Screen candidates with the highest quality questions

We have a very high focus on the quality of questions that test for on-the-job skills. Every question is non-googleable and we have a very high bar for the level of subject matter experts we onboard to create these questions. We have crawlers to check if any of the questions are leaked online. If/ when a question gets leaked, we get an alert. We change the question for you & let you know.

How we design questions

These are just a small sample from our library of 15,000+ questions. The actual questions on this Python, Django & SQL Test will be non-googleable.

🧐 Question

Medium

ZeroDivisionError and IndexError
Exceptions
Solve
What will the following Python code output?
 image

Medium

Session
File Handling
Dictionary
Solve
 image
The function high_sess should compute the highest number of events per session of each user in the database by reading a comma-separated value input file of session data. The result should be returned from the function as a dictionary. The first column of each line in the input file is expected to contain the user’s name represented as a string. The second column is expected to contain an integer representing the events in a session. Here is an example input file:
Tony,10
Stark,12
Black,25
Your program should ignore a non-conforming line like this one.
Stark,3
Widow,6
Widow,14
The resulting return value for this file should be the following dictionary: { 'Stark':12, 'Black':25, 'Tony':10, 'Widow':14 }
What should replace the CODE TO FILL line to complete the function?
 image

Medium

Max Code
Arrays
Solve
Below are code lines to create a Python function. Ignoring indentation, what lines should be used and in what order for the following function to be complete:
 image

Medium

Recursive Function
Recursion
Dictionary
Lists
Solve
Consider the following Python code:
 image
In the above code, recursive_search is a function that takes a dictionary (data) and a target key (target) as arguments. It searches for the target key within the dictionary, which could potentially have nested dictionaries and lists as values, and returns the value associated with the target key. If the target key is not found, it returns None.

nested_dict is a dictionary that contains multiple levels of nested dictionaries and lists. The recursive_search function is then called with nested_dict as the data and 'target_key' as the target.

What will the output be after executing the above code?

Medium

Stacking problem
Stack
Linkedlist
Solve
What does the below function ‘fun’ does?
 image
A: Sum of digits of the number passed to fun.
B: Number of digits of the number passed to fun.
C: 0 if the number passed to fun is divisible by 10. 1 otherwise.
D: Sum of all digits number passed to fun except for the last digit.

Easy

URL Dispatcher
Routes
Solve
Review the following sample Django URL.conf:
 image
Pick the correct statements if settings.APPEND_SLASH=False:

A: A request to /books/2015/04/ would match the third entry in the list. Django would call the function views.month_books(request, year=2015, month=4).
B: A request to /books/2015/04/ would match the second entry in the list. Django would call the function views.year_books(request, year=2015).

C: A request to /books/2023/ will match the first entry in the list. Django would call the the function views.custom_newyear_2023(request).
D: A request to /books/2023/ would match the second entry in the list. Django would call the function views.year_books(request, year=2023).

E: /books/2022 would not match any of these patterns, because each pattern requires that the URL end with a slash.
F: A request to /books/2022 would match the second entry in the list. Django would call the function views.year_books(request, year=2022).

Medium

External Bank Transfer
Database Transactions
Solve
Review the following Django code for a banking application:
 image
The code needs to debit an account with the provided amount and deposit the amount in an external entity. Here’s how the code is broken:

1) First, the amount is debited from the account by creating a new row in BalanceLine table.
2) Next, a new row is created in the DB in ExternalTransfer table and a new id (used as unique reference) is created for the transfer.
3) An external 3rd party API call is made using the new id created in step 2.

The function transfer_to_other_bank is called as shown below:
 image
Pick the correct statements:

A: If post_transfer_emails() raises an exception, the database transactions that happened in transfer_to_other_bank are not rolled back since they are listed in a separate atomic transaction.
B: If post_transfer_emails() raises an exception, the database transactions (new rows in ExternalTransfer and BalanceLine tables) are rolled back. The banking_api call is called again with a null reference.
C: If post_transfer_emails() raises an exception, the database transactions are rolled back but the banking_api is not called again.
D: If post_transfer_emails() raises an exception, the banking_api is called again with rollback=True. If the response is success, then the database transactions are rolled back. If the response is failure, the database transactions are committed.

Easy

Registration Queue
Logic
Queues
Solve
We want to register students for the next semester. All students have a receipt which shows the amount pending for the previous semester. A positive amount (or zero) represents that the student has paid extra fees, and a negative amount represents that they have pending fees to be paid. The students are in a queue for the registration. We want to arrange the students in a way such that the students who have a positive amount on the receipt get registered first as compared to the students who have a negative amount. We are given a queue in the form of an array containing the pending amount.
For example, if the initial queue is [20, 70, -40, 30, -10], then the final queue will be [20, 70, 30, -40, -10]. Note that the sequence of students should not be changed while arranging them unless required to meet the condition.
⚠️⚠️⚠️ Note:
- The first line of the input is the length of the array. The second line contains all the elements of the array.
- The input is already parsed into an array of "strings" and passed to a function. You will need to convert string to integer/number type inside the function.
- You need to "print" the final result (not return it) to pass the test cases.

For the example discussed above, the input will be:
5
20 70 -40 30 -10

Your code needs to print the following to the standard output:
20 70 30 -40 -10

Medium

Visitors Count
Strings
Logic
Solve
A manager hires a staff member to keep a record of the number of men, women, and children visiting the museum daily. The staff will note W if any women visit, M for men, and C for children. You need to write code that takes the string that represents the visits and prints the count of men, woman and children. The sequencing should be in decreasing order. 
Example:

Input:
WWMMWWCCC

Expected Output: 
4W3C2M

Explanation: 
‘W’ has the highest count, then ‘C’, then ‘M’. 
⚠️⚠️⚠️ Note:
- The input is already parsed and passed to a function.
- You need to "print" the final result (not return it) to pass the test cases.
- If the input is- “MMW”, then the expected output is "2M1W" since there is no ‘C’.
- If any of them have the same count, the output should follow this order - M, W, C.

Have questions about the Python, Django & SQL Hiring Test?

How does pricing work?

You can check out our pricing plans.

Can I customize the test?

Yes, absolutely. Custom assessments are set up within 48 hours based on your job description, and will include questions on all must-have skills you specify. Here's a quick guide on how you can request a custom test. You can also customize a test by uploading your own questions.

Can I combine multiple skills into one test?

Yes, absolutely. Custom assessments are set up based on your job description, and will include questions on all must-have skills you specify. Here's a quick guide on how you can request a custom test.

What roles can I use the Python, Django & SQL Test for?

Here are few roles for which we recommend this test:

  • Python/ Django Developer
  • Senior Django Developer
  • Full Stack Developer - Python/Django
  • Backend Software Engineer - Python​/Django
Can I see a sample test, or do you have a free trial?

Yes!

The free trial includes one sample technical test (Java/ JavaScript) and one sample aptitude test that you will find in your dashboard when you sign up. You can use it to review the quality of questions and the candidate experience of giving a test on Adaface.

You can preview any of the 500+ tests and see the sample questions to decide if it would be a good fit for your requirements.

How do I interpret test scores?

The primary thing to keep in mind is that an assessment is an elimination tool, not a selection tool. A skills assessment is optimized to help you eliminate candidates who are not technically qualified for the role, it is not optimized to help you find the best candidate for the role. So the ideal way to use an assessment is to decide a threshold score (typically 55%, we help you benchmark) and invite all candidates who score above the threshold for the next rounds of interview.

I'm a candidate. Can I try a practice test?

No. Unfortunately, we do not support practice tests at the moment. However, you can use our sample questions for practice.
