### INFOSYS PAPER - 27 NOV 2005 - BANGALORE

Infosys Question Paper

Date: 27-11-2005

Location: Bangalore

Venue: Christ College

My Experience & Suggestions:

Hello Friends I am Pradeep Kumar P. I have completed my B.E in Information Science. I am a fresher. 2005 passed out. I had infosys written test on 27-11-05. There were two parts (Aptitude & Verbal). Aptitude was for 60 min (10 questions). Verbal was for 30 min (45 questions).

I dint prepare from any book for aptitude. It was very easy. A person with basic knowledge of algebra & truth tables can clear the aptitude. Even a middle-school student can face the aptitude. I have given all the 10 questions to you. I could answer 9 questions. All the 9 questions are correct according to my knowledge. I dint understand the meaning of one question. So I could not answer it. I am not confident about the answers. Please check them once. But the questions what I have given are correct. But the order of the options may not be correct. I went to the test without any preparation.

The second part was verbal. There were 45 questions. When I saw the questions I felt as if I am attending a written test for a call center. It was very tough for me. I could not answer a single question. All people say that the verbal part is very easy. But I felt it most difficult. I was not able to answer or guess a single question. Then I kept the question paper aside & I started ticking the answers randomly without reading the questions. I think I got 0(ZERO) in the verbal part.

After the test they said that the result will be announced at 4:30 PM. Then I went to my house. I was sure that I will not be short listed. But simply I went to see the result. I was not short listed.

According to me infosys test is a pure luck. Nothing is dependent on us. I just don't know why they expect such a hi-fi English form technical students. I don't know weather they are on development side or call center. According to me they should change the test pattern. Instead of 45 verbal questions they could give 10 verbal questions & 35 technical questions related to C, C++, Java, Unix, Linux, VB, Oracle etc.

I am good in English. But not best. I am poor in English. But not worst. So finally what I feel is infosys test process is worst. I don't know what you feel. I just gave my opinion. It depends on your mentality.

Any way "Best Of LUCK" to all of you.

1. Raju was imprisoned for 60 days. He was lazy. The police told him that he will give 7 Rs/- for every working day. The police said that Raju has to pay 3 Rs/- for every non-working day. At last Raju got 170 Rs/-. Find the number of working days.

Answer: Working Days: 35

Non-Working days: 25

Solution: Let the No. of working days be X

Let the No. of non-working days be Y

Given,

X + Y = 60; --------------------------- (1)

7(X) - 3(Y) = 170; ------------------- (2)

Solving equations (1) & (2)

7(60 - Y) - 3Y = 170;

420 - 7Y - 3Y = 170;

10Y = 250; Y = 25; X = 35;

2. There are 3 thieves A, B & C. Each of them theft one animal. The stolen animals were mule, horse & camel. Police caught them & enquired. They gave the following statements:

A: C stole horse

B: A stole mule & C stole camel

C: Both A & B are lying. I dint steal any animal

It is known that the man who steals the horse always tells truth & the man who steals the camel always tells the lies.

Answer: A stole Mule;

B stole Horse;

C stole Camel;

Solution: The possible cases are:

5

6

Let us start solving the problem from the 3rd statement. C says that he dint steal any animal. But it is given that Every one theft one and only animal. So C must be lying. So C cannot steal Horse because the boy who steals horse Always tells truth. So cases (2) & (5) can be eliminated.

Now consider the 1st statement:

A says that C stole horse. If C stole horse, then he cannot Lie. But C is lying. Hence A is lying. So A cannot steal Horse. So the cases (3) & (4) can be eliminated.

Now consider the 2nd statement:

The only option left is B is telling truth. So according to B,A stole mule & C stole camel. This should be true.

3. Series1: 1, 2, 6, 12, 20, 12

Series2: 3, 4, 13, 24, 33, 44, _

What is the next element of the above Series?

Answer: Series1: 6

Series2: 63 or 73

Solution:

Series1: After 20 the series is going in the reverse Order. So the next term will be equal to The 3rd term. i.e. 6.

Series2: There are two possible cases:

Odd terms are increasing by 10, 20, 30,..Odd terms are increasing by 10, 20, 40,..

So the next term is either 63 or 73

4. One day I was going somewhere. I found Charity1, Charity2, Charity3. For Charity1 I gave half of the money what I have plus 1 Rs/-. Then for Charity2 I gave half of the money that was remaining With me plus 2 Rs/-. Then for Charity3 I gave half of the money that Was remaining with me plus 3 Rs/-. Finally I was left with Only 1 Rs/-. What amount I had initially.

Answer: 42

Solution: Let the initial amount be X;

((X / 2) + 1) + (((X - 2) / 4) + 2) + (((X - 10) / 8) + 3) + 1 = X;

7X + 42 = 8X; X = 42;

6. A software engineer starts his walking at 3 PM from point A, he Walks at the rate of 4km/hr in plains and 3km/hr in hill to reach The point B. During his return journey, he walks at the rate of 6km/hr in hill and 4km/hr in plains and reaches point A at 9.P.M.

What is the total distance traveled by him?

Answer: 12km

Solution: Let the distance traveled on planes be X;

Let the distance traveled on hill be Y; w.k.t,

Time = distance / speed; By using the above formula:

X/4 + Y/3 + Y/6 + X/4 = 6

(X + Y) / 2 = 6km

X + Y = 12 km

4 boys B, J, H, and C were playing rope game. Two boys on each side. It was known that even though it was tough, J alone can pull B & C. If B & J are on one side and H & C are another side, neither of them won. But if B & C change their positions, H & B would win. Write the names of the boys in ascending order of their strength.

Answer: C

B

H

J

Solution: It is given that J can defeat B & C. So J is stronger than B & C

J > BJ > C

If B& J are partners and H & C are partners

B&J = H&C

If C & B change their positions

H&B > J&C

Finally, we can conclude that

J > H, B, C H > B, CB > C A man sells cloths. He sells the cloths for 40% more than the cost price. But the tape he is using to measure the cloths is little smaller & longer than it has to be. Thus the man was able to make only 39% profit. Find the increased or decreased length of the tape.

I dint read this question properly. So I don't remember. I dint solve it. It was time up
