1. Alok and Bhanu play the following min-max game. Given the expression N = 9 + X + Y - Z

Where X, Y and Z are variables representing single digits (0 to 9), Alok would like to maximize N while Bhanu would like to minimize it. Towards this end, Alok chooses a single digit number and Bhanu substitutes this for a variable of her choice (X, Y or Z). Alok then chooses the next value and Bhanu, the variable to substitute the value. Finally Alok proposes the value for the remaining variable. Assuming both play to their optimal strategies, the value of N at the end of the game would be a) 0 b) 27 c) 18 d) 20

2. Alice and Bob play the following coins-on-a-stack game. 20 coins are stacked one above the other. One of them is a special (gold) coin and the rest are ordinary coins. The goal is to bring the gold coin to the top by repeatedly moving the topmost coin to another position in the stack.

Alice starts and the players take turns. A turn consists of moving the coin on the top to a position i below the top coin (0 = i = 20). We will call this an i-move (thus a 0-move implies doing nothing). The proviso is that an i-move cannot be repeated; for example once a player makes a 2-move, on subsequent turns neither player can make a 2-move. If the gold coin happens to be on top when it's a player's turn then the player wins the game. Initially, the gold coinis the third coin from the top. Then

a) In order to win, Alice's first move should be a 1-move. b) In order to win, Alice's first move should be a 0-move. c) In order to win, Alice's first move can be a 0-move or a 1-move. d) Alice has no winning strategy.

3. For the FIFA world cup, Paul the octopus has been predicting the winner of each match with amazing success. It is rumored that in a match between 2 teams A and B, Paul picks A with the same probability as A's chances of winning. Let's assume such rumors to be true and that in a match between Ghana and Bolivia, Ghana the stronger team has a probability of 2/3 of winning the game. What is the probability that Paul will correctly pick the winner of the Ghana-Bolivia game? a)1/9 b)4/9 c)5/9 d)2/3

4. 18 people {a1, a2, ..., a36} meet and shake hands in a circular fashion. In other words, there are totally 18 handshakes involving the pairs, {a1, a2}, {a2, a3}, ..., {a35, a36}, {a36, a1}. Then size of the smallest set of people such that the rest have shaken hands with at least one person in the set is.

5. After the typist writes 12 letters and addresses 12 envelopes, she inserts the letters randomly into the envelopes (1 letter per envelope). What is the probability that exactly 1 letter is inserted in an improper envelope? a)1/12 b)0 c)12/212 d)11/12

6. A sheet of paper has statements numbered from 1 to 40. For each value of n from 1 to 40, statement n says "At least and of the statements on this sheet are true." Which statements are true and which are false?

a) The even numbered statements are true and the odd numbered are false. b) The first 26 statements are false and the rest are true. c) The first 13 statements are true and the rest are false. d) The odd numbered statements are true and the even numbered are false.

(This questions is repeated 6 times in my paper)

7. There are two boxes, one containing 10 red balls and the other containing 10 green balls. You are allowed to move the balls between the boxes so that when you choose a box at random and a ball at random from the chosen box, the probability of getting a red ball is maximized. This maximum probability is a) 1/2 b) 14/19 c) 37/38 d) 3/4

8. A circular dartboard of radius 1 foot is at a distance of 20 feet from you. You throw a dart at it and it hits the dartboard at some point Q in the circle. What is the probability that Q is closer to the center of the circle than the periphery? a) 0.75 b) 1 c) 0.5 d) 0.25

9. On planet zorba, a solar blast has melted the ice caps on its equator. 8 years after the ice melts, tiny plantoids called echina start growing on the rocks. echina grows in the form of a circle and the relationship between the diameter of this circle and the age of echina is given by the formula d = 4 * sqrt (t ? 8)for t = 8 Where the represents the diameter in mm and t the number of years since the solar blast. Jagan recorded the time of some echina at a particular spot is 24 years then what is diameter? a) 8 b) 16 c) 25 d) 21

10. Ferrari S.P.A is an Italian sports car manufacturer based in Maranello, Italy. Founded by Enzo Ferrari in 1928 as Scuderia Ferrari, the company sponsored drivers and manufactured race cars before moving into production of street-legal vehicles in 1947 as Ferrari S.P.A. Throughout its history, the company has been noted for its continued participation in racing, especially in Formula One where it has employed great success .Rohit once bought a Ferrari. It could go 4 times as fast as Mohan's old Mercedes. If the speed of Mohan's Mercedes is 35 km/hr and the distance traveled by the Ferrari is 490 km, find the total time taken for Rohit to drive that distance. a) 20.72 b) 3.5 c) 238.25 d) 6.18

11. (1/2) of a number is 3 more than the (1/6) of the same number? a) 6 b)7 c)8 d)9

12. There are two water tanks A and B, A is much smaller than B. While water fills at the rate of 1 liter every hour in A, it gets filled up like, 10, 20, 40, 80, 160 in tank B. (At the end of first hour, B has 10 liters, second hour it has 20 liters and so on). If tank B is 1/32 filled of the 21 hours, what is total duration of hours required to fill it completely? a) 26 b) 25 c)5 d)27

13. Middle- earth is a fictional land inhabited by hobbits, elves, dwarves and men. The hobbits and elves are peaceful creatures that prefer slow, silent lives and appreciate nature and art. The dwarves and the men engage in physical games. The game is as follows. A tournament is one where out of the two teams that play a match, the one that loses get eliminated. The matches are played in different rounds, where in every round; half of the teams get eliminated from the tournament. If there are 8 rounds played in knock out tournament, how many matches were played? a) 257 b) 256 c) 72 d) 255

All patterns are same but with different values. Refer Freshersworld.com question papers. For refernce only don't remember answers. TCS recruitment is almost over he's not taking much intake now putting cut-off 31 out of 35. So better choose other company.
