8)A 1 k.m long wire is held by n poles. if one pole is removed, the length of gap is increased by 5/3 meters. What is the number of poles initially.
9) andrew beat jim, Davis,elite lost to jim, jack was beaten by jim. Jim beats davis. elite is not last. (sorry i forgot exact order )
10) one 8 mark question based on language they speak. There are four persons. Each persons speaking only two language

Jacob William Jim Andrew
This section also has cutoff. one who know grammar and English language, can easily make.
1)passage and questions based on that
2) choosing wrong statement
3) choosing correct statement
4 )tense filling (like.. is sitting, was sitting, sit )
5) fill in the blanks with correct phrase.
1)64 condition given : Lusie age should fall between 54-70
suppose if she has 8 sons .
each son has 7 brother
each sons has 7 sons (condition given :as many brothers they have)
8 sons having 56 sons
adding 56 + 8 =64
3) actually I got 120 for the given data.
I forgot the figures, but i give u the step how to calculate
g - grass at the beginning r - rate at which grass grows, per day y - rate at which one cow eats grass, per day
n - no of cows to eat the grass in 90 days
formula: g+d*r=n*d*y ( I got this from old infosys paper)
g + 30*r = 50 * 30 * y -->(1)
g + 60*r = 30 * 60 * y--->(2)
g + d*r = 60 * d * y --->(3)
substitute g in (2)
substitute y in (3)
5) yellow (lie)
6) 12 K.M
T1 + T2=6 (3 to 9.p.m)
T1-time during forward journey
T2-time during return journey
D1/4+D1/3 =T1 (forward time)
D1/4+D2/6 =T2 (return time)
Adding we will get D1+D2=12 km
(i tried by assuming y=1 or y=2,(y-carry) i easily got)
8) 26 poles
if n poles
(n-1) gaps of each 1000/(n-1) width
if n-1 poles
(n-2) gaps of each 1000/(n-2) width
so number of poles should be 26
10) easy analytical u can solve it.
I cleared written and attend interview on the next day.
