Funny String

Problem Statement :

In this challenge, you will determine whether a string is funny or not. To determine whether a string is funny, create a copy of the string in reverse e.g. abc  ->  cab. Iterating through each string, compare the absolute difference in the ascii values of the characters at positions 0 and 1, 1 and 2 and so on to the end. If the list of absolute differences is the same for both strings, they are funny.

Determine whether a give string is funny. If it is, return Funny, otherwise return Not Funny.

Function Description

Complete the funnyString function in the editor below.

funnyString has the following parameter(s):

string s: a string to test


string: either Funny or Not Funny

Input Format

The first line contains an integer s, the number of queries.
The next q lines each contain a string, s.


1  <=  q  <=  10
2  <=  length of  s  <=  10000

                funny = 0;
        printf("%sFunny\n", funny ? "" : "Not ");
    return 0;

In   Python3  :

def isFunny(s):

    for case in range(num_cases):
        s = [ord(c) for c in input()];
        if isFunny(s): print("Funny")
        else: print("Not Funny");

Compare two linked lists

You’re given the pointer to the head nodes of two linked lists. Compare the data in the nodes of the linked lists to check if they are equal. If all data attributes are equal and the lists are the same length, return 1. Otherwise, return 0. Example: list1=1->2->3->Null list2=1->2->3->4->Null The two lists have equal data attributes for the first 3 nodes. list2 is longer, though, so the lis
