He asked me 3 Puzzles and I was able to Answer Only 1 out of them.Answering the Puzzle is not the criteria, But you need to pretend that you are trying to Get the Answer
He then Asked some questions on My Hobbies And I answered them pretty well. This is the point where I Impressed Him( If I am not wrong :p).
TR : Asked me Any queries?
Me : Asked a Question.
After that he said me to leave.
After 15 mins I was called for HR Interview(You will make it to HR only if You qualify TR)
HR : So Yashwanth How was your day?
Me : Its Good Sir and I am very happy to be a part of this Interview!
Hr : Oh! So where are you from?
Me : Vijayawada
HR : Tell Me about Vijayawada?
Me : TOLD.
HR : Why Cognizant?What is Your Long term Goal? In how Many years You want to achieve that?
HR then asked me about my Hobbies and I answered them the same way I answered them to TR. He asked Me to Sign on the Paper And Asked me If I Had any Questions.
I Asked him the Same question I asked the TR And then He Said Me to Leave.

So To Crack Cognizant You need to do very well in TR and Your Communication Skills Must be Very Good When You are answering the Questions Posed by HR.
