Words Score Python

Problem Statement :

In this challenge, the task is to debug the existing code to successfully execute all provided test files.

Consider that vowels in the alphabet are a, e, i, o, u and y.

Function score_words takes a list of lowercase words as an argument and returns a score as follows:

The score of a single word is 2 if the word contains an even number of vowels. Otherwise, the score of this word is . The score for the whole list of words is the sum of scores of all words in the list.

Debug the given function score_words such that it returns a correct score.

Your function will be tested on several cases by the locked template code.

Input Format

The input is read by the provided locked code template. In the first line, there is a single integer  denoting the number of words. In the second line, there are n space-separated lowercase words.


1  <=   n   <=   20

Each word has at most 20 letters and all letters are English lowercase letters

Output Format

The output is produced by the provided and locked code template. It calls function score_words with the list of words read from the input as the argument and prints the returned score to the output.

Solution :


                            Solution in C :

def is_vowel(letter):
    return letter in ['a', 'e', 'i', 'o', 'u', 'y']

def score_words(words):
    score = 0
    for word in words:
        num_vowels = 0
        for letter in word:
            if is_vowel(letter):
                num_vowels += 1
        if num_vowels % 2 == 0:
            score += 2
            score += 1
    return score

Dynamic Array

Create a list, seqList, of n empty sequences, where each sequence is indexed from 0 to n-1. The elements within each of the n sequences also use 0-indexing. Create an integer, lastAnswer, and initialize it to 0. There are 2 types of queries that can be performed on the list of sequences: 1. Query: 1 x y a. Find the sequence, seq, at index ((x xor lastAnswer)%n) in seqList.

Left Rotation

A left rotation operation on an array of size n shifts each of the array's elements 1 unit to the left. Given an integer, d, rotate the array that many steps left and return the result. Example: d=2 arr=[1,2,3,4,5] After 2 rotations, arr'=[3,4,5,1,2]. Function Description: Complete the rotateLeft function in the editor below. rotateLeft has the following parameters: 1. int d

Sparse Arrays

There is a collection of input strings and a collection of query strings. For each query string, determine how many times it occurs in the list of input strings. Return an array of the results. Example: strings=['ab', 'ab', 'abc'] queries=['ab', 'abc', 'bc'] There are instances of 'ab', 1 of 'abc' and 0 of 'bc'. For each query, add an element to the return array, results=[2,1,0]. Fun

Array Manipulation

Starting with a 1-indexed array of zeros and a list of operations, for each operation add a value to each of the array element between two given indices, inclusive. Once all operations have been performed, return the maximum value in the array. Example: n=10 queries=[[1,5,3], [4,8,7], [6,9,1]] Queries are interpreted as follows: a b k 1 5 3 4 8 7 6 9 1 Add the valu

Insert a Node at the Tail of a Linked List

You are given the pointer to the head node of a linked list and an integer to add to the list. Create a new node with the given integer. Insert this node at the tail of the linked list and return the head node of the linked list formed after inserting this new node. The given head pointer may be null, meaning that the initial list is empty. Input Format: You have to complete the SinglyLink
