Never try to solve the questions first that have more number of lines. Try to read last line of the questions because first lines will be of unrelevated data coming to questions first search for the numerical data in the questions and just the logic how the questions can be solved

(1)5(2)6(3)7(4)None

Ans 6. because different no of persons are sitting on round table. So possible differnt combinations for 10 people will be 1 2 3 4. because max 4 people can sit on round table. so round tables left are 6.

Ans (7+9)/2=8.

10. A boy want to make a cuboid of dimension 5m, 6m, 7m. from small cubes of .03 m3. later he realized he can make same cuboid by making it hollow. Then it take some cubes less. What is the no. of these cube.

Ans.Vol of solid cuboid= 5*6*7=210 m3. Vol of its inner cuboid by removal of which the cuboid will be hollow= (5-2)*(6-2)*(7-2)=60 m3, t hen ans will be 60/.03

Ans. 78-45=33.a3-b3=(a-b)(a2+ab+b2)

I remember only some of these questions. Also prepare the following topics:

Ages, percentages, numbers, simplification, profit and loss, time and work, time and distance etc.

Try to see maximum all test papers previous ones

Then you can clear the first round.

Later you will be called for interview after 2 or 3 days.

There will be 3 rounds.

1. Technical round

2. M.R

3. H.R

Technical round:

As i'm an ECE student they asked about C, Data structure and digital electronics. I heard from other branches C.S.E students must concentrate on software engineering and DBMS also they hey will ask basic concepts and they may ask to right programs. So just check various programs swapping without using third variable like that.

M.R:

They will check our resume clearly and checks our fluency communication skills and leadership quallites.

H.R:

It's a cool round. If make blunders only we will be eliminated in this round.

All the best guys, Take care
