Problem Here is a list of students’ exam scores. Write a function to sort them based on given criteria. Like Math first, then Physics and then chemistry and then English. (def exam-scores [{:math 78 :physics 80 :english 97 :chemistry 65} {:math 78 :physics 80 :english 66 :chemistry 65} {:math 78 :physics 54 :english 97 :chemistry 65} {:math 78 :physics 80 :english 97 :chemistry 61} {:math 100 :physics 89 :english 47 :chemistry 85} {:math 98 :physics 80 :english 79 :chemistry 65}]) Solution (defn rank scores & criteria) Note The sort-by in Clojure is very powerful, the idea is to reduce each row into one value that we know how to sort, like numbers, strings or lists.
