10.16. Multiple Choice Exercises¶
Answer the following Multiple Choice questions to assess what you have learned in this chapter.
vector<int> temps (24, 32.00);

We can’t declare the vector as an integer type because all temperature readings will be truncated.
vector<double> temps (24, 32.00);

First comes the vector size, then the initial values.
vector<double> temps (0.00, 24);

Freezing is 32 degrees fahrenheit. The order of parameters is incorrect.
vector<double> temps (32, 24.00);

This statement creates a vector size 32 with elements initialized to 24.00 degress fahrenheit.
Q1: Suppose you are collecting data for a science experiment. You are to perform three trials of eight temperature readings measured in degrees fahrenheit to the nearest hundredth and initialized to freezing. Choose the vector that has the proper amount of storage for this scenario.
nurse = lauren[4]

Vectors are zeroindexed, so the fifth element is the fourth index.
nurse = lauren[5]

Remember, vectors are zeroindexed!
nurse = lauren[6]

Remember, vectors are zeroindexed!
nurse = lauren(4)

This is not proper vector indexing.
nurse = lauren(5)

This is not proper vector indexing. Also, vectors are zeroindexed.
Q2: Suppose the following code is run:
vector<string> lauren = {"happy", "to", "you", "September", "birthday", "girl"}
How would you save the string "birthday"
from lauren
to the variable nurse
?
victors victors the victors valiant

Although this is the final version of
chant
, we are not printingchant
! error! we run into an error somewhere in the execution due to an out of bounds access.

Remember,
chant
at index 1 is no longer “hail”. v i c t o r s

You are thinking of the correct word but consider upto what index we print.
v i c t o

Correct! we print the first 5 letters of the string at index 1 which is “victors”.
Q3: What gets printed when the following code is run:
vector<string> chant = {"Hail", "to", "the", "victors", "valiant"};
chant[0]=chant[3];
chant[3]=chant[0];
chant[1]=chant[0];
for ( size_t i = 0; i < chant.size(); i++ ){
cout << chant[1][i] << " ";
}
vector<string> harry (lauren)

This syntax is correct, but isn’t used often.
vector<string> lauren (ella)

You make a copy of the vector in parentheses.
vector<string> lauren = mariah

Remember how assignment statements work!
vector<katie> string = lauren

This is not proper syntax.
vector<string> mariah = lauren

This is the most common syntax.
Q4: Select all of the following statments that correctly make a copy of lauren
.
vector<string> lauren = {"happy", "to", "you", "September", "birthday", "girl"}
How would you save the string "birthday"
from lauren
to the variable nurse
?
{0, 8, 5, 1, 4, 3}

nums
is modified inside of the loop. {0, 16, 10, 2, 8, 6}

Take a look at the conditional.
{0, 16, 8, 0, 8, 4}

Take a closer look at the conditional.
{2, 14, 10, 2, 6, 6}

All even numbers were decremeneted, then all numbers were multiplied by 2.
{2, 18, 10, 2, 10, 6}

Take a closer look at what happens inside of the conditional.
Q5: What is the value of nums after the following code executes?
int main () {
vector<int> nums = {0, 8, 5, 1, 4, 3};
for (int i = 0; i < 6; i++) {
if (nums[i] % 2 == 0) {
nums[i];
}
nums[i] = nums[i] * 2;
}
cout << nums[1];
}
for (int i = 0; i < ryan.size(); ++i) { cout << ryan[i] << " "; }

When we deal with the
size
function, we can’t use typeint
. for (size_t j = 0; j < ryan.size(); j++) { cout << ryan[j] << " "; }

When we deal with the
size
function, we must use typesize_t
. for (int k = 0; k < 8; ++k) { cout << ryan[k] << " "; }

There are 9 elements, numbered 0 through 8, but here we only iterate through 8 of them.
for (int n = 0; n < 9; n++) { cout << ryan[n] << " "; }

There are 9 elements numbered 0 through 8, and this statement iterates over all of them.
for (int m = 0; m <= 8; ++m) { cout << ryan[m] << " "; }

There are 9 elements numbered 0 through 8, and this statement iterates over all of them.
Q6: Multiple Response Select all ways to print out the contents of ryan
without
going out of bounds.
vector<int> ryan = {2, 3, 1, 5, 6, 0, 0, 5, 4};
Use
push_back
4 times with no arguments to get rid of the last 4 elements, then usepush_back
3 times with arguments to specify which values you want to add to the end.
You’ll need to use two different functions to accomplish this task.
Use
push_back
4 times with no arguments to get rid of the last 4 elements, then usepop_back
3 times with arguments to specify which values you want to add to the end.
push_back
pushes new items onto the end of the vector, andpop_back
pops old items off the end of the vector. Use
pop_back
4 times with no arguments to get rid of the last 4 elements, then usepop_back
3 times with arguments to specify which values you want to add to the end.
You’ll need to use two different functions to accomplish this task.
Use
pop_back
4 times with no arguments to get rid of the last 4 elements, then usepush_back
3 times with arguments to specify which values you want to add to the end.
T``push_back`` pushes new items onto the end of the vector, and
pop_back
pops old items off the end of the vector.
Q7: Suppose you want ryan
to have the value
vector<int> ryan = {2, 3, 1, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9};
What vector functions will you use to achieve this, and how many times will you use them?
Keep in mind, ryan
is currently the following vector of integers.
vector<int> ryan = {2, 3, 1, 5, 6, 0, 0, 5, 4};
int y = x % 7; y = y + 1;

The first part creates a random number between 0 and 7 (8 numbers) and the second part adds 1 so that our random number is actually between 1 and 8.
int y = x % 8; y = y + 1;

The first part creates a random number between 0 and 8 (9 numbers). This is too many.
int y = x % 7;

This creates a random number between 0 and 7 (8 numbers), which are not the numbers we are looking for.
int y = x % 8;

The first part creates a random number between 0 and 8 (9 numbers). This is too many, and not the numbers we are looking for.
Q8: Suppose you are randomly assigning students to discussions 18. How would you do this correctly? Assume you have alreay implemented the following code.
int x = random ();
1

14 is 7 * 2. Don’t forget about the other multiples of 7 and 2.
2

See if you can find the other multiples of 7 and 2.
3

See if you can find the other multiples of 7 and 2.
4

See if you can find the other multiples of 7 and 2.
5

14, 28, 42, 70, and 98 are all multiples of 7 and 2 and are counted by
fizzBuzz
.
Q9: Suppose you have defined the fizzBuzz
function as the following
int fizzBuzz (const vector<int> & vec, int num1, int num2) {
int count = 0;
for (size_t i = 0; i < vec.size(); i++) {
if (vec[i]/num1 == 0 && vec[i]/num2 == 0) {
count++;
}
}
return count;
}
What would be printed in the following case?
vector<int> numbers = {6, 8, 14, 21, 28, 35, 36, 42, 49, 70, 81, 98};
cout << fizzBuzz(numbers, 2, 7);
1

names
begin with"M"
? 2

The function is counting how many last names begin with
"M"
. 3

Is the function counting how many first
names
begin with"M"
? 4

Is the function counting how many elements in
names
contain"M"
? 5

Q10: Suppose you have defined the startsWith
function as the following
int startsWith (const vector<string> & vec, char c) {
int count = 0;
int pos = 0;
for (size_t i = 0; i < vec.size(); i++) {
pos = vec[i].find(" ");
if (vec[i][pos + 1] == c) {
count++;
}
}
return count;
}
What would be printed in the following case?
vector<string> names = {"Ross Meldrum", "Monica Morrissey", "Maria Geller", "Marty Bing"};
cout << howMany(names, 'M');
{1, 6, 2, 6, 2}

What is being counted in
counts
? {1, 4, 1, 3, 1}

counts
isn’t a count of how many words each vowel appers in insidesnacks
. {1, 6, 1, 4, 1}

counts
contains a count of how many times each vowel appers insnacks
. {1, 6, 2, 3, 2}

What is being counted in
counts
? Error!

There isn’t anything wrong with the code that would cause an error.
Q11: Suppose you have defined the howMany
function as the following
int howMany (const vector<string>& vec, char let) {
int count = 0;
for (size_t i = 0; i < vec.size(); i++) {
for (size_t c = 0; c < vec[i].size(); c++) {
if (vec[i][c] == let) {
count++;
}
}
}
return count;
}
What is the value of counts after the following code is run?
vector<string> snacks = {"cheetos", "ruffles", "jalepeno chips", "oreos", "m&ms"};
vector<char> letters = {'a', 'e', 'i', 'o', 'u'};
vector<int> counts = {};
for (int i = 0; i < letters.size(); ++i) {
counts.push_back(howMany(snacks, letters[i]));
}

What is being counted by
repeater
in each iteration of the outer loop? Definitely not everything! 32

repeater
does count repeats but does it consider values at the same indexes repeats? 18

repeater
considers the number of times each index shares a value with any of the other indices. 13

repeater
dosen’t simply count the number of elements.
Q12: Suppose you have defined the repeater
function as the following
int repeater (const vector<int>& vec) {
int count = 0;
for (size_t i = 0; i < vec.size(); i++) {
for (size_t j = 0; j < vec.size(); j++) {
if ((vec[j] == vec[i]) && (i != j)) {
count++;
}
}
}
return count;
}
What is the value of counter after the following code is run?
vector<int> vals = {1,1,3,2,2,3,3,4,5,6,7,4,4,5};
int counter = repeater(vals);
