PART- 1 --> 40 q,s (Fundamental computer Concepts, includes OS,N/w , protocols)
PART-2  --> 20 q,s (Purely C ) --  bit tricky (involves ADA concepts)
PART-3 -->  20 q,s (Analytical) --- very easy

I don,t remeber all the q,s.however some of them which i do have been written below. They r not in order or part of .
