Infosys Placement Paper Whole Testpaper Saint Michaels Academy , Chennai-11 Jun 2006
Hai, It's Himanshu Rajendrakumar Khatri. I had written Infosys on 11th June at Saint Michaels Academy , Chennai. It was really a nice experience. As usual results get declared on the day itself but this time they had taken too much time to declare it. They announced it in the evening at 7:30 . I cleared the test & I had 9 answers right out of 10. I was not sure about 10th question which was logical reasoning. But later I came to know that I have 2 ans right from 4. So in all I had 9 & half ans right from 10. English pattern was easy nothing special to refer it. But try to summarize tenses & u can follow cbse pattern. This is all about test.
I had interview on 13th at Infosys centre. Here are the questions that appeared in the test. I tried to give the exact words from the test & I think I did well. Also I had given detail answers.
Q.1) Dr. Watson has 5 nephews. After he died he mentioned in his will that each of his brother's sons should get money according to their ages. The difference between each son is Rs. 20 & youngest son got least money. Total money to be shared is 1000. How much youngest son will get?
Ans: Let the third i.e. middle son will get Rs. x then youngest son will get Rs. x-40.=> Adding their shares = 1000 => (x-40) + (x-20) + x + (x+20) + (x+40) = 1000 => x = 200 => x - 40 = 160 => Youngest son will get Rs.160
Q.2) In a party there r total 1275 handshakes assuming each person did handshake with other fellow. How many people attended the party?
Ans: Let number of people attended the party = x then Number of handshakes =xC2 = 1275 => x * (x - 1) = 1275 2 * 1 => x2 - x - 2550 =0 => (x - 51)(x + 50) = 0 => x cannot be negative => x = Number of people attended party = 51
Q.3) If one fifth of a hive of bees flew to the rose flower, one third flew to the lotus flower, three times the difference of these two numbers flew to slandbara & one bee continued to fly about, attracted on each side by the fragrant of ketaki & malati, what was the total number of bees?
Ans: X + X + 3( X - X ) +1 = X 3 5 3 5
=> X = 15 = Number of bees.
Q.4) Due to some defect in our elevator, I was climbing down the staircase. I had climbed down just 7 steps when I saw professor Zorkoski on the ground floor. Continuing to walk down, I greeted him & I was surprised to see that when I was yet to get down 4 steps to reach the ground floor, professor had already finished the climbing up 2 steps for every 1 of mine. How many steps did the staircase have?
Ans: 7 X 4 |-------------- |------------------|----------------|
From figure, equation becomes : 7 + X + 4 = 2X
=> X = 11
=> Total number of steps = 7 + 11 + 4 = 22
Q.5) Complete the following series: a) 3, 6, 13, 26, 33, 66, ?
Ans: 3 * 2 = 6 6 + 7 = 13 13 * 2 = 26 26 + 7 = 33 33 * 2 = 66 66 + 7 = 73 73 * 2 = 146 Series : 3, 6, 13, 26, 33, 66, 76, 146
b) 364, 361, 19, 16, 4, 1, ?
Ans: 364 - 3 = 361 O(364) = 19 19 - 3 = 16 O(16) = 4 4 - 3 = 1 O(1) = 1 1 - 3 = -2
Series: 364, 361, 19, 16, 4, 1, 1, -2
Q.6) A man was asked to meet a lady lawyer who had a good logical skill. Today is Saturday. A man wanted her appointment. She called her three days after the day before the day after tomorrow. What is the appointment day?

Let wizard's son age = X then wizard's age = 3X & his father's age = (6X+40) => X + 3X + 6X + 40 = 1240 => X = 120
Wizard's age = 360 years

HR interview was cool. They didn't ask me to explain myself, a most imp question. Being a chemical engineer they keep asking me why you are not interested in chemical industry & what u did in last 1 year. I explained them all truly & they look convinced. So my advice is be true to them, they are among top mind readers. They will easily catch your bluffs. They asked me which concept from computer u like most. I told them about OOPS & explained it. They also asked me how u will adjust within a team. Such HR questions. Then they had given me a simple puzzle.
Well this is all about my Infosys experience. I am waiting for the result.
