C# Sharp Exercises: Count the number of duplicate characters in a string

C# Sharp String: Exercise-60 with Solution

Write a C# Sharp program to count the number of duplicate characters (case sensitive) including spaces in a given string. Return 0 if there is no duplicates.

Sample Data:
("Red Green WHITE") -> 2
("ppqrrsttuuu") -> 4
("dow jones industrial average") -> 9

Sample Solution-1:

C# Sharp Code:

using System;
using System.Linq;
namespace exercises
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {

            string text = "Red Green WHITE";
            Console.WriteLine("Original String: " + text);
            Console.WriteLine("Number of duplicate characters in the said string: " + test(text));
            text = "ppqrrsttuuu";
            Console.WriteLine("Original String: " + text);
            Console.WriteLine("Number of duplicate characters in the said string: " + test(text));
            text = "dow jones industrial average";
            Console.WriteLine("Original String: " + text);
            Console.WriteLine("Number of duplicate characters in the said string: " + test(text));
        }

        public static int test(string text)
        {
            return text.GroupBy(n => n).Count(n => n.Count() >= 2);
        }
    }
}

Sample Output:

Original String: Red Green WHITE
Number of duplicate characters in the said string: 2
Original String: ppqrrsttuuu
Number of duplicate characters in the said string: 4
Original String: dow jones industrial average
Number of duplicate characters in the said string: 9

Sample Solution-2:

C# Sharp Code:

using System;
using System.Linq;
namespace exercises
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {

            string text = "Red Green WHITE";
            Console.WriteLine("Original String: " + text);
            Console.WriteLine("Number of duplicate characters in the said string: " + test(text));
            text = "ppqrrsttuuu";
            Console.WriteLine("Original String: " + text);
            Console.WriteLine("Number of duplicate characters in the said string: " + test(text));
            text = "dow jones industrial average";
            Console.WriteLine("Original String: " + text);
            Console.WriteLine("Number of duplicate characters in the said string: " + test(text));
        }

        public static int test(string text)
        {
            var t = from x in text
                      group x by x into gr
                      where gr.Count() > 1
                      select gr;

            return (t.Count());
        }
    }
}

Sample Output:

Original String: Red Green WHITE
Number of duplicate characters in the said string: 2
Original String: ppqrrsttuuu
Number of duplicate characters in the said string: 4
Original String: dow jones industrial average
Number of duplicate characters in the said string: 9
