    Hello Friends, Neha Here

    This was the paper of ST microelectronics held at Thapar University on 29 august, 2007

    There were 3 types of paper..

    1. IT( For MCA students)
    2. Embedded Software( For BE(CS) and ME/Mtech(CS))
    3. Hardware( For BE(ECE  branches) and ME/MTech(ECE))


    All of this paper had different no of questions...

    I had given paper of embedded software so I am giving its details .Paper  had two part:

    1. 1 marks questions (10 questions of aptitude and 10 questions on OS, Microprocessor and DS)

    2.2 marks questions on C(15 questions)



    Part 1: 1 marks questions were like...(Aptitude was quite easy)

    1. There is pipe with given radius, a small pipe of given radius. How many pipes of smaller radius will contain the same quantity of liquid kept by larger radius tube?


    1. A ladder is standing against a wall of 25m height at a distance of  7 km from wall. Suddenly Ladder slips 4m down from top. How much will it move from the earlier 7m distance from the wall? 
    2. A person likes 225 not 224, like  900 not 800, from given vat will he like?1600,1500.. (Answer is simply ny given square term(1600)..c paettern of his liking
    3. Three co-ordinates of triangle was given.. we had too find type of triangle it is..
    4. A square is cut from a circle and a circle is cut from that much area is remaining  ?.
    5. In equilateral triangle  a circle is drawn. In that circle one square is drawn. Find the ratio of area of equilateral triangle to square?
    6. Question on simple average speed..
    7. Question on angle between hands of a clock?


       Next 10 questions were  technical

           1. Int *p;

               P=(int *p)malloc(100);

               Wat is sizeof(p),sizeof(*p)


             2. A question on find the worst case complexity of Quick Sort( ans :O(n2)   )

              3. Piggy Backing is For ?(Acknowledgement)

               4. In POP operation of Microprocessor how it process the instruction

                     Ans: it pops the instruction and decrements the stack pointer

    1. Where does Global,Local and static variables of a program lie?
    2.  3 questions on H/w ..that I could not solve?.
    3. 1 question on Boolean expression(a simple one)


             2 marks questions?

       1 #define xyz abc*cd

              #define abc  10

             #define cd 10



               Int k;




               Ans:  -80


    2.  Static variables don?t change their value as they are stored in

    a) stack   b)  data segment   c)  heap  d) none


    3. #pragma  pack(1)

    Struct   a


    Int a:4;

    Int b:45;

    Char c;


     What is the size of struct if int is of four bytes .

    Ans is   5

    4. a question on bitwise  operator i=90;

    Char *p;

    P=(char *)&i ;


       Pointer is I ncremented  by  2,1,4  or none of these


    6.#define scanf ?%s is string?





    Ans;   %s is string is string



    7 char str={?neha?);

    printf(?hello \n? %s? \n?,str);


    output  :  ?



    8 One question on page table. we had to find page size

    9 . One question on memory acces time of a program with given hit ratio and given cache access time..( revise the formula from OS)

    10. Find the number of 1?s in the following expression

             (3*4096 + 16*1024+ 3)

    11.    1  question  on recursion

     int i=89;

          Int *p;

    Char *t;


    T=(char *)&I;

    If( *p==*t)




    Tell the  o/p.


    12. Again 2 question to find output of a c program
