Wat I felt with this test was it was better
to go thro all the 100 ques, cos some easy
ones were there at the last. If U think U

next one. Some of the ques were very easy,
even U no need to use
pen and paper.

Verbal

Find the Wrongly Spelt word

Synonym

Antonym

Fill in the blanks

Aptitude (purely mathematical)

- Better have a look at the previous 1998 qn
paper, from that we got many questions.

- strong analytical geometric and
mensurational skills needed.

Computer Awareness

regarding 2 pseudocodes given

Time Constraint was the big thing, u cannot
complete the paper if u solve all the qns,

GD rules, and create ur oppurtunities for

conversation going on, 'its pretty sure that

the case in our group", i followed GD rules
and i missed it out.

}

Print s

for given values of a,b find the output

5questions for different values of a,b

41. Input a,b

Tips

1. Do the coding first and you are out -
They are time consuming - Save the worst for
last

2. Be choosy - take the easy (questions)
first - So scan scan scan

3. best path in hexaware tree

easy sums ----->

difficult sums---->

coding

do this or find the path to your home.

4.SPEED kills but also wins. Put your brain
in 5th gear

5.Blind goose guess - mark a or e - they are
more probable

6. Write your q paper code proper or your
