QUESTIONS WERE THESE TYPES
Q.1 to Q.3 Prepositions
One of the questions was-
__ his vacation, Ram went __ the forest and also walked __ the river.
Ans: During, to, along (other options may confuse you, like you would think it can be 'across the river', but choose the one in which all three are fitting)
There was 1 question that had only 1 blank as well.
Q.4 to Q.6- Choose the closest meaning to the words in Italics:
One of the questions was-
Due to his versatile qualities, Mohan was able to do all types of jobs quite easily.
(Other options can confuse you like 'Multi-talented' was an option, but choose the word that exactly fits in the sentence and carries the correct meaning)
Q.7- Q.10 Articles:
Fill in the articles in the following sentences:
One of the questions was-
__ essay, which was later chosen as __ best, was written by __ student who used to be quiet in the class.

(These type of questions were quite easy and there were 1-2 questions that had only 1 blank as well)
Q.11- Q.15 were based on a passage that was related to operating system (OS 2 and its newer versions. It was compared to other operating systems and its advantages and disadvantages were discussed)
The answers of the 3 questions were within the passage and answers of 2 questions had to be given by interpreting the passage. So I would suggest, since the passage was long and time consuming, better have a glance on the questions before starting the reading.
Q.16- Q.20 were based on another passage on PLM (Process Life cycle Management)
This passage was very long so I left it for the end.
Apply the same trick for answering the questions of the very long passage!!!
SECTION II- Q.21 to Q.40
Q.21- Q.26 These were the questions based on Venn diagram.
If in a class 80 people speak English, 42 speak French, 65 speak Hindi, 12 speak both English and Hindi, 17 speak both French and Hindi, 13 speak both English and French and 6 speak all three languages, how many people are there in all?

Q.46-Q.49 were based on the Puzzle-type question. It said:
Following was the criteria decided by the selection committee of Indian Cricket Board:
1) Player's age should be 18-28 years
2) He must be the captain of any cricket team for at least 2 years
3) He must be a Ranji Player for at least 2 years
4) He must have taken at least 20 wickets or made 1000 runs in a calendar year in Ranji
If 1st condition is not fulfilled .. referred to chairman
If 2nd condition is not fulfilled .. he must be an all rounder with at least 500 runs and 15 wickets
If 4th condition is not fulfilled .. referred to VP
Questions were like following example:
Rahul was born on Dec.10,1979 and is a captain of Ranji team since Feb 2005. He won man of the tournament last year for taking 24 wickets last year. He is:
a) Selected b) Rejected c) Referred to Chairman d)Data Insufficient
(These questions are also easy if you draw a table with names of the aspirant in rows and criteria in the columns, and then checking whether he/she fulfils it or not)
Q.50- Q.55 were also a bit easy and were of two types:
Example of type 1:
If * means +, + means -, - means / and / means *, then what is the value of-
Example of type 2:
If * means /, / means -, - means + and + means *, then which of the following is true:
a) 7+43*2/13-7+8 = 22.6 b) 4-9*7/4*2/3-7+2 = 25 .. ..
(The type 1 are easier and less time consuming and type 2 are more time consuming but still can be solved. 3 of the questions were of type1 and other 3 of type two)
Note: The Examples that I have given are almost the same questions that were asked to us. Few examples are given by me to just make you understand the type pf question since I don't exactly remember the question.
