8) U purchased 2 articles for a total of 2500/- . and u sold one of htem for 50% loss and other for 25% profit. Howmuch is ur actual profit or loss%ge?

9) Ten years ago avg of a family of 4 members is 24. Now 3 childs have born in that family out of them are twins and other is 2 yrs younger than thse twins. In such case also.. the avg haven't changed. Now guess the child's ages ?

10) If \$ represents '0' , % reprents '1' , %\$ represents '2' , %% represents '3'  and so on. Then how do u represent the LCM of 20,36,60.  - Only thing is we have to represent the LCM value in BCD form (observe clearly the data - 3 was represented by '11'  that is '%%' )

Coming to GD - Our topic is :
Which will u vote for - HardWorking or Smart working?
From our batch (total of 10) , You know 6 were selected. Only thing is we maintained co-ordination among ourselves.

In GD, Do remember that, shouting/arguing wont brings u something. Don't do such. Other topics were - Do Womens are best managers or not?
Western vs Indian culture ?
Can life exist without IT ?

Interview mainly depends on ur attitude, Fluency. One HR (not the one who done HR round for me) in one of my friend's panel is testing our psychometric /attitude by scolding- "You don't know anything , u r waste fellow".. like this. Only thing is we shouldn't be aggressive. Maintain eye-eye contact and answer questions loudly as well as clearly.

Yours,
