Can anyone point me to sample code snippets for traversing n-ary tree with k-nodes randomly may be based on some conditions like a Node holding a boolean variable with value as true etc?

Sounds like homework.  Why don't you write something and we'll help you with it if you have problems?

LOL!!
 I know the obvious rules and kind of missed it [may be because I have in-active for quite sometime in the forum]! I have been part of this community for almost 6 years. Don't think I am in a place to ask home work questions here :-)

If not sample code, you can at least give me pointers on how nodes be accesses randomly!

Anyways, I'll try to post something for tomorrow and see how it goes.

Thanks!

You would have to decide what randomly means to you. You could use the random number generator and convert the results to an identifier of a node in your tree.  The whole topic of true randomness is a difficult one.

Or maybe you just mean that you will get requests for nodes and the node might be anywhere in the tree?

You've been asking a series of questions about n-ary trees.  Are you able to describe your problem more clearly?  The reason your questions sound like homework is that the problem descriptions sound like the sort of not real problems you would get in a class.

Please look at my other question here

I have more detailed explanation of What I was trying to achieve.

Yes, that's what I looked at when I was trying to determine whether this was homework or not.  Very generic description.

If you don't post any code, it's harder to get a response from EE.  We don't write code for people.  Given the vagueness of your question, have you tried googling?  I found many, many responses, both of the general problem and with some code samples.  So, for example:
http://vivin.net/2010/01/30/generic-n-ary-tree-in-java/
http://www.cs.auckland.ac.nz/~jmor159/PLDS210/n_ary_trees.html

That might be best if you don't want to write any code at this time.
