**2)Aptitude**

There are 40 questions... please read the previous papers thoroughly ... pattern remains same only just data is changed...

for me many repeated questions came.. some of my friends got very new questions oly few repeated

The questions i have remembered are...

**(1)**Units of basic quantities:

a.(energy * time * time) / (mass * dist)= distance

b.(momentum * velocity) / (force * time) = velocity

(Momentum*Velocity)/(Acceleration * distance ) find units. ans mass

**(2)**@@+25-++@16, where @ denotes square and + denotes square root. ans=621

**(3)**A=11010101

b=10101010

c=10001001

find the decimal value of (AU(b-c))

**(4)**if M=mod, R=round, T=truncate then find the value of

M(463,5)+R(3.3)+T(7.9)+R(5.7) ANS:19

**(5)**find the singular matrix?? There will be 4 options.. of 2x2 matrix.. to find singular matrix just find the determinant value. If the value is zero that will be the singular matrix.. easy one..

**(6)**Pick out the ODD ones:

a. HTTP b. ARP c. SNMP d. SAP ANS:SAP

a. linux b. windows NT c. sql server d. unix ANS: SQL server

**(7)**194 base 10= ____ base 5 ANS: 1234

Or it may ask like

**(8)**Venn Diagram kind of questins.

Some know English, some French, some german.. how many know two languages.. easy one..

**(9)**Code interchanging, a word is given if the letters are reversed find the nth letter from right to legt..

The word like

Eg: DESTABILIZATION ANS: T

**(10)**Which is a/not a power of 2 or 3.

Power of 4 Ans-4096

**(11)**A man, a woman, and a child can do a piece of work in 6 days. Man only can do it in 24 days. Woman can do it in 16 days and in how many days child can do the same work? Ans 16

**(12)**A is twice efficient than B. A and B can both work together to complete a work in 7 days. Then find in how many days A alone can complete the work? 10.5

**(13)**My flight takes of at 2am from a place at 18N 10E and landed 10 Hrs later at a place with coordinates 36N70W. What is the local time when my plane landed?

6:00 am b) 6:40am c) 7:40 d) 7:00 e) 8:00

Sol) The destination place is 80 degree west to the starting place. Hence the time difference between these two places is 5 hour 20 min. (=24hr*80/360).

When the flight landed, the time at the starting place is 12 noon (2 AM + 10 hours).

Hence, the time at the destination place is 12 noon - 5:20 hours = 6: 40 AM

**(14)**Three companies are working independently and receiving the savings 20%, 30%, 40%. If the companies work combinely, what will be their net savings?

suppose total income is 100

so amount x is getting is 80

y is 70

z =60

total=210

but total money is 300

300-210=90

so they are getting 90 rs less

90 is 30% of 300 so they r getting 30% discount

**(15)**If G(0) = -1 G(1)= 1 and G(N)=G(N-1) - G(N-2) then what is the value of G(6)?

ans: -1

bcoz g(2)=g(1)-g(0)=1+1=2

g(3)=1

g(4)=-1

g(5)=-2

g(6)=-1

**(16)**If VXUPLVH is written as SURMISE, what is SHDVD?

**(17)**I lost Rs.58 in two races. My second race loss is Rs.5 more than the first race. My friend lost Rs.3 more than me in the second race. What is the amount lost by my friend in the second race?

**(18)**Match the following:

a. Brake CAR -> a type of

b mother women -> a superset of

c. Ceagle DOG -> A part of

d.mushroom vegetable -> Not a

very easy

sorry others I forgot..

U may get dummy questions.. pl don’t attend that.. for a question if there is no answer In any of the option.. leave that question if ur fully confident in that.. I got 3 dummy questions.. I left those questions..

If u don’t know the logic of a particular question don’t leave those questions.. attend those.. it may be correct by ur guess..

**3) Critical reasoning**

Concentrate on GRE barrons 12 edition’s model test papers..

I got one para as it is frm gre barrons.. see all the analytical sections in each model test.. mug it up.. may get one atleast..

Other 2 paras are general.. one is blood relation para.. have a good knowledge in solving those.. practice.. know the relations like.. nephew, niece.. etc.. draw a relation tree starting frm grand father to grand son.. it will be easy to answer the given questions..

Time management is very important in any Online test.. always have the habit of finishing 10 min before.. don’t urge urself and finish it soon.. I got selected in 1st round.. The next day on 19.6.07 Tuesday..

**TECH interview…**

Tell abt urself..

He asked general questions like.. wats the difference b/w C and C++

He asked what is a functions, arrays, structures.. then asked me to write the syntax of a structure..

Then he asked about data structures.. asked about difference b/w linked list and queue..

He asked about pointers.. asked me to write a small logic in pointers.. prepare well in pointer side..

Then he concentrated on my resume.. asked about my project.. if u had done any project and u specified in ur resume means.. have a good knowledge about your project..

I told lots of matter from my project that took too much time for me..

Since we used Web sphere, Eclipse, DB2 and JSP technology in our team project.. the HR person asked about these technologies which he don’t know..

I am very comfortable to answer the single HR person..

It was so easy for me to add many points and I was so confident..

That’s it… After 2 minutes they called me for the HR interview..

**HR interview**

Here also.. Tell about yourself…

He asked about my achievements in college..

Here too they asked OOP concepts.. inheritance encapsulation etc..

About polymorphism etc..

He questioned about my percentage deviation by comparing 12th mark with my BE percentage..

I answered him.. I involved in many extracurricular activities

then he asked about my extracurricular activities.. my hobbies..

Here too the HR person questioned about my project.. since I am very confident I told every thing about the project..

He asked what makes u different from others.. why should I select u…

He asked r u comfortable to go anywhere..

The tech HR gone for approx 30 min and HR interview gone for 25 min..

Be bold in answering the HR panel.. relax ur self before attending the interview don’t be tensed

Now I am a part of TCS..

ALL THE BEST GUYS……..
