DRDO Sample Paper

It contained 2 parts PART 1 – pure technical 100 ques. and Part 2 50 Ques.
Part 1 was purely technical but I was hard 2 answer part 2 general Knowledge abt 20-25ques were from
maths remaining from general.They collected the question paper back. Iam herewith attaching some of
the questions that noted down at hall.
