    Hi fnds I  appeared 4 infosys selection process on 10th Octomber 2006 (Sunday) at HYDERABAD.In my point of view infosys SP is very easssy. Why bcoze there is no technical intviw & GDS. Only written test followed by HR interview. I solved all 10 puzzles correctly. If U clear written test then u no need 2 worry abt HR intviw, these is only formal intevw. So I wuld like 2 share my experience with u d guys. My experience may helpful 2 u.


    1.OPTITUDE TEST:  Which includes logical reasng, numerical reasng, puggles of 10 qusns with 50 marks, 1hr. time. 4 this u have 2 prepare at least 25+ previous papers.

                            1.PUZZLES TO PUZZLES U

                            2.MORE PUZZLES.

    That is more than enough. In these books some qsns are there which are difficult to remember &understand, leave thm .60+% qsnz are coming fm previous papers, so be touch with tht papers. Each section has its own cutoff marks, so both r imps.

    2. ENGLISH TEST: The pattern is like this. Thre r 45 qsns with 30 mnts time, time is very less. These are all based on BASSICS OF ENGLISH GRAMMER nothing else..

    a)[1-6 QNS],passage given,fm tht u hve to ansr these 6 qsns.It will take more    time, so answer it at the last.

                b)[7-11 QNS],fill in d  blanks with appropriate word 4 options.

    1)                  let us take X=a^9

    then( a^9)^1/3-(a^9)^1/9 =60




    by sol . this



    2)                  let us assume no. of participants = x

    from the condition  x.1/5+x.6/5=x+1/5+1/6




    3)                  this is very simple dnt worry abt no. of conditions are given have to arrange sequence of  relation using < or > symbols. After one arranging one Lange sequence u can answer any qsn. I am not remember total qsn tht?s way I am unable to give realeason.But

            ans:Edward (sure)


    4)                  At 1st milestone the distance =xy.

    At 2nd milestone the distance=yx

    This diff. will give the speed of care=xy-yx

    The diff. Of one number and reverse number must be divisible by 9.

    Frm this we have to check all multiples of 9 which satisfy  all conditions in the problem.45 will do tht condition..

    Suppose at first the distance =16km

    At 2nd ms distance=16+45=61km

    At 3rd ms distance=61+45=106km

            Ans:45KM/hr (sure)


    5)                  LET US take last no=x

    Then 4th digit=2x

    And 5th digit=4x

    3rd digit=4th digit.5th digit






    1st+2nd>3rd fm condition     

    let take 1st=a

    a+a+5>8 fm condition



            Ans: 16842(sure)

    6)                  At every match one team eliminated fm the tournment. Thre r 100 teams. So 99 matches r required to eliminating 99 teams for decide winner.

    8)        U rember these formulas,.if no.cubes in one side=n


                            a).no of .3 sides color cubes=no.of corners(n-2)^0=8

                            b)no. of 2 sides color cubes=no.of edgesx(n-2)^1=12x(n-2)^1

                            c)no.of 1 side color cubes =no.of facesx(n-2)^2=6(n-2)^2

                            d)no. of no color cubes=   (n-2)^3

                     in our  pblm. N=3     (27=3x3x3)

           Ans:     a)    1

    e)  6

    f)  12

    g)  8    (sure)


    9)            reuben hat cost=x

                              suit cost=y

                               x + y=  15

              synthin hat cost a=y

                     synthin   dress cost =b

                       hats cost ratio=x:a=3/2:1=x:y=3:2

                     so x=3x15/5=9




            Ans:1) hat cost=9



         10)      those who dnt married                  =100-85=15

                     those who dnt hve T.V                 =100-75=25

                      those who do not heve radio        =100-85=15

                      those who dnt hve  A.C              =100-70=30        

                      total no. of  men those who do not have  any one of the above=85

                       no. of  men those who r under all of the above=100-85=15


           Options are not given 4 d puzls,so u hve to solue d pblm nd write the ansrs. So solution is imp. Pattern may change, so be touch with IT papers.

    Prepare well -Go with confidence-Do without tension-Tell with smile-Get good life with good job.  ALL THE BEST 4 UR BRIGHT FUTURE.
