L&T Infotech Aptitude Test Quastions with answers

Round 1: written Aptitude exam…
TOTAL STUDENTS APPEARED : 1000+
SHORT LISTED : 190 in written aptitude there were 3 sections….

Section A : it was quantitative aptitude test…there were 30 questions…i think R.S. Aggarwal is more than enough for the test…this part was quiet easy. the important chapters of RS aggarwal for this part are: NUMBERS,TIME AND DISTANCE,PROBABILITY,P&C,BOATS & STREAMS,PROBLEMS ON TRAINS,AVERAGE,RATIO PROPORTION AND GRAPHS AND PIE CHARTS… these topics are more than enough to clear the quantitative…LET ME CLEAR THIS POINT THAT TIME MANAGEMENT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING..

Section B: this part was verbal non- verbal reasoning…this part was very confusing…in earlier exams i saw there were some similar type of ques. like if there is ODD MAN OUT then there will b 5 ques. under that topic…but in our exam i saw all the ques. were of different type…so prepare well for dis part…cover all types from the book… I THINK THIS PORTION MADE THE DIFFERENCE…SO COVER ALL THE TYPES …

Section C : this portion was English…english was also easy…i think anybody who has cleared 12th exam in english medium can do it,,,only challenging part was Antonyms and Synonyms. the words were like totally unknown…prepare for antonyms and synonyms…IN THE END THERE WAS A PASSAGE…I WAS ALSO OK.. I HAVNT FOLLOWED ANY BOOK FOR ENGLISH… I THINK THERE IS NO NEED …JUS GO FOR QUANT AND VERBAL NON VERBAL… THE TRICK FOR DOING APTI IS GO FOR THE QUES. WHICH HAV MULTIPLE PARTS…LIKE FOR ONE PASSAGE U HAVE 5 QUES. OR SOME OTHER TYPE…

we had TOTAL OF 90 QUES. AND 90 MINS TO SOLVE THEM…12 TO 1:30..TIME MANAGEMENT IS VERY IMP. DONT JUS GET STUCK TO ONE PART ONLY..FIRST TRY TO ATTEMPT 20-20 QUES OF EACH PART AS THERE WAS SECTIONAL CUT-OFF…SO BE CAREFUL ABT TIME SO I CONSIDER MYSELF LUCKY THAT I WAS AMONG THOSE 190

ROUND 2: GROUP DISCUSSION…
AT ABOUT 6:30 the result for apti was announced…the different groups for GD were announced..i was in 16th group…i was very much affraid of GD but my suggestion will b “Be casual..” Just b urself…they r jus luking for Confidence and team work..dont overpower anybody..jus b cool and calm…give ur points at equal intervals…dont try to b oversmart… Topics were very…jus go thru the current affairs,,,like benazir bhutto,Nano car, india aussie cricket match ets…my topic was India australia sydney test…so i was quiet confident… use SIMPLE ENGLISH…no need to go for hard words,,,be polite and mannered…it was for 15 mins…at about 9:30 pm we were given the result of gd and forms were distributed… that form was like resume…it required ur overall performance…about ur family,school,college…all semesters…extra cullicular acivities etc etc..fill tht form carefully..it shoul match ur resume.. out of 190 students 100 were shortlisted for interview next day…

ROUND 3 : INTERVIEW…

TCS Latest Placement Papers

TCS ON 29th & 30th JANUARY:
Hi guys I am vamsi from CRR College of engineering, TCS came to our campus on 29th and 30th Jan 2010.
First there will be a pre placement talk, please listen it carefully and take some notes this may be very useful in interviews.
The exam is an online one, there is no sectional cutoff so attempt all of them. The pattern is the same as earlier.
There will be three sections.
1. Verbal-32 questions-20 minutes.
2. Aptitude section-38 questions-40 minutes.
3. Critical reasoning-12 questions-30 minutes.
Though the pattern is same the questions are a bit different from previous ones. Every person will get one section very tuff and the other two sections easy compared to it. I got verbal very toughly. The software used by them is QUBEX. There will be a timer at the top right corner of the window, after every one minute the window will refresh itself, if the time of the section is completed the next section starts immediately, so in the last minute try to attempt all the questions left because in aptitude section you will not have enough time for solving all of them.
VERBAL:
10 synonyms, 10 antonyms, passage containing 6 blanks and another passage having 6 questions.
I don’t know even one antonym and synonym I just kept B or C for all the questions. I read the passage for 7 minutes but can’t understand it properly. The question with blanks is comparatively easy one.
APTITUDE:
The questions in this section are totally different from the previous papers not even one question is repeated from them. They concentrated more on data sufficiency I got nearly 15 questions only on them and also they are very easy too.
This section is divided in to two groups.
The first one has 30 questions mainly questions on data sufficiency.
The second section has 8 questions on data interpretation. 2 parts comprising of 4 questions each. One is a passage and the other is bar or pie chart or both. It is better to answer these questions first because they are easy compared to other ones and as the time is not sufficient for answering all the questions.
I remember only a few models which I am giving here.
1.) How old will C be after 10 years? Statement 1: Five years ago the average of A and B is 15 years. Statement 2: Average age of A, B and C is 20 years now.
a) Statement 1 is sufficient to answer but statement 2 alone is not enough. b) Statement 2 is sufficient to answer but statement 1 alone is not enough. c) Statement 1 or statement 2 is alone sufficient to answer. d) Both statement 1 and statement 2 are not sufficient to answer the question. e) Both statement 1 and statement 2 are together sufficient to answer the question. Ans: e

2.) What is the ratio between two numbers? Statement 1: The sum of two numbers is twice their difference. Statement 2: The smaller number is 6. Ans: a
Options are same for all these type of questions.
3.) The sum of ages P, Q and R is 96 years. What is the age of Q? Statement 1: P is 6 years older than R. Statement 2: The total of ages of Q, R is 56 years. Ans: e
4.) What is the cost price of the article? Statement 1: The profit earned is one-third of the cost price. Statement 2: The article is sold for Rs.400. Ans: e
5.) A and B are in a partnership business of one year. At the end of the year, a profit of RS.20, 000 was earned. What is A’s share? Statement 1: A invested Rs.50, 000. Statement 2: B withdrew his capital after 8 months. Ans: d
6.) A and B together can complete a task in 7 days. B alone can do it in 20 days. What part of the work was carried out by A? Statement 1: A completed the job after A and B worked together for 5 days. Statement 2: Part of the work done by A could have been done by B and C together in 6 days. Ans: a
7.) How much time did X take to reach destination? Statement 1: The ratio between the speeds of X and Y are 3:4. Statement 2: Y takes 36 minutes to reach the destination. Ans: e
other questions can be answered very easily.
CRITICAL REASONING:
This section is same as the earlier papers i.e. most of them are from Barrons, but all the names are changed. I got a passage which is not from Barrons but it is very easy. I will give the details of the passages which I and my friends got but it is good to do all the passages in Barrons 12th edition which are having 4 or more questions. Try to solve them if not simply mug them up, even the order of questions and the options does not change.
1. Large and small universities –model paper 1–section 5–question no (8-12).
2. Eight varsity baseball players– model paper 2 – section 1 – question no (1-4).
3. Byram and Adoniaram – model paper 2 – section 6 – question no (1-4).
4. A, B, C and W may cause D– model paper 4 – section 6 – question no (8-12).
5. Scurvy- model paper 5 – section 7 – question no (21-25).
I cleared the written exam and the interviews are on the following day.
INTERVIEWS:
There said that there is no elimination after each round and once if you get in, technical, management and human resource rounds will be completed one after the other, but some of us are eliminated after technical round. The interview’s started at around 10.30 am. There is a team of 21 members from TCS. There are 10 TR, 4 MR and two HR panels.
It is good to prepare for the basic questions which are often asked and answer them with confidence, because what they check is your confidence level but not the level of knowledge you have.
1. Tell me about yourself?
2. Why TCS?
3. What do you know about TCS?
4. Why software?
5. Why should I hire you?
6. Your strengths and weakness?
7. Why your percentage is low (IF)? (My percentage is less and I faced this question in every round so guys if yours is less be prepared with a convincing answer)
It is always a good practice to ask questions when the interviewer gives you a chance. Because this shows the enthusiasm you have for the company. But don’t ask any stupid questions.
TECHNICAL ROUND:
I was called for the TR at around 2 pm, there are 2 members in the panel both are from ECE and I am from electrical.
Int1: Tell me about yourself?

Int: Do you have a pc at home? And what is its configuration?

Some of us completed the technical round in morning itself and are waiting for management round up to 3 pm and then they announced a list of 10 members who are eliminated in the technical round. Then I was called for management round.

Me: No sir. I won’t. (Who won’t?? Even the interviewer leaves the job if he gets one!!)
Int: Some more questions like goals, further studies etc.
Me: Explained them.
Int: OK. All the best.
The round is to test the management skills of a person. In most of them stress tests are done i.e. they will be asking some questions to know how you behave under stress situations, you must stick to one ans only. In my interview I was confused that I contradicted my own statement which I didn’t. They will try to confuse you but be cool and answer them with confidence.
HR ROUND:

Verbal Ability Test (40 Questions in 35 minutes)

Directions for Questions 1-5: Read the passage and answer the questions that follow on the basis of the information provided in the passage.

Much of the information we have today about chimpanzees comes from the groundbreaking, long-term research of the great conservationist, Jane Goodall.

Jane Goodall was born in London, England, on April 3, 1934. On her second birthday, her father gave her a toy chimpanzee named Jubilee. Jubilee was named after a baby chimp in the London Zoo, and seemed to foretell the course Jane’s life would take. To this day, Jubilee sits in a chair in Jane’s London home. From an early age, Jane was fascinated by animals and animal stories. By the age of 10, she was talking about going to Africa to live among the animals there. At the time, in the early 1940s, this was a radical idea because women did not go to Africa by themselves.

As a young woman, Jane finished school in London, attended secretarial school, and then worked for a documentary filmmaker for a while. When a school friend invited her to visit Kenya, she worked as a waitress until she had earned the fare to travel there by boat. She was 23 years old.

Once in Kenya, she met Dr. Louis Leakey, a famous paleontologist and anthropologist. He was impressed with her thorough knowledge of Africa and its wildlife, and hired her to assist him and his wife on a fossil-hunting expedition to Olduvai Gorge. Dr. Leakey soon realized that Jane was the perfect person to complete a study he had been planning for some time. She expressed her interest in the idea of studying animals by living in the wild with them, rather than studying dead animals through paleontology.

Dr. Leakey and Jane began planning a study of a group of chimpanzees who were living on the shores of Lake Tanganyika in Kenya. At first, the British authorities would not approve their plan. At the time, they thought it was too dangerous for a woman to live in the wilds of Africa alone. But Jane’s mother, Vanne, agreed to join her so that she would not be alone. Finally, the authorities gave Jane the clearance she needed in order to go to Africa and begin her study

In July of 1960, Jane and her mother arrived at Gombe National Park in what was then called Tanganyika and is now called Tanzania. Jane faced many challenges as she began her work. The chimpanzees did not accept her right away, and it took months for them to get used to her presence in their territory. But she was very patient and remained focused on her goal. Little by little, she was able to enter their world.

At first, she was able to watch the chimpanzees only from a great distance, using binoculars. As time passed, she was able to move her observation point closer to them while still using camouflage. Eventually, she was able to sit among them, touching, patting, and even feeding them. It was an amazing accomplishment for Jane, and a breakthrough in the study of animals in the wild. Jane named all of the chimpanzees that she studied, stating in her journals that she felt they each had a unique personality.

One of the first significant observations that Jane made during the study was that chimpanzees make and use tools, much like humans do, to help them get food. It was previously thought that humans alone used tools. Also thanks to Jane’s research, we now know that chimps eat meat as well as plants and fruits. In many ways, she has helped us to see how chimpanzees and humans are similar. In doing so, she has made us more sympathetic toward these creatures, while helping us to better understand ourselves.

The study started by Jane Goodall in 1960 is now the longest field study of any animal species in their natural habitat. Research continues to this day in Gombe and is conducted by a team of trained Tanzanians.

Jane’s life has included much more than just her study of the chimps in Tanzania. She pursued a graduate degree while still conducting her study, receiving her Ph.D. from Cambridge University in 1965. In 1984, she received the J. Paul Getty Wildlife Conservation Prize for “helping millions of people understand the importance of wildlife conservation to life on this planet.” She has been married twice: first to a photographer and then to the director of National Parks. She has one son.

Dr. Jane Goodall is now the world’s most renowned authority on chimpanzees, having studied their behavior for nearly 40 years. She has published many scientific articles, has written two books, and has won numerous awards for her groundbreaking work. The Jane Goodall Institute for Wildlife Research, Education, and Conservation was founded in 1977 in California but moved to the Washington, D.C., area in 1998. Its goal is to take the actions necessary to improve the environment for all living things.

Dr. Goodall now travels extensively, giving lectures, visiting zoos and chimp sanctuaries, and talking to young people involved in environmental education. She is truly a great conservationist and an amazing human being.

There are some men who seem to be always on the lookout for trouble and, to tell the truth, they are seldom disappointed. Listening to such men one would think that this world is one of the stormiest and most disagreeable places.

A smile is apt to be met met with a respective smile while the sneer is just as apt to provoke a snarl. Men living in the same neighborhood may live vastly different lives.

HCL Latest Placement Papers 2012

I am very thankful to http://www.aptitudecracker.in for giving me tips to crack HCL test and interviews.

I am 2010 engg passout. 19 months after passing out finally I got placed in HCL Technologies at saveetha engg, Chennai

Let me first say my interview experience.

For last 19 montths I have been searching for the right job

I started off with IBM (lost in tech test) then syntel ( lost in written) then TCS (lost in test) then Wipro, temenos, CTS, Infosys Oracle CTS testing, then few small companies. I attended nearly 12 MNC’s

I was able to clear the small companies interviews to get experience to face the big ones it really worked out! I have good analytical skill but its my attitude that made me to end up with wrong answers when I solve puzzles or problems that are to be logically solved. Whenever I go and attend an MNC I can see a crowd more than 1000’s of students to attend so I took the test of Various MNC’s with a negative thinking that I won’t be selected, I naturally get frustrated by seeing the paper.

Even though easy but lazy to solve. Its all attitude problem. So please friends dont get afraid by seeing crowds think that it’s Your day and take the test. Before that look upon your attitude and be cool.

I attended the HCL test on 23rd Janunary, 2011. The test was conducted by aspiring minds

Three sections were there.

1. Verbal

4. Tech comprehension

8 question 12 minutes

Comprehsenion based on unit testing and 6th sense technology ( pranav mistry) I found it easy to solve because I am From IT

I cleared the test and was called for interview on 30th Janunary, 2011 at the same college

Interviiew was a calk walk. For me It was a Tech and HR interview.

I was asked about my projects challenging modules in that. I did nearly 3 projects in ns2, mainframes and php. Explained with full energy. The HR liked my way of speaking and attitude. He asked about my personal life. etc etc and finally asked are you ready to learn from HCL? I confidently said Yes. It neva looked like a technical interview it lasted 4 10 mins.

So friends be good in English speak cofidently. Say sorry if you don’t know anything.Then The most important thing is Attitude.

See you at HCL.
