have been to add a manual step, prompting a user to check that there's video being displayed. Nowadays, there exist video-capture devices that can be plugged between a device and the screen, and then to a PC. Some of these are used by gamers to record themselves playing games on the XBox, Play Station, etc. Some of the brand that manufacture this kind of devices would be: Vidiu, Blackmagic, Hauppauge, etc The hardest part would be to retrieve that video from the capture device and process it in order to tell what's inside that picture.A video server and a check for moving video!
