Q 1-5 data
interpretation (need presence of mind) i don't remember the full question
but it was almost like ----
gopal and mohan bought 2 types of trees lemon and coconut in the ratio 1:5
gopal spent 2 lacs in other thingd like levelling,labour etc,,they totally
invested 12 lakhs after they sold coconuts they got 5,00,000.as revenue
,,, total field was 5 hectares ,, and the output of fields were in the
ratio 2:3 ,,they sold a coconut for Rs.5 ques. were on to find the number of
coconuts , the number of lemons total revenue of lemon etc ....ths was quite
time consuming question
question five figures were given in each question ,, and we have to find
the 6th of it from the options ,,(do it carefully)
one quest was :: is g+3>h+2?
1.g>0and h>0 2.cube of g >cube of h
these question test the basics of a person these can be simple quadratic
equation to even plus or minus questions...
Q16-20 a mix of data interpration and puzzle test (easiest ,,, mostly
candidates did it orally )mainly it was like puzzle test but a tabular data
was given to give it data interpretation type look,,,, i m sure everybody

syllogism (easy )
remember all nine rules given in R.S.Aggarwal verbal and non-verbal
the test can be
cleared with ease and comfort but ensure that u keep it exactly in time ,,
first do syllogism 5 questions will be done in atmost 2 minutes thn do data
sufficiency (these 2 sections are straight forward quetion with no link to
each other hence max. chance to get max. correct) then do puzzles as most
students are strong in this region atmost 5-7 minutes after wards do as u
like to other questions as all other are more time consuming
English : duratin-30 min question-40
English was basic but you have to be very careful
Q1-5 a big reading comprehension (need a lot of concentration)
Q6-10 reading comprehension but not so big
rest i don't remember the sequence
some 5 questions were on sentence correction (be careful ,all options are
almost alike )you have to gramatically strong to get on these one's
questions were on inference ,,( deduce wht the paragraph say)
i remember one was like ---- jim corbett was a famous tiger hunter ,he went
to some forest in search a girl whom a tiger has taken with it ,, when he
got to the tiger, he was with a colie,,, tiger has just finished eating the
girl ,, despite of seeing jim corbett the tiger did't moved ,,,

1' tiger was used to see jim corbett
2' animals unlike humans are not greedy and kill only when they are hungry
3' tiger was scared of jim corbett's colie (a name was given a don;t
were grammer like fill in the blanks with appropriate words ,, etc i can't
remember more queations sorryyyyyy
