## Zoho Interview Coding Questions

For freshers, they mostly ask programming questions based on an array, string, and Linked lists. To crack this round, check data structure and interview coding questions. Practicing these coding questions helped me to crack this round.

### Coding Question 1: Based on String

`Input: a1b2c3Output: abbcccCaution: Don't use inbuilt functions`

Watch this video for a complete explanation. I have solved this problem and explained it in detail.

Explanation:

• After we have the number 1 so `a` repeats one time = `a`
• After b we have the number 2 so it repeats two times = `bb`
• After c we have the number 3 so it repeats three times = `ccc`
• Final Output: `abbccc`

Algorithm:

• Start the Program
• Get the input as a single string
• Loop through the entire string to find the numbers
• After finding the number, Repeat the previous character the same number of times
• For example a4 ( So you find the number 4 and print `a` 4 times)
• Follow step 3,4 for the entire string
• End the Program

#### C Program

Prerequisite:

Code:

```#include <stdio.h>
int main()
{
char str[100]="a1b2c4";
int len=0;

while(str[length]!='\0')
len++;

for(int i=0; i<len; i++)
{
if(str[i]>'0' && str[i]<'9')
{
int num=str[i]-'0';
for(int j=0; j < num; j++)
{
printf("%c", str[i-1]);
}
}
}

}```

Output:

`abbcccc`

#### Python Program

If you know the Python basic syntax, you can implement the same program in Python in very few lines of code. That’s the beauty of Python programming.

Prerequisite:

Code:

```msg="a1b2c4"
out = ""

for ind in range(0, len(msg), 2):
out += (msg[ind] * int(msg[ind+1]))

print(out)```

Output:

`abbcccc`

### Coding Question 2: Based on the Array

```Input: [2,1,0,-8,-9]
Output: 0.4 , 0.2 , 0.4```

Explanation:

• First, find the total number of elements in the array = 5
• Find the total number of positive numbers=2
• Find the total number of neutral numbers=1
(0 is the only neutral number)
• Find the total number of negative numbers=2
• Output = [ (no of positive number/length of the array), (no of neutral numbers/length of the array), (no of negative numbers/length of the array) ]
=[â…–, â…•, â…–]
=[0.4, 0.2, 0.4]

Algorithm:

1. Start the Program
2. Get the input as an array
3. Find the length of the array
4. Find the number of positive, neutral, and negative numbers
5. Divide each one of the above results with the length of the array and print the output as an array( Make sure you print the output in float format and use 0.1f for one precision)
6. Stop the program

#### C Program

Here we are using sizeof() operator.

```#include<stdio.h>
int main()
{
int a[]={1,2,4,-8,-1,0};

int n=sizeof(a)/sizeof(int);
int np, nz, nn;
for(int i=0; i<n; i++)
{
if(a[i]>0)
{
np++;
}
else if(a[i]<0)
{
ne --;
}
else
{
nz++;
}
}
printf("%0.1f , %0.1f , %0.1f ", np/n, nz/n, nn/n);
return 0;
}```

Output:

`0.6 , 0.2, 0.4`

#### Python Program

Let’s solve the same question in Python programming.

```list_data =  [2,1,0,-8,-9]

count_positive = 0
count_neutral = 0
count_negative = 0
length_arr = len(list_data)

for val in list_data:
if val>0:
count_positive += 1
elif val<0:
count_negative += 1
else:
count_neutral += 1

print(
count_positive/length_arr,
count_neutral/length_arr,
count_negative/length_arr
)```

Output:

`0.4 0.2 0.4`

There can be multiple types of coding questions asked based on the string, array. If you get the basics, you can solve these coding challenges in C/C++, Java, Python, or any programming language of your choice.

Also, check the technical interview coding questions asked in Zoho for freshers (based on experience shared by the candidate).

If you have any questions, you can ask in the comment section.

1. Jonathan P B says:

Awesome

2. Abhimanyu says:

but on my side, the code is not accepting the error was showing in the for loop the error is they have do not declare for the int i and the statement missing.

3. Guna says:

Whether we can choose Python for the level 2 coding test or we must do it only in C?
I’m having my level2 coding test tomorrow pls help me out.

1. As per I know, you can choose the programming language of your choice. If the job requirement is for a specific programming language (let’s say Python) specialist, then it is recommended you use that language (Python) for competitive coding.

2. Mayank says:

Yes, I asked the interviewer shall I use java? He said NO. They only wanted to do in C.

4. Rathika E says:

Can I use Python in the 3rd level advanced programming round?

1. Charan says:

No you cant

5. Mandip says:

In case a13 means it prints a in 13 times but it won’t print 13. Bro help please.

1. SATHISH KUMAR S says:

I have code. If you want, please ping me or contact me @ .

1. Riebikshanaa M says:

I need coding questions with answers for Zoho preparation sir. Kindly share with me.

6. Yamuna says:

Can we use Python language coding for the 2022 batch passed outs in Zoho on-campus drive?

1. Yes, you can use any programming language unless they have not specified explicitly in their job description.

yes you can

3. Shaheen Ansari says:

Then in which language you gave the coding test.

7. Vanita P says:

Thank you for writing this.

8. Siva says:

For Zoho L2 and L3 tests they will watch the candidates or proctored?

9. riyaz says:

Hey Bro for 2nd program if the input is kinda like this “a10b20” how would you separate 10 and 20?

10. M.Harini says:

Sir, Zoho coding round is hard or easy for freshers?

1. Difficulty level is moderate. But again, it depends how you are prepared for the coding round.
