Then a man pointing to a photo says he is the son of my grandmothers՚son like that.

Section IV: Programming-C & DFS OR VB-40 Qstns.

30 Mins.

U can choose either C & DFS paper or VB paper. I chose C & DFS. This was the toughest part bcoz qstns. Were lengthy & time was very short. Both C & DFS qstns. Were almost equal. Most of the C qstns. Were asking about the output of the given code. The DFS qstns. Were about link list, array, queue & also the graph theory. This section demands a thorough preparation of C & DFS

& Graph theory.
