Instructions for submitting the programs

  • Programs (script files) must be neatly written, well commented, well indented. Do not write haphazardly! Do not submit scripts that issue an error on executing (zero marks will be awarded for such programs)!

  • Please evaluate the function you have written for different values of inputs.

  • Submit a text file containing results you have obtained and the input values that you gave for evaluating the functions you wrote.

  • Submit assignments by emailing your program scripts and the text file containing results and input values. Submit the results which you have tested on multiple examples covering all possibilities pertaining to that program. It carries marks.
