    Sorry I donot remember all the Questions. I tried my 
    best to recall all. 

    My advice to future test takers is that for clearing 
    this Satyam test one should avoid making guesses, shud 
    do all familiar and easy questions first. Avoid making 
    any wild guesses, infact i (now) think that one should 
    not guess at all when there is negative marking. 

    I feel extremely sad that i could not clear this test 
    even after a lot of preperation (of Quant mainly thru 
    R.S. Aggarwal, puzzles) and hard work. My fault lay in 
    choosing the wrong questions, getting stuck for 7mins 
    on first Question, Guessing(so called educated 
    guesses) upto four answers I did 10 qs in all, 5 or 6 
    were surely right, rest i have no idea. But I will 
    never give up. I will keep trying. . . Whoknows MAYBE 
    one day i will get my first job in a decent software 

    Thank You all once again, for everything.
