Talisma Placement Paper : Talisma Placement Paper Christ University Bangalore 8 September 2010

1) A tank is filled 1 liter in a hour and 2ltrs in 2hrs 3ltrs in 3 hrs so on. 1/3rd is filled in 2nd hr how much time will it take to fill the tank?

Ans: Let the capacity of tank be �x� then

1/3*x=2(as i/3rd of tank is filled in 2 hrs thatis 2 liters)

X=6(from above eqn i.e, tanks capacity is 6 litres)

2) Out of 7 children the youngest is boy then find the probability that all the remaining children are boys

Ans: 1/2^6 = 1/64

3) The three sides of a triangle are given. 16, 14, 21 cms and this triangle is conveted into a square. So what will be the area of the square generated?

Ans:(14+16+21)/4. Then you will get the 1 side of a square and now find the area of a square.ie, side^2

4) An equation of the form 4x+6y-2z=32 . Find the difference between x intercept and z intercept?Ans: x/a+y/b+z/c=

5) A Toy train can make 10 sounds sound changes after every 4 mins, now train is defective and can make only 2 sounds. Find probability that same sound is repeated 5 times consecutively (1 out of)?
Ans: 1/32

6) 20men and 20 women are there, they dance with each other, is there possibilty that 2 men are dancing with same women and vice versa.
Ans: Never

7) 10 people are there, they are shaking hands together, how many hand shakes possible, if they are in no pair of cyclic sequence.
Ans: 9

8) In school there are some bicycles and 4wheeler wagons. One Tuesday there are 234 wheels in the campus. How many bicycles are there?

Ans: Bicycles=2*x ; wagons=4*y

=>2*x+4*y=234

=>y=(234-2*x)/4(eqn to find no of wagons)

=>x=(234-4*y)/2(eqn to find no of bicycles)(sub the options the option for which you get the whole no as ans that would be the answer; because you can never have tyres in decimals and negative)

9) 4 years before Paul�s age is 3times the Alice age and the present age of Paul is 6times the Alice. What is the presents Paul�s age?

Ans: x-4 = 3(y-4); x=6y: Solve you will get it.

10) In a question, last part has, the ages of two people has the ratio of 6:5 and by adding the numbers we get 55, after how many years the ratio would be 8:7?
Ans: Easy you can do it, simple equtions

11) Question based on V=I*R but in this question most of data given are ridiculas like volume, density, length, height similar long story are given

Solution: Just take the values of V,I ,R and substitute in V=I*R(you have to find either i/v/r do not concentrate on all other data)

12) Peter and Paul are two friends. The sum of their ages is 42 years. Peter is twice as old as Paul was when Peter was as old as Paul is now. What is the present age of Peter?

13) A horse chases a pony 2 hours after the pony runs. Horse takes 4 hours to reach the pony. If the average speed of the horse is 81 kmph, what s the average speed of the pony? (This question was really long with loads of irrelevant statement)

14) Difference between two numbers is 4 and their product is 17. Then find the sum of their squers?

15) A, B, C, D, E are there among A, B, C are boys and D, E are girls D is to the left of A and no girl sits at the middle and at the extemes. Then what is the order of their sittings.
16) Direction problems. A man goes 50 km North, then turned left walked 40 km, then turned right? In which direction is he in?
Ans: North

17) In a market 4 man are standing the avg age of the four men before 4 yrs is 45 ,aftrsumdays one man is added and his age is 49.wat is the avg wt ofg all??
18) A book contain 40 sheets and n each sheet contain 40 statements and it says that most of them are false?
a) All odds are false b) All evens are false c) Neither odd nor even are false d) NoneMumbai buildin
Ans: b

19) Mumbai building dept decided to give no�s to building. 1-100 nos are given to buildings lng story. Find how many number of 2�s were used while numbering the buildings(simple jst count no of 2�s frm 1 to 100 lyk 2,12,20,21,22,23,24,25,26,27,28,29,32,42,52,62,72,82,92)

All the best guys

Talisma Placement Paper : Talisma Placement Paper Technical C 31 December 2010

paper 1

section one

15 questions (data sufficiency)
a alone is sufficient
b alone is sufficient
a and b are both sufficient
a and b both are insufficient

section two

very easy

section three

15 questions (logical reasoning)
a pare is given and some hints are given u can fine out the ans

one hotel has two zones (east and west) not all east zone flats have ocean view but all weat zone flats have harbour view all ocean view flats has extra charge in harbour view flats above and on 3rd floor have extra charge west zone flats lower than 3rd floor some has kitchen so extra charge all other flats of east zone not having ocean view has kitchen so extra charges

section four

10 questions verbal reasoning four or five sentences are given related to single topic four options are given which are having order of three sentences(abe or bec) select correct order

sections five

five computational questions which were easy

* total 12 members half are in club a one third in b and one fourth in c how many are not in any club
ans 5(check)

these type of questions u can find in
R. S. Agrawal
or IMS package of CAT

in question it was written that all five sections carry their cutoffs so attempt all but in electrical one guy was selected who didnot attempt reading comprehension but attempted all 45 questions this paper also has negative marking of 50%

paper 2

1.what does p in
const char *p
stands for
p can be changed like this

2.main()
sturct date {
char name;
int age ;
float sal;
};
sturct data d ={"rajesh"};
printf("%d%f",d.age,d.sal);
}
tell the output

3.main()
int i=7;
printf("%d"i++*i++);
output

4.void main()
{
int d ;
int i=10;
d =sizeof(++i);
printf("%d");
output

5.difference between
extern int f();
int f();

6.choose correct
(i)stack is automatically cleared
(ii)heap is automatically cleared
(iii)user has to clear stack and heap
(iv)system takes care of ----------

7. What,ll be the output:
main()
{char *a,*f();
a=f();
printf("%s",a);
}
char *f()
{return("Hello World");

8.What,ll be the output:
main()
{char*a,*f();
a=char*malloc(20*sizeof(char));
a=f();
printf("%s",a);
}
char *f()
{char n;
strcpy(n,"Hello World");
return(n);
}
9.What is the error :
main()
{int j=10;
switch(j)
{ case 20:
pritnf("Less than 20");
break;
case 30:
printf("Less than 30");
break;
default:
printf("hello");
}

10.which is valid :
(i)char arr;
arr="hello";
(ii) char arr[]="hello";

11.
main()
{
char *str;
str=char*malloc(20*sizeof(char));
strcpy(str,"test");
strcat(str,,!,);
printf("%s",str);
}

12. How many times main is get called :
main()
{
printf("Jumboree");
main();
}
ans: till stack overflow.

13. Which statement is true about main :
(i) Varible no. of Arguments can be passed main.
(ii) Main can be called from main();
(iii) We can,t pass arguments are passed in main
(iv) main always returns an int

14. Output ?
main()
{
int i,j;
for(i=0,j=0;i<5,j<25;i++,j++);
printf("%d %d",i,j);
}

15.main()
{
int i;
if(i=0) //it,s assisnment not logical operator
printf(" Hell ");
else
printf("Heaven");
like this
no negative marking and more than one answers but paper I is cutoff paper i think c paper will not be checked

Interview

they will give u puzzles in first round which will be from site techinterview.org this site has 70 puzzles and their answers so go through them

second round has c coding of data structure circular quese,tree etc also questions from c and c++ like virtual functions
far near huge memory concepts like heap,stack etc

then in third round hr questions like hobbies and interets make ur curriculam vite and bring it with ur file

they want people with good aptitude in interview rounds ur aptitude and approach matters so solve puzzles.
