SECTION B Answer any two questions Each program should be written in such a way that it clearly depicts the logic of the problem. This can be achieved by using mnemonic names and comments in the program. ( Flowcharts and Algorithms are not required ) The programs must be written in Java. Question 7 [10] A class Composite contains a two dimensional array of order [m x n]. The maximum values possible for both m and n is 20. Design a class Composite to fill the array with the first (m x n) composite numbers in column wise. The details of the members of the class are given below: Class name : Composite Data members /instance variables : arr[ ][ ] : stores the composite numbers column wise m : integer to store the number of rows n : integer to store the number of columns Member functions : Composite(int mm, int nn ) : to initialize the size of the matrix m=mm and n=nn int isComposite( int p ) : returns 1 if number is composite otherwise returns 0. void fill ( ) : to fill the elements of the array with the first (m n) composite numbers in column wise void display( ) : displays the array in a matrix form. Specify the class Composite giving details of the constructor(int,int), int isComposite(int), void fill( ) and void display( ). Define a main( ) function to create an object and call the functions accordingly to enable the task. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------4 ISC SPECIMEN QUESTION PAPER 2016

Question 8 [10] Design a class Sort which enables a word to be arranged in alphabetical order. The details of the members of the class are given below : Class name : Sort Data members /instance variables: Str : stores a word len : to store the length of the word Member functions : Sort( ) : default constructor void readword( ) : to accept the word void arrange ( ) : to arrange the word in alphabetical order using any standard sorting technique. void display( ) : displays the original word along with the sorted word Specify the class Sort giving details of the constructor, void readword( ), void arrange( ), and void display( ). Define the main( ) function to create an object and call the functions accordingly to enable the task. Question 9 A Special number is a number in which the sum of the factorial of its digits is equal to the number. Example: 145 ( 1! + 4! + 5! = 145 ). Thus, 145 is a special number. Design a class Special to check if the given number is a Special number or not. Some of the members of the class are given below: Class name : [10] Special Data members /instance variables : n : integer to store the number Member functions : Special( ) : default constructor void read( ) : to accept the number int factorial(int x) : return the factorial of a number using recursion technique. boolean isSpecial( ) : checks for the special number by invoking the function factorial( ) and returns true if Special, otherwise returns false void display( ) : to show the result with an appropriate message. Specify the class Special, giving details of the Constructor, void read( ), int factorial(int), boolean isSpecial( ) and void display( ). Define the main() function to create an object and call the member function according to enable the task. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------5 ISC SPECIMEN QUESTION PAPER 2016

SECTION C Answer any two questions Each Program should be written in such a way that it clearly depicts the logic of the problem step wise. This can also be achieved by using comments in the program and mnemonic names or pseudo codes for algorithms. The program must be written in Java and the algorithms must be written in general / standard form, wherever required / specified. (Flowcharts are not required.) Question 10 [5] A super class Account contains employee details and a sub class Simple calculates the employee s simple interest. The details of the two classes are given below: Class name : Account Data Members: Name Pan Principal acc_no : : : : stores the employee name stores the employee PAN number stores the Principal amount (in decimals) stores the employee bank account number Account( . ) : void display( ) : parameterized constructor to assign value to data members to display the employee details Member functions: Class name Data Members: time rate interest : Simple : : : stores the time duration stores the rate of interest stores the simple interest Simple( . ) : void calculate( ) : parameterized constructor to assign value to data members of both the classes. calculates the simple interest as (Principal time rate) / 100 void display( ) : Member functions: displays the employee details along with the rate, time and interest. Assume that the super class Account has been defined. Using the concept of inheritance, specify the class Simple giving details of constructor, void calculate( ) and void display( ). The super class and the main function need not be written. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------6 ISC SPECIMEN QUESTION PAPER 2016

Question 11 [5] A dequeue enables the user to add and remove integers from both the ends i.e. front and rear. Define a class DeQueue with the following details: Class name : DeQueue Data Members: ele[ ] : array to hold the integer elements. cap : stores the maximum capacity of the array. front : to point the index of the front. rear : to point the index of the rear. DeQueue(int max) : constructor to initialize the data member cap = max, front = rear = 0 and create the integer array void pushfront(int v) : to add integers from the front index if possible else display the message( full from front ). int popfront( ) : to remove the return elements from front. If array is empty then return-999. void pushrear(int v) : to add integers from the front index if possible else display the message( full from rear ). int poprear( ) : to remove and return elements from rear. If the array is empty then return-999. Member functions: Specify the class DeQueue giving the details of ONLY the constructor(int), pushfront(int) and int poprear ( ). Assume that the other functions have been defined. void The main( ) function need not be written.
