ROBERT BOSCH PAPER - 13 AUG 2008 - CHENNAI
I attended an off campus drive for Robert Bosch, India on 13-AUG,2008 in S.A Engg College, Chennai and I had been short listed for the Technical & HR interview on next month (SEP-2009). I am very happy and proud to convey the pattern of their written test.. It Comprises of 60 qs, to be solved in 60 minutes... For Correct Answer: +2 marks. For Wrong Answer: -0.5 marks. There will be different question paper for different disciplines. I am here present their CS&IT pattern..
Technical: 35 q
Quantitative Apti: 13 qs
English: 12 qs
(I think there may be No sectional Cutoff ,,,,, ! )
C, C++, Data Structure, Networks and Operating Systems
Profit&Loss, Time & Work, Time & Distance, Percentage, A.P, G.P, Average and general maths qs..
Error Correction, Jumbled Sentences, Inference from the passage..
These are the questions that I remember...
int const *p = 10;
Ans: Compilation Error
char *a = “man”;
extern int i = 10;
Ans: Runtime error
float f= 1.1;
double d = 1.1;
if ( f == d)
printf(“I LOVE U”);
printf(“I HATE U”);
Ans: I HATE U
5.How many queues are required to implement Priority queue
6.A Binary tree is given and asked to write post order traversal
7.No of Nodes of Perfect Binary Tree :
8.Which Data Structure is efficient to implement Trees
Ans: Linked List
9. Heterogeneous Linked List is implemented using
Ans: Void pointers
int i = 15;
int const & j = i;
cout << i << j << endl;
i = 9;
cout << i << j << endl
ANS: 15 15
11. which of the following function is used to display a character in console
13. To use manipulators we have to include the header file..
14. Virtual memory consist of main memory and
ANS: swap files
15. Command used to partition the disk
16. A question from MS-DOS
17. A question from power management
18. A problem in Paging (Given Main and Secondary memory access time, and Hit Ratio)
19. Which of the following is a network layer protocol
a) TELNET b) FTP. Sorry I forget the remaining
20. A question from class addressing
21. A question from routing algorithm
22. Profit & Loss problem
23. Percentage problem
24. General Maths problem
25. Surface area
26. Time & Distance
27. Time & Work
30. Jumbled Sentences – 3 qs
31. Error Correction – 3 qs
32. Inference from paragraph – 2 qs
TIPS: I answered only 48 qs... I skipped 2 qs in English, 3 qs in Apti, 2 qs in C++, 3 qs in Networks and 2 qs in OS... Among these 48 qs that I answered, I am sure that all of them are right... So if u answered more than 45 qs U almost get through.. Time is not a problem here... You can solve technical qs within 20 mins if u r sound in it..
For C: Follow EXPLORING C by Yashwant Kanitkar
For Aps: Its fully quantitative so Quantitative Aptitude By Agarwal is more than enough
For OS: Concentrate on Paging, Segmentation, Commands in UNIX & MS-DOS.. I referred Silberschatz book
For Networks: Concentrate on Duties of Each Layers as well as Protocols used in each layer, Class Addressing, Routing & its algorithms.. Forouzan Book will be handy
For Data Structure: Prepare on Trees, Graphs, Stacks, queues, Linked List.. I referred Wicikipedia articles for all the Data Structure topics...
For English: Its all depend on ur English knowledge & some common sense.. For me it’s a cake walk...
So , The Bottom-Line is if u are sound in Technical and having a average problem solving skill and some common sense u can easily get through the Robert Bosch Written Test...All The Best Guys!!
