Hi all,

I was shortlisted via amcat for the programming round n got the admit card for it.

In the test, There were 30 questions based on sql, unix, (c/c++/java) you can choose for the language you want, 10 question on each. Time was of 30 mins.

Then there was a programming round 7 question were there which were logically incorrect we had to make them correct so they give desired output, I think they don\'t focus much on this round as I was only able to make 2 correct out if seven in 20 minutes.

Please read the guidelines correctly before only as I wasted my 10 mins in understanding the platform given to make those programs correct.

There is no main function required and no scanf and print function required you just have to make the function correct.

Question were,

Binary search.

Factorial by recursion.

Switch case for days of the week to return the day no. Like sunday -1, monday-2 etc.
