TCS PATTERN & INTERVIEW - 08 MAY 2010 - KOLKATA
I am Mukund Bihari from Asansol Engineering College, Asansol. I am from electronics and communication engineering department. I am giving you the questions of TCS IT infrastructure services which came to my college on 8th may, 2010 for aptitude test and interview was held on 6th june, 2010.
This time there was a new pattern in which only puzzles were asked. There was no any aptitude, reasoning or technical questions.
35 puzzles were asked in this section. I do know from which book these puzzles were asked, I tried hard find it but I didnt' succeed. Following are some question which I can recall for you:
1) There was a scientist who after doing research, found that color of skin of animals vary with change in distance.One day he started to chase a beer. He walked 1 mile towards north, then turned and walked 1 mile towards east and then caught the beer and radio-ribboned the beer Then he left the beer at that spot and returned to his base-station taking a turn towards south (walked 1 mile towards south). Then what was the color of beer at that spot?
a) white b) brown c) black d) grey
I was astonished to see this question and i am unable to think the logic behind this question. There were several long puzzles just to puzzle you. The relevant data was in the last few lines, rest initial lines were mere story of mathematicians like ayrabhatta, bhaskrachrya etc.
Total time given for aptitude test was 60 mins. The result was declared on 20th may and 37 qualified out of 200 (approx). Cut off was high, around 15-16 correct questions only.
Interveiew was held on 6th of June 2010 before which PPT was given. The interview consisted of two rounds:
1)Technical + HR
