The first one was the conversion of a given _expression into its postfix form and
then to evaluate it.

2)
The question was to have a circularly linked link-list of integers 1 to n. I we give k
as an input then we have to output(print) 1, k, 1+2k, 1+3k … till n and we have to
delete these numbers. When we give then next k we have to continue the same
process starting with 2. The linked needs to be maintained.
