There are totally 5 sections in the qp and each

NO. of questions = 40
Time = 60 min
Negative marking = 0.25 for each wrong answer
SECTION 1(try this at last because it is very tough and time consuming) L1,
L2 - lists
M(L1,L2) = L1 + L2
If , L = (a,b,c)
A(L) = a (first term); B(L) = (b,c) (except the first
I] P(L) = L if L=( ), & B(L)=()
P(L) = A(B(L)) if L <> ( ), and B(L)<>( ) B(B(L))=( )
P(L) = M(A(L)), M(A(B(L)), P(B(B(L))) if B(B(L) <>C)

With the above instructions, find the following using
1. R(P(L)) where L=(a,b,(a,b),(b,a))
2. R(P(L)) where L=(a,(a),(b,b),b)
So, third condition is applicable
So, P(L)=M(a,M(b,P((a,b),(b,a))) find this using the
same rule and

letters are also to
be changed. given letters series like [also few
LET QUESTION IS ABBAAB
If we apply 25 on this it means we have to

at positions 2 and 5, and we have to change the
adjacent letters 2 and 5
from A to B and B to A.
That is q's A B B A A B
after Step 1 i.e interchange 2 and 5.
now change adjacent elements of 2 and 5...finally

1. Given the function f(n a b c ) = ac if n=1
f(n a b c) = f( n-1 a b c) + f( 1 a b c) + f( n-1 b a
if n > 1
f( 2) = ?
Ans: f( 2 a c b ) = ab + ac + bc.
2. similar question in functions.
3. [ based on function in 1.] f( 4 a b c ) the number
of terms is...?
Ans: f( 4 a b c ) = f( 3 a c b ) + f( 1 a b c ) + f(
3 b a c ) etc.
= 5ab + 5ac + 5bc.
4. f( 5 a b c ) = ?
