**Important Questions for Class 12 Computer Science (Python) – Lists Manipulation and Implementation**

**TOPIC-1**

**Data Structures**

**Short Answer Type Questions** **(2 marks)**

**Question 1:**

Define a data structure.

**Answer:**

A data structure is a group of data which can be processed as a single unit. This group of data may be of similar or dissimilar data types. Data Structures are very useful while programming because they allow processing of the entire group of data as a single unit.

**Question 2:**

Name the two types of data structures and give difference between them.

**Answer:**

Data structures are of two types: Linear and Non – Linear.

- In a linear data structure, the elements are stored in a sequential order.
- In a non linear data structure, no sequential order is followed.
- Linear Data Structure Examples: Arrays: Non-Linear Data Structure Examples: Tree, graph lists, stacks, queues, linked lists.

**Question 3:**

Give difference between an array and a list in Python.

**Answer:**

An array is defined as a set of contiguous data of similar data type. Python lists are actually arrays of variable length. The elements of a list are of eterogeneous types which means they are of different data types.

**Question 4:**

How are lists implemented in memory?

**(or)**

How is memory allocated to a list in Python?

**Answer:**

A list in Python is an array that contains elements (pointers to objects) of a specific size only and this is a common feature of all dynamically typed languages. For implementation of a list, a contiguous array of references to other objects is used. Python keeps a pointer to this array and the array’s length is stored in a list head structure. This makes indexing of a list independent of the size of the list or the value of the index. When items are appended or inserted, the array of references is resized.

**Question 5:**

What is sequential allocation of memory? Why do we say that lists are stored sequentially?

**Answer:**

A list is a allocated memory in sequential manner. This means that the elements of the list are stored in memory in sequence of their declaration. So, if you want to view the fifth element of the list, you have to first traverse through first four elements of the list. This is called sequential allocation of memory.

**TOPIC-2**

**Searching Lists**

**Short Answer Type Questions-I (2 marks)**

**Question 1:**

How is linear search different from binary search?

**Answer:**

- Binary search requires the input data to be sorted near search doesn’t.
- Binary search requires an ordering comparison; linear search only requires equality comparisons
- Binary search has complexity 0(log n); linear search has complexity O(n) as discussed earlier.
- Binary search requires random access to the data; linear search only requires sequential access (this can be very important – it means a linear search can stream data of arbitrary size).

**Short Answer Type Questions-II (2 marks)**

**Question 1:**

Accept a list containing integers randomly. Accept any number and display the position at which the number is found in the list.

**Answer:**

maxrange = input(“Enter Count of numbers: ’’)

marks=[]

flag=False

for i in range(0, maxrange):

marks. append(input(“ ?”))

number = inputfEnter number to be searched”)

for i in range(0, maxrange):

if marks [i]==number:

print number,“found at position”,i

flag=True

if flag==False:

print number, “not found in list”

**Question 2:**

What will be the status of the following list after the First, Second and Third pass of the slection sort method used for arranging the following elements in descending order?

**Note :** Show the status of all the elements after each pass very clearly underlining the changes.

12,14, -54,64,90,24

**Answer:**

**Question 3:**

For a given list of values in descending order, write a method in Python to search for a value with the help of Binary search method. The method should return position of the value and should return -1 if the value not present in the list.

**Answer:**

def binarysrch (nums, x):

high=len (nums)

low=0

while low < high:

mid=(low+high)/2

midval=nums [mid]

if midval > x:

low = mid + 1

elif midval < x:

high = mid

else:

return mid

return -1

**TOPIC-3**

**List Sorting**

**Short Answer Type Questions-I (2 marks)**

**Question 1:**

What is bubble sort?

**Answer:**

Bubble sort is a simple sorting algorithm that works by repeatedly stepping through the list to be sorted, comparing each pair of adjacent items and swapping them if they are in the wrong order. The pass through the list is repeated until no swaps are needed, which indicates that the list is sorted. The algorithm gets its name from the way smaller elements “bubble” to the top of the list. Because it only uses comparisons to operate on elements, it is also Called a comparison sort.

**Question 2:**

Write an algorithm for selection sort.

**Answer:**

Selection sort performs the following steps:

- Starting at index 0, search the entire array to find the next smallest or largest value.
- Swap the smallest or largest value found with the value at index 0.
- Repeat steps 1 & 2 starting from the next index.

**Question 3:**

Explain insertion sort.

**Answer:**

Every repetition of insertion sort removes an element from the input data, inserting it into the correct position in the already-sorted list, until no input elements remain. The choice of which element to remove from the input is arbitrary and can be made using almost any choice algorithm.

**Short Answer Type Questions-II (2 marks)**

**Question 1:**

Write a function that takes a list that is sorted in ascending order and a number as argument. The function should do the following:

- Insert the number passed as argument in a sorted list.
- Delete the number from the list.

**Answer:**

from bisect import bisect

def listfunc(sortedlist,number) :

insert_point = bisect (sortedlist, number)

sortedlist.insert(insert_point,number)

print “List after Insertion”

print sortedlist

sortedlist.remove(number)

print “List after Deletion”

print sortedlist

maxrange = inputfEnter Count of numbers: ”)

numlist=[]

flag=False

for i in range(0, maxrange):

numlist.append(input(“ ?”))

numlist.sort()

number = inputfEnter the number”)

listfunc(numlist,number)

**Question 2:**

Consider the following list 95 79 19 43 52 3

[19, 43,52,3,79, 95]-Pass 2

[19,43,3, 52, 79, 95]-Pass 3

**Question 3:**

Write a function that takes a sorted list and a number as an argument. Search for the number in the sorted list using binary search.

**Answer:**

def binary_search(SORTEDLIST, number):

low=0

high=len(SORTEDLIST)

found=False

while(low<high) and found==False:

mid=(int) (low+high/2)

if SORTEDLIST[mid]==number:

print “Number found at”,mid

found=True

break

elif SORTEDLIST[mid]<number:

low=mid+1

else:

high=mid-1

if low >= high:

print “Number not found”

maxrange = inputfEnter Count of numbers: ”)

**TOPIC-4**

**Stacks And Queues With Lists**

**Very Short Answer Type Questions (1 mark)**

**Question 1:**

Expand the following:

- LIFO
- FIFO

**Answer:**

- LIFO: Last-In First-Out
- FIFO: First-In First-Out

**Question 2:**

Define stack.

**Answer:**

A stack is a data structure that allows adding and removing elements in a particular order. Every time an element is added, it goes on the top of the stack; the only element that can be removed is the element that was at the top of the stack.

**Question 3:**

Define Queue.

**Answer:**

Queue is a first-in, first-out (FIFO) data structure, i.e. the element added first to the queue will be the one to be removed first. Elements are always added to the rear of the queue and removed from the front of the queue.

**Question 4:**

Write all the operations possible in data structure.

**Answer:**

The major operations are:

- Traversal
- Insertion
- Deletion
- Searching

**Question 5:**

What are the two major queue operations?

**Answer:**

Addition of element is known as INSERT operation, also known as enqueuing. It is done using rear terminal position, i.e. tail end. Removal of element is known as DELETE operation, also known as dequeueing.

- Stop

**Question 2:**

Write an algorithm to implement pop operation.

**Answer:**

- Start
- If the value of top is -1 go to step 3 else go to step 4
- Print “Stack Empty” and go to step 7
- Deleted item = Stack[top]
- Decrement top by 1
- print “Item Deleted”
- Stop

**Question 3:**

Write an algorithm to implement insertion opera¬tion of queue.

**Answer:**

- Start

- if both the values are -1, then FRONT and REAR are incremented by 1
- other wise Rear is incremented by one.

- queue [Rear]=new element.
- Stop

**Question 4:**

Write an algorithm to implement deletion operation of queue.

**Answer:**

- Start
- Check for underflow situation by checking value of Front=-1
- If it is display appropriate message and stop

- Print “Item Deleted”
- Stop

**Question 5:**

For a given list of values in ascending order, write a method in Python to search for a value with the help of Binary Search method. The method should return position of the value and should return -1 if the value not present in the list.

lower_bound=0

upper_bond=len(list) -1

found=false

pos=’x’

while lower_bound< =upper_bond:

middle_pos=(lower_bound + upper_bond)/2

if list [middle_pos] = = search:

pos=middlepos found=True break

elif search < list [middle_pos]:

**Question 7:**

What are the applications of queue in computer?

**Answer:**

In a single processor multitasking computer, job(s) wait to be processed form a queue. Same happens when we share a printer with many computers.

- Compiling a HLL code.
- Using download manager, for multiple files also uses queue for ordering the files.
- In multiuser OS – job scheduling is done through queue.

**Answer:**

**Question 10:**

Give few applications of stack.

**Answer:**

- Expression evaluation
- Backtracking (game playing, finding paths, exhaustive searching).
- Memory management, run-time environment for nested language features.

**Short Answer Type Questions-II (2 marks)**

**Question 1:**

Write an algorithm to evaluate postfix expression.

**Answer:**

**Step 1**: Start

**Step 2:** Check all symbols from left to right and repeat steps 3 & 4 for each symbol of expression ‘E’ until all symbols are over.

- If the symbol is an operand, push it onto stack.
- If the symbol is an operator then:
- Pop the top two operands from stack and apply an operator in between them.
- Evaluate the expression and place the result back on the stack.

**Step 3:** Set result equal to top element on the stack.

**Step 4:** Stop

**Question 2:**

Write an algorithm to convert infix to postfix.

**Answer:**

- Create an empty stack and an empty postfix output string/stream.
- Scan the infix input string/stream left to right.
- If the current input token is an operand, simply append it to the output string (note the examples above that the operands remain in the same order).
- If the current input token is an operator, pop off all operators that have equal or higher precedence and append them to the output string; push the operator onto the stack. The order of popping is the order in the output.
- If the current input token is push it onto the stack.
- If the current input token is ‘)’, pop off all operators and append them to the output string until a ‘(‘ is popped; discard the ‘(‘.
- If the end of the input string is found, pop all operators and append them to the output string.
