These questions are of similar nature and require you to remember a simple equation to solve these.<br /> <b>Question 1</b><br /> Sharmila Begum, a tea merchant has two varieties of tea one costing Rs.62 per kg. and the other costing Rs.72 per kg. In what ratio she should mix these two varieties such that the mixture is worth Rs.64.50 per kg.<br /> a) 3:1 b) 2:1 c)1:3 d)none of these.<br /> <b>Answer : </b> a) 3 : 1<br /> Solution :<br /> Let us assume that the ratio of new mixture be a : b so that the new price becomes Rs. C. (in our case X = 64.5). Let us assume C1 be the cost per Kg of I variety of tea and C2 be the cost per Kg of the II variety. (In this problem, C1 = 62 and C2 = 72)<br />Then we have, a.C1 + b.C2 / (a + b) = C<br />Substituting C1 = 62, C2 = 72 and C = 64.5, we get<br />62a + 72b / a + b = 64.5 ---- eq 1<br /> Now let us substitute the value of options one by one in this equation to check which one satisfies this equation.<br />Option I : a = 3, b = 1<br />Substitute a, b values in eq 1 we get,<br />62. 3 + 72.1 / 4 = 64.5<br />Or 258 = 258<br />Thus, option I satisfies the equation and hence it is the correct answer.<br /><br /><a name='more'></a><br /> <b>Question 2</b><br /> Vinayaga Sait & son are the leading sugar dealers in Kolkata, a place known for milk sweets. Vinayaga Sait wanted to know how many kilogram of sugar costing Rs.18 per kg can be mixed with 27 kg of sugar costing Rs. 14 per kg such that there may be a gain of 10% on selling the mixture at Rs.18.48 per kg.?<br /> a) 63 kg b)72 kg c)81 kg d) none of these.<br /> <b> Answer : </b> a) 63 kg.<br /> Solution :<br /> Selling price of 1 kg of mixture = Rs. 18.48 at 10% profit<br /> Cost price of 1kg of mixture = 100/110 x 18.48= Rs.16.80<br />Take a look at the solution for previous question. We are again going to use the familiar equation<br />a.C1 + b.C2 / (a + b) = C -> eq 1<br /> Here, C = 16.8, C1 = 18, C2 = 14.<br />Also, a/b = Weight of I variety of Sugar/ Weight of II variety of sugar<br /> a/b = x/27 , where x = weight of I variety of Sugar<br /> Substituting values, eq 1 becomes,<br />18a + 14b = 16.8(a + b)<br />Divide by b on both sides<br />18a/b + 14 = 16.8(a/b + 1)<br />But a/b = x/27<br /> Therefore, 18x/27 + 14 = 16.8(x/27 + 1)<br />Multiply by 27 on both sides,<br />18x + 378 = 16.8(x + 27)<br />18x – 16.8x = 453.6 – 378<br />1.2x = 75.6<br />x = 75.6/1.2 = 63 Kg<br /> <b>Question 3</b><br /> Karimlal Sait is running a famous rice shop and he consults his Manager to find out that in what ratio must rice at Rs.9.30 per kg be mixed with rice at Rs.10.80 per kg so that the mixture be worth Rs.10 per kg?<br /> a. 7 : 8 b. 8 : 7 c. 31 : 36 d. 36 : 31<br /> <b>Answer : </b> b) 8 : 7<br /> Solution :<br /> This question is very similar to the first question.<br />Let us again use our familiar equation : a.C1 + b.C2 / (a + b) = C -> eq 1<br />Values as given in question values are C1 = 9.30, C2 = 10.80, C = 10.<br />Substituting above values in eq 1 we get,<br />9.3a + 10.8b = 10(a + b) -> eq 2<br /> Consider Option I where a = 7 and b = 8.<br />Substituting these values in eq 2 we get<br />9.3 x 7 + 10.8 x 8 = 10 (7 + 8)<br />151.5 != 150.<br />Hence, option I does not satisfy equation no 2. Hence option I is not correct.<br /> Consider Option II where a = 8 and b = 7<br />Substituting these values in eq 2 we get<br />9.3 x 8 + 10.8 x 7 = 10 (8 + 7)<br />150 = 150<br />Option II satisfies the equation no 2 perfectly and hence it is the right answer.</div>War10ckhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/00222845856620761703noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8902456563475429996.post-7685482687963133532010-11-17T03:31:00.001-08:002012-02-22T11:42:20.452-08:00INFOSYS INTERVIEW PUZZLES WITH ANSWERS<span style="font-size: small;"><br /><br />1.

India does not need any further nuclear test for weaponisation and for acquiring a minimum deterrent. If we sign the CTBT now, there will be every possibility of the American Government supporting India to get a permanent seat in the United Nations Security Council.

Hope this helps in your preparation<br /> <b>Question 1</b><br /> Rahman Khan wanted to do exercise seriously. He started from his house and went eastwards 2 km. He turned right and proceeded running 25 km. He took rest for a few minutes there. Now he took a left turn and walked 15 km and stopped. He spent his night in that place and thereafter he started walking towards north 18 km. Here he took a right turn and ran for 7 km and reached his uncle’s house. How far is Rahman Khan’s uncle’s house from his house?<br /> a) 24 km b) 20 km c) 16 km d) 25 km<br /> <b>Answer : </b> d) 25 km.<br /> Solution :<br /> <img src="http://www.careersvalley.com/images/direction1.jpg" /><br /><a name='more'></a><br />Apply pythagoras theorem.<br /> We have to find out AF.<br /> Sq. root of 7<sup>2</sup> + 24<sup>2</sup> = 25.<br /> <b>Question 2</b><br /> Prabhu Deva danced and walked 10 m south from his house. Then he turned left and jogged 25 m and turned left and ran 40 m. He took rest there for ten minutes. After ten minutes he turned right and walked 5 m to reach his Dance College. In which direction is the dance college from Prabhu Deva’s house?<br /> a) South East b) North c) North East d) North west<br /> <b>Answer : </b> c) North East.<br /> Solution :<br /> <img src="http://www.careersvalley.com/images/direction2.jpg" /><br />Note : Actually, this is a simple question where there will be NO calculations involved, but a simple direction assessment is good enough. In some cases, you might start working out the distances which could eat up your time. Hence, it is important that you read the question well, understand the scope of the question and optimize your solving effort accordingly.<br /> It can be seen that the dance college is in North East direction of Prabhu Deva’s house.<br /> <b>Question 3</b><br /> Samuel Johnson and Ajith were standing 40 metres away. Samuel Johnson walked 5 metres towards east and Ajith walked 5 metres towards west. Samuel Johnson turned his left and walked 20 metres and Ajith turned right and walked 20 metres. Now Samuel Johnson turned to his left and walked further 5 metres. Ajith turned to his left and walked 10 metres. What is the distance between Samuel Johnson and Ajith?<br /> a) 25 m b) 40 m c) 50 m d) none of these.<br /> <b>Answer :</b> a) 25 m<br /> Solution :<br /> <img src="http://www.careersvalley.com/images/direction3.jpg" /><br /> The entire travel paths of Samuel and Ajith are drawn as a diagram where the travel path of Samuel is ABCD and that of Ajith is A1B1C1D1.<br /> Final distance between DD1 = initial distance - C1D1 - CD = AA1 - C1D1 - CD = 40 - 10 - 5 = 25 <br /> </div></div>War10ckhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/00222845856620761703noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8902456563475429996.post-4924914797845053272012-02-22T11:14:00.003-08:002012-02-22T11:41:15.941-08:00Wipro Practice Equation Solving Questions<div dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;" trbidi="on"><div class="article">Below are three easy questions requiring you to formulate and solve equations. <br /> <b>Question 1</b><br /> A gentleman had ‘Rs.P’ with him. He wanted to distribute this amount to his five sons. He wanted his youngest son to get Rs.20 more than his fourth son. He gave his third son Rs.20 less than what he gave to his fourth son. His second son got Rs.20 more than his first son and Rs.20 less than what his third son got. How much did his first son get?<br /> a) (P-200)/5 b) (P- 120)/4 c) (P-200)/4 d) none of these.<br /> <b>Answer : </b> a) (P-200)/5<br /> Solution :<br /> Let his first son get x.<br />Then second son will get x +20.<br />Third son will get x+40<br />Fourth son will get x+60<br />Fifth son will get x+80 (youngest son)<br /> So x + (x+20) + (x+40) + (x+60) + (x+80) = P<br /> 5x + 200 = P<br /> X = (P – 200) / 5<br /><br /><a name='more'></a><br /> <b>Question 2</b><br /> A received 20% more salary than B. C received 20% more than A. D received 20% more than C. If D received salary of Rs.34560, how much did A receive as salary?<br /> a) Rs.22000 b) Rs.24000 c) Rs.26000 d) Rs.20000<br /> <b>Answer : </b> b) Rs.24000<br /> Solution :<br /> Let B receive Rs.100 as salary.<br /> Then A will receive 20% more than B's salary. That is, A will receive, 120/100 x B's salary = 120/100 x 100 = Rs. 120<br /> Thus, A will receive Rs.120<br /> C will receive 20% more than A's salary. That is, C will receive, 120/100 x A's salary = 120/100 x 120 = Rs. 144<br /> Thus, C will receive Rs.144<br /> D will receive 20% more than C's salary. That is, D will receive, 120/100 x C's salary = 120/100 x 144 = Rs. 172.8<br /> Thus, D will receive Rs.172.80<br /> Now, we will have to find out the salary of A if D receives 34560 as salary. From our above assumption of B receiving Rs.100, we can see that D will receive Rs. 172.8 when A receives Rs.120. Our task is now to find A's salary when D receives 34560.<br /> <pre> D's Salary A's Salary<br /> 172.8 120<br /> 34560 ?</pre>A's Salary when D receives 34560 = 34560 x 120 divided by 172.80 = Rs. 24000<br /> <b>Question 3</b><br /> Agarwal has twice as much money as Edgar. Edgar has 50% more than Prasad has. If the average of the amounts they have is Rs.1100, how much money Agarwal has?<br /> a) Rs. 1800 B) Rs.2100 c) Rs.800 d) none of these.<br /> <b>Answer : </b>a) Rs. 1800<br /> Solution :<br /> Let Prasad has Rs.P<br />Then Edgar will have 50% more than prasad. That is, Edgar will have 150/100 x Prasad's Amount = 150/100 x P = 3/2 P<br />Agarwal will have twice as much as Edgar. Therefore Agarwal willl have 3/2P x 2 = 3P<br />Average of their amounts = Sum of their amounts / 3 = Rs. 1100<br />Or Sum of their amounts = 1100 x 3 = 3300<br />Or 3P + 3/2P + P = 3300<br />11P/2 = 3300<br />P = Rs. 600<br />Agarwal's amount = 3P = 3 x 600 = Rs. 1800<br /> </div></div>War10ckhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/00222845856620761703noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8902456563475429996.post-31709124060967701272010-11-17T03:37:00.001-08:002012-02-22T11:41:15.930-08:00WIPRO Latest Campus Placement Paper Pattern At JNTU College of Engineering Anantapur : June 2010<div align="center"> <img alt="http://placementpapers.net/helpingroot/images/promo/Wipro-Logo.jpg" src="http://placementpapers.net/helpingroot/images/promo/Wipro-Logo.jpg" /><b><br />WIPRO Latest Campus Placement Paper Pattern At JNTU College of Engineering Anantapur : June 2010</b></div><b>Company Name: </b>WIPRO<br /><b>Type : </b>Fresher, Job Interview<br />Wipro Conducted Placement Drive in JNTU College of Engineering Anantapur on 17th of June 2010.<br />Hi to all, the selection process is of three rounds:<br />1.

management is very important<br /><br />One question was time consuming for me and<br /><br />that was from the puzzle test so be prepared wid all 7 models of PUZZLE TEST<br /><br />we had DATA INTETERPRETATION and as i couldnt solve the 1st question properly i had to solve this<br /><br />so dont waste time for the questions u cannot solve instead do the one which is easier n refer(r s aggarwal quantitative aptitude for this)<br /><br />mostly bar charts,tables and pi charts are given(we were given a table)<br /><br />5 questions were from FIGURES<br /><br />we were given 3 figures followed by a '?'<br /><br />in this the 1st two figures are have some relationship b/w them n based on that we hav to pick an answer figure which matches the 3rd figure<br /><br />this was an easy one<br /><br />5 questions were from SYLLOGISM<br /><br />this was a bit different from wht i thought<br /><br />they give 5 statements naming them a,b,c,d,e<br /><br />then the answers choices were like 3 were paired eg:1)abe 2)dbe 3)aeb 4)dae<br /><br />n we hav to find the pair which corretly matchs it if u do r.s aggarwal n r perfect wid all rules of syllogism i dont thing this would b tough<br /><br />5 questions were of DATA SUFFICIENCY type<br /><br />i felt this was easy<br /><br />the questions i remember were from mensuration,length of train,ages of people<br /><br />thts it in this part, we were not told the cutoff but i think its better to try for atleast 20 out of 30<br /><br />VERBAL:<br /><br />40 questions were there<br /><br />i scored 24 marks<br /><br />there were 2 RCs one was of 2 pages i attempted in the last 5 min but i did it well i believe<br /><br />then we had<br /><br />correction of sentences<br /><br />fill in the blank with correct word<br /><br />around 5to 6 passages for which we had go choose the correct summary<br /><br />u hav to read these very fast<br /><br />time management is very very imp. here<br /><br />do not waste even one min looking here and there coz tht one min costs a loooooooot<br /><br />finally i was called my name for HR n i was on the top of the world<br /><br />i actually got thru wipro also but the joy of getting into a dream company is just great<br /><br />one should definately experience it<br /><br />HR:<br /><br />One important thing is tht dont think tht its just HR<br /><br />u should always remember tht there is one more hurdle to pass<br /><br />in my 1st interview i hav learnt a lot "wht to do n wht not to do in the HR round" so if u hav not yet been placed then first analyze why tht has happened n try to improve on that coz there r huge oppertunities in this world<br /><br />some way or the other u can get thru once u improve on ur flaws<br /><br />so be confident and dont be

their suggestions at the frehshersworld.com....we had our infosys campus placement today at Muffakham jah college of engg and technology , it was an oncampus for us....<br /><br />At first the pre placement talk will be given , please do listen to that carefully and if possible jot down some necessary points...i would rather suggest u to learn about the history of inofosys from the wikipedia.org or u can go to the infosys website....<br /><br />After the preplacement talk we were asked to fill up the forms , the details of that will be given by the ppl over there...but do fill ur %'s correctly as they may later on verify and they even take the signature from u stating that all the data written on that form is true...<br /><br />QUANTITATIVE EXAM: 30 questions 40 minutes<br />1) The quant paper was average , the first question was a shocker and it was a big paragraph in which a question related to the card game "flash"<br />was asked(sorry i dont remember)<br />2) Questions 5 to 10 were on the figures , 3 figures will be given and u have to spot the next figure.<br />U can get these questions from classifications chapter in R S Agarwal(non verbal reasoning)<br />3) Questions 10-15 were on data sufficiency(RS Agarwal section 1 verbal and non verbal)<br />4) Questions 15-20 were on data interpretation ,some pie chart was given and questions were asked on that.(data interpretation RS agarwal<br />quantitative aptitude book)<br />5) Questions 20-25 were on questions like u need to contruct a table and fill in the date to answer such question.(I would suggest u to do the<br />entire puzzle test chapter in the RS agarwal verbal n non verbal reasoning book perfectly)<br />6) Questions 25-30 were syllogisms, they were not the regular syllogism's like 2 statements will be given and u need to derive a conclusion , 6<br />statements were given and u need to find out the corect combination of the sentences which form a sense.<br />These type of problems can be found in RS agrawal(verbal n non verbal ssection 2 -logic) do all of them.<br /><br />Blood relations,number ranking sequence ,series , cubes and dices are very important although they were not asked for us....<br /><br />ENGLISH EXAM: 40 questions 30 mins<br />If ur basics are strong then no need to go through any books , yeah but if u want to have practice then try to solve the problems of wren and martin grammer n composition<br />(prepositions, tenses,direct and indirect speech,conditions statements)<br />2 RC's will be given , dont start with this , time will not be sufficient...<br />start with other sections like sentence corection(10 Q's) , fill with appropriate word (10 Q's), deriving conclusion from the passages(10 Q's).<br />some people wuld suggest to solve CAT problems for this but i personally feel that the questions given were not even close to the CAT standard....they were very simple.<br />But yeah u can go thru the correct usage of the tenses and prepostions from the CAT material...<br />We waited for 2 hrs and after that the results were declared , i was shortlisted..<br /><br />HR INTERVIEW:<br />Try to stay very cool and calm , i know that it is very tough but just try to b e relaxed. Don't panic b4 the interviewer , just consider them as ur frends or consider him as a person who doesnt know anything and u are explaining to him!! Keep smiling and be confident , they look at ur confidence....They will have a look at ur resume and then ask questions from them , will give u a sheet of paper in which there will be 5 topics u have to choose one and speak on that topic , one real time problem will be given and how do u face that...and finally puzzles will be asked..<br />be prepared with topics like IT companies growth , which sectors in india are considered to develop in the next few years....If u have organized any event then they will ask u about that event n the difficulties faced in that event and how did u overcome it?? few puzzles will be given like<br /><br />1)how can u make 5 one rupee coins to touch each other...every coin shud touch the other 4 coins...<br />2) U are given a 3 containers 20 liters , 5 liters and 3 liters and the 20 litre can is full of milk , u need to get 4 liters of milk somehow by using all the containers..<br />3) 6 match sticks will be given u need to contruct a structure such that it has 4 equilateral triangles...ans is contruct a pyramid with base as triangle<br /><br />Guys be careful about ur hobbies , one of my frends said that his hobby was volleyball and immediately the HR person asked doubts like what is the weight of the ball , dimentions of the court and height of net etc.....the interviewer is just trying to annoy u by asking these questions , dont panic and say confidently that u dont know!<br />or else u learn every thing about ur hobbies....I am a fan of tennis so b4 going to the interview i learned that weight of the tennis ball is 57g and height of the net is 36 inches in the middle and 42 at the ends , the different courts and etc....<br />go to wikipedia.org to find out more information<br /><br /><span style="color: #3333ff; font-weight: bold;">PAPER ON 26th JUNE AT HYDERABAD</span><br /><br />hi, This isVAMSI iam from biomedical engg,JBIT,i got selected for infosys,here is the whole test paper.There will be two rounds one is the written test and the other is HR.In written test thr will be two sections:<br /><br />1.General aptitude<br />2.Verbal<br /><br />the aptitude section is given 40 min to solve and the verbal is given 30 min. if u prepare well for the exam u can solve aptitude section in less than 40 min<br /><br />1.In general aptitude the first q is on cubes,the q goes like:There is a cube of size 15cm and is cut equally into smaller cubes of 3cm each and is painted with red ,yellow and green on opposite sides based on these answer the following q<br />(1)how many number of cubes will be there with no sides painted??<br />(2)how many number of cubes will be there with 1 side painted???<br />(3)how many number of cubes will be there with 2 sides painted<br />(4)how many number of cubes will be there with 3 different colours painted on there sides?and one mre q i couldnt rememberbut it was an easy one,i solved it in less than 2min.<br /><br />2.this is to find the missing figure.one can solve this easily by jst looking at it.its very easy.<br />3.this one is on data sufficiency.even this is easy,.concentrate on SI,CI,profit and loss,geometry.<br />4.DI.this is the difficult section ive come across..do this at last.the q goes like ,there is an hydropower station ,the water is stored in the reservoir and is usedto run the turbines ,the water in it is drained bewen 5pm and 8pm andreplenished between 5am to 10am ,the next day and the content in it is measured at 11am.and below a tabular column is given with some unknown parameters a,b,c,d,e,f,g.we need to find them.it si very time consuming<br /><br />5.this one is a puzzle..u find this type of problems in VERBAL AND NONVERBAL REASONING BY RS AGARWAL..go through "puzzle test" exercise in it.this one is also easy but a bit tricky<br />6.this one is based on syllogisms...goin through syllogsm exercise in RS agarwal jst gives u an idea on how to solve,but the one u get in infosys exam are pretty different from those in RSagarwal ,there is no necessity to remember those 9 rules dont waste time by doin so..the model which we came across in the exam is like:<br /><br />they will give u five statements a,b,c,d,e. and below 4 options each option consists of three statements like abc or adc or bcd .we need to find the option basing on the condition that the last statement should be derived form first two.even this section is easy..<br /><br />2. Verbal...this section is very easy and needs no kind of preparation.u can do it if u r good at grammar..<br /><br />next is HR..they jst see how u r responding,ur communication skills.most of the interviewers asked abt situational q and puzzles...it doesnt matter whether u solve it or not..but don give up keep on trying....if u get a good score in written test ur chance of gettin into infy wll b high.<br /><br />HOPE,THIS PAPER WILL HELP U..........<br /><br /><span style="color: #3333ff;

Below are few simple questions that should be answered with ease. <br /> <h3 style="color: #336699;">Placement Question 1</h3>If a shopkeeper accidentally sells a pen at double its actual selling price, his profit increases 4 fold. Then he realizes his mistake and sells other pens at their original selling price. Find his actual profit percentage.<br /> <b>Answer 1</b><br /> let the original selling price be sp and the cost price be cp.<br /> If he sells the pen at double the selling price, his new profit will be 2sp - cp.<br />His actual profit should had been (sp - cp). But his accidental rising of the selling price resulted in a four fold increase of the original profit which is 4 X (sp - cp).<br /> Hence, 2sp - cp = 4 X (sp - cp)<br /> Therefore sp = (3/2)cp.<br /> Actual profit percentage = (sp - cp)/cp % = 50%<br /><a name='more'></a><br /> <h3 style="color: #336699;">Placement Question 2</h3>Consider three brothers Ram, Ravi and Rahul. Consider Ram to be taller than Ravi by 10% and Rahul is taller than Ravi by 30%. Now, by how much percentage Rahul is taller than Ram.<br /> <b>Answer 2</b><br /> Let heights of Ram, Ravi and Rahul be p,q and r respectively. Then as per the conditions given in the question :<br /> p = 110/100r and q = 130/100r<br /> Ratios of heights of q and r will be (130/100r)/(110/100r) = 13/11.<br /> Hence Rahul will be 13/11% taller than that of Ram.<br /> <h3 style="color: #336699;">Placement Question 3</h3>John swims in a river at an effective speed of 8 Kilometers/hr. The velocity of the stream against John is measured to be 2 Kilometers/hr. Now, how much his effective speed will increase when he swims in the direction of the stream.<br /> <b>Answer 3</b><br /> Since John opposes the stream speed to achieve an effective speed of 8 Km/hr, original physical speed of John would be 8 + 2 = 10 Kilometers/hr. In downstream, if he swims with his original speed his effective speed will become 10 + 2 = 12 Kilometers/hr. This is 4 Kilometers/hr more than that of the initial effective speed 8 Kilometers/hr.<br /> Hence his speed would increase by 4/8 % = 50%.</div>War10ckhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/00222845856620761703noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8902456563475429996.post-23091686314182333872012-02-22T11:17:00.003-08:002012-02-22T11:39:21.056-08:003 Accenture Practice Probability Questions<div dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;" trbidi="on"><div class="article">Below are three probability based questions to practice for Accenture papers.<br /> <b>Question 1</b><br /> A box contains 4 blue and 5 white balls and another box contains 5 blue and 4 white balls. One ball is to be drawn from either of the two boxes.

Below are three sample questions.<br /> <b>Interview Question 1</b><br /> Can you tell advantages of RDBMS over simple custom DBMS ?<br /> Answer 1<br /> Any data storage in any manageable structure can be called a DBMS. But, it is the responsibility of the programmer to maintain the data integrity and to take care of constraints. But on RDBMS, the system takes care of almost all of the data integrity requirements. Hence, the programmer could focus more on business logic rather than worrying about data integrity much.<br /> <b>Interview Question 2</b><br /> Which is the layer of an Operating System that takes care of the system resource usage at the lowest level ?<br /> Answer 2<br /> Answer is Kernel Layer.<br /> <b>Interview Question 3</b><br /> Can you tell any two advantages of stored procedures ?<br /> Answer 3<br /> Stored procedures can replace complex program segments requiring extensive SQL statements being executed from the code, hence they can make the application more manageable. Another advantage is that the usage of stored procedures can significantly reduce the network and bandwidth usage. This is because of the reduction in the number of requests and responses between business layer and database layer.</div></div>War10ckhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/00222845856620761703noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8902456563475429996.post-68039312693087020802012-02-22T11:21:00.002-08:002012-02-22T11:38:50.715-08:00Microsoft Placement Papers<div dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;" trbidi="on"><br /><span style="font-family: verdana; font-size: x-small;">15th at Mumbai.<br />The paper was easy except the programming question<br />part which was very lengthy compared to the time<br />alloted.<br /><br />I m giving below the paper pattern. I m not very good<br />at remembering the questions exactly so i m just<br />giving the overview of the test.<br />There were four sections. All were separate. The time<br />alloted as well as the question papers also were<br />separate for each section.<br /><br />Section I : English language test -25 Qstns.-20<br />Mints.<br /><br />It contained usual & easy english language qustns.</span><br /><a name='more'></a><span style="font-family: verdana; font-size: x-small;"><br />like prepositions, articles, antonyms-synonyms etc.<br />There were two paragraphs. One was about types of<br />networks & another was about CGI scripting. There were<br />some easy qstns. asking info. from the para.<br /><br />Section II : Mental ability -25 Qstns.-30 Mints.<br /><br />It contained qstns. related to union & intersection<br />like there r N no. of students in a class, S no. of<br />them passed in 3 subjects, T no. of them passed in 2<br />subjects & U no. of them passes in all subjects, what<br />no. of students failed in all subjects.<br />Another type of qstns. were related to cubes, like<br />there is a cube, one side of it is painted with blue<br />color, the opposite side is painted with yellow color,<br />now it is cut into 16 cubes of equal size, now how<br />many cubes r having blue color at one side & no color<br />at its adjucent side, how many cubes r having no color<br />at any side etc.<br />Then there were qstns. like if + means -, * means /,<br />means *, / means +, then which of the following is<br />true ; there were four options. Each having some<br />calculation like 12+8-3*5/32=13. We have to select the<br />option having the correct calculation.<br />Most of the questions were similar to the above<br />mentioned patterns.<br /><br />Section III : Aptitude test -20 Qstns.-20 Mins.<br /><br />This section contained qstns. exactly like those asked<br />in the Bank PO, Railways & UPSC exams. Its different<br />from usual apti. qstns.<br /><br />E.g. which two of the following are same : 11225689 :<br />11225986 : 11225689.<br /><br />Then Data sufficiency qstns. like statement 1 is<br />sufficient to get the answer, both 1 & 2 needed,<br />neither 1 nor 2 can give the answer etc.<br />Then Condition checking qstns. like there is a<br />recruitment of clerk. Some conditions r given like the<br />candidate should be graduate with 60%, his age should<br />be less then 30 years, typing speed should be atleast<br />45 wpm. etc.<br />Based on this we have to answer a perticular candidate<br />will be selected or not given his details.<br />Then Some simple & usual riddles like Ram goes to 5 km<br />east, then 5 km south, then west, now in which<br />direction he is. Then a man pointing to a photo says<br />he is the son of my grandmothers' son like that.<br /><br />Section IV : Programming -C & DFS OR VB -40 Qstns.<br />30 Mins.<br /><br />U can choose either C & DFS paper or VB paper. I chose<br />C & DFS.<br />This was the toughest part bcoz qstns. were lengthy &<br />time was very short. Both C & DFS qstns. were almost<br />equal. Most of the C qstns. were asking about the<br />output of the given code. The DFS qstns. were about<br />link list, array, queue & also the graph theory.<br />This section demands a thorough preparation of C & DFS<br />& Graph theory. </span></div>War10ckhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/00222845856620761703noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8902456563475429996.post-19804967214991952962012-02-22T11:22:00.002-08:002012-02-22T11:38:50.710-08:00Microsoft Placement Paper<div dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;" trbidi="on"><br /><span style="font-family: verdana; font-size: x-small;"><span style="font-family: Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: x-small;">1. Besides communication cost, what is the other source of inefficiency in RPC? (answer : context switches, excessive buffer copying). How can you optimize the communication?

An array of size k contains integers between 1 and n. You are given an additional scratch array of size n. Compress the original array by removing duplicates in it. What if k << n?<br /><br />ANS. Can be done in O(k) time i.e. without initializing the auxiliary array!<br /><br />7. An array of integers. The sum of the array is known not to overflow an integer. Compute the sum. What if we know that integers are in 2's complement form?<br /><br />ANS. If numbers are in 2's complement, an ordinary looking loop like for(i=total=0;i< n;total+=array[i++]); will do. No need to check for overflows!<br /><br />8. An array of characters. Reverse the order of words in it.<br /><br />ANS. Write a routine to reverse a character array. Now call it for the given array and for each word in it.<br /><br />9. An array of integers of size n. Generate a random permutation of the array, given a function rand_n() that returns an integer between 1 and n, both inclusive, with equal probability. What is the expected time of your algorithm?<br /><br />ANS. "Expected time" should ring a bell. To compute a random permutation, use the standard algorithm of scanning array from n downto 1, swapping i-th element with a uniformly random element <= i-th. To compute a uniformly random integer between 1 and k (k < n), call rand_n() repeatedly until it returns a value in the desired range.<br /><br />10. An array of pointers to (very long) strings. Find pointers to the (lexicographically) smallest and largest strings.<br /><br />ANS. Scan array in pairs. Remember largest-so-far and smallest-so-far. Compare the larger of the two strings in the current pair with largest-so-far to update it. And the smaller of the current pair with the smallest-so-far to update it. For a total of <= 3n/2 strcmp() calls. That's also the lower bound.<br /><br />11. If you are on a boat and you throw out a suitcase, Will the level of water increase.<br /><br />12.

Let f(k) = y where k is the y-th number in the increasing sequence of non-negative integers with the same number of ones in its binary representation as y, e.g. f(0) = 1, f(1) = 1, f(2) = 2, f(3) = 1, f(4) = 3, f(5) = 2, f(6) = 3 and so on. Given k >= 0, compute f(k).<br /><br />18. A character set has 1 and 2 byte characters. One byte characters have 0 as the first bit. You just keep accumulating the characters in a buffer. Suppose at some point the user types a backspace, how can you remove the character efficiently.

Some questions would require you to apply simple formulas and some others will require you to apply a bit of logical skills which should be least difficult though.<br /> <b>Question 1</b><br /> When a lady weighing 48 kg jogged at the rate of 10 km per hour the rate of dissipation of energy was twice that of when she was walking at the rate of 5 km per hour. Similarly the rate of dissipation of energy was higher during summer time than during the winter time. An athlete ran at the rate of 8 km per hour to the victory post and returned at 6 km per hour to the starting point. What is the average speed of the athlete?<br /> a) 5 6/7 km/hr b) 6 6/7 km/hr c) 4 6/7 km/hr d) none of these <br /> <b>Answer : </b> b) 6 6/7 km/hr<br /> Solution :<br /> Suppose a man covers a certain distance at x km/hr and an equal distance at y km/hr. Then,<br /> the average speed during the whole journey is <b>2xy / x + y </b>km/hr.<br /> Applying the formula to athlete's case we get his average speed to be<br /> 2 x 8 x 6 divided by (8 +6) = 48/7 = 6 6/7 km/hr.<br /><a name='more'></a><br /> <b>Question 2</b><br /> A bus was travelling from Koyambedu to Salem Bus Stand via Vellore. A bus was travelling at a speed of 72 km per hour. However when taking into account the stoppage time the average speed became 60 km/hour. How many minutes does the bus stops in an hour?<br /> a) 8 min b) 12 min c) 15 min d) 10 min.<br /> <b>Answer : </b> d)10 min.<br /> Solution :<br /> Due to stoppages, the speed is reduced by 12 km/hr.<br />In other words, the time that the bus would had taken to drive for 12 Km will be equal to stoppage time per hour.<br />Time taken to cover 12 km = 12/72 x 60 = 10 min = Stoppage Time.<br /> <b>Question 3</b><br /> Ram, John and Govind are walking from Marina Beach to Chengalput. Their speeds are in the ratio 4 : 3 : 5. The ratio of the time taken by them to reach Guindy by these persons will be:<br /> a) 15:20:12 b) 4:3:5 c) 15:9:20 d) none of these.<br /> <b>Answer : </b> a) 15:20:12<br /> Solution :<br /> For such problems, one can safely assume distances and speeds but in accordance with the constraints given in the question. For example, if you are going to assume the speeds of Ram, John and Govind, then they should be in the ration 4:3:5. That is their speeds can be 4,3 and 5 Km/hr or 8,6 and 10 Km/hr or 16,12 and 20 Km/hr and so on.<br /> Similarly, the distance from marina to guindy is not given in the question. This means that irrespective of the distance the answer would be same. Hence you can assume any distance from marina to guindy. However, if you assume the distance to be the LCM or multiples of LCM of speeds that is 4,3 and 5, the calculation will become very simple. For example, the LCM of 4,3 and 5 is 60. Hence you can assume the distance to be 60 or 120 or 180.... etc.<br /> In our case, let us assume the speeds to be 4,3 and 5 Km/hr and Distance to be 60 Km.<br />Ratio of time taken by the three = Distance / Speed of Ram : Distance / Speed of John : Distance / Speed of Govind<br />= 60/4:60/3:60/5 = 15:20:12<br /> </div></div>War10ckhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/00222845856620761703noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8902456563475429996.post-88803809737631989012012-02-22T11:19:00.005-08:002012-02-22T11:37:40.732-08:00TCS Practice Easy Aptitude Questions<div dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;" trbidi="on"><div class="article">Dear Reader, Below are easy aptitude questions of kind which could help you to practice for TCS and other similar papers. <br /> <b>Question 1</b><br /> Ramesh Khanna was five times old as his son Kishan Khanna eight years ago. Now he is three times as old as his son Kishan Khanna. Assume they both live in a country where people understand only binary numbers and they use symbol '0' for binary 1 and '1' for binary zero. Also they add 1 before any binary number. Express Ramesh Khanna’s present age in accordance to that world<br /> a) 1001111 b) 1001111 c) 1100011 d) 1010000<br /> <b>Answer : </b> a) 1001111<br /> Solution :<br /><a name='more'></a><br /> Let Ramesh Khanna’s age be represented as ‘F’ eight years ago and the age of Kishan Khanna be represented as ‘S”.<br />F = 5 S<br />F + 8 = 3 (S + 8)<br />5S + 8 = 3S + 24<br />5S – 3 S = 24 – 8<br />2S = 16<br />S = 8<br /> Now Ramesh Khanna’s age will be 5S + 8 = (5x8) + 8 = 48<br />Expressed as binary 110000 . However the people in their country use symbol 0 for binary one and 1 for binary zero. Replacing 1 with 0 and 0 with 1 we get 001111. Also those people usually add 1 before any binary number. Hence the answer becomes 1001111. <br /> <b>Question 2</b><br /> Bhavna is presently three times as old as her daughter Anushka. Ten years ago Bhavna was five times as old as her daughter Anushka was. After how many years, sum of their ages will be 100.<br /> a) 10 b) 20 c)15 d) none of these.<br /> <b>Answer : </b> a) 10<br /> Solution :<br /> Let Bhavna’s present age be represented as B<br />Let her daughter Anushka’s age be represented as A.<br /> B = 3 A<br />Ten years ago,<br /> B - 10 = 5(A – 10)<br />3A - 10 = 5A - 50<br />-10 + 50 = 5A – 3A = 2 A<br />40 = 2 A<br />A = 20.<br />B = 3 x A = 60.<br />Present sum of their ages = A + B = 80.<br />When 10 is added to both A and B, Sum of their ages will become 100. Hence, after 10 years, their sum of ages will be 100.<br /> <b>Question 3</b><br /> Monisha was seven times as old as her daughter Mercy eight years ago. Now three times Mercy’s age is her mother age. Before how many years the ratio of their ages (ratio of mother's age to Mercy's age) will be increased by 1 from the current ratio<br /> a) 5 b) 4 c) 8 d) none of these.<br /> <b>Answer : </b> b) 4<br /> Solution :<br /> Eight years ago -- let Monisha’s age be M and Mercy’s age be D.<br /> M = 7 D<br /> Now M + 8 = 3 (D + 8)<br /> 7 D + 8 = 3D + 24<br /> 7D - 3 D = 24 - 8 = 16<br /> D = 4 = age of Mercy before 8 years<br /> M = 28 = age of Mother before 8 years<br /> Current age of Mercy = D + 8 = 12<br /> Current age of Monisha = M + 8 = 36<br /> Current ratio of mother's age to Mercy's age = 36/12 = 3.<br /> Let before x years this ratio becomes 1 more than the current ratio. i.e x denotes the number of years before which the ratio becomes 3 + 1 = 4.<br /> Then 36 - x / 12 - x = 4<br /> 36 - x = 48 - 4x<br /> 3x = 12<br /> Or x = 4<br /> i.e before 4 years, the ratio of their ages will be 4.

Hence you can assume the distance to be 60 or 120 or 180.... etc.<br /> In our case, let us assume the speeds to be 4,3 and 5 Km/hr and Distance to be 60 Km.<br />Ratio of time taken by the three = Distance / Speed of Ram : Distance / Speed of John : Distance / Speed of Govind<br />= 60/4:60/3:60/5 = 15:20:12<br /> </div></div>War10ckhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/00222845856620761703noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8902456563475429996.post-828688638163539162012-02-22T11:24:00.002-08:002012-02-22T11:37:02.821-08:00Latest Sample Yahoo Placement Paper - I<div dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;" trbidi="on"><div align="center"><b><span style="color: maroon; font-family: Verdana;">Latest Sample Yahoo Placement Paper - I</span></b></div><span style="font-family: Verdana; font-size: x-small;">Aptitude and Computer Awareness<br />No Negative Marking.45 minutes to complete the test.
