Points off 1 2 3 4 5 6 Total off Net Score CS 307 – Midterm 2 – Spring 2003 Name____________________________________ Last 4 digits of SSN / Student ID ______________ Section Leader's Name ___________________________ Instructions: 1. There are 4 questions on this test. 2. You have 2 hours to complete the test. 3. You may not use a calculator on the test. 4. When code is required, write Java code. 5. The style guide is not in effect except where noted. 6. Efficiency is not graded except where noted. 7. Ensure your answers are legible. 8. When writing code you may not use any methods or classes from the Java Standard Library except as noted and the System.out.print, System.out.println, and the equals method. 1. (2 points each, 30 points total) Short answer. If an error would occur answer "syntax error" or "runtime error" depending on what type of error it would be. Recall that when asked for Big O your answer should be the most precise Big O function. For example Selection Sort has an average case Big O of O(N^2), but per the formal definition of Big O it is technically correct to say Selection Sort also has a Big O of O(N^3). On this test I want the most precise Big O function. (Closest without going under.) A. A method has a Big O of (N^2). It takes 20 seconds for this method to complete when working with a data set of 2000 elements. (N = 2000). What is the predicted time for the method to complete when the data set has 4000 elements? _____________________________________________________________________________ CS 307 – Midterm 2 – Spring 2003 1

A method has a Big O of (N^3). It takes 15 seconds for this method to complete when working with a data set of 1000 elements. (N = 1000). What is the predicted time for the method to complete when the data set has 4000 elements? C. A programmer claims to have developed a sort that is sub-quadratic . (Performs in a Big O of less than O(N^2). If the average case Big O for an algorithm is O(N^1.25), then the algorithm's Big O is less than O(N^2) and it is a sub-quadratic algorithm.) It takes 5 seconds to sort a data set of 1000 items, 15 seconds to sort a data set of 2000 items, and 45 seconds to sort a data set of 4000 items. Does the data support the programmer's claim? Why or why not? _____________________________________________________________________________ D. What is the average case Big O for replacing an item in a List when the internal storage container is an array of Objects? /* pre: 0 <= location < getSize() post: get(location) == el */ public void replace(Object el, int location) _____________________________________________________________________________ E. What is the average case Big O for replacing (same method as part D.) an item in a List when the internal storage container is a linked list? _____________________________________________________________________________ CS 307 – Midterm 2 – Spring 2003
