 Q2. How many threads can access a concurrent hashmap when the hashcode is overridden and always returns a zero.Data Structure2019-11-05 15:31:22

Ans. The impact of both cases (fixed hashcode or random hashcode for keys) will have same result and that is "unexpected behavior". The very basic need of hashcode in HashMap is to identify the bucket location where to put the key-value pair, and from where it has to be retrieved.

If the hashcode of key object changes every time, the exact location of key-value pair will be calculated different, every time. This way, one object stored in HashMap will be lost forever and there will be very minimum possibility to get it back from map.

For this same reason, key are suggested to be immutable, so that they return a unique and same hashcode each time requested on same key object.

 Q14. Detect a loop in a linked listData Structure2018-11-14 12:48:43

Ans. Work with two pointers on the linked list - a slow pointer (increments by one node) and a fast pointer (increments by two nodes). If both of these pointers meet at the same node, then there is a cycle in the linked list. Otherwise, no cycle.

 Q23. Why does an array need continuous memory locations and not Linked List ?Data Structure2018-06-11 09:21:56

Ans. Array needs continuous memory location because it need to provide random access of it's elements which is not required for Linked List.

Array index acts as an offset from the base address and hence can retrieve the respective element using the expression Base Address + ( Index * Element Size ). This expression could only hold true if the elements are in continuous memory location.

 Q24. Why does an array index starts at 0 and not 1 ?Data Structure2018-06-11 08:41:24

Ans. The array index starts with 0 because program locates an element using the expression ( BaseAddress + ( Index * size of array Element ), where index is used as an offset. As the starting address is actually the address of first element, the index of first element is used as 0 and so on.
