INFOSYS Placement Papers
INFOSYS PAPER ON 28th OCTOBER AT TRICHY
Hi to everyone.My name is Felix ,from trichy. I attended infosys offcampus
interview on october 28th in ANNA UNIVERSITY CAMPUS,Trichy.1224 students
attendedt he test.
The first round had 2 sections:
Logical Reasoning section:
Here u need to answer 30 questions in 40 mins.
The CUT-OFF was 15 out of 30.
First have a point in mind.There is NO NEGATIVE MARKING.So attend all the
Dont strike any option in answer sheet and overwrite again.Because it wont
be treated as an answer.It will be omitted.
This section was very easy.But needs practice.Refer Non-verbal and verbal
reasoning by R.S.Agarwal book.Similar models with clear explanation is given
in that book.
Okay now let me recollect some questions which i got in the test.
Que 1to 5:we can complete the 1st 5 questions in 3mins. very very simple. it
was like finding the direction.
eg.1.A boy walks 40 km north and then walks 50km towards east.then turns
right and walks 30km and then turns right and walks 50km.Now what is the
distance between this point and the starting place?
2.A boy walks some distance towards north and then turns right,walks some
distance.After walking some time he turns left and walks some distance and
then walks some dist and then he walks at an angle of 45degree towards right
and then turns to his left and walks.Towards Which direction was he walking
3.A man walks 10km towards west.Then which of the combinations will take him
to the original starting position?
Options:a)left,left,right b)left,right,right c)right,left,right
Other 2 questions i dont remember.But was very simple like this only.
Ques 6 to 10:Here 5 pictures are given and are logically related.3rd picture
was missing.It was pretty tough than i expected.I went without preparation
for these type of questions.Better u practice some questions like this.Then
u will get idea.All these practise is just for saving time only because u
will attend all questions if 1hour time is given.But here u need to attend
30questions in 40 mins.Sopractice sincerely atleast 1week before the test.
11 to 15:Data sufficiency
Refer data sufficiency chapter in R.S.Agarwal(Verbal and non-verbal).Thats
more than enough.
The pattern was like
a)if a alone is sufficient to answer the question
b)if b alone is sufficient
c)if either a or b alone is sufficient to answer it
d)neither a nor b is sufficient to answer the question
e)we need both a as well as b to answer the question
Okay,be careful in choosing the option.Read the options twice or thrice and
think logically while having an eye over the time.
11.Is (x)power4 -2(x)power3-34 > (y)power2?
given a)x is real
B)y is less than 0
i dont remember the Other 4 questions.But easy only.You can easily answer 3
to 4 questions correct.
16 to 20: Data Interpretation
Bar chart or Pie chart will be given.
The problem given to me was a bar chart representing the sales of paint
company in 5 years.
And 5 questions were asked like what is the increase in percentage in 1996
Like these only.Simple.
Better try some problems in data interpretation chapter.
21 to 25:Puzzle test
Refer Puzzle test in R.S.Agarwal and work out all problems within a day.U
will surely answer all the 5 questions correctly.
The question i had was: There are 8 teachers a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h each teach
different subjects.3 teachers are female and remaining are gents.4 of the
teachers hold a Ph.d degree.G is a lady without a ph.d.F is a lady with a
ph.d.A teaches chemistry.C is a lady teaching biology.D or E dont teach
either physics or commerce.the one who teaches law is not a ph.d holder.The
one who teaches literature is nOT A LADY.
21)Who teach physics?
22)who is not a lady?
23)which of the statements is false?
24)who teach zoology?
a)c ,b)H , c)C or H, d)cannot be determined
25)which of the statement is true?
All u need is to construct a chart with the details given.thats it u can
answer 3 or 4 easily.1 or 2 questions u need to think and answer.Simple.
26 to 30: Syllogisms
Study all 9 rules in R.S.Agarwal and try to solve all the problems and read
the explanation for each problem given in the book.Thats it , if u r
thorough with the rules,its very easy to finish 5 questions in 5 mins.
Which of the following combinations are logically correct and related to
Hint: First goto the 4 options given.Analyse the combination whether it is
logically related?Thats it.simple
26)a)All crows are black
b)All birds are crows
c)All birds are black
d)All birds are feathers
e)All black are claws
f)All black are parrot
a)abc b)ade c)fcb d)cda
Remember conclusion of two statements is different from logically related
statements.So be careful in choosing your answer.
27)a)Shyam plays chess
b)There is no need to be intelligent to win a chess game
c)Shyam lost in chess
d)Shyam is not intelligent
e)Shyam is educated
f)Shyam is intelligent
Remaining problems were also simple like these only.So if you plan ur time
and attend all questions u can easily score 20 to 25.The cut-ff for
selection would be 15 to 18.So if u give correct answers for 18 or more, u r
definitely in which is easily possible with some practise.
Next is the English section
Here 40 questions to be solved in 35 minutes.Cut-off will be 20 to 22.So try
to attend all 40 questions.It doesnt need any practise if ur english is
above average i.e. if u r good in the grammatical area.
2 Reading comprehensions:(5+5=10 qs)
Both passage has 5 qs and both were easy only.Dont read each and every
line.Just scan the lines in 2 minutes.Goto the questions and come back to
the passage immediately and read the concerned lines quickly.U can finish
both the passages in 12 to 13 minutes which is quite good.But dont spend
more than 15 minutes here.Otherwise u wont have time to complete fully.
8 questions with 4 options each were asked.Need to find out which option is
correct grammatically and makes sense.Thats it.Dont spend more than 8 mins
eg.a)Today farming is very much precarious enterprise among all.
b)Farming today is the most precarious enterprise of all.
c)Farming today is the most precarious enterprise in all.
d)farming enterprise today is one of the most precarious enterprise.
All 8 questions were like these only.If u r quick in grasping,u will finish
these 8 qs in 5 mins.
Fill ups:(8qs) 8 questions.
A big sentence was given.And some where in between there will be a blank.U
need to choose the option which suits the blank exactly.There were 8 qs here
and i found it little hard.So i took around 10 mins.I dont remember any
question exactly.They may be a part of a passage related to history,science
or anything.Just testing our english.
Small passage:(5 qs)
A small passage like a story was given in 5 lines and 5 questions were
asked.Just read the passage fast and goto the questions.4options were given
and u need to analyse which option will suit the question.Thats it.U can
finish these 5 qs in 3-4 mins itself.
Which is true? (9 questions)
They gave some 3 lines of content in every question and it had 4 options
asusual.U need to find out which of the 4 options will be true according to
the content given. This was also easy only.
Now after reading my experience,u would have got some idea.I also went to
the test after reading these kind of experiences given by some unknown
person.Thanks to all of them. thats it.All u need is to have some practise
in the related areas and have confidence.Its easy to clear the 1st round.
Then we waited 2 hrs for the result.
144 students were shortlisted for the next round.53rd name was mine.
Once u r shortlisted for the next round means,sit alone and just relax.Calm
down and cool yourself.If u think u need some preparations,dont take any
book and read.just answer urself within mind some of the usually asked qs
1.tell about urself,
2.why your % went down in B.E compared to 10th and 12th std?
3.why r u interested to enter IT field?
4.Just make your resume simple.pls dont make it heavy by mentioning unwanted
extra details.Questions will be asked only based on the data which u have
given in ur resume.
5.Prepare information about ur project.
7.If u had any arrears during ur degree,there is a definite question about
the arrear subject.Just he will ask what is the subject related to?what does
it mean?Nothing else.Just be mentally prepared.
Another thing is fill up the infosys form carefully without any mistake
before the 1st round.Because in the HR interview the questions will be
partially based on those details also.
Thats it other than these things 1 puzzle may or may not be asked based on
the interviewer u have.Just answer boldly whatever u say.Dont say 'i dont
know' for any of the qs which he asks.Just try ur level best to answer
them.Be positive.It doesnt need that only if u solve the puzzle,ul be
selected.Even if u don know the puzzle,they ll just see ur approach towards
the problem,thats it.
They said that final result of selected students will be mailed in a
month.So im waiting for these 30days..
Prepare well. Wish u all success and all the very best.
