## Programming Assignment Answers:-

**Q1. Write a program which takes the following as input: an integer N, an integer A, a sequence of N words which should be names of countries, a sequence of A words each of which is an attribute of a country (e.g. population, area, GDP), followed by a sequence of N*A real numbers (use double) where the iA+j th number gives the value of the jth attribute of the ith country, where 0<=j<A, 0<=i<N, followed by a sequence of pairs of words. The first word in each pair must be the name of a country, and the second an attribute. The program must then print the respective attribute of the respective country (e.g. population of India, GDP of China).**

**Code:-**

```
#include<vector>
int main()
{
int n, m;
cin >> n >> m;
vector<string> v;
vector<string> a;
vector<double> b;
vector<string> c;
for (int i = 0; i < n; i++)
{
string s;
cin >> s;
v.push_back(s);
}
for (int i = 0; i < m; i++)
{
string s;
cin >> s;
a.push_back(s);
}
for (int i = 0; i < n * m; i++)
{
double t;
cin >> t;
b.push_back(t);
}
string s;
int y = 0;
while (cin >> s)
{
c.push_back(s);
y++;
}
int A[10000], B[10000], e = -1, p = 0;
for (int i = 0; i < y; i++)
{
for (int j = 0; j < n; j++)
{
if (c[i] == v[j])
A[++e] = j * m;
}
for (int k = 0; k < m; k++)
{
if (c[i] == a[k])
B[p++] = k + A[e];
}
}
for (int i = 0; i < p; i++)
cout << b[B[i]] << endl;
return 0;
}
```

**Q2. You are to write a function makeT that takes as input a set S of integers, and a target value T, and determines if any subset of the numbers in Sadds up to T. The function should be a modification of the function given in the quiz for printing all subsets of a set. The function should have thefollowing signature:**

**Code:-**

```
bool makeT(int S[], bool selected[], int i, int n, int T)
{
bool set[n + 1][T + 1];
for (int i = 0; i <= n; i++)
set[i][0] = true;
for (int i = 1; i <= T; i++)
set[0][i] = false;
for (int i = 1; i <= n; i++)
{
for (int j = 1; j <= T; j++)
{
if (j < S[i - 1])
set[i][j] = set[i - 1][j];
if (j >= S[i - 1])
set[i][j] = set[i - 1][j] || set[i - 1][j - S[i - 1]];
}
}
return set[n][T];
}
```
