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.
