## The Love-Letter Mystery

James found a love letter that his friend Harry has written to his girlfriend. James is a prankster, so he decides to meddle with the letter. He changes all the words in the letter into palindromes. To do this, he follows two rules: 1. He can only reduce the value of a letter by 1, i.e. he can change d to c, but he cannot change c to d or d to b. 2. The letter a may not be reduced any further. Each reduction in the value of any letter is counted as a single operation. Find the minimum

## Palindrome Index

Given a string of lowercase letters in the range ascii[a-z], determine the index of a character that can be removed to make the string a palindrome. There may be more than one solution, but any will do. If the word is already a palindrome or there is no solution, return -1. Otherwise, return the index of a character to remove. Example s = "bcbc" Either remove 'b' at index 0 or 'c' at index 3. Function Description Complete the palindromeIndex function in the editor below. pali

## Anagram

Two words are anagrams of one another if their letters can be rearranged to form the other word. Given a string, split it into two contiguous substrings of equal length. Determine the minimum number of characters to change to make the two substrings into anagrams of one another. Example s = abccde Break s into two parts: 'abc' and 'cde'. Note that all letters have been used, the substrings are contiguous and their lengths are equal. Now you can change 'a' and 'b' in the first substri

## Making Anagrams

We consider two strings to be anagrams of each other if the first string's letters can be rearranged to form the second string. In other words, both strings must contain the same exact letters in the same exact frequency. For example, bacdc and dcbac are anagrams, but bacdc and dcbad are not. Alice is taking a cryptography class and finding anagrams to be very useful. She decides on an encryption scheme involving two large strings where encryption is dependent on the minimum number of charact

## Game of Thrones - I

Dothraki are planning an attack to usurp King Robert's throne. King Robert learns of this conspiracy from Raven and plans to lock the single door through which the enemy can enter his kingdom. But, to lock the door he needs a key that is an anagram of a palindrome. He starts to go through his box of strings, checking to see if they can be rearranged into a palindrome. Given a string, determine if it can be rearranged into a palindrome. Return the string YES or NO. Example s = 'aabbccdd'
