Algorithms: Basic Exercises – Part 1

In this post, you’ll find a collection of basic exercises for you to practice ‘Algorithms’ which is a fundamental topic in Computer Science. Each exercise includes a solution but for the absolute beginners, I recommend to try and solve the questions by yourself, without peeking at the solution. This is the best way to master algorithms over time. Enjoy!
