(b).5,.55,.65,.8,.....(series)
(c)find no of triangles in given fig.,
(d)if log 3=.477 & log(1000)x=3,find value of x,odd one out,....

(2)APTITUDE(30 questions in 30 min)
(a) % problems-3 or 4 questions
(b) direction-from X movin forward 8m reaches Y,move towards rite 5m,reach Z,turn rite move 7m then turn rite & move 5m.find distance from X 2 this pt?
(c) blood relation,
(d) time& distance-car travels in 15kmph after sometime increases speed to 18 kmph & total distance is 350km,find time taken,
(e) ratio & proportion-prob on (M*H*D)/W,
(f) age problem,

scheduling used in Windows XP. S->(S),S->x.Is it top down,bottom up parsing or ambiguous,two threads used in same m/y if shared m/y,.....

After the test,they short-listed the CSE candidates to 18.The interview started just after the result was published.There was only 1 panel(both tech & HR).
Interview lasted for 20min per person.First i was asked 2 introduce myself,then abt c++(pass by value,pass by reference,static variable,dynamic m/y allocation),then questions based on our fav subj,wat impressed me in the ppt,computer configuration,hw i update new computer technology.They'll ask abt the mini-project.

The result was published by 9:30pm.Out of 18 students,they selected 7 students &  i was one of them.
Be confident in wat u say & always be pleasant.

ALL THE BEST.
