you better study the question it may not be entirely correct.
In thus 3 q"s are there
Part 1: (Verbal/English, 25 Q - 15 min)
This was cool.
All Antonyms, Analogies got repeated from previous papers.
Time is sufficient.
No special preparation needed (provided u r good enough)
Just gaze thru previous papers, antonyms & analogies
Sentence completion & fill ups are easy.
Instead of mugging up antonyms, I personally recommend u to read Synonyms, so that u can easily locate their opposites. (U can refer TCS papers also if needed)
Part 2: (Quantitative Aptitude, 45 Q - 30 min)
This was tough.
One monkey climbs a poll at the rate of 6mts/min and fell down 3mts in the alternately. Length of the poll is 60 mts , how much time it will take to reach the top?
a. 31 b.33 c.37 d.40 (ans: 37)
X men work for X days to produce X products, then Y men can produce Y products in - - - - days. (ans: y^3/x^2)
successive discounts problem
sqrt(12 + sqrt(12) + ((sqrt(12) +......................infinity) = ? (ans: 4)
6 locks & 6 keys (permutation) problem
consider a square ABCD, in which E is the mid-point of BC & F is that of CD. Now find the ratio of area of triangle AEF to the area of square ABCD. (ans: 3/8)
Do not remember rest of the them.
This section makes the difference.
Special preparation is mandatory.
Try to solve problems of every type from R.S. Agarwal
Leave complex Q,s & proceed forward.
