am Vishwanath gouda B . I got selected to TCS .My written exam was on 10th
April 2007,and technical round was held on 11th April 2007. 280 students
were written the written test,out of which 80 of them are selected for
technical round and finally after the technical, MR, HR round 38 were
selected and I am one among them.
The pattern of
question paper obtained to me is given below.It may be helpful to u.
The paper was as usual 3 sections
[Synonyms (10M) + Antonyms (10M) + Two passages are there each carries
6M (2 X 6 = 12)]
GRE Barron’s is enough for this section
the synonyms are
Quantitative & logical
A plane moves from 9˚N40˚E to 9˚N50˚W. If the plane starts at 5 am and takes
8 hours to reach the destination, find the local arrival time.
Since it is moving from east to west longitide we need to add both
ie,40+50=90 multiply the ans by 4(here 1 deg longitude=4min)
90*4=360 min =6hr
A, B and
C are 8 bit no's. They are as follows:
A -> 1 1 0 0 0 1 0 1
B -> 0 0 1 1 0 0 1 1
C -> 0 0 1 1 1 0 1 0 ( - =minus, u=union=or)
Find ((A - C) u B) =?
to find (A-C) U B To find A-C, We will find 2's compliment of C and them add
it with A, That will give us (A-C)
2' s compliment of C=1's compliment of C+1=11000101+1 =11000110
A-C=11000101+11000110 =10001001 Now (A-C) U B is .OR. logic operation on
(A-C) and B
10001001 .OR . 00110011 The answer is = 10111011
decimal equivalent is 187.
