1.WRITTEN TEST:
This is the new pattern of IBM. this new pattern has been implemented. it
contains 3 sections.
SECTION 1, some information is given in the form of matrices, with headings
for rows as row1,row2 …. Etc.For columns with headings as column1,column 2….
Etc.those matrices r as follows.
Column1 column2 column3 column4
Row1 @ * 2 Z
Row2 S K ? $
Row3 I P Z +
Row4 # 8 F Q
Questions r as follows ( not same questions but same type)
1.if column1 , Column 4 r interchanged and row3 , row4 r interchanged and
diagonal elements from top left to bottom right r written in reverse order
then what is the element in row1 and column 1?
2.if Z’s in odd numbered rows r replced with 7’s and S’s in odd numbered
columns r replaced with 5’s then which column elements sum equals to 9?
3.After giving similar type of conditions , what is the element left to H?
In this section they gave around 4 matrices of this type and gave some
questions for each matrix.
Total No. of Questions r 15. these r multiple choice questions.5 answers
were given for each question. No negative marks for this section. Time Limit
is 13 minutes.
SECTION2
All questions in this section r from number series. Total number of
questions r 20.time limit is 4 minutes.these r also multiple choice
questions( 5 options).Negative marking(1/4) is there for this section.
2. NUMBER SERIES (20 qs 4 mins20 marks negative 1/4)
simple but v shud b very quick....time is very very very imp 4this section
frnds dont get confused really very simple section and 1more thing is the
invigilaor signals time 4 every 30 secs dont feel tensewth tht just go wth
ur work..

Ans....21
EX: 22,21,34,33,45,____
Ans......44
EX: 40,42,4241,41,,42,44,44,____
Ans.....44
SECTION3
Negative marking(1/4) is there for this section.
Analytical type Questions . this secton is little bit tough.u must have
practice to do this section.questions 12.time 15 minutes.Negative
marking(1/4) is there for this section.
1. If a company produces 15 different model of tv sets of 2 inchs screen and
4 different model of 4 inches screen size. Then how many model should vendor
has for all the model so that all models will displayed in the showroom
2. If a team consists 20 members in which 20% are mathematician then how
many member should they hire sothat the ratio would become 10/11.
(Similar Question) 20% of 30 professional r mathematician how many
mathematician it should hire so the ratio vll become 10/11
3. The rate of color toner increases $33 to $35 and rate of black&white
toner increases $28 to $29. If company spends $1540 in which 3/5 is color
toner then how much is total expenditure increases after the cost hike.
4. A computer shop consists 3 brand’s alptop .Laptop of brand A is sold
3/16, B is sold 1/16 and c is sold ¾ then what fraction is sold by the shop
in all.
5. Printer A prints 8192 character per min and printer B prints 13862
character per min four character are equal to one word. Printer A starts at
7:15 am while Printer B starts at 7:29 am then at what time both will have
same no of words printed.
6. In a library there are 5 cluster and each is having 44 books(module). In
first weak 75 books are used, in second 95, in third 95 and in fourth 160
books are used.then tell how much fraction of books are used.
7. We have 171 kg rice custing 7 rs/kg.we have rice at 11 rs/kg and 2 rs/kg

9. Company A taken a truck on rent of $1280 per month another company B
bought the truck in $40000 and send $120 per month. After 4 years what will
be the difference in the amount spent by the both companies on the TRUCK.
10. In a company printing work is done by two machine 5% of the work done by
machine A are wasted , and 40% of work done by machine B are wasted. if the
80% of the total work is done by machine A. then what is the total
percentage of wastage.
Here GD/Extempore was been conducted. around 2000 ppl attended.. but only
154 got through finally..
