This is the new pattern of IBM. this new pattern has been implemented. it contains 3

1.if column1 , Column 4 r interchanged and row3 , row4 r interchanged and diagonal elements from top left to bottom right r written in reverse order then what is the element in row1 and column 1? 2.if Z’s in odd numbered rows r replced with 7’s and S’s in odd numbered columns r

this secton is little bit tough.Negative marking(1/4) is 2.42.44 SECTION-3 Negative marking(1/4) is there for this section. 17..time is very very very imp 4this section frnds dont get confused really very simple section and 1more thing is the invigilaor signals time 4 every 30 EX: Ans..

SECTION-2 All questions in this section r from number series. of Questions r 15.questions 12.34.19.19.35. what is the element left to H? In this section they gave around 4 matrices of this type and gave some questions for each matrix..20.. No negative marks for this section.42...____ 22.34..time 15 minutes.replaced with 5’s then which column elements sum equals to 9? 3. 2..44.44..

10. 6. then enter your TIN(Test Identification No. Here no GD was been conducted directly they switched to the Communication Test :Detail about IBM Voice/Communication test First they'll conduct a written test of 10 mins and 15 questions of simple english. articles. you have to make a call to the given no. if the 80% of the total work is done by machine A. In first weak 75 books are used. A computer shop consists 3 brand’s alptop . After 4 years what will be the difference in the amount spent by the both companies on the TRUCK. then what is the total percentage of wastage. .Laptop of brand A is sold 3/16. 7. and 40% of work done by machine B are wasted.then after 8.

Printer A prints 8192 character per min and printer B prints 13862 character per min four character are equal to one word. Rectangular room has width half of its length. 4. in second 95. Printer A starts at 7:15 am while Printer B starts at 7:29 am then at what time both will have same no of words printed. in third 95 and in fourth 160 books are used.then tell how much mixing width 11 then fraction rs/kg its and area 2 rs/kg is of rice. width.(Similar Question) should hire 20% of 30 professional r mathematician how many mathematician it so the ratio vll become 10/11 3. The rate of color toner increases $33 to $35 and rate of black&white toner increases $28 to $29. Then after that they will give you the cell phone and . It contains about .

This is the most important round and the most of the guys had been eliminated from this round only. . 3rd round "Make senetence from Jumble words" The server will pronounce some jumbled words and u have to make senetence from that U can't add ur own words/articals/adjectives and all to make the sentences..

(BEFORE) (BRANCHES) (24) (EYES) the whole process will take 10-12 min.percentage. The the interview . The problem people face is understanding the sentences.25 is there)(qns were from profit and loss.
