HARRIS PAPER ON 29th MARCH
Hello friends, I am SHAMIK ROY an Electrical Engg.3rd year
Student of ACADEMY OF TECHNOLOGY, Aedconagar, Hooghly, West
I m a lucky guy among 13 candidates who got placed in TORRY
HARRIS from 235 students, on Mar 29, 2007. It was a
euphoric evening for me.
Total students appeared: 235
of students qualified the written paper: 54 in apti & then
29 in technical apti.
Finally got offer letter: 13
Package: 3 lakh per annum.
There is no any kind of bond except EMOTIONAL BOND.
(1) Quantitative Aptitude (20 questions, 20 minutes).
This portion was very tough but main thing was time
management. I started from last; some questns were little
bit easier than first ones.
Some questions which I remembered are:
a) Lotus becomes triple after 1 min in a pond. If the pond
is filled 1/3rd in 30 min, how much time it will take to
fill the pond with lotus.
b) A problem on average of ages of students in a school.
c) A problem on train & time and distance.
d) Sum of all digits of the result of 1000^7-21 (not exactly
bt same type).
e) Maximum no. of problems was from FACTORIALs of numbers.
E.g. What will be the unit digit of 96! ?
f) Some very difficult & time consuming problem related to
FACTORIALs of numbers.
EASIER ONES FIRST THEN ANSWER REMAINING BY GUESS, AS THERE
IS NO NEGATIVE MARKING.
Cut off marks was 13 in our time. It may be 16. Basically
there were 2 different sets of papers. I am informing only
about my question set.
Within an hour results were declared. 54 among 235 cleared
the aptitude round.
cleared this round by God’s grace.
Non- Technical paper ( 20 questions, 20 minutes) .
This paper basically had ques related to simple digital
electronics, control system, micro-processor, general
knowledge of computer, Analog electronics& was quite easy as
compare to quantitative aptitude.
Some questions which I remember are:
1) How many address lines in 2048*4
If unit input is an impulse response then its Laplace
What is the steady state error in transfer function G(s) =
What is the function of clk pulse in a flip-flop?
In SR flip-flop S=1 & R=0 then it set, wht will b the state
whn S=0? Set or reset.
Wht is the size of main memory of a typical personal
Wht is the name of binary mass storage device?
Why CMOS is not applicable in noisy environment?
Wht is the bit size of control word of a 32bit
10) The characteristic eqn of a system is s^4+s^3+s^2+s
= 0, what will b the positions of closed loop poles & zeroes
11) If input of a linear system is 5sin wt the output will b
10cos wt, now if the input is 10cos wt wht will b the
output? SORRY frndz
Still 9 questions I’m not able to remember guys, which were
also simple like these.
Note: There was a technical paper for CS n IT students and
choice for other students to opt either of the paper. I m
from EE so I got non-technical paper n also for ECE students
as well. You can also choose IT paper being a non IT
Within half an hour results were declared. 29 among 54
cleared the technical aptitude round. I cleared this round
(3) GROUP DISCUSSION (max 10 min for each group)
students were grouped into 10.hence there were 3 groups. In
my group there were 9. Each group was allotted roughly 10
mins for this round.
Few topics were:
Whether there should be a quota in higher education for OBCs
Commercial software Vs Open source.
Should the Special Economical Zone be made at Nandigram?
topic was no.1 Actually all topics were based on current
affairs. So go through news papers daily.
I cleared the GD and was selected for PI.
(4)Technical & HR interview (approx
15-20 min for each)
It was my first interview, I faced ever. It was totally
technical but at first “tell me about your self” was asked
only to me except others. The interviewer, I faced was quite
serious but another was really a cool guy.
Few questions are:
Then he asked me what you know in computer science?
I am from Electrical Engineering dept. I clearly told him
that I learned C,data structure,OS in 2nd & 3rd sem so I am
not able to answer up to the mark but sir if u ask questions
from microprocessor, digital electronics, control system,
Electrical machines & power systems then I can answer.
Then he asked…
What is the difference betwn microprocessor &
What is accumulator?
What is Interrupt?
What is flip-flop?
What is Karnoph map?
What is truth table?
What is www?
What is internet?
What is stepper motor?
Then as I won 3rd prize on paper presentation in The
National Seminar, he asked me to explain the topic. I did
this very well.
Some other CSE related questions from C, data structure, OS
were asked to all except me. I answered promptly &
confidently all the question
At last he asked, u r totally focused in electrical engg. So
how you will work in an IT company? I answered very smartly;
the PPT helped me to configure my answer.
That's it. I was selected and on spot I received the offer
letter from them & shaken hand also. My most unforgettable
Thanks to all who contributed to Freashersworld.com. It
really helped me a lot. I finally thank one and all who have
helped me through out my carrier and especially my PARENTS
who are behind me and my LOVABLE FRIENDS of ACADEMY OF
TECHNOLOGY…& obviously my favorite teacher in ACADEMY Prof.
SURAJIT CHATTERJEE of EE dept.
BEST OF LUCK FRENDZ…. Just work hard and you’ll make it…
