hi, i was going through java exercise and i did not understand this exercise. if you know anything, please post your comment here.
Consider the usual algorithm for determining whether a sequence of parentheses is balanced. Suppose that you run the algorithm on a sequence that contains 2 left parentheses and 3 right parentheses (in some order). What is the maximum number of parentheses that will ever appear on the stack AT ONE TIME during the computation? A. 1 B. 2 C. 3 D. 4 E. 5 or more
This doesn't even look like a Java exercise. Algorithms are typically described in a language independent way. So do you know what "the usual algorithm for determining whether a sequence of parentheses is balanced" means? Do you have a guess at what the answer is? Better yet, can you justify your guess?
You need to make an attempt then I will be glad to provide feedback on what you think the right answer is.
