Ans :

class ParkingLot
int vno,hours;
double bill;
void input(int v,int hr)

void calculate()

void display()
System.out.println(“Vechile Number :”+vno);
System.out.println(“No. Of hours :”+hours);
System.out.println(“Bill :” +bill);

void main(int v1,int h1)
ParkingLot p=new ParkingLot();

Question 5

Write two separate programs to generate the following patterns using iteration(loop) statements :



class Pattern1
static void test()
for(int i=1;i<=5;i++)
for(int j=1;j<=i;j++)
System.out.print(“* “);
System.out.print(“# “);
class Pattern2
static void test()
int k = 5;
for(int i=5;i>=0;i–)
for(int j=i;j>=0;j–)
System.out.print(k+” “);

Question 6

Question 7

Design a class to overload a function Joystring() as follows :

(i)void Joystring(String s, char ch1, char ch2) with one string and two character arguments that replaces the character argument ch1 with the character argument ch2 in the given string s and points the new string
Example :
Input value of s = “TECHNALAGY”
ch1 = ‘A’ , ch2 = ‘O’

(ii)void Joystring(String s) with one string argument that prints the position of the first space and the last space of the given String s.
Example :First Index : 5
Last Index : 36

(iii)void Joystring(String s1, String s2) with two string arguments that combines the two strings with a space between them and prints the resultant string
Example :
Input value of s1 = “COMMON WEALTH”
s2 = “GAMES”

Ans :

class Question_7
void Joystring(String s,char ch1,char ch2)
System.out.println(“New String : “+(s.replace(ch1,ch2)));


void Joystring(String s)
System.out.println(“First Index : “+(s.indexOf(‘ ‘)));
System.out.println(“Last Index : “+(s.lastIndexOf(‘ ‘)));
void Joystring(String s1,String s2)
System.out.println(“New String : “+(s1.concat(s2)));


Question 8

Write a program to input twenty names in an array. Arrange these names in descending order of alphabets , using the bubble sort technique

Ans :

import java.util.*;
class buble_strng
static void main()
Scanner cy=new Scanner(System.in);
String m[]=new String[20],t;
System.out.println(“Enter names in the array : “);
for(int i=0;i<m.length;i++)
System.out.print(“m[“+i+”] :”);
for(int i=0;i<m.length-1;i++)
for(int j=i+1;j<m.length;j++)
System.out.println(“Sorted array : “);
for(int i=0;i<m.length;i++)

Question 9

Use switch statement,write a menu driven program to:
(i) To find and display all the factors of a number input by the user (including 1 and excluding number itself.)
Example :
Sample Input : n=15.
Sample Output : 1,3,5

(ii) To find and display the factorial of a number input by the user(the factorial of a non-negative integer n ,denoted by n!,is the product of all integers less than or equal to n. Example : Sample Input : n=5 Sample Output : 120.

For an incorrect choice ,an appropriate error message should be displayed.
