The main object of this study material is to provide crisp information of the subject of the
Computer Programming and Data Structures (CPDS) in the form of Questions and Answers to
help the students for preparation of examinations. This material is prepared for I year B.Tech
students of all the branches of engineering of GRIET (Autonomous). Questions have been
collected from previous question papers of J NTUH and GRIET (Autonomous) and answers have
been prepared by Faculty of Computer Programming and Data Structures. Definitions, concepts,
algorithms, flowcharts, programs & outputs, diagrams and figures have been incorporated
wherever necessary. This material is only a guideline for the students and so they are advised to
refer various text books and other sources of information related to the subject. This material has
been prepared by senior faculty with utmost care. However, corrections, modifications and
improvements are solicited from students, faculty and experts in the subject for the further
improvement of the quality of the content. The Faculty of CPDS are thankful to the management
for their encouragement and for the facilities providedfor thepreparation of this material. And
we also extend our thanks to all the teachers who have contributed to the preparation of this
