4 Let us have a (2,4) tree ADT in parenthetic string representation T={12}({3,6,9},{15}). External nodes are not included in this representation. Determine the correct/incorrect resulting (2,4) tree after applying the corresponding operation.
(yes) insertItem(1) - T={12,6}({1,3},{9},{15})

5 Let us have a red-black tree ADT in parenthetic string representation, where black nodes are bold, and red nodes are italic. External nodes are not included in this representation. Determine the correct/incorrect resulting red-black tree after applying the corresponding operation.
(yes) 6(8) - insertItem(7) - 7(6,8)
(no) 6(8) - insertItem(9) - 6(8,9)

6 A simple open addressing strategy for collision handling in hash tables is linear probing. Let us have a bucket array A = {35,14,D,21,E,12,E} with capacity N = 7, where E means "empty" and D means "deattached" (or "available") item. The hash function is h(k) = k mod 7. Find the correct/incorrect correspondence, where -> means "is equivalent to".
(yes) insrtItem(7) -> A[2] = 7
(no) insrtItem(38) -> A[3] = 38

7 Let us have a binary tree ADT in parenthetic string representation a(b(c(d,e),f),g(h,i(j(k,l),m)). Is the given sequence a part of the sequence of nodes, obtained in Euler tour traversal of this binary tree?
(yes) abcd
(no) ecbc

8 Create a binary tree representation of the following arithmetic expression: (x + 2*(y - 2)) / 2. Is the given sequence a part of the sequence of nodes, obtained in preorder traversal of this binary tree?
(yes) / + x
(no) x * y

9 Let us have a stack ADT S = (5,3,4,9). The top element is 5. For a stack operation, determine its return value and its effect on S.
(yes) push(1)
- NONE - S = (1,5,3,4,9)
(no) push(10) - NONE - S=(5,3,4,9,10)

10 Let us have a queue ADT Q = (8,7,2). The front element is 8. For a queue operation, determine its return value and its effect on Q.
(yes) enqueue(5) - NONE - Q=(8,7,2,5)
(no) enqueue(7) - 7 - Q=(8,7,2,7)

11 Let us have a deque ADT D = (8,1,3). The front element is 8. For a deque operation, determine its return value and its effect on D.
(yes) insertFirst(5) - NONE -
D = (5,8,1,3)
(no) size() - 2 -
D = (1,3)

12 Let us have an AVL tree ADT in parenthetic string representation 44(17(-,32),78(50(48,62),88)). External nodes are not included in this representation. Determine the correct/incorrect resulting AVL tree after applying the corresponding operation.
(yes) insertItem(54) 44(17(-,32),62(50(48,54),78(-,88)))
(no) insertItem(54) 44(17(54,32),78(50(48,62),88))

13 Let us have a binary tree in parenthetic string representation. Is the given sequence a part of the sequence of nodes, obtained in inorder traversal of this binary tree?
(yes) c(b(a,d),e); bdc
(no) d(e,c(g,a(f,b))); cfb

14 Create a binary tree representation of the given arithmetic expression and check that the sequence x2y is a part of the postorder traversal.
(yes) (x+2*(y-2))/2
(no) (x-2)*y

15 Class BinarySearchTree contains the following member function (Code Fragment 9.3):

void setItem(const BTPosition& p,
const BSTItem& i) const
{
/*add*/
p.element().setKey(i.key());
p.element().setElement(i.element());
}

Mark the correct/incorrect assertions about this function.
(yes) This function places an Item of BST (dictionary) at position
p in a LinkedBinaryTree.
(no)  Replacing
/*add*/ with Item<Key, Element> ii = i; is  a syntax error.

16 Class Position is included in the definition of class BinarySearchTree (Code Fragment 9.2). Mark the correct/incorrect assertions about the member function
Element& element()
{
return btPos.element().element();
}

in the
class Position.
(yes) The return value is a reference to a data member of
Item object.
(no) btPos is a data member in BinarySearchTree class.

17 Mark the correct/incorrect definitions and assertions about linear data structures.
(yes) A linear sequence that support access to its elements by their ranges is called a vector.

(no) A linear sequence that support access to its elements by their positions is called a vector.

18 Mark the correct/incorrect definitions and assertions about trees.
(yes) A node is internal if it has one or more children.
(no) A node is internal if it has no children.

19 We have the following code fragment:
void fun1()
{ throw runtime_error("ERR" ); }
void fun2() throw(runtime_error)
{ ... }
void fun3() throw(runtime_error)
{ fun2(); }
int main()
{ try
{ fun3(); }
catch (runtime_error e)
{
cout << e.what();
}
return 0;
}

Replacing
... with the given below statement, does the message ERR appear on the screen?
(yer)
fun1();
(no)
fun2();

20 Mark the correct/incorrect definitions and assertions about trees.
(yes) If node u is the parent of node v, we say that v is a child of u.
(no)  A binary tree is a tree in which every node has two children.
