First round was anQuantative Aptitude round, where we have to answer the online questions through touch stone software developed by IIT Madras students. This database have 3 lac questions, out of 3 lac we ll prompt to 35questions and time limit is 60 mins. For every correct answer we have 1 mark and for every wrong answere 0.33 mark llbe deduced (one mark for 3 wrong answers). Questions were mainly from age, ratio proportional, speed and distance, sequence, probability, work and time, average, blood relation, area and volume and one logical question. I dont remember all questions, but the questions was lengthy which may carry irrelevant datas for exact question.. The matter is we have to pick out the right part from question as soon as possible (15 to 20 secs), because our average time for each question is 1.5min. As for study material just use RS agarwal Quantitative aptitude book, that is enough. But you must be very much clear about the concepts behind solving problems. Sorting out different type of problems for eg.in section speed and distance, we can have relative speed problem, km/hr to m/sec conversion type problems, speed of train problems, like wise. I suggest you all to sort out these type of problems from rsagarwal and let get clear about the required datas to solve the problem. This may help you in exam to quickly understand the question (which is very much necessary for this exam). And another notable point is you cannot find these questions anywhere else. (nothing from any book). Some of questions in exam, which I remember is as follows: 1. 6 persons standing in queue with different age group, after two years their average age will be 43 and seventh person joined with them. hence the current average age has become 45. find the age of seventh person? Solution: Here the question appear as an easy one, but carried a lot of unwanted sentences and unwanted datas (i dint mention above) in exam which may confuse you on solving technique. Let x be current average age of first 6 persons in queue and current age of seventh person be y. Then 6x will become the sum of those 6 persons age. Now, let compute the sum of those 6 persons after two years, 6x+12 (as each and individual increase their age by 2). hence its average become (6x+12)/6 = 43 (give in question itself). So now we can compute x from above equation. (x = 41, 6x = 246) Let now we compute y, ((6x+y)/7) = 45, as we have value of x, compute y. Ans: 69

hence first try to understand the question well. 15. and it crossed two small street with 200 mts length. one logical problem stating the colour of beer? Ans: white.5km/hr. 3.15. but the actual question was somewhat twist mentioning fibonacci series and more over question was in statements (no numbers). how many time 6 will appear in building numbering? Ans: For 1 to 10 ± 1 six 2 to 20 ± 1 six Similarly upto 59 we utilise six.7.31 (3+4 =7. horse crossed 10 mts road and two small pounds with depth 3m. Hence speed of dog = 132/8 = 16. After traveling 6 hrs. In Tnagar many buildings were under residential category. 45. 22 . I think no need of explanation) 6: If we subract a number with y. ? . . 15+16=31) Similarly for second group (22. as we take y as 6) 7. 2hrs after sunset it got dog. Horse started to chase dog as it relieved stable two hrs ago. 7+8 =15.2. 3. compute the speed of dog? Ans: As we have speed and travel time of horse. And horse started to ran with average speed 22km/hr. Exactly this 132km was travelled by dog in 8 hours (as it started two hours earlier). here let group alternate terms 3. hence ans = 5+11+3 = 19 Ans:19. we can get distance travelled by it« Hence d = 22*6 = 132km. ((4x+3y)+(5x+9y))/(5x+5y) = ? as (x/2y) = 2 Ans: 2 (simple algebra.? (22+23 = 45.. 45+46 = 91) hence ans is 91. 31 Solution: Here it appear simple. because it arranged in arranged in sequence manner. Find that number?? Ans: 12 (we can easily predict from options. corporation numbered between 150 and 200 only prime numbers. I dont remember exactly the question. we get 4 increase of number.45. 7. 5. once it got divided by y itself. 5 times from 60 to 69 (including 66) ± 11 times from 70 to 100 ± 3. For shops. 4..5km/hr Ans: 16.for buildings they number as 1 to 100.
