Daily Coding Problem Solution 5

This problem was asked by Jane Street. cons(a, b) constructs a pair, and car(pair) and cdr(pair) returns the first and last element of that pair. For example, car(cons(3, 4)) returns 3, and cdr(cons(3, 4)) returns 4. Given this implementation of cons: def cons(a, b): def pair(f): return f(a, b) return pair Implement car and cdr. I managed to get a solution from none other than a Python Core Developer, …

This problem was asked by Google. Given the root to a binary tree, implement serialize(root), which serializes the tree into a string, and deserialize(s), which deserializes the string back into the tree. For example, given the following Node class class Node: def __init__(self, val, left=None, right=None): self.val = val self.left = left self.right = right The following test should …
