Q. 8 Explain Repeat-While structure.

Ans : The repeat-while loop has the form :

Repeat While condition :
[End of loop]

Here, body of loop i.e. module is executed repeatedly, unit the condition is satisfied.

Repeat-While flow chart

There must be a statement before the structure that initializes the condition controlling the loop and there must be a statement in the body of the loop that changes the condition.

For e.g. Find largest element in array.

Given a nonempty array DATA with N numerical values. This algorithm finds the location LOC and the value MAX of the largest element of DATA

1. Set K := 1, LOC := 1, MAX : = DATA[1]

2. Repeat step 3 and 4 while K <= N: 

3. If MAX < DATA [K], then:
	set LOC := K and
	set MAX := DATA[K]
  [End of If structure]

4. Set K := K +1
	[End of step 2 loop]

5. Write : LOC, MAX 

6. Exit 

Q.9 Explain with flowcharts the following control structures :

  Asked in Board Exam   (Mar. 2009,12; Oct. 2003, 04, 05,11,14)     Important  

(i) Sequence logic, (ii) Selection logic, (iii)Iteration logic

Ans :
(i) Sequence logic :
In the sequence logic modules are executed sequentially, one after the another. The sequence may be present explicitly by means of numbered step or by the order in which modules are written.

(ii) Selection logic :
Selection logic uses number of conditions, which cause selection of one out of several alternative modules.

(a) Single alternative :
If condition is satisfied then module A, which consists of number of statements, is executed. Otherwise module A is skipped and next module is executed.


(b) Double alternative :
If the condition is satisfied, then module A will be executed otherwise module B will be executed.

 Double alternative flow Chart

(c) Iteration logic
Here certain module is executé repeatedly until condition satisfies.
At first, the body of loop i.e. module will be executed with K=R and then with K = R + T, then with K = R + 2T and so on until K = S. The loop ends when K > S.

Iteration logic flow chart

Here module is executed until the condition is satisfied.

Q.11 What are linear arrays ?

  Asked in Board Exam   (Oct. 2006,13,14; Mar.2015)     Important  

Ans : A data structure is said to be linear if its elements form a sequence.
A linear array is the data structure which consists of finite, ordered set of homogeneous data elements such that :

1. The elements of the array are referenced respectively by an index set (subscript) consisting of ‘n’ consecutive numbers.

2. The elements of the array are stored respectively in successive memory locations.

3. The number ‘n’ of the elements is called length or size of array.

In general, the size or length of the array can be obtained from the index set by the formul:-

 Length = UB - LB +1 

where UB - the largest index called Upper Bound.
LB - the smallest index called Lower Bound.
e.g. Let DATA be 5 element linear array as follows :

Data for linear array | Data Structures Part - 2

The element of an array may be denoted by the subscript notation such that :
DATA [3] = 600
In C++, array is declared as -
int data [100]; which specify an array data of 100 integers.

Q. 12 How arrays are represented in memory ?

  Asked in Board Exam   (Oct.2014)     Important  

Ans :

i) The elements of linear array are stored in consecutive memory locations.

ii) Computer does not need to keep track of the address of every element of array. It just requires the address of first element of array, LA, denoted by Base (LA) and called the base address of linear array LA.

iii) Using this base address, the computer calculates address of any element of array by using the formula.

 LOC (LA[K]) = Base (LA) + W (K - LB) 


LOC (LA[K]) is address of Kth element of LA
W is number of words per memory location for LA
and LB is lower bound i.e, smallest index of LA.

iv) The memory representation of an array is shown in figure below :

Q. 13 Consider the array AUTO, which records number of automobiles from 1932 through,1984. Suppose Base (AUTO) = 200 and W = 4 words.
LOC (AUTO [1932]) = 200, LOC (AUTO [1933]) = 204
LOC (AUTO [1934]) = 208

Calculate address at which 1965's record is stored.

Ans :

Given:-    K = 1965
Base address = 200
           W = 4
          LB = 1932

The address of the array element for the year 1965 can be obtained -

LOC (AUTO [1965]) Base (AUTO) + W (1965 - LB)

200 + 4 (1965 - 1932) = 332

Q.14 What is traversing an array ? Give the algorithm for traversing a linear array?

  Asked in Board Exam   (Oct. 2005,12,15; March 2006)     Important  

Ans : Traversing an array means accessing with each element of array only at once, so that can be processed.

Algorithm : Traversing a linear array.

Here LA is a linear array with lower bound LB and upper bound UB. Following algorithm apply operation PROCESS to each element of LA.

Step 1: [Initialize counter]
	set K: = LB

Step 2: Repeat steps 3 and 4 while K <= UB :

Step 3: [Visit element]
	Apply PROCESS to LA[K]

Step 4: [Increment counter]
	set K := K + 1
	[End of step 2 loop]

Step 5: Exit
This algorithm traverses a linear array LA with lower bound LB and upper bound UB.

Step 1: Repeat FOR K= LB To UB:
Apply PROCESS to LA[K]
[End of loop]

Step 2: Exit 

Q. 15 What is inserting ? Write an algorithm for inserting an element to a linear array.

  Asked in Board Exam   (Mar. 2009,11,16) (Oct.2015)     Important  

Ans :
i) Inserting refers to the operation of adding an element to the existing elements of array.

ii) The element can be easily inserted at the end of array. But for insertion in the middle of array, it is required to move the elements of array one byte forward.

iii) The following algorithm inserts a data element ITEM into the kth position in an array LA with N elements.

Algorithm :

Here LA is a linear array with N elements and K is a positive integer, such that K <= N. This algorithm inserts an element ITEM at Kthposition in LA.

Step 1: [Initialize counter] 
	Set J: = N

Step 2: Repeat steps 3 and 4 while J >= K:

Step 3: [Move Jth element forward ]
	Set LA[J + 1]: = LA[J]

Step 4: [Decrement counter]
	Set J := J - 1
	[End of step 2 loop]

Step 5: [Insert the element]
        Set LA[K] := ITEM

Step 6: [Reset N]
	Set N := N + 1

Step 7: Exit
