I am sorry I am unable to recollect the questions but they also repeated.
Then the English test for1/2 hour.
The first one is comprehension passage. very easy. Just 5 mins for reading.6 questions based on it.
Next sentence completion i.e fill the blanks with appropriate words (like in gre but not that much difficult).next comes sentence correction.
9 to 10 questions on tences.Be sure it?s a little bit confusing though it looks very easy this is where we made lot of mistakes. Again 4 long sentences were given under single question. We have to find the wrong one very easy read the sentences as fast as u can so that time is not wasted.becoz we have to answer 45 questions in 30 mins.
One more section is there regarding verbal using .Thats it. Hope it may help for some.

Me :( Actually I din?t do anything .I just write it becoz I have no choice left on that time so?I answered it like this.)
Sir actually we did no projects but we our classmates form as groups and discuss different topics, share our views and try to improve our skills by getting feed back from our team members.
Sir: Ur active in Organizing events (this is also I mentioned).so what are the events u have organized this year.

Me: we organized our college freshers and farewell parties and also annual days.
Sir: now in this sem Ur going to work on a project.what u would like to be? Eiher leader or member?
Me: obviously leader.
Sir: how could u manage the team?
Me: Since for every project there are 7 levels, I will plan a schedule; explain it to all my team members. I will make sure that they should do their work in the time. I will also instruct them how precious the time is? Not only that I will made them feel comfortable to express their views to me by moving closely with them. I never command them but also never request them I tell them to feel the responsibility and at times I will assign some power to one of them to guide others so that they can involve with greater interest from then onwards.
Sir: ok if any team member complaints against u that u r crossing Ur limits. Then how can u solve that?
Me: I will straight away go to him and talk to him personally for that matter and try to know what's my mistake or what about me made him feel like that. We will have a 15 to20 mins discussin on it and if my fault is there I will ask him apology and will have our misunderstandings be sorted out. After that we will work together as usually.
Sir: two of Ur project members were very irregular people and they have pending work today and u have to submit Ur project work tomorrow. Then?
Me: Sir, since I am friendly with all my members there is no question of such situation arising in my project. If there is any problem they will definitely intimate me before hand
Becoz I will create such an environment to all my team members. If at all by some reason if such situation occurs I will take whole responsibility, when u decide to lead, u have to be ready to accept the responsibilities and to take risk. Any way I will have other team members with whose help I will complete the project.
Sir: so u will take pain to complete the project?
Me: yes sir.i do.
Sir: Any questions?
Me: what r my day to day responsibilities if I enter in to infosys?
Sir: so eagerly waiting for accepting the responsibilities. Ok Miss kalpana u will be taught Ur responsibilities in Ur training period and don?t bother much about them.
Sir: ok kalpana All the best.
Me: ThankQ sir???.. (waited for 2 mins) asked him shall I leave sir?
Sir: he looked at me surprisingly and told me if u want u can (with a smile on his face)
Me: I also smiled at him and told that Sir I din't mean it but???.
Sir: its ok.have any more questions?
Me: is there any thing else that u want me to learn in order to fit into infosys?
