Q1 Develop an implementation of the basic symbol-table API that uses 2-3 trees that are not necessarily balanced as the underlying data structure. Allow 3-nodes to lean either way. Hook the new node onto the bottom with a black link when inserting into a 3-node at the bottom.

Q2. Run experiments to develop a hypothesis estimating the average path length in a tree built from (i) N-random insertions. (ii) N-sorted insertions?

Q3. Write a program that computes the percentage of red nodes in a given red-black tree. Test program by running at least 100 trials of the experiment of increasing N random keys into an initially empty tree for N=10^4, 10^5 and 10^6 and formulate a hypothesis.

Run empirical studies to compute the average and std deviation of the average length of a path to a random node (internal path length divided by tree size) in a red-black BST built by insertion of N random keys into an initially empty tree, for N from 1 to 10,000. Do at least 1,000 trials for each size.

Q5. Implement the rank() and select() ordered operations for a BST. Use data set linked below. (i) What is the value of select(7) for the data set? (ii) What is the value of rank(7) for the data set? [10 points]
