I think the paper was bit tough..none from Shakuntala Devi...
English was easy.. a person with basic knowledge can answer it..
My advice to future infy aspirants is go thru Shakuntala Devi Books and George Summers but dont depend on those books completely. Try solving previous papers, but dont expect questions to repeat. Go to the exam hall like questions are going to be new. If questions from Previous papers come, then it is ok. if it does not come, dont get upset but give your best shot and one more thing show ur rough work clearly in the space provided. I think they r also taking into account this rough work. I have done this and I have solved 8 out of 10. 7 were sure correct. I am not sure about Infy selection in which criteria they are selecting becoz some people who solved 5,6,7 q's got selected. My two friends one has done 5 and other 7. They got selected. So it also depend on your luck becoz in this center out of 1000, 150 got selected for interview. If 100 students solved 7 or any same no of q's they take randomly some. So luck is also important. Work very hard, solve as many puzzles as possible. start solving, utilize time efficiently effectively, keep all things aside and concentrate on this exam. Success will be yours.
