They asked me to extract words from the parse tree. e.g. ((NJ (NN James) XX is) (AJ tall)) -> James is tall. Another question is to reverse a string an capitalize all the starting positions of words and lower case all the ending positions of words. e.g. Hello World -> Dlrow Olleh

def reveseCapitalize(s): s = s.lower() s = s[::-1] s = s.title() return s print(reveseCapitalize('Hello World')) Less

Populate an array of numbers from 1 to N (inclusive). Given two numbers, p and q , if a number in the array is divisible by p print OUT, if a number is divisible by q print THINK. If number is divisible by both p and q, print OUTTHINK. Otherwise, print the number.

seems like a variation of fizzbuzz. Should not be difficult.

"#Python Solution from array import * def problem_1(N,p,q): array_1 = array( 'i', range(1,N+1)) for n in array_1: if n % p == 0: print 'OUT' elif n % q == 0: print 'THINK' elif n % p == 0 and n % q==0: print 'OUTTHINK' else: print n problem_1(20,6,8)" Doent't work, think how an else-if sentence is used in compilation :) Less

the second one is certainly fizzbuzz, you were overthinking.

Hey, I just recently accepted there offer and was wondering how long did the background check link take. It's been around 2 weeks. Less

In my case the background check took 3 weeks after which the company reviews the background check report before they give you the drug test. It has been 3 weeks since the report was ready but the company is taking their own time to review the report. Even my starting date got delayed. Less

That is long and I'm here still waiting for the background check link, did you have to do something or they just send you the link? what I'm asking is how long did it take to get the email from HireRight. thank you for your reply. Less
