L & T INFOTECH PAPER & INTERVIEW - 2005

Finally and finally i got thru Larsen & Turbo Infotech Limited. I applied for their off-campus recruitment given in the recent advertisement in Anandabazar Patrika. I got a call on Tuesday evening that my test is on Friday, so i had only 2 days for preparation. I deperately searched for the paper pattern in all the groups but all the pattern were obsolate.

==================================================
APPEARED FOR TEST = 1200
SELECTED FOR INTERVIEW = 350
SELECTED FOR HR = 80
FINAL LIST = 47
WRITTEN TEST- Duration 40 mins 36 questions. 0.25 -ve marking
8 figures were given in the form given below and u will have to find 9th one by the combination of the 8 previous ones. 8 options were given out of which one was correct.
A  B  C
D  E  F
G  H  __
Here ABCDEFGH are all different figures and u will have to find the last one. There r some definite rules of solving these types of problems.......
(1) Some problems were of overlapping pattern. Putting A on B u will get C. Putting D on E u will get F, so on.
(2) Some problems were like a musical chair pattern. Three figures were there on every row. They repeat with a diff pattern on the other row.
(3) Subtract the common portion of A & B and add the uncommon portion to get figure C.
(4) Each figure contains multiple shades and each shade move to the next figure using a definite pattern(may b by shifting right or left).
(5) Product of A & B to produce C. ( If A is square,B bend line....C will be square like figure with sides bended)
the paper was prepared by J.C.Raven. u can refer the book figure matrices by j.c.raven all Q  were from that book itself. it will like very is but toughness will increase from q to q.
Most of the problems can be solved by these ways. The first 20 were very easy.20-30 were mediocore level tough. 30-36 were untouchable. I amnaged to do 31 within the stipulated time. I got my name in no 2 position. The cutoff  maybe was 25 or 27
