**7) Read the given passage and answer the questions that follow**

Typically, when an author signs a publishing contract, she or her agent negotiates an advance against royalties. When a book ‘has sold for’ so many dollars, this amount is the advance and not a flat purchase price. An advance is often paid in three installments: when the contract is signed, when the manuscript is accepted by the publisher, and when the book is published. Some publishers may break down these payments even more. Once the book is published, authors make a percentage of sales for each book sold, which are their ‘ royalties’. However they are essentially earning money they have already been paid. Once a book has made the author the amount of royalties they were advanced, they begin to earn additional royalties;this is often called earning out. If the book never makes the advance back, the author does not have to pay the overage back to the publisher, except in circumstances where they have violated/ terminated the contract.

**What does ‘earning out’ become operational?**

**21) Given an array Arr[] of N integer numbers. The task is to rewrite the array by putting all multiples of 10 at the end of the given array. **

**[Note: The order of the numbers which are not multiples of 10 should remain unaltered, and similarly, the order of all multiples of 10 should be unaltered.]**

** For e.g. Suppose N = 9 and Arr[]={10, 12, 5, 40, 30, 7, 50, 9, 10} You have to push all multiples of 10 at the end of the Arr[] Hence, the output is 12 5 7 9 10 40 30 50 10. **

** Constraints:**

1 < N < = 100 .100 < = Arr[i] < = 100 Input Format for Testing:

1. First input line: Accept a single positive integer value for N representing the size of Arr[].

2. Second Input line: Accept N number of integer values separated by a new line.

**Output Format for Testing:**

1. The output must be N integer numbers separated by a single space character (See the output format in examples).

2. Additional messages in the output will result in the failure of test cases.

**Code (C) :**

```
#include<stdio.h>
int main()
{
int n,i,a[10];
scanf("%d",&n);
for(i=0;i<n;i++){
scanf("%d",a[i]);
}
for(i=0;i<n;i++){
if(a[1]%10!=0)
printf("%d",a[i]);
}
for(i=0;i<n;i++){
if(a[1]%10 ==0)
printf("%d",a[i]);
}
return0;
}
```

**22)Given an array Arr[N] of N integers and a positive integer K. The task is to divide the array into two sub-arrays from right after the Kth position and slide the left sub-array of K elements to the end**

**Code: **

```
#include<stdio.h>
void Rotateby(int arr[],intn){
intx=arr[n-1],i;
for(i=n-1;i›0;i--)
arr[i]=arr[i-1];
arr[]=x;
}
void Rotate(int arr[],intd,intn){
for(inti=0;i<d;i++)
Rotateby(arr,n);
printArray(int arr[],intn)
for(inti=0;i<n;i++)
printf("%d",arr[i]);
void printArray(int arr[],intn){
for(inti=0;i<n;i++)
printf("%d",arr[i]);
}
int main(){
int arr[10],i;
int n,k;
scanf("%d",&n);
for(i0;i<n;i++)
scanf("%d",&arr[i]);
scanf("%d",&k);
Rotate(arr,k,n);
printArray(arr,n);|
return 0;
}
```

**23) There is a bag with three types of gemstones: Ruby of type R, Garnet of type g, and Topaz of type T. Write a program to find the total number of possible arrangements to make a series of gemstones where no two gemstones of the same type are adjacent to each other. **

** **

** ****Code: **

```
#include<stdio.h>
int countWays(intp,intq,intr,int last){
if(p<0||q<e||r<e)
return 0;
if(p==1&&q==0&&r==0&& last ==0)
return1;
if(p==0&&q==1&&r=-0 && last ==1)
return1;
if(p==0&&q==0&&r=-1 && last ==2)
return 1;
if(last ==0)
return countWays(p-1,q,r,1) + countWays(p-1,q,r,2);
if(last ==1)
return countWays(p,q-1,r,0) + +countWays(p,q-1,r,2);
if(last=-2)
return countWays(p,q,r-1,0) + +countWays(p,q,r-1,1);
}
int pepHub(int p,int q,int r){
return countWays(p,q,r,e)+countWays(p,q,r,1)+countWays(p,q,r,2);
}
int main(){
int p , q ,r ;
scanf("%d%d%d",&p,&q,&r);
printf("%d",pepHub(p,q,r));
return 0;
}
```
