Company: sapient

1) Write a program for the problem: the array of integers indicating the marks of the students is given, U have to calculate the percentile of the students according to this rule: the percentile of a student is the %of no of student having marks less then him. For eg: suppose
Student Marks
A 12
B 60
C 80
D 71
E 30
F 45

percentile of C = 5/5 *100 = 100 (out of 5 students 5 are having marks less then him)
percentile of B = 3/5*100 = 60% (out of 5, 3 have marks less then him)
percentile of A = 0/5*100 = 0%.

2) The code was given for a problem and u have to identify the logical error in it. That was simple. The code was to merge the Danagrams of 2 words. The danagram of a word is the letters of word arranfed in sequential order. eg danagram of abhinav is aabhinv. merging of danamagram is to merge the danagrams of 2 or more words such that the highest no of occurance are coming for each alphabet. eg merging of aabhinv and abbhhixz is abbhhinvxz.
