22)meaning of inert
If any are there rao will send you. Prepare well
for the interview. Mostly on graphics , geometry .Prepare questions like
(for interview)Prove some of the angles in a triangle are 180.Angle in a
half circle is 90.How will you measure hight of building when you are at
the top of the building and if you have stone with you.

Best,
