there were actually four rounds they are
1) aptitude (English and aptitude)
2)technical 1
3)technical 2
4)HR

APTITUDE
there were actually 50 questions in 50 min. i have never seen such a easiest question paper in my life. There were 4 sets of question paper.no negative  marking
1-20 English

13 questions from aptitude
they were from ratio & proportion, time and work, compound interest, upstream and a downstream sum, average, time and distance, probability ,S.Ifrom R.S agarwal
some question like
1) product of three numbers is 30,000 and they are in ratio 2:3:9 find the largest number
2)milk and water are in ratio 5:7  some more milk added (i don't remember the exact value) the ratio became (i think) 6:7 wat is amt of milk after adding

7)22^2 * 33 ^3 . find the last digit of the result

others i don't remember
look the some previous year question from previous pattern(15 question pattern) for aptitude that's enough

they told 30 was the cut-off.  they also had sectional cut-off ( 8 for English and 12 for Aptitude)
the paper was so easy.....i think they had increased cut-off because the no. of students cleared the first round was less....
