This Python Algorithms Online Test
Separates Good From Bad Hires

Screen with work-sample questions

Work-samples are the best predictor of work performance. 8,000+ companies use TestDome premium questions.

About the test

The Python Algorithms online test assesses candidates' algorithmic-thinking skills and their ability to implement algorithms using Python.

It's an ideal test for pre-employment screening. A good developer will be able to design and implement algorithms that are both correct and efficient. Computational complexity is important not only when scaling applications but when creating responsive, maintainable, and efficient code.

This online test requires candidates to analyze or design an algorithm using Python as the programming language.

Sample public questions

A three-node binary tree.Binary search tree (BST) is a binary tree where the value of each node is larger or equal to the values in all the nodes in that node's left subtree and is smaller than the values in all the nodes in that node's right subtree.

Write a function that, efficiently with respect to time used, checks if a given binary search tree contains a given value.

For example, for the following tree:

  • n1 (Value: 1, Left: null, Right: null)
  • n2 (Value: 2, Left: n1, Right: n3)
  • n3 (Value: 3, Left: null, Right: null)

Call to contains(n2, 3) should return True since a tree with root at n2 contains number 3.

A playlist is considered a repeating playlist if any of the songs contain a reference to a previous song in the playlist. Otherwise, the playlist will end with the last song which points to None.

Implement a function is_repeating_playlist that, efficiently with respect to time used, returns true if a playlist is repeating or false if it is not.

For example, the following code prints "True" as both songs point to each other.

first = Song("Hello")
second = Song("Eye of the tiger")
    
first.next_song(second)
second.next_song(first)
    
print(first.is_repeating_playlist())
