**Australian Informatics Competition Sample Question Set 1 Intermediate
**

These questions are based on questions from past AIC papers. The data in the questions has been changed, so the answers will be different. In all other respects, the questions are the same. AIC papers have two parts. Part A consists of 6 multiple choice questions. Part B questions have integer answers, and in each question students apply their solutions to three sets of data. A book of 2005-2010 past questions, with answers and solutions is available for purchase on the AMT website www.amt.edu.au.

How many seconds does it take to evacuate your building? 0 1 4 3 (A) 11 (B) 13 2 4 2 1 5 3 5 4 3 2 4 2 (D) 15 (E) 45 (C) 14 . • If a classroom is not adjacent to any empty rooms. students may leave classrooms according to the following rules: • If a classroom is adjacent to an empty room (or possibly several empty rooms). one and only one student may leave. with the initial numbers of students on the left hand side.3 Your school is preparing for its annual ﬁre drill. Evacuation 2006 I. as illustrated below. An example of a 2 × 3 grid of classrooms is shown below. Rooms are only adjacent horizontally or vertically. with the top-left classroom left empty. not diagonally. 1. Questions are worth 3 points each. Note that you can never have several students leaving a room at the same time (even if the room is adjacent to several different empty rooms). no students may leave. It can be seen that the entire building is evacuated after four seconds. Each time the clock ticks another second. Each building in the school consists of a grid of classrooms. Set 1 5 Intermediate Questions: Part A Each question should be answered by a single choice from A to E. This student leaves the building immediately (they do not spend any time walking through the empty rooms).Australian Informatics Competition : Sample questions. 0 1 1 2 3 1 → 0 0 0 2 3 1 → 0 0 0 1 2 1 → 0 0 0 0 1 1 → 0 0 0 0 0 0 Your building is slightly larger — a 4 × 4 grid of classrooms.

For example. 4. 60. 50. 1 + 2 < 4. 1.2 A rising sequence is a list of numbers where each number is greater than the sum of all the numbers before it. 2. You may move the token around according to the following rule: in each move the token may travel any distance either horizontally or vertically. Dungeon 2005 I. 6. To reach any other square would require more than one move. 5. or one square down in a single move. 8. 12. How many numbers are in your rising sequence? (A) 4 (B) 5 (C) 6 (D) 7 (E) 8 3. 17 is not a rising sequence because 1 + 2 + 4 < 6. You are given the following list of numbers: 3. 11. 30. from its starting position the token could travel either one square left. × For example. 22 is a rising sequence because 1 < 2. On the other hand. 1. 95. Set 1 6 2. but it cannot pass over or stop on a shaded square. What is the minimum number of moves that you need to ensure that the token can reach any white square from its starting position? (A) 8 (B) 9 (C) 10 (D) 11 (E) 12 . 4. one square right.6 A token (marked ‘X’ in the diagram) is in a maze. 25. Your task is to form the longest possible rising sequence using numbers from this list. 1 + 2 + 4 < 12 and 1 + 2 + 4 + 12 < 22. 2. Rising Sequences 2006 I.Australian Informatics Competition : Sample questions. 45.

and the tippers deem it a point of honour to pay as little as possible in charges. transferring $10 from A to B and $10 from B to C would cost 20¢. The actual amounts owed to each other by the tippers were: Ann owed $4 to Bob and $2 to Col Bob owed $5 to Eric Col owed $6 to Eric Don owed $7 to Bob and $5 to Col Eric owed $3 to Don What is the smallest amount of SMS charges possible in settling all debts? (A) 10¢ (B) 15¢ (C) 25¢ (D) 26¢ (E) 32¢ . Set 1 7 4. SMS Payments 2009 I. SMS payments charge 1% of the amount for each transfer.2 The footy season is over. the bets have been added up and it is time for settling the debts.4. For instance. The members of the tipping competition are scattered over Australia. but the same result could be achieved by transferring $10 from A to C for a total charge of 10¢.Australian Informatics Competition : Sample questions. S. so they decide to use SMS payments.

DCBAHGFE GHIDEFABC DHJIABFECG . For instance if the instruction order was CDBA. but more than one swap per day would be too risky. Escape 2008 I. and the prisoner in cell 2 should have instructions B.10-12 3 The escape has been planned but the prisoners have the wrong instructions. Each day there is an opportunity for prisoners in adjacent cells to swap instructions. Questions are worth 2 points each.Australian Informatics Competition : Sample questions. it would take 5 days of swapping to get to the correct order ABCD. For each of the following orders. how many days of swapping would it take to get the correct instructions to every prisoner? 5. 7. The prisoner in cell 1 should have instructions A. 5–7. Set 1 8 Intermediate Questions: Part B Each question should be answered by a number in the range 0–999. and so on. 6.

13-15. Spiral Amoeba 2010 I. However. → CG CAT ATG A mutant base M has inﬁltrated the DNA of the spiral amoeba. and scientists are concerned to ﬁnd its location in the DNA sequence.10-12 3 The DNA of the spiral amoeba is laid down in a spiral pattern.) For example. and within each row from left to right. the DNA sequence A C G T G T A C would be laid down as follows: A → C A → CG A → CG AT → . 9. 10... they can only read the sequence row by row from top to bottom. The second base is placed directly above the ﬁrst and subsequent bases are added clockwise. what is the position of the M base in the original DNA sequence? 8. S.Australian Informatics Competition : Sample questions. So in the example above the reading of the sequence would be C G C A T A T G. (DNA is made up of “bases” A C G and T. M A C T G G C A T A G C T T G C A T T M T G C A G C A T M C C G G . For each of the readings of DNA sequences below. Set 1 9 8–10.
