    Q paper set C 
    note that,The Qpaper had as May 2001 as date. note the
    answers may not be correct. try ur self.
    i am just trying 2 help u.

    <9> <10> <11> <12> <13> <14> <15> <16> <17> <18> <19>
    other i can not remember others. they where from 2001
    be care full (11) 2 (20) r opposites. some had not
    seen this.

    fill blanks
    one para was given and asked some choices more than
    number of blanks given. we have 2 choose the choice in
    the blank.
    it was about poeple 2 put money in market. about risk
    and etc.
    it was easy.

    <1> If g (0)=g (1)=1 And g (n)= g (n-1) + g (n -2)
    find g (6);
    Q like this one. just know the method
    G(0) = 1
    G(1) = 1
    G(2) = G(1) + g(0) = 2
    G(3) = g(2) + g(1) = 3
    G(4) = g(3) + g(2) = 5
    G(5) = g(4) + g(3) = 8
    G(6) = g(5) +g (4) = 13

    <2>A plane moves from 9?N40?E to 9?N40?W. If the plane
    starts at 10 am and takes 8 hours to reach the
    destination, find the local arrival time? 
    Q like this one. just know the method
    The time is calculated on the basis of longitude.
    (Based on sunrise)
    Sun rises earlier in calcutta than in Mumbai.
    The 40 degrees east and 40 degress west are calculated
    form 0 degrees.
    The plane has travelled westwards by 40+ 40 = 80
    Degrees. (WEST)
    For each degree there is a difference of 4 Minutes.
    The difference in timings is 320 Minutes behind.
    As per the starting point time 10.00 AM the flight
    should have reached at 6.00
    Reducing 320 Minutes from it we get 12.40 PM local
    time at the destination

    <3>Given $ means Tripling and % means change of sign
    then,find the value of $%$6-%$%6
    Q like this one. just know the method
    ((3)*(-1)*(3)*6 ) - ((-1)*(3)*(-1)*6)

    <4>The size of a program is N. And the memory occupied
    by the program is given by M = 4000 sqr_root(N). If
