Hi friends,

Am Rohan Shetty, took the engineers india exam for management trainee on the July 11,2010 at Kochi.My subject is mechanical engineering. There were a total of 150 questions : 50 questions frm English,aptitude and gk,100 questions from subject.1 mark for a correct answer and 0.25 negative mark.The aptitude questions take time and akin to the type normally seen in management questions. The gk part was more concentrated on current affairs and rather than Indian history ,geography etc.English part needs some preparation and was not easy.The vocabulary part was tough but only about 5 questions ,should be easy for those who prepare for mba entrance I think. In many cases I have only indicated the portion from which the questions came as the exact wording and options are hard to remember.

For the subject part, majority of the questions were from refrigeration and thermodynamics. Many questions like figure based and assertion reason type, which of these statements are true etc will check the depth of our knowledge of the fundamentals , mugging objective questns from guides will not help to answer majority of the questions though there were some typical questions usually asked. There maybe mistakes in the way I remembered the questions but the specific subject areas from where they were asked is clear.

Aptitude questions were puzzle type

1. 2 ppl A and B play a game with 10 matchsticks.A plays first.Aperson can take a max of 3 matchsticks during a chance.The person who has the least number of matchsticks at the end of the game loses.

How many matchsticks must A take each time to ensure a win?

If A takes only 2 matchsticks in the 1st chance,how many shud he take in each subsequent chance to ensure a win?

Some 4 questions based on this puzzle.

2. A boy has 127 rupees with him in 1 rupee coins.He must fill it in piggy banks so that he can hand out any amount without breaking open the piggy bank.what r th min number of piggy banks required?
