" Q6. There are two different temperature measurement systems, similar to Celsius and Fahrenheit, say A & B. If A=14 then B=36 and if A=133 then B=87. What value will be equal in both systems? comment: i dont remember the rest. but all were really simple. the fact is, i didint get even 7 perfectly right. but i had wrote how i got to the answer, roughly ofcourse, on the rough sheets (for example i didint even reach near the temprature scale question. but i wrote that taking the two points as two st. lines on xy plane and the point of intersection as the answer). i think they must have given weightage to the thought process. the written round is the main elimination round. after that its a breeze. they really seemed nice people at the interview, smiling and all, and it was over quickly. i was asked questions frm my resume. thats all. so take care of the written test and u r in. best of luck.
