The whole Selection Process contains two section Aptitude test.

Analytical & Logical reasoning
Friends I have not remembered the order of questions but I am telling the
questions in such a order that I follow and I am sure that you also get
advantage if you solve question in such order.
>Syllogism: (5 question) – Friends not only in Infosys but also in others
first attempt this question. It is very easy to solve.
Question Pattern: Statement: All A is B. Some B is C.
You have no need to memories all the rule of R.S. Agrawal and even you have
no need to draw vein Diagram to solve it, If you follow Time’s CAT
materials. There is very simple rule in Time’s materials by which you can
solve a syllogism with in 15 sec.
>Figure Series: (5 questions)- This is really very simple. For practice see
Agrawal. But don’t waste too much time for it.
>Dice & Cube Problem:(5 questions)- In my apti the prob was like below:
A cube is given and is painted six side with six diff colors.
Red is adjacent of yellow and green.
Pink is opposite of yellow.
Brown is in the bottom face
Now Q:1)Which color is in the top face?
Q:2) Which color in the opposite face of Red?
But there may also come others pattern:
There is a cube and it is cut in 27/64/125 equals pieces of cube. Now two
face is colored with black, two green, two red.
Q: No of cube which is painted three faces…No of Uncolored cube…..
Just see 3-5 Example from Agrwal It will come in ur hand.
>Puzzel: (5 questions) – Keep ur head cool for these question. I know puzzle
makes everyone puzzeled. Read the question carefully draw the diagram,
matrix and put the data one by one according to given information. I am sure
that every one can solve it.
>Data Interpretation: (5 question) – A chart, graph, table will be
given….and you have to solve some problem on statistics. It will too much
time conserving section so do it at last…..and also follow the Option
Friends I am really very week in this section. But as I have cleared so you
can clear it easily.
>Two passages and 5 question from each passages: Do it at the last. And
before reading the passage see the question one time.
>Sentence Correction: Be care about tense mistake, spelling mistake, using

keeping yourself cool. Friends believe me the Infosys HR panel are the
coolest person in the world(At least for my panel). And always think that
