Define a main( ) function to create an object and call the functions accordingly to enable the task.


In “Piglatin” a word such as KING is replaced by INGKAY, while TROUBLE becomes OUBLETRAY and so on. The first vowel of the original word becomes the start of the translation, any preceding letters being shifted towards the end and followed by AY. Words that begin with a vowel or which do not contain any vowel are left unchanged.

Design a class Piglatin using the description of the data members and member functions given below:

Class name Piglatin
variables :
Txt to store a word
len to store the length
Member functions :
Piglatin( ) constructor to initialize the data   members
void readstring( ) to accept the word input in UPPER CASE
void convert ( ) converts  the word into its piglatin form and displays the word (changed or unchanged)
void consonant( ) Counts and displays the number of Consonants present in the given word.

Specify the class Piglatin giving the details of the constructor, void readstring( ), void convert( ) and void consonant( ). Also define the main function to create an object and call methods accordingly to enable the task.                 [10]

Specify the class Hifact giving details of constructor, void getdata(), void change(), intrechcf() and intfn_lcm(). Write the main function and find the hcf and lcm of any two integers a and b.                                                    [10]

 Section C
Answer any two questions

Each program should be written in such a way that it clearly depicts the logic of the problem step wise.This can also be achieved by using comments in the program and mnemonic names or pseudo codes foralgorithms. The program must be written in Java and the algorithms must be written in general/standard form, wherever required/ specified. (Flowcharts are not required.)

age : integer variable to store age of the student.

Member functions/methods :

Student( ) : constructor to assign initial values to the data members.

void show( ) : to print personal data of student.

Class Name : Marks

Data members/instance variables :

rollno, marks : integers to store roll number and marks.

Specify the class Student giving the details of the constructor, function void show(). Using the concept of inheritance, specify the class Marks giving the details of the constructor,intpoint() and void show( ) function. You do not need to write the main() function.                                                                                                                                     [5]

Question 11.
Rack is a kind of data structure which can store utmost 20 books. The Rack restriction is that a book can be kept into the rack or removed only at one end and i.e., on the top. The class Rack has the following details.

top:        integer to indicate topmost book in the rack.

Member functions

Rack():constructor to store blank in the array book[].

Rack(int m) : constructor to initialize the data members m to limit and -1 to top.

Specify the class Rack giving details of only the constructor Rack(int), member function void putthebook(int), void removebook().Assume that other functions have been defined.The main function need not be written.          [5]

Question 12.
A magic number is a number in which the eventual sum of digits of the number is equal to 1. For example,                                          172 = 1 + 7 + 2 = 10                        10 = 1 + 0 = 1

Then 172 is a magic number.

Class name                                         : Magic

Data members

n                                                           : stores the number

Member functions

Magic()                                                : constructor to assign 0 to n

void getnum(intnn)                      :   to assign the parameter value to the number,  n=nn

int sum_of_digits(int)                :  return the sum of the digits of  number void ismagic() checks if the given number  is a magic number  by calling the function sum_of_digits(int) and displays appropriate message.                   [5]
