I am Vishwanath gouda B. I got selected to TCS. My written exam was on 10th April 2007 and technical round was held on 11th April 2007. 280 students were written the written test, out of which 80 of them are selected for technical round and finally after the technical, MR, HR round 38 were selected and I am one among them.
The pattern of question paper obtained to me is given below. It may be helpful to u.
The paper was as usual 3 sections
I. Verbal Ability
[Synonyms (10M) + Antonyms (10M) + Two passages are there each carries 6M (2 X 6 = 12)]
GRE Barron's is enough for this section
Some of the synonyms are
II. Quantitative & logical
1) A plane moves from 9°N40°E to 9°N50°W. If the plane starts at 5 am and takes 8 hours to reach the destination, find the local arrival time. Since it is moving from east to west longitide we need to add both ie,40+50=90 multiply the ans by 4(here 1 deg longitude=4min)
90*4=360 min =6hr
2) A, B and C are 8 bit no's. They are as follows:
A -> 1 1 0 0 0 1 0 1
B -> 0 0 1 1 0 0 1 1
C -> 0 0 1 1 1 0 1 0 ( - =minus, u=union=or)
Find ((A - C) u B) =?
3) We have to find (A-C) U B To find A-C, We will find 2's compliment of C and them add it with A, That will give us (A-C)
2' s compliment of C=1's compliment of C+1=11000101+1 =11000110
A-C=11000101+11000110 =10001001 Now (A-C) U B is .OR. logic operation on (A-C) and B
10001001 .OR . 00110011 The answer is = 10111011
Whose decimal equivalent is 187.
4) Which of the following is power of 4 a) 2345 b) 9875 c) 4096 d) 9833
