book..just do these topics

at the end.it had 5 sub divisions Something like… P,Q,R and S are standing at
the 4 corners of a square…n/w ,n/e,s/w n s/e respectively… N something like…If

they tend find something complicated in that.but the fact is it is v simple 5 figures
in a series were given n we had to find the ODD figure..five same kind of
questions.. like out of five geometrical shapes 4 were divided into 4 equal
parts,but one of them was having 5 parts.. thats it also like a rectangle shifting by
angle 45 in a circle in every figure..but there was a tiny circle besides that
rectangle(ppl may think it is a printing mistake,and dont give it importance),but tht
tiny circle was missing in one of the diagram..so tht was odd figure..similar kind
of silly questions were there.

4) ANOTHER PUZZLE KIND OF QUESTION. It was damn easy…it was like MR.
natwarlal,a thief..steals only on the first day of every month of first quarter of
year(that means on 1st jan,1st feb,1st march)..this time he wanted a
computer..so he steals different parts from different persons. but he has only 3
tools to use.like a screwdriver,wirecutter,knife.AND uses them only once.he
steals monitor,keyboard and printer..in jan he steals monitor from A,but do not
uses the wirecutter..next month he uses KNIFE to steal printer..and march was

consume a lot of time..

difference..mark the one which is grammatically correct..look for spelling
mistakes..grammar errors etc… 5 questions based on choose the best option to

EASILY..JUST REFER YOUR ANY HIGH SCHOOL GRAMMER BOOK.
STEP 5: HR INTERVIEW
In the HR round u are basically asked abt ur self, ur r?sum?. There are no tech
questions asked n even if asked it will be very basic stuff… They also ask
puzzles…u need not solve them..they only look at ur approach..
The questions I was asked..
1) Tell me abt ur self
2)being a electronics student WHY u want job in software indutsry
3)WHY I HAVE NOT DONE ANY PROJECT???????????????
4)and they asked abt my hobbies,my achievements,extra curricular activities(so
mention everything properly in ur resume,they will ask questions based on what
all youu hav written in ur resume)
They hardly eliminated people in the HR..it is enough if u speak confidently..yes
B confident,and dont try to bluff them..and dont try to memorise any answer..they
will find out..even u have memorized,atleast pretend to think when u answer.
Getting thru Infy is not tough at all…If ur good with ur Apti n have a good

2.English
General Aptitude:

4. No Blood relation questions!!
English:
1. 2 RCs

After written exam, only HR of about 15-20 min on an average were taken which
include very general HR questions, specially related to the CV and the

I was a bit nervous during the interview and my lips were getting dried as I was
interviewed in the same way by WIPRO but God knows why I was not selected.
Always try to say the truth the INFY people bring H.R professional from the meta-
i group. They all are above age 40. They are quite experienced professionals. so
don’t bluff; some of my friends have been caught bluffing .
Fresher world. Com is really helpful for me as it gives most recent campus

Selection Procedure:
Infosys is such a company where there is no barrier in stream. That means
students from any stream can sit in Infosys. There are no direct Technical round
in Infosys.
The whole Selection Process contains two section Aptitude test.
>Analytical & Logical reasoning:(30 question : 40 minutes)
>English section: (40 question : 35 minutes)

>Verbal & Non verbal-R.S . Agarwal.
>Some Time’s CAT study materials.
>And of course last but not least Freshers World (Be Regular & update with this

Analytical & Logical reasoning
Friends I have not remembered the order of questions but I am telling the
questions in such a order that I follow and I am sure that you also get advantage
if you solve question in such order.
>Syllogism: (5 question) – Friends not only in Infosys but also in others first
attempt this question. It is very easy to solve.
Question Pattern: Statement: All A is B. Some B is C.
Conclusion: I,II
You have no need to memories all the rule of R.S. Agrawal and even you have
no need to draw vein Diagram to solve it, If you follow Time’s CAT materials.
There is very simple rule in Time’s materials by which you can solve a syllogism
with in 15 sec.
>Figure Series: (5 questions)- This is really very simple. For practice see Agrawal.
But don’t waste too much time for it.
>Dice & Cube Problem:(5 questions)- In my apti the prob was like below:
A cube is given and is painted six side with six diff colors.
Red is adjacent of yellow and green.
Pink is opposite of yellow.
Brown is in the bottom face
Now Q:1)Which color is in the top face?
Q:2) Which color in the opposite face of Red?
But there may also come others pattern:

There is a cube and it is cut in 27/64/125 equals pieces of cube. Now two face is
colored with black, two green, two red.
Q: No of cube which is painted three faces…No of Uncolored cube…..
Just see 3-5 Example from Agrwal It will come in ur hand.
>Puzzel: (5 questions) – Keep ur head cool for these question. I know puzzle
makes everyone puzzeled. Read the question carefully draw the diagram, matrix
and put the data one by one according to given information. I am sure that every
one can solve it.
>Data Interpretation: (5 question) – A chart, graph, table will be given….and you
have to solve some problem on statistics. It will too much time conserving section
so do it at last…..and also follow the Option elimination process.
English Section:
Friends I am really very week in this section. But as I have cleared so you can
clear it easily.
>Two passages and 5 question from each passages: Do it at the last. And before
reading the passage see the question one time.
>Sentence Correction: Be care about tense mistake, spelling mistake, using of
pronoun…..
>Fill in the Blanks: Gain a details idea on preposition, phrase, idioms.
>Theme Detection.
HR Interview
Now the final section. The only one solution to crack the interview is keeping
yourself cool. Friends believe me the Infosys HR panel are the coolest person in
the world(At least for my panel). And always think that they are taking your
Interview to sect you , Not to reject you. Be friendly, polite with them……
I was in the two persons’ panel. And I was interviewed two times. After
Completing the first interview one interviewer told me “Shubhadip, we are very
sorry, Please wait for 5 min outside, we may call you again. ”

Test Location : JIITU Noida, UP
Hi friends, I am Piyush Gaur from JIIT Noida. INFOSYS came to our campus on
12th and 13th of March. Three colleges participated namely JIIT Noida, JUIT
Waknaghat(Solan) and JIET Guna.
No. of students appeared:
JIIT – 470
JUIT – 280
JIET – 183
No. of students selected after written test:
JIIT – 320
JUIT – 160
JIET – 70
No. of students finally selected:
JIIT – 293 (I was luckily among them :-))
JUIT – 140
JIET – 41
Guys I think most of you must be knowing what Infosys and who all eligible
(infact everybranch is eligible, one just have to clear that % criteria).
Eligibility Criteria – 60% X 60% XII and 60% in all previous semesters. (For
B.Tech only,MCA and M.Tech students do consult your TPO)
Now before the written test there was a presentation in that we were told that try
getting atleast 20 correct in both Analytical & Logical Reasoning section as well
as Verbal section. There is no funda like upper cut off and no negative marking
so attempt all the questions.
At that time only the person told us that they are expecting around 500 selections
so that was something which really gave us confidence.
LOGICAL REASONING PART Questions: 30 Time: 40 mins
Ques 1-5. It was a puzzle test on 7 people (A,B,C,D….G) playing cards. 100
cards were there distributed equally among them then there were some
transactions like A got 5 cards from E etc etc…. something like this. Ques 6-10.
All question were based on finding odd one out from the given figures. All were
easy.
Ques 11-15: Then came the Syllogisms 6 statements were given namely
A,B,C,D,E & F. Then from the options we were to find which of them follow. Eg.
options are 1. ABD 2. BEF 3. BDE 4.
ACF 5. None of these. So work in a reverse manner i.e from Answer to question.
Ques 16-20: A Data Interpretation question usually while solving the RS Agarwal
you wont find them difficult but this one was not that easy. 2 graphs were given
Submit your resume to [email protected]
Page 42 of 377

(both of them were line graphs) one was Liabilities as expenditure on safety
mining. Another was percentage increase in liabilities per year. Language of the
question was not that easy it demanded 2-3 readings. One ques I found to be
bouncer type.
Ques 21-25: Another puzzle was there this one was pretty simple than the
previous one. Can be found in RS Agarwal Verbal and Non-Verbal. 6 aspirants
were there preparing for bank examination RBI, ICSB and Andhra Bank. 3 males
and 3 females with the given information make a table then apply logic to
complete it.
Ques 26-30: Then came the Data Sufficienct part again it was easy I think only
one of them was bouncer type rest all were fine and easy.
AFTER A BREAK OF 5 MINUTES next paper is distributed of:
VERBAL PART Questions: 40 Time: 30 mins
There were 2 passages for reading comprehension both were easy. There there
were sentence correction type questions those were also fine. Then came the fill
in the blanks. Then there were questions in which we were asked to find
grammatical mistakes that was also quite easy.
Overall verbal section was easy than the logical aptitude section. This is what I
felt and my other friends. Results were declared after 3 hours. Then Interviews
started since due to large no. of selections most of the interviews were taken on
the following day i.e. 13th or march.
This one was mine Interview:
Piyush: Good Afternoon sir
Interviewer: Good afternoon, have a seat.
P: Thank you sir
I: So u r from biotech, y did u opted for it most of the girls opt for this field:
P: No sir its not like that its just the matter of interest and I found biotech a diff.
and upcoming field.
I: What type of career u r expecting from biotech.
P: Sir if I had to pursue my career in biotech only then i’ll opt for Bioinformatics.
(Then he had a breif look at my resume)
I: Ok tell me what all you learned from ur last project?
P: Blah Blah Blah Blah…
I: Have u done any group project?
P: Yes Sir
I: What difficulties u faced in that?

complete story of Infosys from my side. After clearing the written one thing is
sure that u r 90% selected 10% depends on interview just dont spoil it. Answer

INFOSYS PAPER ON 12th MARCH 2008
Paper Type : Candidate Experiences
Test Date : 12 March 2008
Test Location : Mody Institute of Tech & Science, Lakshmangarh
Hello People!! first of all ….all the very best for ur Infy Exam…. Infy is my dream
company …n its the fourth company i have cracked after Satyam, TCS, and
Accenture…feels like heaven!!!!!!!! anyways people who still dnt have a job…don’t
worry infy won’t leave u disappointed..’coz it took a lot of people from my college
about 200 people appeared for the test
about 132 got shortlisted for the interview…
and 115 got selected…..
huge number isn’t it????
Written Exam
Carry ur marksheets they need ur xact marks of coll, X n XII n they verify those
so be careful ur CV also has the consistent data
Analytical Section
30 ques 40 min
Here u got to be 100% involved in the paper…don’t assume the analytical part to
be too simple ‘cz so many ppl qualified…max. of my freinds were preparin for
MBA n that’s the reason of so many selections……
so regarding analytical
1.10 questions puzzle type- prepare analytical problem from Puzzle test R.S
Aggarwal….but they are actually too simple n infy asks a bit higher than
those…similar to those of Barrons 12th edition
2. 5 ques- syllogism…remember all rules from again R.S Aggarwal Verbal Non-
Verbal
Submit your resume to [email protected]
Page 44 of 377

3. 5 ques-Conclusion, In Conclusion Questions dnt assume anything on ur
own…just imagine u know nothing about the topic and all u know is what is
written in the question and then read the options
4. 5 ques figure -odd one out -Well, I attepted figure questions the firt ‘coz they
were too easy n no need practising the 500 questions in RS.
5. 5 ques DI- pie chart type…practice 4m RS Quanti
so that was analytical….u may go without ne preps also but with a fresh mind and
then solve questions with all ur effort…but manage time well
Verbal Section
40 ques 35 min
Now this depends 4m person 2 person…since i always loved English…this was
very easy 4 me…
Now certain tips here
1. While chosing sentence correction questions read all the options
simultaneously.. i mean read first 4 words of all options n then proceed with the
options u feel may be right….prepositions, tenses is a must practice for ppl who
confuse in these. There were 8 ques

INFOSYS PAPER ON 11th MARCH 2008
Paper Type : Candidate Experiences
Test Date : 11 March 2008
Test Location : CCET Chandigarh
Hello people, Infy came for the closed campus in our college on 11th March. 2
other colleges were also invited for the same.
Well, the first step was the Presentation which lasted for about an hour. Here,
they tell you about Infy, show some videoes, your package, where you will be
placed and all. Better to clarify your all doubts here only as they can trap you in
the interview using the same weapon.
Then we all were taken to the Test-rooms and given out Test papers.
Format was same,
30 Ques for non-verbal in 40 min.
40 Ques for english in 35 min.
Submit your resume to [email protected]
Page 46 of 377

The Non-verbal was a good paper, I was able to solve the first 20 ques in about
first 20 minutes. The rest were a bit difficult but you can say that you get through
if you work hard enough.
Then comes English : I don’t why people hype this paper so much, the paper is
quite easy. The only thing is the passages. They are very long and require one
hell lot of a time. I got about 30 ques in 20 minutes so I was left with ample time
for the passages.
However, If you got 30 ques, then consider yourself to be clear for the interview.
The cutoff is around 23-24 for this section and about 15 for the non-verbal
section.
Okay here are the stats upto this point:
Total students: Around 350.
Selected for Interview: 86 from 130 (Our college) and 76 from the other ones.
Then the interviews started.
Just remember one thing : If you got the test, you get the job.
Interviews are just a formality.
Okay here is mine:
Me: Good evening etc etc.
Int: Welcome, please close the door and have a seat.
Me: Thank you sir.
Int: Tell me about urself.
Me: Blah Blah Blah…….
Int: Okay, you are made the project manager for a single day job. U needhow
many people ?
Int: Okay, I give you 4. How will you manage ? (Gives paper) Tell the whole
schedule.
Me: Blah Blah Blah…….
Int: 2 Puzzles, very simple. Was able to solve both of them.
Thats what happened in my interview. The HR was very very cool person. A lot
of talk about my girlfriend and all. Also about my car and changing tyres etc.
You get the idea what its all about.
After the interview was over,we waited for about 2 hours, then the Results came.
The stats:
Appeared for interview: 86 from ours and 76 from other.
Selected: 83 from our college and 56 from the other. Whoa ?!!!
We shouted and screamed like little kids and went out to the parking and
danced ….. at 1 AM in the morning !
Submit your resume to [email protected]
Page 47 of 377

Then they came and told us that from now on you will be called as Infoscions and
learn to spell the name correctly….
And that my friends, is the story of Infy.
Best of luck to all and Just be confident.
P.S. I didn’t prepare anything for the test. Not even a single page. Aptitude is
how’s your mind built and English is what you read n newspapers everyday. Be
calm and get the job. Remember this only.

Hi,friends this is rajdeep banerjee from netaji subhash engineering
college,kolkata. here am going to describe my experience in INFOSYS
CAMPUS RECRUITMENT DRIVE that was held on 22nd of feb 2008…n i was
one of the lucky ones to get selected…
any way first of all friends i wud like to say that don’t be tensed about
infosys ..bcoz i personaly think that there on-campus recruitment procedure is
easier than that of other companies…
Our aptitude test was held in Rajarhat technoindia college…we arrived there at 8
a.m from 9-15 the p.p.t(pre-placement talk)started..the person from infosys
conducting the ppt was very jolly n smart ..he told us abt infy..its projects n
all …he also asked everyone to say the logo color of infy ..n told us that wh’wud
give the right answer wud definitely get worth Rs.500…
anyway none of us answered correctly…friends the color is “PANTON
285C”..then we were asked to go to respective rooms to sit for aptitude
test…friends its consists of two parts one is verbal reasoning n logical ,the other
is english..anyway friends be prepared 4 the apti..u can follow verbal n non-
verbal reasoning by r.s.agarwal..n u can follow the recent mba entrance papers
too…it was easy..the puzzles n quantative reasoning given was not at all
difficult..if u ave the ability to solve the puzzles ,,then u can do the trick…now in
english my advice is to solve cat papers or other mba papers..there were two
passages n u have to answer from those..also others were correcting sentence
structure..etc..but no synonym or antonym was given i think it’s not required 4
infy to practise those stuffs..if u r good in english ..then the the paper was dump
easy 4 u..as far as i can remember i correctly answer each one..totally 70 marks
apti it was..n 40 marks was 4 english…so practise it …anyway time might be the
factor of someone..there was no negaive markng…then the result was declared n
i was there…we all then went to Techno India ,Saltlake…honestly speaking i was
a bit nervous at that time..though i desparately wanted Infy..4 some reason ….
note that in Infy there’s no technical interview…only H.R. interview is there….
when my turn came..i was absolutely tensed.. really my palms were sweating n
my heart beat was growing fast…then i entered. .n here is the conversation….
Me: Good Evening mam,
Madam :thank u rajdeep ..pls be seated..
Me: thank u..(n sat with a smile on my lips..)
Madam: here i see u have passed from mahesh sri ramakrishna ashram..is it a
branch of belur math..?
Me: actually it’s not directly connected to it..bt it’s connected to other missions..n
exlained plainly..
Madam: tell me abt yourself…. my god that was my question i was very much
prepared..told about my qualities..,my participation in cultural progarmmes..how i

Page 50 of 377

worked as a team..n how i inspired others..my hobbies at last…frnd don’t say ur
c.v ..say abt urself …think about urself ..ur achievements…n say everything good
abt urself…
Madam: do u like to work as a team member or a team leader..??
me: it’s always been a pleasure to be a part of the team…n if i can be leader
then it’ll be cherry over cake…n explained how i worked in local book
fair…etc…friends just try to convince them that u r in a position to be a part of the
company..u have the dedicated soul …etc …
Madam: have u ever got angry…
Me: don’t try to fool, them n be honest..also give an example how u ot angry at a
particular situation n for that reason u did a better job..so that negativity of u ‘ll
reflet ur positive personality..that’s the trick…
Madam: do u read story books..ur fav author…
Me: rabindranath tagore…
that was all at last she sighned me a paper n thanked me..i replied my
thanks…don’t shake ur hand..unless the interviewer shakes..anyway fortunately i
was not asked puzzles…bt friends my advice is to get ready 4 the puzzles..those
cud be asked any time…
then after 2 hrs of waiting our name was declared..n i was one of the lucky
ones …frm our stream(cse)10 were selected… that’s all over..absolutely i was
very happy…. that’s it..my friends getting infy is not the toughest job…u have to
believe urself…try to focus on what u r saying..n be positive ..don’t show over-
smartness ….best of luck to all of the future INFOSCIONS…..
HOPE THIS WILL HELP U TO REACH UR GOAL…TAHNK U…..

GROUP) and participated in the Campus recruitment drive by Infosys at Techno
India .
The campus recruitment drive consisted of three parts:
i>a ppt presentation

Page 53 of 377

nd likewise questions followed{sorry am not able to remember thm}
2.Figure out the odd figure: simple ones {refer:RS AGGARWAL ,non-verbal
reasoning,chapter:SERIES,yeah the pictorial ones}
3.a table consisting of the production of rice nd wheat from 1986 to 1996 was
given nd questions followed like:
a>ratio of rice production in the year 1989 between the North zone and the west
zone.
b>find the max. percentage increase in wheat production compared to previous
year. Nd likewise questions followed.
4.The question was a PUZZLE….it was something of the genre:-“There r 6
houses on both sides of a road.3 in each row.House A is of green colour nd is
beside house F which is just opposite to B……..” now questions followed like:
which house is the yellow house,which house is located in the middle nd so
on..{Practising the the first two chapters on PUZZLES frm RS AGGARWAL is
more than needed}
5.The questions were on syllogism.we had to find out which were logically
correct.{My suggestion is not to mug up those laws or even go for those venn
diagrams..just go by ur gut feeling nd use common sense}
2>ENGLISH
1.There were two big paragraphs,nd questions were asked from them..try them
at last bcause they r easy but time consuming.
2.rest were on basic grammar like sentence correction,choosing the right option
tht makes the sentence grammatically correct nd so on…{wht I feel is that U
don’t need to practice this section,it’s just a test of the English tht u hve learnt
frm ur nursery classes}
HR INTERVIEW
Well 52 students frm our college cleared the aptitude test..nd the HR was held
soon after.
Heres an excerpt of my Interview:

falling at a brisk pace compared to earth.

keep on xpanding?
ME :then the membrane of the balloon will burst

background,why do u want to come to the IT sector?

on the world map as a economy” nd so on..
INTERVIEWER :is the IT industry still growing as it used to b?

every industry has its ups nd downs nd I believe tht the IT industry will b able to
triumph over the difficulties.

correction……………….fill in the blanks……………….and 10 questions on drawing
conclusions from small paragraphs………………….underlined sentences

asked me how I would react in those situations
For example he asked me to relate my leadership quality with any event in

It is not tough to be selected… but remember the key to success is……………
positive attitude……You also need to have…………………..good communication

1) APTITUDE TEST

5 Questions on this.
Example : Total number of students in a class is 120.find the number of girls in
the class?
a)The number of boys in a class is 90.
b) The number of girls is about 25%.
Answer is OPTION 1 because using anyone statement you can solve the given
question.
iv](Data Interpretation): For us A BAR Graph Was Given… But here r some other
possibilities.. ie Tabular problems too..
[v] Jumbled Up Problems..[5 qns]
[vi](Syllogism) 5 Questions on these.
Example: 1.SOME BIRDS ARE STONES.SOME TIGERS ARE BIRDS.ALL
STONES ARE GRAPES. Similarly 4 qns wer given and asked that Which of the
following is More Logically correct..They have not given Conclusions.. only
Statements.
I felt that the reasoning paper was easy but the English paper was bit on the
tougher side. Anwer sheet consists of one page like the OMR sheet , you just
need to circle the correct option number and write that number in the space
provided…..with blue/black ball point pen.
(ii)ENGLISH COMPREHENSION TEST (English grammar + passages).
Questions : 40 Time : 30 minutes
1-5> Reading comprehension (easy but solve at last only, if you solve it first, you
will end-up guessing for many questions, very very lengthy)
6-10> Reading comprehension (it was too easy, try to read it fast while solving)
11-18> fill in the blanks with suitable sentences!! (easy ones according to
grammar)
19-26>choose the one among 4 suitable phrases(sentences similar to the
underlined part)for the underlined part of the given sentences. (sentence
improvement……Be careful sometimes no improvement is required choose the
same phrase)
27-34> choose correct sentence from four given sentences (easy ones but be
careful, there is only a slight difference and you have to select which is more
grammatically correct)
35-40> you have to choose which Course of Action suits best for the above given
paragraph. (Mainly this specifies your managerial abilities.) Time management is
very important, many of my friends were not able to solve all questions and even
read it. Be careful for English part because most of the candidates get rejected
here only…

Page 61 of 377

Time management is must!!! Solve passages at last… I did 30 questions in
15mins & hence got 15 mins to solve the reading comprehensions which I did at
last!! so plan the paper accordingly!! After the test results were announced in 2
hours, I was very glad to note that i was selected.. As There was sectional cut-off
wich is around 60% for reasoning & 50 % for english, very less students got
selected……(about 36 out of nearly 400 students) I have not written much about
HR interview because I felt that it was quite easy if you good communication
skill .The first 10 seconds is very important as they see how your body language
is So Be Confident . After written test results, with no time delay
HR interviews started. A panel of 4 HR`s came who were taking interview in 4
different rooms. All they check for,in HR, is your communication skills and
confidence.. They want persons with excellent communication skills.. No
technical questions will be asked.. And one more thing once you have cleared
the written test, almost 90% of your selection is confirmed. But Rejections at HR
was very much more(in our case out of 36 only 15 got rejected). So focus well on
written part & Communication skills because its the biggest barrier & once you
cross it, you are almost through!!! So friends cracking infosys paper is not a
difficult task.. All you need is little smart-work, good communication skills &
confidence as well as conviction in yourself ……….
My best wishes to all!!!My badluck is I cleared 1st round, but got rejected in HR ..

INFOSYS PAPER ON 7th FEBRUARY 2008
Paper Type : Candidate Experiences
Test Date : 7 February 2008
Test Location : Lovely Professional University, Jallandhar
Hello everyone… no wasting time on beating about the bush… coming to point,
the aptitude paper of Infosys IT sector was NOT tough, the English section WAS..
almost everyone whom i talked after the exam was telling me that apti paper ,
they cud do. but no one was sure bout english paper the pattern was the one
followed more recently in december 2007 and jan feb 2008
they gave 30 ques of apti in 40 mins and 40 ques of eng in 30 mins
apti paper :
ques no 1 – 5
ques was regarding some sign language, then a sentence was to be translated in
that language, very easy ques, no prep for this required
ques no 6 – 10
sylloligsm based but not the one given in R.S . aggarwal reasoning book.. but
practice those questions of logic from this book n u ll be able to solve those ques
ques no 11 -15
puzzle based on who teaches which subject and on which day … relatively tough
compared to one given in RS ( i assume everybody is preparing from this book,
coz i did and i can say its enough for this test)
ques no 16-20
ques on pie chart i recommend , do this one first.. coz its very easy mayb
lenghty but in the end u get the accurate result, which is required to build
confidence at start of paper..
PS – there is hardly any long calculation involved, just keep on writing
percentages like 40% of 30% of 3/12… now this is just a small example, but i
hope u got the idea… 300 😉
for pie chart ques, do atmost 5 ques from RS but solve each step of those 5 ques
and u will master them
ques no 21 -25
Submit your resume to [email protected]
Page 64 of 377

ques of data sufficency do RS , that will be sufficent…
ques no 26-30
choose the next figure, practice atleast 20 to 40 from RS reasoning, understand
the logic by reading the answers to those questions
The order of questions may vary coz i got the time to write all this after a long
gap and i dont remember the sequence….coming to english paper…. ques no 1-5
and ques 6 -10
some guys out here feel it should be done at the end but i will say do it first of all
because the questions that will follow will kill ur time , because u will just keep on
thinking bout those questions and in infy english paper TENSE FILLING
questions have almost same options so u will waste a lot of time thinking bout
them, and if u will do these at end, u will have less time to think, dont worry .. less
time or more time u will arrive to same answer because perception about tenses
remain same no matter how much time we spend reading them
In comprehension ques, search para graph wise, like the answer to first question
will be in 1st paragraph or atmost in 2nd para… so dont read the whole
comprehension, search for KEYWORDS and that also paragraph and question
wise..
ques 11 -15
give the best sentence to above para which either supports the para or means
the same as the para
ques 16-20
fill words like “will go/ would go”, i mean the most appropiate one
ques 21 -25
correct the sentence like a sentence will be given and four options will be given
the options will have the above sentence in different forms, u will have to select
the one which is technically the most accurate rest ques i dont remember now
LET me give some tips
do pie chart first of all
then do figure ques
then language
and choose the rest order by looking at question paper.
do both the comprehensions at first tick the option in english paper which u think
sounds correct, believe ur intutiveness attempt all questions as there is no
negative marking

Page 65 of 377

PRAY TO GOD BEFORE STARTING PAPER ( ATHIESTS CAN ALSO TRY )
believe in urself even if u have failed in first 10 companies, its very difficult to do i
know but just believe that today is ur day , no matter what has happened in the
past.
after u finish ur paper, the result will be announced in 3 to 4 hours , so relax and
cool down ur heels in this time, talk to ur gf, bf in bw or move around with ur
friends…. i m not telling this for making this paper funny, it will help u relax a lot,
forget the paper and dont discuss the questions… be busy eating or whatever
changes ur focus…
but be prepared with ur resume and ur formal dress coz the interview will start
shortly after the announcement of the result
i wsnt prepared with my formals , and one of my friend was without a resume and
he gave the interview without the resume and he got selected, sincere advice still,
take a copy of resume with u
the result came about at 6 pm that day and i was more than delighted to hear my
name. In all 250 odd students were selected out of 1300 ppl for interview, from
our college 24 managed to go through …
they will announce the result in decreasing order of marks obtained and IF UR
SCORE IS GOOD, the interview is mere formality
well the my interview was at 8 pm , let me tell u my rank in that list was 7th or 8th,
so i wasnt the best scorer..
my interviewer was the coolest , among all panel interviewers
INTERVIEW EXPERIENCE
I entered the room, asked for a seat and He gave me a attendence sheet to sign
he asked me to sign my resume and give it to him then while he started reading
my resume, he casually asked me, ” tell me something bout urself”
now prepare it well… i said my name is… i m frm …. my branch is …. and then i
told him some of my strong points like i m cool and composed under pressure
situations when everyone around starts to panic and few other strong points
then he asked me every question based on my resume so i wont mention again n
again he asked me what have i done in my 2 months training and interrupted me
with a technical basic question then he asked me y i have choosen handball
while ppl normally play ckt…then he asked me y i hav so weird hobbies of
reading psychology, analysing ppls behaviour , interpreting dreams and being a
Submit your resume to [email protected]
Page 66 of 377

we had a very long discussion on this topic , for around 8 mins the main point
here to tell is that have a resume that says something of u… also u should know
every single detail of ur hobbies because they normally concentrate on hobbies
show good comm skills, be calm and think before u answer, dont rush for an
after our discussion, ( he knew a lot more than me about psychology and dreams
so we had a long chat on it) then he asked me to solve a puzzle, make 100 with
6 9’s ie 999999
even if u know the answer, it is advisable to wait few seconds before u answer… i
solved it this way 999/9.99
he was impressed by the simplicity of answer
then he said , ok it was nice talking to u, i would definately like to talk to u again ,
then i stood up and shook hands with him … then he asked me while holding my
hand, who is the CM of bihar, i answered then he asked, and of rajasthan , i
honestly did not know so i said sorry sir, he said its a lady , i again thought for a
sec and said sorry again, he said she will love to be analysed by u, i cud not
answer because i didnot know she was vasundra raje, i never heard of her , to be
honest. then he said, ok thank u, and with thank u , i left the room
and i cud guess that i was selected.
when the result came out at aroun 12.40am , those moments were the most
memorable ones
18 out of 24 of our college got placed
hope this writing will help more of u to get selected and when u do, dont forget to
come up and meet me in mysore.. because i love making friends and helping ppl

i read a lot of papers of infy b4 my paper and they helped me a lot, hope this one
helps a lot of ppl

1-5, a puzzle based prob. (rs agarwal type, but more ticky rather than difficult)
6-10, figure probs (too easy, practice some frm rs)
11-16, data sufficiency prob. (rs agarwal sufficient, very easy)
17-20, data interpretation based on bar graph (simple but involves lengthy n
precise calculation, better to attempt at last)
21-24, another puzzle (rs type, but try to be attentive for d clues given. It can b a
bit tricky n lengthy)
25-30, syllogism ques (too easy, follow d venn diagram method)
Time management is very important, many of friends were not able to solve ol d
ques. then d ques paper was taken, generally all of u will be able to crack this
paper particularly
Within time given……..u just need to be a bit quick.
2. English

level is really very high n it’s a real time game coz u need to do 40 ques in 30-35

after d test results were announced in 2 hours, i was very glad to note tat i was

INFOSYS PAPER ON 6th FEBRUARY 2008

Test Location : Roorkee
hi friends…this is Sriram Mohan Nedunuri I attended pool campus of Infosys on
5th Feb. 2008 at COER, Roorkee and got selected finally. There were students
from 6 colleges n were about 1200. First there was presentation on Infosys and

For logical reasoning go through rs aggarwal, the imp chapters well, that’s
enough but do them thoroughly.
The logical section consisted of the following ques….
1.2 puzzle tests of 10 marks….. .(just go thru RS AGARWAL its more than
enough…..).
2.5 series figure ques of 5 marks .its like odd figure out – very easy( go thru RS
AGARWAL…NON VERBAL SECTION more than enough).
3.5 ques on data sufficiency .questions in this section were so easy try to do data
sufficiency first u can complete in 3-4 mins . some are given below.
1.PQR is an isosceles triangle. What’s the length of PQ?
a. The length of QR is 7.

Submit your resume to [email protected]

3. Are two triangles congruent?

4. In what time the cylinder completes one rotation?
a. Radius of cylinder is given.
b. Speed (angular) is given.
Ans: both are sufficient for conclusion
4.5 ques on logical reasoning or syllogism… (Go thru rs agarwal also go thru the
LR part of the cat material)
5. Data interpretation of 5 ques (Just go thru the rs agarwal aptitude book……it is
best as i preffered the same)
From 1997-2002,data was given on students studied in different streams like
arts ,commerce ,engineering, medical, agriculture and science. Questions were
like….
1.Number of students studying medicine is what %ge of no of students studying
engineering?
2.% of Students studying commerce in yr 1999 is what % of students studying in
all the yrs?(ans E(no one was correct)) …………… Like that…. questions in this
section were easy but time consuming better try to approximate and save time..
English section……. it is as follows
1. 2 paragraphs based question very easy ( try to do it in last minutes as it is very
easy u have to just go thru it once it is of total 10 marks ). There were two
paragraphs one was big one and second was relatively shorter. I did the shorter
one and it was on green house effect- easy one u can even answer the questions
even without reading paragraph.
2. 5 ques were given – in that each ques carries four options n u have to find the
correct sentence – 5 marks
3. Theme detection 5 ques
4. Fit the correct word in the blanks. This is of 5 marks,,,,
5. 5 ques were given – in that each ques carries four options n u have to find the
correct sentence – 5 marks
for verbal I will say that go for wren n martin (or Raymond Murphy) n cover
articles , tenses, prepositions, subject n verb relations…trust me friends these
books will help u a lot in clearing this round.
For over all logical n English prepare sincerely and friends C2D (cooperate to
dominate) policy will be really helpful, even though u have done sincere efforts
better do along with ur frnds. Written results were announced in the evening
around 7 and I was one of the short listed candidates among 34 form our college.

INFOSYS PAPER ON 4th FEBRUARY
Hello friends.I am ARITRA SANYAL currently doing my 3rd year of engineering
from COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING AND MANAGEMENT,KOLAGHAT. Infosys
has been my dream company but as heard from all and going thru the test
papers of infy i was really nervous wether i will be able to make it or not.Our
interview was an off campus interview.We reached at the place before a day and
stayed in a hotel and the very next day went for the interview.The infosys
aptitude consisted of 2 parts:Quantitative part and the other was verbal ability.
Quantitative part :It was quite easy .It consisted of 2 puzzles(of whch one was
very easybut the other one was a complicated),data interpretation( very
easy),next figure in the series(there were 5 or 6 questions on this and all were
simple),syllogism,problem on clock and a few analytical reasoning ones.I think
solving R.S.Aggarwal would do.
Verbal ability: This was tough.2 long passages followed by
questions.Identification of correct sentences,idioms,verbs,prepositions were
there.Deduction of conclusion etc were also there.
Well i was able to clear my written test and went for the interview.It was really
cool andsted for hardly 15 mins.

INFOSYS PAPER ON FEBRUARY 3RD 2008
Vivek Shrivastava, Fifth Semester, Ujjain Engg College, Ujjain.
The selection procedure for Infosys consist of just two parts: Written exam and
HR round. The eligibility criteria was 60%+ in 10th and 12th, and 65%+ in B.E.
The exam was conducted in M.I.T. Ujjain. 90+ students appeared from my
college U.E.C. Ujjain.
Written Exam (sectional cutoff was there):
1. Aptitude(30 questions, 40 minutes):
No special preparation required for this part, I had previously solved R.S
Aggarwal’s Quantitative Analysis and i easily solved 20+ questions, to be sure
solve R.S. Aggarwal’s verbal&non verbal (i haven’t seen that book).
Q1.) 5 questions on a question dealing with five numbers, you have to put the
condition and find the five values.
Q2.) 5 quest were based on figures in which we have to find the odd one
Q3.) 5 ques. were based on data sufficiency.
Q4.) 5 ques. were on line graph. (Data Interpretation)
Q5.) 5 ques. were based on syllogism.
and five other questions.
Submit your resume to [email protected]
Page 78 of 377

Over all aptitude section was logical and easy. I think the cutoff was around 20
out of 30.
2. English(40 questions, 35 minutes):
There were two very lengthy passages which were quite easy, one was on
current issues (could be editorial of TOI etc.) 5+5 questions were asked on
passages. Most other parts were on grammar. I didn’t studied anything for it. You
can refer to any standard book on grammar. While solving make it appoint that
you check all the options properly because their is just minute difference between
them. This section is the decisive factor coz the first section is easily cleared by
almost everyone. I think the cutoff was nearly 24+ out of 40.
1) Two RC
2) Replace an underlined sentence with another one which is of the same
meaning
from the given 4 alternatives.
3) Fill in the blank with correct alternative.
4) Questions to choose the option which supports/opposes the given passages.
5) Select the correct statement from the set of 4 statements.
After about 2 hours the result of written exam was declared and only 18 of us
cleared it. Next the interview began. The one who took my interview was an aged
person. Just be confident, positive and prepare well every thing related to your
resume and hobby. Two puzzles were asked from me:
1. A bulb is hanging by a rope from the ceiling and it is just touching your head,
you need to calculate the height of the room, clock can be used.
sol. Use the formula for time period of pendulum and u will get the length of rope
and after adding your height the height of the room can be calculated.
2. A equation in roman numbers was given one movement was allowed so as to
balance the equation (I wasn’t able to solve it)
After 1 hr+ the result was declared and 12 of us were finally selected. Clear the
written exam and you are through 95% . Just keep smiling and be confident and
u will definitely be selected.
All the Best……..

there were two sections:-
I.Critical reasoning
II.Verbal ability
Submit your resume to [email protected]
Page 82 of 377

for critical reasoning u need 2 be focussed, concentated and apply ur full mind
and nothing else u need 2 have(ofcourse gud luck is must!!).
for verbal ability the questions involve tenses, word meanings, prepositions and
some basic english gammer rules.
there were 2 reading compehensions 5 ques each and these d most scoring
among verbal. first read d ques n then find d answer frm d passage.Take care of
one thing FORGET everything which u know abt the passage aleady. just answer
the questions from what is given in the pasage.
Time management is ofcourse important to answer all the questions in time.
IMPORTANT:
NO NEGATIVE MARKING
u will be given rough sheet. Solve ur answers on rough sheet as neat as u can.
this rough sheet is evaluated at the time of interview
Before the written exam u will be given a form. U r required 2 write ur % and
some other personal details and also paste a photo.
If u take ur photo in formals(tie,coat), that will be best.
Fill ur % CAREFULLY.
Well that’s all about written exam. After sometime d results were announced and
our college students those cleared written were asked 2 report next day with 2
copies of RESUME, Originals and photocopies of our certificates.
INTERVIEW:
In the interview of Infosys, usually no technical questions are asked unless u
mention something big in ur resume e.g. my friend mentioned about robotics so
she was asked questions abt robot etc.
Prepare puzzles from internet and from shakuntala devi as puzzles are the main
issue in interview and also some questions of G.K. e.g. president of india, her
husband, capital of u.p., J&K etc.
Basically they r not interested ur answer of puzzles, they r checking ur approach
So solve them nicely on the paper as u can or explain them verbally how r u
solving ur problem.
usually very old people r HRs of Infosys. They want us 2 be very POLITE and
confident.
So be POLITE and DON’T SHOW UR ATTITUDE. DON’T ARGUE with them.
Prepare some common things e.g. which newspaper u read, name of its editor,
which sections of paper u read, hw u gather information, wht u surf on internet,
do u hv any girlfriend etc
My HR was a very old person. My experience is as follows:

Well that’s all I was not asked any puzzle or something related 2 studies.

INFOSYS PAPER ON 20th JANUARY 2008
Paper Type : Candidate Experiences
Test Date : 20 January 2008
Test Location : DELHI OFF CAMPUS…Candidate Exp
Hi Guys!!!!
I appeared in the Off Campus conducted by Infosys on 20 – 21st JAN 2008 in
DELHI. This was my second attaemp at Infy…. earlier when i appeared for infy, i
failed to clear the wriiten test and this time I was one of those MOST
UNLUCKIEST GUYSS who got rejected after Interview. Ya its true guys, infy
hardly rejects yo after interview and this too came as a shock to me. I checked
my mailbox just today (23rd FEB 2008) and it was heart breaking. normally
Interview is very smooth and they dont ask any Tech questions aswell. All you
need to have confident, and if you people are thinking that i have something
wrong with my confidence level or comm skills, then i must tell you that you r
wrong!!!!
I am still wondering what went wrong and why me.. but anyways. no one can do
anything about it no….Now Coming back to the Process. The
Witten test was divided in 2 sections: Aptitude and Verbal.
Regarding Aptitude Paper the time allocated was 40 mins. Actually guys i am a
bit confused now that was it 30 r 40, but i would say i completed all the questions
in the allocated time.

That defentily gonna help you, but i would advise you 2 thngs.Dont waste much of
a time on any question as few questions are very very easy (like picture
questons).The tough question gonna be the one where you will have to make a
table and few options would be provided to you. Like there is a gropus of 7
people. Ram sits close to shyam, Sita dont like shayam allall those stuff. So
always keep this in mind that this is the question which will take some taking to
Submit your resume to [email protected]
Page 87 of 377

complete it.the pics question are piece of cake and all the 5 questions can be
done in 2 minutes (may be in less time then that).
There is a tricky question as well and you need to practise it also. the question is
like…. All Benches are chairs, but some chairs are Carpets….. these type of
questions.
If you would have prepared for CAT or any MBA exam then you defently would
have come across such questions. So just go thorugh these question and the
Tabular question.Always remeber that never get panic while solving the paer and
dont spend much time on any question except for the tabular 1. your gutt feeling
will defently make you aware that which question you can crack and which one
you cant. there will be 30 questions so try to complete 22-23 on your own and
that too with full confidence and later on if you are not confident of for remaining
5-7 questions then just tick on any answer as THERE IS NO NEGETIVE
MARKING.But again what i can tell you is that youatleast need to do overall 20-
23 questions correct for clearing this section. So those 23 questions should be
done with full confidence and yes i know that you might do 1 or 2 might go wrong
which you might be thinking that you have attempted correctly but then there is
always a chance that the 5-6 questions on whcih you will be taking chances, 1 or
2 might come out to be correct from them.Over all i would say they have 23
average questions which can be very easily cracked with a bit of preparation (just
attempt those question, just have a feel and idea).
NOW ABOUT VERBAL SECTION:
See f you have prepared for MBA exams and have a super reading speed then
only go for pasages or else I WOULD ADVISE ALL OF YOU THAT NOT TO
ATTEMP PASSAGES 1st. the passages are big and each passage will fetch you
just 5 marks, so the better option will be to finish the rest of the papaer (rest 30
question). Many of them are simple grammer questions. and if you get the
chance to go through any passage then also I WOULD ALERT YOU THAT 1st
do READ 1 or 2 questions in advance and while reading the passage try to
findout that answer.again if left out with a passage (whcih means 5 marks) then
dont just leave the papaer, atleast mark something. Even i could complete this
VERBAL passage, i was in mid of reading the second passage when the
examiner alerted me that its last minute, so i just marked the last 3 questions

still what i saw theri and what normally people say is that itsall about
confidence)Ya one thing i must add here is that never try to show attitude to
HR…… I guess that this is where i might have gone wrong. I wast actully
showing any attitude but was sounding to confident that i guess HR might have
taken it in a negetive way…. (although i cany say anything)…. I just know that infy
is a very good company and their selection process is very fare and good. they
give proper chance to every candiate to prove his/her worth….
Always wear a smile on your face while giving a interview…And do go through

have the easiest selction procedure..Go on Crack the infy exam and get selcted…
I would apply again.. probably for the last time then and hope to see u all then in
INFY…..Best of luck and do Pray for my 3rd attempt guyssss!!!!!

easy one. Ref R.S.Aggarwal Quant)
Q21-25) A critical Reasoning Problem like Ann, Boobie, Cathy and Dave are at
their monthly business meeting. Their occupations are author, biologist, chemist
and doctor, but not necessarily in that order. Dave just told the biologist that
Cathy was on her way with doughnuts. Ann is sitting across from the doctor and
next to the chemist. The doctor was thinking that Boobie was a goofy name for
parent’s to choose,but didn’t say anything. What is each person’s occupation?
Ans: Since Dave spoke to the biologist and Ann sat next to the chemist and
across the doctor, Cathy must be the author and Ann the biologist. The doctor
didn’t speak, but David did, so Bobbie is the doctor and Dave the chemist.

INFOSYS PAPER ON 5th JANUARY 2008
: 5 January 2008
Test Date
Test Location : COER, Roorkee
Hi, friends this is Amit Kumar Singh a student of (ECE) F.E.T, G.K.V., Haridwar
and now also an Infosyian. I got selected for Infosys through the Pool placement
done by it, at COER, Roorkee on 5th and 6th of January. Here I am mentioning
about my experience during the whole placement process.
On the first day, first of all they gave the presentation which was really very great
and very well presented. After that the aptitude test was held which started
something around 12:40pm and was of 1hr 15min duration consisting of two
undermentioned parts.
1. Logical and critical reasoning test 30 questions 40 min
2. Verbal reasoning and English test 40 questions 35 min
Logical and critical reasoning test
1-5Q ——- The question was based on direction in which a person was moving
in different directions and we had to answer few quetions related to that.
2-10Q —– The questions were figure related in which we had to find the correct
figure in sequence.
11-15Q —
16-20Q — The question was related to DI in which a table showing number of
students in different branches during 6 years were given and we had to answer
questions having lot of caculations. So I suggest you to do it at last.
Submit your resume to [email protected]
Page 102 of 377

21-25Q — The question was puzzle type in which 5 peoples A,B,C,D,E lived in 5
consicutive flats and each having vechicles which they parked in garage below
their flats. Few conditions were given like no one parks his vehicle just below it
and so. We had to answer questions related to it like who parks below E and so
on.
26-30Q — The question was syllogism type. In this 6 statements were given with
four combination choices like AFC, ACF etc and we had to find the correct
logically related combination.
(I recommend you to just go through R.S. Aggarwal Verbal & Non Verbal
Reasoning. But prepare well for it. As its one of the deciding factors in clearing
Aptitude test.)
Verbal reasoning and English test
1 —- There were two paragraphs. It will take time so attempt them at last.
2 —- There were questions on sentence correction in which we had to find
correct replacement for underlined part in passage.
3 —- There were questions on finding the correct sentence among 4 given
sentences.
4 —- There were questions on filling up the blanks with suitable grammatical
words.
5 —- There were questions related to theme dectecion from a small passage.
(The questions are generally easy and related to basic grammar, just once go
through prepositions, tenses, verbs, adjective and subject-verb relationship from
any grammar book, Wren & Martin preffered. Also go through few theme
detection and passage comprehension type questions given in Barron’s GRE or
any other MBA preparation material. But its all easy not much preparation is
required.)
The results of Aptitude was declared at around 5:30pm in which 340 students
were selected from around 1200 students of different colleges. From our college
34 were selected among 120 students. I was one among the selected students
for HR. We were told to come on following day for our HR interview at 8:00am.)
HR Interview
We were initially made to sit in a room from where we were directly taken before
HR for interview around 11:30am. Inspite of preparing a lot I was feeling a lack of
preparation before entering for interview but in the end everything went well for
me. Here I am describing my enconter with HR.
HR – Amit Kumar Singh.
I – May I come in sir.
HR – Yes come in.

HR – Okay! do you have any question to ask?
I – I have heard that you provides the best training in India, Is there any
prerequisite knowledge you expect your emplooyes to have before training?
HR – (Explained) Any more questions to ask?
I – No sir.
HR – Thank you! Now you can leave.
I – Thank you! sir.
(He again stood to shake hand with me. Then I left the room.)
After interview we were made to sit in a room for around 1hr 30min where the
tension was creeping inside everyone’s mind. Finally we got our results
announced by chief HR at around 1:30pm and my name was announced too
along with 17 other students of my college.
My friends, I want to suggest you all that the major factors deciding your
selection are your confidence and your communication skills. And clearing
aptitude makes 60% of your selection which is increased considearbly by having
good communication skills.
So, friends just try to clear your aptitude test by any means (especially friends
cooperation), but remember hard work is must and try to improve your
communication skills. I am very much sure that you will make it upto Infosys and
even if you don’t make it upto Infosys, remember one thing that its only India’s
number one not the world’s number one.
Bye!!!!!!!!

INFOSYS PAPER ON 31st MAY
Hai friends this is Ramakanth frm Nalanda Institute of Engineering &
Technology,Sattenapalli. Recently Infosys visited Vignan College for Off-Campus
selections. Totally 739 members attended selections ,128 cleared the written test
& totally 55 got placed in the Company. Luckily iam also one of the 55 members
who got placed. So i want to share my experiences with u,first of all for providing information about Infosys.
The total procedure for Infosys selection is of two stages,They r
1)Written test
2)Tech cum HR
Written test consists of 2 papers,they are
i)Reasoning
ii)Verbal
Reasoning paper consists of 30 quos should be solved in 40 mins
first 5 quos are based on Cubes.The problem is: If a cube of dimensions on
3*4*5 coloured with three different colors namely Red,Green,Black are painted
on opposite corners of the cube.this cube is cut down into 78 smaller cubes.Of
these 78 , 73 are smaller in dimension & remaining 5 are bigger than remaining
but of equal dimension.
Submit your resume to [email protected]
Page 108 of 377

From these given information 5 quos were asked.They are of this type
i)How many cubes are there painted with red colr?
ii)How many cubes are there of painted on three sides?
iii)How many cubes are there of painted on two sides?
iv)How many cubes are there of painted on only one side?
v)How many cubes are of unpainted? I cant remeber the dimension right ,but the
quos r like these.
Next 5 quos are on Non-verbal reasoning i.e.,odd man out series.This is very
easy section to answer in very less time.Out of 5 quos 4 are straight out frm
R.S.Agarwal Reasoning text book.So read that book thoroughly especially 3rd
chapter namely Classifications in Non-Verbal part to answer these quos.
Next 5 quos are on Data sufficiency,these r also easy ones.repeated frm
previous papers
Next 5 quos are on Data Interpretation,these r tougher than earlier ones.He gave
the graphical representation of the incomes of 8 management institutes of three
years.All 5 quos r on Percentages,so be well prepare percentages & try to learn
speed maths(fast solving) to answer this section.I failed to solve these quos
so i randomly picked the answers bcoz there is no -ve marking.
Next 5 quos are on Puzzle test,He gave information about Six friends about their
heights,weights,gender.First of all u have to analyse the info. & arrange them in
increasing&decreasing order.if u done it u can answer the quos very easily.
Next 5 quos are on Syllogism.Out of these 5 quos 1 quo is straight out frm
R.S.Agarwal book.Others also of same type,if u use Venn diagrams its time
consuming so use venn diagrams in effective manner.
This is all about Reasoning paper.
Verbal paper consists of 40 quos to be answered in 30 min.This is little bit
tougher than reasoning paper if u poor in English otherwise its also easy paper, It
consists of two big passages.the quos on these passages are very easy.If u read
the passage faster then u can answer the quos very easily.Reading newspaper
daily helps to solve this section.
Next 5 quos are on fill in the blanks with word that can fit grammatically &
logically.Thse r also easy & little bit confusing,logical thinking is necessary to
Next 5 quos are on replacing the underlined phrase with suitable option.this is
also very confusing.
Next 5 quos are finding the conclusions for five small passages.This is also
confusing
Next 5 quos r finding the grammatically correct sentence frm the options given
Submit your resume to [email protected]
Page 109 of 377

below.This is also confusing but easy if u r good in grammer. Especially they are
asking on Perfect tense.so learn it carefully.
Sorry frnds i cant remember the whole paper,i suggest u to read news paper
daily & read the Run&martin book for grammer. This is all about my written test.
The results were announced at 3:30 pm afternoon,my HR waqs conducted at
9:30 pm night.I waited patiently for 6 hours with some tension. Luckily there are
no technical quos only hr.
I entered the cabin & wished my HR,she is a lady ,she also wished me & asked
to take the seat. Next she asked my resume & i handled it to her.She asked
about my family details. Next she asked “What kind person u are?”. Next she
asked the justification of all my personal skills mentioned in my Cv.I explained
her with suitable examples. Next she asked some crucial quos like “If u cant
adjust within the team u r working what do u do at that time?” I answered very
carefully & very convincingly. Next she asked about my extra activities other than
curricullum.Next she asked about my hobbies. Finally with a clean smile in her
face she asked me to leave, I also left the cabin with small smile.
My suggestion to face the HR is Be confident & be truthful. Hope my experience
will help u & all the best my dear frnds byeee to all.

INFOSYS PAPER ON 28th OCTOBER AT TRICHY
Hi to everyone.My name is Felix ,from trichy. I attended infosys offcampus interview on
october 28th in ANNA UNIVERSITY CAMPUS,Trichy.1224 students attendedt he test.
The first round had 2 sections:
Logical Reasoning section:
Here u need to answer 30 questions in 40 mins.
The CUT-OFF was 15 out of 30.
First have a point in mind.There is NO NEGATIVE MARKING.So attend all the
questions.
Dont strike any option in answer sheet and overwrite again.Because it wont be treated as
an answer.It will be omitted.
This section was very easy.But needs practice.Refer Non-verbal and verbal reasoning by
R.S.Agarwal book.Similar models with clear explanation is given in that book.
Okay now let me recollect some questions which i got in the test.
Que 1to 5:we can complete the 1st 5 questions in 3mins. very very simple. it was like
finding the direction.
eg.1.A boy walks 40 km north and then walks 50km towards east.then turns right and
walks 30km and then turns right and walks 50km.Now what is the distance between this
point and the starting place?
Ans:10km
2.A boy walks some distance towards north and then turns right,walks some
distance.After walking some time he turns left and walks some distance and then walks
some dist and then he walks at an angle of 45degree towards right and then turns to his
left and walks.Towards Which direction was he walking finally?
Ans:North-west
3.A man walks 10km towards west.Then which of the combinations will take him to the
original starting position?
Options:a)left,left,right b)left,right,right c)right,left,right d)right,right,right
Ans:d)right,right,right
Other 2 questions i dont remember.But was very simple like this only.
Ques 6 to 10:Here 5 pictures are given and are logically related.3rd picture was
missing.It was pretty tough than i expected.I went without preparation for these type of
Submit your resume to [email protected]
Page 113 of 377

questions.Better u practice some questions like this.Then u will get idea.All these
practise is just for saving time only because u will attend all questions if 1hour time is
given.But here u need to attend 30questions in 40 mins.Sopractice sincerely atleast
1week before the test.
11 to 15:Data sufficiency
Refer data sufficiency chapter in R.S.Agarwal(Verbal and non-verbal).Thats more than
enough.
The pattern was like
a)if a alone is sufficient to answer the question
b)if b alone is sufficient
c)if either a or b alone is sufficient to answer it
d)neither a nor b is sufficient to answer the question
e)we need both a as well as b to answer the question
Okay,be careful in choosing the option.Read the options twice or thrice and think
logically while having an eye over the time.
11.Is (x)power4 -2(x)power3-34 > (y)power2?
given a)x is real
B)y is less than 0
i dont remember the Other 4 questions.But easy only.You can easily answer 3 to 4
questions correct.
16 to 20: Data Interpretation
Bar chart or Pie chart will be given.
The problem given to me was a bar chart representing the sales of paint company in 5
years.
And 5 questions were asked like what is the increase in percentage in 1996 to 1995.
Like these only.Simple.
Better try some problems in data interpretation chapter.
21 to 25:Puzzle test
Refer Puzzle test in R.S.Agarwal and work out all problems within a day.U will surely
answer all the 5 questions correctly.
The question i had was: There are 8 teachers a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h each teach different subjects.3
teachers are female and remaining are gents.4 of the teachers hold a Ph.d degree.G is a
lady without a ph.d.F is a lady with a ph.d.A teaches chemistry.C is a lady teaching
biology.D or E dont teach either physics or commerce.the one who teaches law is not a
ph.d holder.The one who teaches literature is nOT A LADY.
21)Who teach physics?
22)who is not a lady?
23)which of the statements is false?
Submit your resume to [email protected]
Page 114 of 377

24)who teach zoology?
a)c ,b)H , c)C or H, d)cannot be determined
25)which of the statement is true?
All u need is to construct a chart with the details given.thats it u can answer 3 or 4
easily.1 or 2 questions u need to think and answer.Simple.
26 to 30: Syllogisms
Study all 9 rules in R.S.Agarwal and try to solve all the problems and read the
explanation for each problem given in the book.Thats it , if u r thorough with the rules,its
very easy to finish 5 questions in 5 mins.
Which of the following combinations are logically correct and related to each other?
Hint: First goto the 4 options given.Analyse the combination whether it is logically
related?Thats it.simple
26)a)All crows are black
b)All birds are crows
c)All birds are black
d)All birds are feathers
e)All black are claws
f)All black are parrot
a)abc b)ade c)fcb d)cda
Ans:a)abc
Remember conclusion of two statements is different from logically related statements.So
27)a)Shyam plays chess
b)There is no need to be intelligent to win a chess game
c)Shyam lost in chess
d)Shyam is not intelligent
e)Shyam is educated
f)Shyam is intelligent
Remaining problems were also simple like these only.So if you plan ur time and attend
all questions u can easily score 20 to 25.The cut-ff for selection would be 15 to 18.So if u
give correct answers for 18 or more, u r definitely in which is easily possible with some
practise.
Next is the English section
Verbal Section:
Here 40 questions to be solved in 35 minutes.Cut-off will be 20 to 22.So try to attend all
40 questions.It doesnt need any practise if ur english is above average i.e. if u r good in
the grammatical area.
2 Reading comprehensions:(5+5=10 qs)
Submit your resume to [email protected]
Page 115 of 377

Both passage has 5 qs and both were easy only.Dont read each and every line.Just scan
the lines in 2 minutes.Goto the questions and come back to the passage immediately and
read the concerned lines quickly.U can finish both the passages in 12 to 13 minutes
which is quite good.But dont spend more than 15 minutes here.Otherwise u wont have
time to complete fully.
Checking Grammar:(8qs)
8 questions with 4 options each were asked.Need to find out which option is correct
grammatically and makes sense.Thats it.Dont spend more than 8 mins here.
eg.a)Today farming is very much precarious enterprise among all.
b)Farming today is the most precarious enterprise of all.
c)Farming today is the most precarious enterprise in all.
d)farming enterprise today is one of the most precarious enterprise.
All 8 questions were like these only.If u r quick in grasping,u will finish these 8 qs in 5
mins.
Fill ups:(8qs) 8 questions.
A big sentence was given.And some where in between there will be a blank.U need to
choose the option which suits the blank exactly.There were 8 qs here and i found it little
hard.So i took around 10 mins.I dont remember any question exactly.They may be a part
of a passage related to history,science or anything.Just testing our english.
Small passage:(5 qs)
A small passage like a story was given in 5 lines and 5 questions were asked.Just read the
passage fast and goto the questions.4options were given and u need to analyse which
option will suit the question.Thats it.U can finish these 5 qs in 3-4 mins itself.
Which is true? (9 questions)
They gave some 3 lines of content in every question and it had 4 options asusual.U need
to find out which of the 4 options will be true according to the content given. This was
also easy only.
Now after reading my experience,u would have got some idea.I also went to the test after
reading these kind of experiences given by some unknown person.Thanks to all of them.
thats it.All u need is to have some practise in the related areas and have confidence.Its
easy to clear the 1st round.
Then we waited 2 hrs for the result.
144 students were shortlisted for the next round.53rd name was mine.
HR interview:
Once u r shortlisted for the next round means,sit alone and just relax.Calm down and
cool yourself.If u think u need some preparations,dont take any book and read.just
answer urself within mind some of the usually asked qs like
2.why your % went down in B.E compared to 10th and 12th std?
Submit your resume to [email protected]
Page 116 of 377

3.why r u interested to enter IT field?
4.Just make your resume simple.pls dont make it heavy by mentioning unwanted extra
details.Questions will be asked only based on the data which u have given in ur resume.
5.Prepare information about ur project.
6.Hobbies
7.If u had any arrears during ur degree,there is a definite question about the arrear
subject.Just he will ask what is the subject related to?what does it mean?Nothing
else.Just be mentally prepared.
Another thing is fill up the infosys form carefully without any mistake before the 1st
round.Because in the HR interview the questions will be partially based on those details
also.
Thats it other than these things 1 puzzle may or may not be asked based on the
interviewer u have.Just answer boldly whatever u say.Dont say ‘i dont know’ for any of
the qs which he asks.Just try ur level best to answer them.Be positive.It doesnt need that
only if u solve the puzzle,ul be selected.Even if u don know the puzzle,they ll just see ur
approach towards the problem,thats it.
They said that final result of selected students will be mailed in a month.So im waiting
for these 30days..
Prepare well. Wish u all success and all the very best.
Regards,
Felix

Science and Technology, Kochi ,Kerala. InfoSys had com to our college last
Friday,27.07.07….am so happy that with the Almighty`s grace I was able to turn

As u must hav read de other experiences…Infy exam is very simple. All u require
is som gud concentratn,time management and ofcourse good preparation.. For

Then as per their advices I went for Verbal n Nonverbal by R.S Agarwal….Also

Submit your resume to [email protected]
Page 120 of 377

heavily…O.k,lets start…
Written test contains 2 parts…
1.logical
2.English
The logical part consists of 6 type of Questions each having 5 q`s…The types
are
1.Data interpretation
2.Data Sufficiency
3.Syllogisms
4.Pictorial Q`s
The other two might b anything from Puzzles,Blood relation Q`s, Cubes n Dices.
As for Data interpretatn,it takes gud amt of time,so it wud be best done at last.
Topics like Data Sufficiency n Syllogisms I covered from I.M.S notes…Syllogisms
do not come as they r seen in agarwal…they give a pack of 6 sentences from
which u hav to select the appropriate 2 statements n a conclusion. answer
contains 4 options lik abd,cef,eba..etc etc…its very very simple. all u hav to do is
go from the answers using trial and error method…. data suff. Q`s com from any
part of aptitude. so u hav to b fast in applying your brains to c if the statements r
suff or not. its not necessary 2 find the answer…tak care of time…
Pictorial Q`s may b to find the odd one or to find the missing figure. Both are very
well given in agarwal(verbal n nonverbal).
For us the first ques was tat card game called Flash..its simple but takes time.i
had already done one of them from my I.M.S material(Logical Reasoning).Luckily
for me,the same q came.he he he..the answers were (1)74 (2) 26 (3) 18 (4)16
(5){9,9,10}…………..
The final type was related to relations…as in…5 friends stayin in different
societies and each of them having a different bank account…and the q`s wer lik
who has a acc wher,who lives in society X…..etc etc..it simple….
All u hav to do is tak care of ur time…40 mins for 30 q`s…b in touch wth ur
watch…
Now for the English part which is 35 mins for 40 q`s…pls dnt go for the
passages..keep them for the end…the other q`s are correcting sentence,fill
in ,concluding a para etc etc..if u r week in English try out the
verbal(agarwal)..I.M.S notes also help..otherwis it shouldn’t b a problem..its
simple..but time consuming..so again..tak good good care of ur time….Try
answering all..dont think thers negative marking…so mak it a blast…
Then the H.R…I was de first one to attend…it was simple…jus casual
talk…actually my H.R was so cool tat I forgot it was an intervw..very relaxed..jus

had a natural conversantn….
And all praise to the Almighty I was one among the 25 selected…47 from 329
had passed the written….really njoyd cz I had not even told my parents abt the
exam tat day..so it was a total surprise dhamaka…..yeaaaaahhh!!!!!
nothin technical was askd…prepare for the exam well…not by reading the whole
of agarwaal,but by going thru the required topics…
Wishing each one of u reading this All the Very Best. God Bless u!!!!!!

INFOSYS PAPER ON 23rd APRIL 2007
Hi,this is Sunpreet Singh Anand..First of all i would confess that
has helped me quite a lot in making it through Infosys. So as per my duty i will try
to help you all as much as possible.
THE WRITTEN TEST PAPER——–
APTITUTE-(30 mins)
1) THE FIRST TYPE QUESTION(1-5) was a puzzle..it was something like there
were 4 guests n the two host sitting on the dining table.the two hosts sit
opposite..no two males sit together(it wa something like tht i dont exactly
remember)..It was quite tricky and i would suggest u to attempt those at the last…
2)THE SECOND TYPE OF QUESTION(6-10) was based on figure…most of
them were adjusted clockwise or anticlockwise..give a try..i hope it works for u
too..
3)THE THIRD TYPE OF QUESTION(11-15) was the general puzzle question
from RS Agarwal a bit time consumingbut u can do it…
4)THE FOURTH TYPE OF QUESTION(16-20)was data intepretion..this was a
simple question like the other br graph questions given in RS AGARWAL..But
was time consuming..So hurry through…Dont waste time looking around..And
always keep calm n cool..
5)THE FIFTH TYPE OF QUESTION(21-25) were the data sufficiency
questions(all of them were numerical)..For solving these questions u need to hv a
knowledge of the data required to solve a question…For example if u have to find
the volume of a cylinder u should know its height and radius..
6)THE SIXTH TYPE OF QUESTION(26-30) was based on syllogism..well
practice them from RS AGARWAL and i will suggest u to try them with the help of
venn diagram and u will do it in a flash..
ENGLISH-(40min) It had 40 questions-
1)TIPS:….just practise from any of your school days books and thats more than
Submit your resume to [email protected]
Page 129 of 377

sufficient.and do pay enphasis on GRAMMAR.
TYPE 1) 2 Passages: the lengthiest of the questions…as every prior infoscian i
too would suggest to attemp them at the last
TYPE 2) 2-3 lines given with a part underlined(containing silly grammatical
mistake) .Take it as a late birthday gift..It cant get easier than that.
TYPE 3) a word was given and the closest meaning was to be
selected.TIPS: :read carefully and analyse which is most suited.Its actually
general words but or a bit tougher..But u can do it if u analyse carefully.
type 4) 7-8 lines complex paragraph and 4 options to each were given,we were
supposed to relate each sentence with the paragraph and
choose the one which can be directly concluded from the passage.These were
quite easy.I suggest you try these with a calm mind..
THE RESULTS FOR THE WRITTEN WERE SCHEDULED AT 3.30 BUT WERE
DECLARED AFTER AN HOUR DELAY,59 WERE SHORTLISTED(however
everyone was expecting the figure to be a lot more than this) IMMEDIATELY
AFTER THE RESULTS THE STREAM OF INTERVIEW STARTED.
MY INTERVIEW—-
A general Infosys interview lasts for around(15-20 min)..But my interview lasted
for about half an hour.
TIPS:Be through your resume completely..You should know every bit and pieces
of it and be prepared to be questioned on anything from your resume..
Also be aware of some general topics like the chief ministers of some states,the
presidents of countries,editor of the newspaper you read,and the current events
happening around.
Be very well prepared with your interview ad its presentation..The first impression
does make a big difference..Try to be as confident and show yourself as cool as
possible..Keep a smile on your face always.. Communication skill is very
important and is the most important requisite for your selection.So get down to
work on your communication skill..Try to add a bit of humor during the interview if
possibe(but make sure its sensible and not a double meaning anyways).
They will give you possible DONT PANIC if u cant get through it ,but keep trying
until he asks you to stop…
BEST OF LUCK.HOPE TO SEE ALOT OF PEOPLE IN INFOSYS.

I AM SWATHI FROM GNITS , GOT PLACED INTO INFY , N I HOPE THIS PAGE
HELPS U ALL
TEST PATTERN:
1. APTITUDE and VERBAL
2. HR
NOTE :(we were given an application form of infy we were asked to write it before the
APTITUDE:
All questions were of REASONING type —–30 questions(R.S Aggarwal reasoning
book is more than enough)
here time management is very important
One question was time consuming for me and
that was from the puzzle test so be prepared wid all 7 models of PUZZLE TEST
we had DATA INTETERPRETATION and as i couldnt solve the 1st question properly i
had to solve this
so dont waste time for the questions u cannot solve instead do the one which is easier n
refer(r s aggarwal quantitative aptitude for this)
mostly bar charts,tables and pi charts are given(we were given a table)
5 questions were from FIGURES
we were given 3 figures followed by a ‘?’
in this the 1st two figures are have some relationship b/w them n based on that we hav to
pick an answer figure which matches the 3rd figure
Submit your resume to [email protected]
Page 138 of 377

this was an easy one
5 questions were from SYLLOGISM
this was a bit different from wht i thought
they give 5 statements naming them a,b,c,d,e
then the answers choices were like 3 were paired eg:1)abe 2)dbe 3)aeb 4)dae
n we hav to find the pair which corretly matchs it if u do r.s aggarwal n r perfect wid all
rules of syllogism i dont thing this would b tough
5 questions were of DATA SUFFICIENCY type
i felt this was easy
the questions i remember were from mensuration,length of train,ages of people
thts it in this part, we were not told the cutoff but i think its better to try for atleast 20 out
of 30
VERBAL:
40 questions were there
i scored 24 marks
there were 2 RCs one was of 2 pages i attempted in the last 5 min but i did it well i
believe
correction of sentences
Submit your resume to [email protected]
Page 139 of 377

fill in the blank with correct word
around 5to 6 passages for which we had go choose the correct summary
u hav to read these very fast
time management is very very imp. here
do not waste even one min looking here and there coz tht one min costs a loooooooot
finally i was called my name for HR n i was on the top of the world
i actually got thru wipro also but the joy of getting into a dream company is just great
one should definately experience it
HR:
One important thing is tht dont think tht its just HR
u should always remember tht there is one more hurdle to pass
in my 1st interview i hav learnt a lot “wht to do n wht not to do in the HR round” so if u
hav not yet been placed then first analyze why tht has happened n try to improve on that
coz there r huge oppertunities in this world
some way or the other u can get thru once u improve on ur flaws
so be confident and dont be jelous abt the ones who hav already got its a very bad thing
My HR round was coool
HR: come in swathi
me: yes sir
HR: cmon take ur seat
me: thank u sir (he had asked my resume and asked me to sign on it n also at few places
on the application form)

And the next process is written test…Let me tel u about the pattern,
TEST PAPER PATTERN: We will have two sections in written test pattern. viz:

2.English
1.Apptitude n Reasoning: In this section the time alloted is 45mins for 30 questions.It
consists of,

painted on a six sided cube n ques based on the data)
* 5 ques based on Odd fig out.(A bit easy)
* 5 ques on Data Sufficiency.
* 5 ques on Data Interpretation.(Learn abt. Bar charts,Pie charts,line graphs,etc…)

help of a table n in our paper it was a bit difficult)
* 5 ques based on 9 rules of Syllogism.(plz learn the 9 rules of syllogism from
R.S.Agarwal perfectly so tht u can answer thm very easily)
The way i have answered was…first i answered data related ques i.e,abt the cube colours
n thn syllogism ques,next odd fig out n thn data sufficiency next data interpretation n at
last analytical problem….In this way I was able to answer most of the questions….
2.English: In this section the time alloted is 35mins for 40 ques. It consists of,
* 10 ques on Comprehension passages(v will have two long passages given n 5 ques each

On the whole,the paper is not tht much hard to tackle but our reading speed n
understanding power plays an important role…Let me tel how I have ansewered it in
time…first i started with filling the appropriate word,next correcting underlined phrases n
thn paragraph inferences n thn correction of sentences….n thn i was left with 10
mins…now i read the questions n the options given for comprehension n thn i searched
for the answers in the given passage….so in this way I was able to answer most of the
ques given…in this way i was able to answer my paper within time…whenever u feel a
ques is a bit difficult plz leave it n go for the next one…don’t waste even a single second…

wished the interviewer with a pleasant smile n he too n asked me to take the seat…first he
started with technical quetions based on Microprocessors n thn on Operating Systems…i
was able to answer most of thm….all the questions were based on purely basics of the
subject…next he asked me to choose a general topic n speak on it…I hav choosen Child
Labour as my topic n I was able to perform well bcoz i always participate in debate n
elocution competitions….thn he gave me a paper whr a situation was given n i shud find
the place whr actually the problem arised n thn how could i help to solve it whn i was in
tht position….i gave him two solutions but he want something else more…i was unable to
give another solution but he made me to tel tht solution by giving me the hints….and at l
last he asked me whether u hav any queries…i asked him abt wht exacctly is Global
Delivery Model(GDM) tht is followed by Infosys…n thn how is the performance
appraisal done in the company n the last ques is whether i hav any chance of doing my
MBA in future…he answered to all the ques n i said thnk u n thn he said thnk u n u can
leave……I was not fully satisfied with wht i answered but I was satisfied with my body
language bcoz i was smiling pleasantly throughtout my interview…..this is an important

The process consists of two rounds, now a days infy is conducting three rounds
which consists of one technical & hr. During my interviews some of the people
have undergone 2 rounds of interview, so be prepared, u may interviewed once
or twice, depending upon their requirement.
In this first thing is the written test, and during off campus short listing of
candidates will be very less, and the short listing will be mainly based on the
English test which is of 40 marks, & I think one should get minimum 30 marks for
getting short listed, and u al well know that interview is lite.
In case of Reasoning test, there will be one hard puzzle & one easy puzzle, easy
puzzle can be solved easily if one solves all the puzzles in the non verbal
reasoning, easy puzzle 4 me is there are 5 teachers, each teacher teaches a
subject, no teacher teaches more than two subjects and another clue stating the
teacher’s subject & day of teaching and questions are which teacher teaches the
subject, on which day does this teacher teaches and so on.
Coming to hard puzzle there are three frnz x,y,z. x has an amount of rs.160, y
has an amount of rs.120, z has an amount of rs.80. and the man who have
highest amount of money has to give the half of the difference between the two
members, and this process stops if the difference between any two of the
members is less than rs5, and questions are like wat is the final amt at x, how
many iterations will it take to stop the game and so on. In case of hard puzzles,
the infy people are just copying the examples 4m the IMS material for CAT, I
have said this as me and my frnz got the puzzles 4m it, and theres no even
change in the numerical, so try 2 go through it once
And data interpretation do it in the last, and the calculations wil be very hard so
do only rough calculations not exactly
(and u people can note the questions on rough sheet as they wil take only
question papers but not the answer papers, so if u have time left out u can solve
them)
And next 5 question based on series (but we cant say that every time they give
only series they may also give odd man out as one of my friends got them) and
Submit your resume to [email protected]
Page 145 of 377

the questions are very easy
And next 5 questions on syllogisms, and I can recollect just 2 questions,
find the area of triangle
height of the median is given
two sides are given
Find the length of the cord
If the diameter of the circle is given
And the angle made by the sector is 60deg
Coming to English, u must have strong grip on tenses as u can gain 15 marks if
ur strong in tenses as u can get 5 marks 4m fill in the blanks with appropriate
tenses, and 10 marks 4m correction of sentences,
And coming to pattern of the English, consists of two comprehension passages,
5 fill in blanks, 10 correction of sentences (in case of correction of sentences
corrections are based on tenses, direct& indirect speech, active& passive voice)
and find the logically correct sentence
And they gave the list of short listed candidates in the evening and they have
selected just 92 candidates out of 900, and they scheduled interview on the next
day at Infy’s corporate office
I got scheduled at 11:30 am, but I went to the interview panel at around 3’0 clock,
and the interview experience is as follows, my panel consists of only one hr
where as in some other panels there are two people

INFOSYS PAPER ON 14th MAY
hi everyone, my name is anubhav sinha , a student of chemical engg. at NIT surat . on
14th of may 2007 i got selected in infosys… and i would love to share the experience
with all of you.
that day we all saw the ppt by the company and the most interesting part of it was the
video of their mysore campus… it was excellent .also they showed us a record of
tremendous growth prospects in infosys and so many of us ,sat for infosys although it
was offering 2.7 lpa only initially..
so let me now come to the question paper part. their were 2 papers – paper 1 was of logic ,
reasoning and paper 2 of english .i am giving a detailed description of both these papers.
paper1 : it was of 30 marks and of duration 30 minutes ..no. of questions were 30.
Submit your resume to [email protected]
Page 151 of 377

question 1 was of a cube painted with 3 different colours on opposite faces and of side
15cm , each side cut into 5 equal parts there were questions like
how many cubes will have 3 faces painted?
how many cubes will not be painted ?
total five questions were there regarding cubes.
next 5 questions were of non verbal reasoning where you are given different figures ina
particular order and you are asked to find the missing figure . they were easy … need not
worry !
then 5 questions from data intepretion . a simple table was given and very easy 5
questions were asked …. then 5 questions were from data sufficiency .a good knowledge
of geometry was required for 2 of these questions ..rest 3 were only logical .. easy ones
then 5 ques. were from blood relations . for this ques, i will advice u to make tree
diagram bcoz there will be 7-8 names ….. tree diag . will make it easy .
and last 5 questions were syllogisms .. use venn diagram approach for this… these will be
easy too .dont worry .
so , overall logical paper will be easy and you should try to score 25 or above in it
although mine was 20 !!!( remember NO NEGATIVE MARKING )
next comes the tough part ..English paper .. 40 questions – 35 minutes -1 mark each it
will have a long comprehension ,followed by a short comprehension . ( 5 marks
each )( NEVER START FROM THESE 2) 3rd question will be “correct the phrases”
(START FROM HERE )( 10 marks) followed by 10 ” fill in the blanks ” type . this part
will be easier (ALTHOUGH NOT EASY) .
next there will be 5 questions of the type where you are given 4 statements A,B,C and D
and you have to form a meaningful paragraph .( BE CAUTIOUS HERE ) this part can
bring differences . last 5 will also be interesting . a sentence will be given and out of 4
ways given ,in which this sentence can be written ,you will have to chose the correct one
.
(OPTIONS WILL BE VERY CLOSE AND SENTENCES WILL BE LONG SO U
WILL HAVE TO READ VERY FAST .) NO NEGATIVE MARKING HERE ALSO SO
ATTEMPT ALL THE QUES. my score in this section 27/40.
so a good thing occured with me that mine was the first name to be called out in the list
of shorlisted students for interview…. !!!! out of 150 (approx. ) they took 75 for interview.
as i entered the interview room , i wished my interviewer and with his permission took
my seat.. he asked for my resume and without asking for my intro. told me with a smile ”
so,mr. anubhav , you have done very good in your paper ” . my paper was kept there only
and i saw my marks ..!!!!!! so he started with my family and asked about my parents ,
and my siblings . i had 87 % in class 10 and 70% in class 12 .. he asked me the reason . i
told the truth that i didn’t used to study economics , computer and english literature …
that is why i have ess marks .. he was satisfied … them he asked why i have 6 pointer in
1st year and 8.5 pointer consistently from 2nd year onwards … i told him that sir, i
prepapred for and qualified in IITJEE 2005 , but i refused b.arch offered to me in IIT
kharagpur bcoz i didn’t like it .. i wanted to do b.tech ….. he was happy to know this ..

next he asked me 3 puzzles ..
puzzle 1: if i have 3 daughters and each daughter has a brother , how many kids do i
have?? ( ans: 4)
puzzle 2: there is a pole 12 feet long and its shadow is 3 feet long.. if the height of the
pole increases to 20 feet , will the shadow increase or decrease ???? ( i confidently said
decrease only to realize later that it will increase )
puzzle 3: suppose i work in a process industry and i come to know that after 3 days i am
going to have a [power cut of 4 , 8, 6,6,6, hours resp. on each onsecutive day , how will i
handle this ???
this was the end of my interview and he said “‘ that was nice meeting you ” after a few
hours results were anounced and 74 were finally selected

INFOSYS PAPER ON 13th JUNE AT PUNJABI UNIVERSITY
Hi Friends, This is Maheep here from UCoE, Punjabi University, Patiala. Infosys
visited our campus on 13th june, 2007 and recruited 87 students out of 219
(shortlisted 126 in written test) who were eligible. Luckily, with Gods grace, i was
one of them.
It was a 2-day program:-
13th – Presentation and written test
14th – HR interviews
Presentation:-
Listen carefully, whatever the presenter has to offer. From company details to its
structure, company stats. to its latest achievements…….listen v. carefully. Not
only it will tell you about the company but also it will enlighten you on all the traits
that it is lookin 4 in an INFOSCION. It will give you the knowledge that you ought
to know about the company.
Written Test:-
It consisted of two parts:-
1.) Logical Aptitude (Verbal and Non-Verbal)
There were a total of 30 questions which we had to do in 40 min. First 5
questions were on CUBES. A cube was given and its faces were painted with
different colours and we had to answer all 5 of ’em based on the given
information.VERY SIMPLE….take this as a GIFT!!
Next 5 questions were on Figure Matrix..i.e. relating to figures.We had to find
from the options which figure would follow the figure series given in the
Submit your resume to [email protected]
Page 155 of 377

question….required spontaneity of mind.Some were easy while others were a bit
difficult.
Next 5 were on Data Sufficiency.Again very easy…Take these as a gift!! There
was no direct queston on blood realations as such but it came indirectly in data
sufficiency.
Then, next 5 questions were on DI(Data Interpratation). It was very difficult.No
‘R.S. Aggarwal’ would suffice to crack DI.Must practise from CAT material.
Next 5 were based on a PUZZLE(George J. Summers type).It was easy but time-
consuming.R S Aggarwal would suffice.
Last 5 questions were the easiest of the lot. It was on Deductive Logic
(Syllogism). Free marks coming your way!!
NOTE: no QUANT.
All in all the paper wasnt that tough but it required a hell lot of concentration.No
doubt, anyone would have solved it if given unlimited time.But then again its the
time contraint that makes a difference.Concentration and Spontaneity of mind are
the key words to focus upon. Jus go through the above topics from ‘Verbal and
Non-Verbal Reasoning’ by R.S. Aggarwal.
I think 2 days of hard work is more than enough to do these many topics. (I
myself spent jus 2 days on it!!!)
2.) English
I, personally, found it easy.But since i have to go with the majority, yeah people
had problems answering these questions. I think if u read newspapers and
converse in Eng. regularly i dont think it should turn out to be a hurdle. It had 40
questions which we had to do in 30 min. More or less, CAT pattern.2 RCs(total of
10 questions) and rest were all contextual based questions like ‘to find the most
appropriote from the option………’
Still if you had to prepare something revise Tenses and Prepositions from ‘Wren
and Martins’
MY personal expereince – u dont need more than 2 days to prepare for its
test.(CONSTANT and SINCERE effort each day should do the trick!!)
HR Inerviews:-
There were 6 panels, each had its own way of taking the interview.If one was
stressing on Puzzles, the other bothered with GK and Curent Affairs.One was
also goin towards technical side(just on basics..need not worry!!) while the other
was stuck with ur resume and hobbies.
Which panel in store for you was on luck!!! i got the panel that stressed upon
Submit your resume to [email protected]
Page 156 of 377

puzzles and resume.
few questions he asked:-
Introduce yourself?
Family background? Your father’s qualification?
questionnaire on your achievements?
Then he gave me a situation that if i were to organize a declamation contest, how
will i?
Then he gave me 2 puzzles(1 was a situation and the the other was an
alphanumeric problem like we have in CAT)
Note: no puzzles were from Shakuntala Devi (if you are smart they are
OVERsmart!!!!)
then he asked me if i had any questions from my side.
To be honest, SELF-BELIEF CONFIDENCE COMMUNICATION SKILS are the
key words to crack an INFY interview.
They dont stress on your technical knowledge (they know they will make you
technically sound durin trainin) Whatever happens you jus dont have to lose your
cool.Jus stay calm an answer confidently.
Remember 2 things:
DONT FEIGN INTELLIGENCE.
HONESTY IS THE ONLY(and not BEST) POLICY
Anyways, that jus does it as far as my experience goes.
ALL THE BEST TO ALL MY FRIENDS WHO ARE PLANNING TO CRACK
INFOSYS!!!!!
INFOSYS PAPER ON 12th JULY
Infosys pattern
there were 2 sections
1.English (40 question 35 min)
2.verbal (30 question 40 min)
we were told to be reported at 8:30 in the morning nd at about 9:30 infy representator
sudhir mishra gave us a ppt about infosys. The presentation was really good nd everyone
was impressed by the ppt. he told us that the pay was Rs.3 lacs per annum

easy for people writing GRE or CAT

reamember this many of us went wrong here itself)and some conditions are give like this
J lower then k
H is highest note
E was higher den F
I some where between E and F
and dey gave some condt abt G also i dont remember it preperly if u take this data if u
will get position of only H and u will be knowing only dat E and F will not come
together and I lies somewhere between dem it means that there may be another noteses

INFOSYS PAPER ON 11th NOVEMBER 2007
Hi Guys and Girls, Hope all are doing well.. I attended Infosys off campus written test on
11/11/07 Sunday and got through the test and attended interview on 12/11/07. Test
results ‘ll be announced in 3 to 4 weeks as they said.
So, Here s the pattern of the written test I attended. No puzzles are asked in the written
test. The pattern is changed now.. The test consists of two sections, Logical Reasoning
and Verbal Ability.
The Logical Reasoning test consists of 30 qns and the time is 45 mins whereas the
Verbal Ability test consists of 40 qns and the time given is 30 mins. Logical reasoning qn
paper is given first. The first set had 5 qns asked from a logical reasoning paragraph. I
dont remember what it is bcos i dint hav time to attempt it.
The second set had 5 sequence qns in which one picture ‘ll be missing in the middle of a
5 picture sequence.. i think u can prepare from verbal and non verbal reasoning – RS
Agarwal for this set
The third set was of data sufficiency qns containing 5 qns. in which a qn ‘ll be asked in
the first line and two statements r given and v have to choose the option by whether the
qn s answered by the two statements or not.
Fourth set was Data Interpretation which had 5 qns. I attempted only one qn in this set
also cos qns were asked on how much percentages is that to this, which s very time
consuming. Fifth set also had 5 qns which is a Logical Reasoning set and the qn was like
if p and q play cric and football, p and s play cric and volleyball and so on.. and the qns
asked on who plays the maxi no of games.. this set is fairly easy if u form a table and
solve.. and the last set contains All A’s r B’s, All B’s r C’s kind of qns.. these are the
easiest in the LR section. (prepare 4m any cat material) Thats it for the LR section.
Follow RS Agarwal for Reasoning Overall.. Jus practice the type of qns i mentioned
here.. and u can easily crack them..
The Verbal Ability section had around 6 sets.
The first and second set both are Reading comprehension containing 5 qns each. Dont
attempt them first as they take hell a lot of time. also first go from the questions.. it’ll
relatively easy and reduce the time taken.. In the third set, we need to find the missing
statement. this ‘ll be relatively confusing n if u are careful it can be answered with a good
accuracy. In the fourth set, a statement in the given paragraph ‘ll be asked to replace by
another statement from the options which fits well.. The last set consists of a statement
from which inferences or logical followers are asked. I cracked around 18 qns out of 30
from LR and around 30 out of 40 from VA section.
INTERVIEW
I was asked to attend the interview on 12/11/07 at Infosys Sholinganallur campus. My
interview went for about 15 to 20 mins in which I was not asked any technical qns. Most
Submit your resume to [email protected]
Page 161 of 377

of the qns were from my resume. so careful guys, be thorough with ur resume.. Qns

1. Did u choose EIE at will or dat is wat u got..
2. What do u mean by Challenging environment in ur objective..( asked from my resume)
3. U hav mentioned dat u represented college for Chess, How do u relate Chess with real

pressured.
7. Have u ever led a team..
8. what have u done as a YRC member.
9. How will your branch of study (i.e EIE) will help u in this software field..
10. A puzzle the number 45 is divided into 4 parts.. the first part is added with 2 2nd part
sub by 2, 3rd part X 2 and 4th part divided by 2.. will result in a same number.. Ans. the
four parts are 8, 12, 5 and 20. ‘ll result in a same number 10.. After this she said dat if
selected i ‘ll be given training for 3 to 4 months and asked if i had any qns abt dat
training..
Dats all abt my written test and interview.. I think these ‘ll help u to prepare better for the
Infosys off campus.. Pray for me to get selected.. All the best to everyone attending the
test in the near future..
With lots and lots of love..

INFOSYS PAPER ON 5th DECEMBER AT HYDERABAD
Hi frs, I gave my infy test on 5th, it was thru CPM(placement assistance), 1080 approx,
70 written, After Hr we r said that, we wil be mailed within 4 or 5 weeks,
The pattern was as usual,
1-5, puzzle, The Q was like 5 couples went to picnic, room nos given, we hav to find
who is husband of whom, which room no they stayed, like that, , bit tough,
6-10 Figures, Odd man out, easy(not from Agarwal, but easy)
11-15, data sufficiency, Easy,
16-20 Data Interpretation, Easy, Time taking.
21-25 Puzzle,(like 3 females, males, three floors, three job roles, no female same job, no
same job in floor, etc. if we transfer ones roles to other, how to change male roles) , Easy
one, (like Agarwal puzzle test, jumbling type Q’s) )
26-30 Syllogisms, Prepare Agarwal,( for us in one line all three r given, like that 4 lines,
ex A is B, some B are C, All B are C
Z is B, all Z are T, All Z are B) )in that which is/are correct), This is Not exact que,
model.
We were given verbal after 5 min,
Paper was ok, general grammar,
Same Pattern,
(1-5, 6-10) 2 lengthy passages( i did in d last),
Fill in Blanks,
Error correction in the sentences,
Passage conclusion, detection,
———————————————-
(I think sectional cut off is there, i saw one paper with 19 Reasoning, 18 verbal was thru
wriiten)
My suggestion is, in Reasoning Work on topics like Figures, Data suffncy, Syllogisms
perfectly, they r easy to solve, less time taking)
In verbal see RC at the last,,,, see questions asked on conlusions carefully, i was askd for
contradict statement to conclusion)

INFOSYS PAPER ON 4th JUNE
This is Anirudh from bvrit .fortunately placed in infosys ! I would like to share my
experiences in the infosys interview which was conducted at DVR college on 4th June
2007.
Submit your resume to [email protected]
Page 170 of 377

Well the written test as always in infosys pattern has two sections …
Aptitude and verbal Ability
The TEST
Aptitude Test
2 puzzles…..each 5 marks ……so 10 marks here
5 questions on data interpretation …we got a pie chart
5 questions on data sufficiency
10 questions on syllogisms.
the secret is time management and planning
First answer the 10 syllogisms perfectly,then come to data sufficiency and then try to
solve the easy ones involving addition substraction and multiplication in data
interpretation..then if u find some tougher ones in data interpretation move on to the
puzzles.
Solve the puzzles if they are easy.Usually at least one puzzle is easy and the other may
be tough. Solve the tougher one after you attempted all other questions in the paper.
Syllogisms are easier and scoring don’t miss out them !Shud get 10 on 10.
But its not veryyyyyyy easy anyways ! bcoz u need to solve 4 of them per question..here
I give an example
Read the given statements in a,b,c,d and choose the right option.. like in which set of
statements the third statement can be derived from the preceeding two statements….refer
wikipedia.com now for exact meaning of syllogism.. u wll be clear..and solve the
Submit your resume to [email protected]
Page 171 of 377

a. All greens are whites ,some whites are blacks, some greens are blacks
b. Some horses are buffaloes,some buffaloes are mules, some horses are mules
c. Some monitors are keyboards,some keyboards are mice, no mice are monitors
d. No walls are roofs, no roofs are fans,some walls are fans .
1) a,b,c 2) only b,d 3 ) only a 4) b,c,d
The answer is 3 )…..
Attempt first
syllogism
then data sufficiency
then data interpretation ..if u find some difficult ones go for the puzzles
if one puzzle is very time consuming leave it ..make sure u do well for the rest 25 marks..
Verbal Test
2 Reading Comprehension passages..each 5 questions so 10 marks- huge passages almost
1.5 pages
5 questions on Meanings of words in a given sentence
10 questions on correction of sentences
5 questions on conclusion of a paragraph
In RC read the questions first and then go for the passages ..preferably read the first
sentences from each para so that u have an idea wats there in wch para…and then search
for the exact word specified in the question…these are easy to score don’t miss out RC
shud get 10 on 10.
As far as meanings are concerned we can hardly do anything if we have less time.. may
Submit your resume to [email protected]
Page 172 of 377

be you should start at least 2 weeks before… aassuming that u havent taken any gre
coaching (like me..i too didnt )
Correction of sentences: concentrate on prepositions used for some verbs..and when to
use plural and singular…..u should be good at grammar…sometimes we feel that all the
given options are correct except for one preposition …so check out these ….these are the
toughest 1s in the verbal part
Conclusion of a given paragraph…
This is perhaps the most easiest part in the whole infy test..read the given 3 liners quickly
but with concentration, understand them and answer the conclusion part..u may not find
the exact words of the passage in the options..you only find the idea of the passage in
them..
Attempt First :
Meanings of words in a sentence …..next
Passages…don’t read them fully..read the questions, then search in the passage.. then
next
Conclusion of paragraphs
Last …correction of sentence..this takes time so do the above 3 sections quickly .
Be quick but solve every bit with gr8 concentration
So all through the test your tag line should be QUICKLY BUT SURELY !!!
THOSE WHO HAVE ENOUGH TIME
VERBAL AND NON VERBAL REASONING BY RS AGARWALL

HEY GUYS ONE IMPORTANT INFO —- BEFORE YOU ENTER THE INTERVIEW
ROOM THE INTERVIEWER IS GIVEN YOUR MARKS’ SHEET….SO DO
WELL…JUST QUALIFYING MARKS MAY NOT BE ENOUGH ..THE MORE
MARKS THE MORE SAFE YOU ARE
THE INTERVIEW :
(Be your natural ! Don’t be a hypocrite .don’t act too cautious or too easy…be yourself..
that’s it !. After all you are not a movie star don’t act..b urself )
My interviewer was Mr.X
Always approach with a smile…no one is going to reject you just bcoz ur happy !
I entered the room with a J and
Me :Good evening sir
Mr X : Good evening , hmm take your seat.
Me: Thank you sir.
Mr X: So , both of your parents are working in railways ? why don’t you also try in
railways ?
(The infosys application form had info abt my parents occupation..u need to write them
in the form before the test)
Me : Sir, I’ve been professinally trained to be an engineer and I would not do justice to
my acquired knowledge and skills if I join railways just as my parents did.Surely even
they will not be happy if I choose to join railways.
(As expected he asks the next question)
Mr X: Then how do u think that ur electrical enginering skills r justified when u join IT
industry.
Me : Sir,I think engg in any field involves only creativity and innovation..the only
difference is that we apply them differently and in diff applications..and moreover
computer application and simulation is now in almost every field ..even in power systems
Submit your resume to [email protected]
Page 174 of 377

IT is applied in SCADA to control power distribution..besides I have been exposed to c
& ds,microprocessors computer architechture in during this enginerring..so I think……
Mr X : Hmm ok… tell about yourself…
I told abbt all my achievements and just briefly told abt my percentages with which I
paassed out.10 inter and that I had tried for iit during inter but could not clear mains so
wrote eamcet…so on.
He then gave me a sheet of paper and asked to select any one topic from a ten in it.. also
he mentioned that if I felt those topics were tough I could turn the other side of the paper
for easier topics…guys this I think is an atitude test..so I never turned the sheet other
side .
may be the other side was blank !! I selected the first topic and he told me to think for 30
seconds and start speaking abt it for 1 minute…..The topic i selected was…..
“ppl leave companies not just for money but for skills and growth”
I think I did well for abt some 50 secs… the last few secs I ran out of ideas and slowed
down and dragged it to the 1 min deadline..its easy guys ur ideas matter ..not the number
of them ..
He asked a simple question about magnetism and also a puzlle from shakuntala devi (it
seems.i never solved her). He will ask you to discuss how u solved the puzzle..
LAST BUT MAY BE THE MOST IMPORTANT :
MR X: ANY QUESTIONS ??
your growth in the company
career options there
what does a project manager really do other such questions that give him an impression
that ur looking forward to work in infy and so ur asking abt how to prepare b4 u join and
what exactly does ‘working’ mean in infy
Submit your resume to [email protected]
Page 175 of 377

DONT ask abt the increment in ur pays and the place of posting
I asked : whats the diff between a project manager and a programme manager ?
I had heard the word program manager for the 1st time in the ppt earlier in the day…
Also I asked about what actually what does a membership in Infosys Leadership Institute
demand.
Infy leadership institute is established at mysore for very efficient infy employees..this
was shown in the ppt earlier in the day.During the ppt make sure you dream something
about what to do after joining infy..so that you remember at this moment to ask him abt
it..career options are always mentioned in the ppts of all companies
All the best ….be original and make the original ‘you’ fit to get a job.

Verbal ability(VA) —— 40 Questions—— 35 minutes
—> Our “Aptitude” paper was above average level,i mean,it was a bit time consuming.
Actually it was a good aptitude paper.
I selected easiest of questions first and answerd thm.. thn accordingly, i solved some
more,in order of their increasing difficulty level. bt frankly speaking,i was able to solve
about 16-18 questions in the regulation time. Rest i made guesses( always do it,if
negative marking is not thr). U will clear the cut off without mch difficulty,if u hv
genuine understanding. Other option is read R.D.Sharma(i hd nt read it
Then our “Apti” paper was taken,and “VA” Q. paper ws given to us.
—> Now,this paper consist of 2 reading comprehensions & rest Sentence making &
Simple grammer.
i attempted reading comp. in the end as they r generally time consuming and less scoring.
So,first do the easy part,then the difficult one. This paper was comparitively easier than
previous one. No need to do extra to clear this one.
**NOTE— Each paper hs its individual cut-off.
After 1.5 hrs,our results wer out. Out of 110 students,about 73 wer shortlisted for
inerviews.
2) We hd 6 panels in total. One person in each panel. Interviews r basically of HR type.
Whr u will b asked to describe urself,abt the newspaper u read,something related to ur
interest,may be some puzzles(not tough) etc.
My interview ws basically the “stressed” one type. Whr i ws put under sme sort of
pressure(rude behaviour etc,it depends on ur luck and panel). My hobby ws music and
singing,so i ws asked abt music and even to sing a song(wch i sung well..) .
overall,it ws a typical HR interview.
If u hv confidance,u will clear it easily. Be cool during interview (sp during solving a
puzzle). My interview ws a stressed 15 min HR interview. (All other panals were
relatively cool and calm.)

Rohit was descending from the elavator which was not working. When he had stepped
down
7 steps his sir started from the bottom of the elevator and they passed each other and
when Rohit had still 4 steps to go down, his sir reached at the top. Taking into
consideration that sir’s 2 steps took same time as Rohit’s one what were the total no of
steps?
Ans
22 steps
let no of steps be x
speed=distance/time
Distance covered by Rohit = x-7-4 (7 steps already covered and 4 were still to go)
Distance covered by sir = x
Speed of Rohit =s
Speed of sir = 2s
Time taken is equal in both the cases so
Time(rohit)=time(sir)
(x-7-4) / s = x / 2s
2x – 22 = x
x=22

A vendor who is an ex-mathematician has a number of apples and when he arranges them
in rows of 3 he is left with one more, when he arranges them in rows of 5 again he is left
with 1 more, Same happens with when he tries to arrange them in rows of 7 and 9 that is
1 apple is left extra.
But when he arranges them in a row of 11 he is left with none. Can u tell me how many
apples were there?
Ans
946
the no is a multiple of 3,5,7,9 + a remainder of 1. So
3* 5* 7* 9= 945 + 1 =946
946 /11= 86
so it is divisible by 11 also.

taking the two points as two st. lines on xy plane and the point of
intersection as the answer). i think they must have given weightage to
the thought process. the written round is the main elimination round.
after that its a breeze. they really seemed nice people at the
interview, smiling and all, and it was over quickly. i was asked
questions frm my resume. thats all. so take care of the written test

test & I think I did well. Also I had given detail answers.
Q.1) Dr. Watson has 5 nephews. After he died he mentioned in his will that each of his
brother’s sons should get money according to their ages. The difference between each son
is Rs. 20 & youngest son got least money. Total money to be shared is 1000. How much
youngest son will get?
Ans:
Let the third i.e. middle son will get Rs. x then youngest son will get Rs. x-40.
=> Adding their shares = 1000
=> (x-40) + (x-20) + x + (x+20) + (x+40) = 1000
=> x = 200
=> x – 40 = 160
=> Youngest son will get Rs.160
Q.2) In a party there r total 1275 handshakes assuming each person did handshake with
other fellow. How many people attended the party?
Ans:
Let number of people attended the party = x then
Number of handshakes =xC2 = 1275
=> x * (x – 1) = 1275
2*1
=> x2 – x – 2550 =0
=> (x – 51)(x + 50) = 0
=> x cannot be negative
=> x = Number of people attended party = 51
Q.3) If one fifth of a hive of bees flew to the rose flower, one third flew to the lotus
flower, three times the difference of these two numbers flew to slandbara & one bee
continued to fly about, attracted on each side by the fragrant of ketaki & malati, what was
the total number of bees?
Ans:
X + X + 3( X – X ) +1 = X
3535
=> X = 15 = Number of bees.

Q.4) Due to some defect in our elevator, I was climbing down the staircase. I had climbed
down just 7 steps when I saw professor Zorkoski on the ground floor. Continuing to walk
down, I greeted him & I was surprised to see that when I was yet to get down 4 steps to
reach the ground floor, professor had already finished the climbing up 2 steps for every 1
of mine. How many steps did the staircase have?
Ans:
7X4

Ans: Temperatures on 5 consecutive days are: -2, -1, 1, 2, 3 in degree Celsius.
HR interview was cool. They didn’t ask me to explain myself, a most imp question. Being
a chemical engineer they keep asking me why you are not interested in chemical industry
& what u did in last 1 year. I explained them all truly & they look convinced. So my
advice is be true to them, they are among top mind readers. They will easily catch your
bluffs. They asked me which concept from computer u like most. I told them about
OOPS & explained it. They also asked me how u will adjust within a team. Such HR
questions. Then they had given me a simple puzzle.
Well this is all about my Infosys experience. I am waiting for the result.

INFOSYS-Placement Paper-11 June 2006-Chennai
Here are the questions that appeared in the test. I tried to give the exact words from the
test & I think I did well. Also I had given detail answers.
Q.1) Dr. Watson has 5 nephews. After he died he mentioned in his will that each of his
brother’s sons should get money according to their ages. The difference between each son
is Rs. 20 & youngest son got least money. Total money to be shared is 1000. How much
youngest son will get?
Ans:
Let the third i.e. middle son will get Rs. x then youngest son will get Rs. x-40.
=> Adding their shares = 1000
=> (x-40) + (x-20) + x + (x+20) + (x+40) = 1000
=> x = 200
=> x – 40 = 160
=> Youngest son will get Rs.160
Q.2) In a party there r total 1275 handshakes assuming each person did handshake with
other fellow. How many people attended the party?
Ans:
Let number of people attended the party = x then
Number of handshakes =xC2 = 1275
=> x * (x – 1) = 1275
2*1
=> x2 – x – 2550 =0
=> (x – 51)(x + 50) = 0
=> x cannot be negative
=> x = Number of people attended party = 51
Q.3) If one fifth of a hive of bees flew to the rose flower, one third flew to the lotus
flower, three times the difference of these two numbers flew to slandbara & one bee
continued to fly about, attracted on each side by the fragrant of ketaki & malati, what was
the total number of bees?
Submit your resume to [email protected]
Page 268 of 377

Ans:
X + X + 3( X – X ) +1 = X
3535
=> X = 15 = Number of bees.
Q.4) Due to some defect in our elevator, I was climbing down the staircase. I had
climbed down just 7 steps when I saw professor Zorkoski on the ground floor.
Continuing to walk down, I greeted him & I was surprised to see that when I was yet to
get down 4 steps to reach the ground floor, professor had already finished the climbing up
2 steps for every 1 of mine. How many steps did the staircase have?
Ans:
7X4
|————– |——————|—————-|
From figure, equation becomes : 7 + X + 4 = 2X
=> X = 11
=> Total number of steps = 7 + 11 + 4 = 22
Q.5) Complete the following series:
a) 3, 6, 13, 26, 33, 66, ?
Ans:
3*2=6
6 + 7 = 13
13 * 2 = 26
26 + 7 = 33
33 * 2 = 66
66 + 7 = 73
73 * 2 = 146
Series : 3, 6, 13, 26, 33, 66, 76, 146
b) 364, 361, 19, 16, 4, 1, ?
Ans:
364 – 3 = 361
O(364) = 19
19 – 3 = 16
Submit your resume to [email protected]
Page 269 of 377

O(16) = 4
4-3=1
O(1) = 1
1 – 3 = -2
Series: 364, 361, 19, 16, 4, 1, 1, -2
Q.6) A man was asked to meet a lady lawyer who had a good logical skill. Today is
Saturday. A man wanted her appointment. She called her three days after the day before
the day after tomorrow. What is the appointment day?
Ans:
Today = Saturday
Day after tomorrow = Monday
Day before the day after tomorrow = Sunday
Three days after the day before the day after the tomorrow = Wednesday
Therefore, Appointment day is Wednesday.

young according to age of wizards. Let me tell u, I m thrice my son’s age & my father’s
age is 40 more than twice of my age. Total of our ages is 1240 years. What is the age of
wizard?
Ans:
Submit your resume to [email protected]
Page 270 of 377

Let wizard’s son age = X then wizard’s age = 3X & his father’s age = (6X+40)
=> X + 3X + 6X + 40 = 1240
=> X = 120
Wizard’s age = 360 years

INFOSYS-Placement Paper- Jan 2006
I passed with an above average aggregate. I had my first interview in a relative s
company in Chennai-post of software trainee-programmer in C and C++. But it was
under recommendation that I was called to attend the test. So did not accept their offer. I
applied for Infy, CTS and TCS and many more MNCs. I attended caritor off campus and
lost in final round.
On 27th Dec., I got the long awaited Infy call letter for test on jan 8th which I attended
yesterday. I prepared very sincerely for a 9-10 days. Finishing Shak.Devi book, George
book and Ravi Narula, I went through loads of puzzles from brain vista and old papers. I
was through with 2004,2004 and 2005 papers.
45/1254 were short listed. Due to stiff competition, I lost in the test. I did a 8 correct.
I am not giving the answer, try yourself that’s the best way to solve puzzles.

INFOSYS PAPER ON 8th MAY AT BANGALORE
Hi friends, This is Adith,
Infosys came to our college for on campus recruitment but it was not just for our college
but also for 6 other colleges and itz called pool campus Complete recruitment process
was finished in 1 day and it was done in a well organized manner. There were around 500
students who wrote the aptitude test out of which around 90 students got through the
aptitude test. Finally around 60 out of 90 students who attended the interview got the job.
Now i will brief about my experience,
The aptitude test consists of 2 sections Logical Reasoning and English. First, the logical
reasoning paper will be given which contains 30 questions and the time given is 35 mins.
Next the english paper will be given which consists of 40 questions and the time given is
35mins.
The two question papers will be given separately and you dont have have to worry much
about time management for different sections since you will be attempting the two papers
one after the other separately. The reason they conduct this way is becoz they are looking
at our skills separately and they give preference to English score. We were asked to keep
our application form on top and then the english answer sheet and then logical reasoning
answer sheet at the bottom.
As far as the logical reasoning was concerned it was quite a normal paper and r.s
aggarwal wil be sufficient to do it well. Honestly i dint prepare from any book but for
those of you who like to prepare, the book i mentioned will be more than enough. there is
Submit your resume to [email protected]
Page 304 of 377

no negative marking and plzz attempt all the questions. I dint do this section great but i
was confident that i would be able to clear the cut offs which i guess was around 15.
Now, english paper is tuff and has all sorts of questions including comprehension, fill in
the blanks, to find out the grammatically correct sentence etc. now people you have to be
fast and dont do the passages in the beginning but come to it in the end. once again attend
all the question as there is no negative marking. This English paper is important, so do it
well. Well english needs good vocabulary, reading speed, ability to comprohend a certain
given material etc. i did this English paper really well as i love English and i am always
comfortable with this section. I guess the english cut off was 20+.
Altogether the aptitude paper is definitely standard especially the English part.
The aptitude test finished at 2 pm. the results were announced at around 4pm. The only
other round and the final round was HR. so people, this is your chance and dont spoil it.
they simply dont ask even a single technical question but definitely they are looking at
good communication skills, confidence and personality.
My interview was at around 5pm and it was like this
ME: may i come in?
HR: plz come in … take your seat (dont sit until he tells you to)
ME: good afternoon sir
HR: thank you
HR: so adith introduce yourself…..
ME: introduced myself (i did this with great confidence, i told a bit about myself, my
family, my background and my schooling and college and in the end of introduction i
gave him a quote in which i completely believe in , Henry Ford said “IF YOU THINK
YOU CAN DO SOMETHING OR IF YOU THINK YOU CANT DO SOMETHING,
EITHER WAY YOU ARE CORRECT”)
HR: (quite impressed with my introduction he went on to ask ) So adith tell me
ME: answered this (told him about my passion towards having great personality, about
being a leader in a certain group etc etc, one can also mention if he or she has taken part
in co-curricular activities etc)
HR: have you done any other corse apart from your academics
ME: answered this (i told him about my dot net course that i did from niit)
HR: ok tell me adith WHY SHOULD INFOSYS HIRE YOU?
ME: answered this yet again with great confidence (told him everything about my
personality traits, gave him enough positive points about myself and finally i went on to
say that i deserve the job in every way)

Page 305 of 377

HR:ARE YOU READY WORK ANYWHERE IN INDIA?
ME: YES (you dont have an option, if you want to get placed you have to say yes )
HR: (was completely convinced and smiled and said) THANK YOU ADITH . DO YOU
HAVE ANY QUESTIONS FOR US?
ME: i asked him about the system followed in infosys to evaluate an employee’s
performance (i asked this question specifically as i indirectly wanted to give him a clue
that i wanted to join them and perform well and hence wanted to know )
HR: answered my question
ME: i said THANK YOU
HR: again smiling , offered a hand shake
ME: happily shaked hand (who wouldnt do this?)
ME: again said thank you (i put the chair back in its place and left the interview room
Atlast my interview was over and i was very happy when i came out. Although i was
confident i will be offered the job, i kept my fingers crossed until the results were
announced. At 9pm the results were announced and when they read my name ……… i was
simply blown away and felt on top of the world……… couldnt beleive it for a few minutes
and then the feeling started exploding. IT WAS A GREAT MOMENT
THE ONLY THING I WANT TO TELL YOU ALL “FEEL GOOD……………….FEEL
GOOD……………….FEEL GOOD” SO ALL THE VERY BEST FRIENDS, WHO

INFOSYS PAPER ON 17th APRIL AT NOIDA
Hello fellow friends and INFOSYS aspirants
i am “Ashish Kaushik” from “IEC college Gr. Noida” INFI was here at 17th of April
2007 i have been selected in the company, and wanna extend a helping hand to all of my
fellow friends who are on the same/ or wanna be on the same side.. but before i start i
would like to express my sincere regards and wana thank to all those friends/colleagues
and seniors who always had their advices and moral building attitude to help me in
preparing for my Placement..
“ALL THE VERY BEST MY FRIENDS … KEEP UP THIS SPIRIT.. ” NOW COMING
TO THE TOPIC INFI and its procedure:::::
plz NOTE that there was NO NEGATIVE MARKING IN ANY OF THE TESTS INFI
TOOK…SO ATTEMP FULLY
Step1: First of all there was a form given to us to fill.. it included all the details like Sem
marks, 10th , 12th marks, working experience, address details etc etc.. u r given 30 mins
to fill it correctly(especially the SEM aggregate Marks) and are Required to have a
passport size photo along with it..
Step2: after the Form was filled we were given the Test Answer Sheet And Paper
test::1 APTITUDE AND REASONING..
The Paper Consisted Of 30 Questions (all one marks):::and time alloted was 45 min::::::
the paper consisted of the Following topics::
1. Data Interpretation:: 5 ques.
i advice u to prepare the pie chart(which came in my paper) and tabular chart Questions
thorughly as they give good marks on a carefull observation
2. Logical Reasoning::5 Ques
It consisted of the PET syllogic Ques.. like 1. all Charts are Wire 2. all wires are frames
and some conclusions were given
#Advice# use VENN Diagrams for solving them.. they ae faster and accurate.
3. Puzzles :: 5Ques
they consisted of Ques like A,B,C,D,E had a sum of money, the total was Rs.100
->>the total of money A+B had was equal to that of C+D..
>A had half the money B had, D has more money than C..
>> D has 5 more than B..
and Ques were like:: Who HAS THE MOST/LEAST AMOUNT OF
MONEY
HOW MUCH MONEY DID ‘c’ HAVE… and three other (i dont rem exacxtly )
#ADVICE# do not attempt to solve fully .. in most cases “solving” is not as imp as
“observation”
#ADVICE# TIME MANAGEMENT is the key resource to crack Infi exam
Submit your resume to [email protected]
Page 314 of 377

so try to observe Ques(not only this but all) Carefully and examine the fact it helps to
save Time.. and improves accuracy.. only when it is needed factually u should do the
cacluations
4. IMAGE QUESTIONS ::: NON VERBAL.. 5QUES..
some were easy n some were tricky.. we had to find the Next Figure in the series ..i mean
we were given 5 figures following a definite pattern and we had to find the next
Succeeding Figure..
#ADVICE# the Key again lies in Carefull observation
>>>>some of them i would like to share with u >>> —>>> Rotation(clockwise or anti)
—>>Degree (the degree to which the figure has moved)–>>whether some lines or figure
is being constantly added or subtracted and if yes then in which manner
5 it Was a mix of DATA INTERPRETATION+DATA SUFFICIENCY+PUZZLE ::::::
5qUES
% note% THAT WE DID NOT GET ANY PROBLEMS REGARDING BLOOD
RELATiONS but i wud recommend u to go through it also, as it has come in previous
papers… so u shud be well prepared for Infi…
##ADVICE## U CAN REFER TO R.S.AGGARWAL VERBAL AND NON VERBAL
(ITS SUFFICIENT TO CRACK INFI) IF U WANNA PRACTICE MORE, TRY
ABHIJEET GUHA IT IS ALSO A NICE BOOK..
test:: 2 english Test 30QUES & 35MINS.
friends i would like to remind u that English in INFI has a good level so prepare it in a
better way.. its not that its tough.. but ur preperation will give u the time margin so that u
can score well..
it was Divided in the following::
1. LONG Comprehension.. and Short Comprehensions ( avoid doing them first as they
consume a lot of time… attend them later)
2. Sentence Correction..given will be three long sentences and u will have to choose the
best of them grammatically and logocally correct..
3. Fill in the blanks..choose the best phrase that would fit in
4. WORD meaning.. there was only one Ques on It —-The word was CALUMNIOUS
and we had to find the meanings closest to it..
##ADVICE## u can practice comprehension by reading the editorial coloumn of ur daily
newspaper and for the rest try “Wren And MArtin” it’s worth it.. Trust me!!
and thats all it was on the written side… REST was my interview..
THE INTERVIEW..
went for about (20-22 min) the procedure was..
I Entered the room after his( the interviewer’s) permission and sat on the chair when he
insructed(never sit without his permission it creates a bad impression) he gave me an
attendance sheet to fill.. after that he asked me to sign on two places on the form which i

INFOSYS PAPER ON 8th APRIL AT DELHI
hi all….. i appeared for the test on 8th april,2007 at cambridge foundation school,new
delhi……..my experience was really unusual……..i reached the test centre one hour before
the scheduled time…..after half an hour three or four students walked in….i was of the
view that….there must be around 1000 students( as i had gone through diff candidates
expe.) but was astonished to c that we were just 7 students who had to appear for the
test…..n a staff of around 14-15 were standing to welcome us….they were gossiping n
same were we doing…as both the parties were surprised…as infy had send call letters to
1700 students….may be that was my luck that just 7 reached there……we took the
test…..analytical part was very easy….it had 6 questins with 5 internal questions…….
1). data interpretation…:: in this question few missing figures were there in the table…..n
hints were given to find them…then 5 questions were there on that data……it was bit
tricky…may be i had not much time to solve that …otherwise…it was easy….
Submit your resume to [email protected]
Page 329 of 377

2) there were 5 questions based on figures…like 5 figures were given we had to find the
missing figure from the options…it was easy…n i think it depends on how cool minded u r
at that point of time….otherwise it doesnt need practice….
3) there were 5 syllogisms…most of them were from RS aggarwal…..
4) again data interpretation….based on sale of food items…it was an easy one …..this
again was a simple table….no graphical data was there….
5) there was puzzle…it was also easy……
6)data sufficiency : it was mathematical questions based….but i would like to tell u…that
RS aggarwal is more than sufficient…..many people advised me to do times material…or
cl…but i think once you solve RS aggarwal fully…its more then sufficient…ya what u
wont get in RS agggrwal is DI questions…for that saolve few from any cat material…ya
for data sufficiency….solve mathematics based data sufficiency…questions….
next english paper was very lengthy…it had two passages…leave them for last….then error
finding,incorrect sentences,choose the correct option kinds question were
there…..remember to be calm through out….don’t loose patience….remember it doesnot
have negative marking so if anything is left out…you can make guesses also…..just keep
track of your speed…….my advise will be that when few days r left 4 exam…just set
timers 4 forty minutes n try to solve 40 questions…i mean just practice to work fast…..
after the test we were asked to wait 4 half an hour…..all of us were in a very strange
state…coz we were very few…n were not clear what would be the criteria of short
listing…suddenly…a gentleman walked in our room n called my name….i was not atall
prepared for what was going to happen next…n to my surprise he took me to a
room….where my interview started…..it was without notice…in a hurry i switched off my
mobile…they were sitting in a class room…so atmosphere was also not suggestive….i
wished them…they started with…tell us about yourself…told
then my strengths….where did i show my leadership skills in real time scenario….all of
the sudden one of them started taking my technical…that was again a shock…as i was a
fresher…n that too unexperienced…i had done msc stats….n he was also 4m stas
backgroung…so i was caught….anyhow i managed…then there was bombardment of
mixed questions…technical as well as hr…..then they gave me a vicarious situation and
asked me to add innovations…i did…atlast they said that i ll be intimated within 2 or three
weeks…..i thanked them and came our…few other staffmembers were standing there… i
asked them about other candidates they said only i was shortlisted…that was again a
surprise….then they told us that test will again be conducted there on 15th april for those
called 1700 students as they didnt get call letters…..thank god i was saved……..now lets
see what happens…….i m just praying to GOD that everything ends well…..coz ours
situation was really strange….i dont know whether they will consider our test or not….just
pray 4 me please…all the best to all of you…trust yourself you ll do it… i was also very
phobic about the test….but its not actually that tough…remember its based on CAT style
Submit your resume to [email protected]
Page 330 of 377

but not difficult as that….so trust yourself…….u can do it…..and for interview….dont cram
anything…just be clear what to say …let it come direct from ur heart…coz thaey people r
experienced …n will rightly judge if u have cramed anything…….dont lie anywhere…be
honest…..no body can beat you then……they just see how confident you are n how honest
you are…all the best
INFOSYS PAPER ON 6th APRIL , Agra
Hi friends,
Tips:
1) crack wriiten test with a good score there is no chance for cheating because infosy will
not allow u to do that as they have there pannel to conduct the exam ur collage have no
role on it.
2) Have ur Acedemic records over 70%(u r eligible to sit if u hv 65% in C.B.S.E or 60%
in state board)it really matters at the time of interview.
3) Be Confidant n dont lie them.
On pool campus derive of infosy on 5th April out of 962 students 203 had successfuly
cracked the written paper in which 44 r from our college (I.E.T Agra)
The test is conducted under two sections:
(A) The analytical reasoning part(40 min & 30 questions)
(B) English usage (30 min & 40questions)
Infosys is following the cat pattern and is concentrating on the candidates time
management, general aptitude And vocablury.
(1)English paper was tough one but conains questions from our daily English usage,a
person with average english speaking skills have to work more in this section, no
antonyms ,synonyms were asked so no need learn those from barons for infy atleast. it
consis to two passage one is easy n other is not so easy as it was too long so preferable do
it at last. there are some question to correct the sentance n like this be prepeared for ur
gramatical skill if u r lacking it in urs than forget abt infy, so start prepearing for it frm a
good grammer book like wren n martin.
(2) Analytical portion was quite easy one only u have to think abt is for time managment
i will suggest u to do Data intepretations at last. there r questions frm missing figure n
odd man out like this.u just refer too R.S.Agarwaal it will help u to crack it.
On next day (6th April)all shortlisted candidate r asked to report at the college at 10 am
sharp for college wise interview. The interview was really cool one there are 13 pannels
who r taking the interviews of 13 different students at one time. they simply want to
Submit your resume to [email protected]
Page 331 of 377

judge ur speaking n communication ability,so if u r good on that then there is abt 90%
chance of getting shortlisted in final list.
on my interview they simply ask question frm my resume espessialy frm my hobbies so
be prepeared for it with a good example. for example if ur hobbie is listening music then
u must know what type of music n who is the singer of tht music who composed the song
like this they can ask any thing,they asked me abt my state.so get ready for it.
at 5 pm sharp they announsed the result out of 203 the final list consist of 122 sucessful
candidates(including me).
From our college I.E.T agra we 27 students are finally got selected and i thanx to all my
teachers n friends who coperated with us.
With warm regards,

Submit your resume to [email protected]
Page 333 of 377

5) If either statement alone was sufficient to answer the question
A little practice from RS Aggarwal Verbal n Non Verbal or any CAT material will help u
answer these kinds of questions
4) Data Interpretation….questions were direct but need quick calculations
We were given a table tat had the info abt the sales of 3 companies A,B n C for different
years..1990 to 1998..
The total sales n price/unit was given..
We had to calculate stuff like
1) avg price/unit of company C
2) the percentage increase in the no. of units produced by Company A from 1991 to
1992
3) the year in which the no. of units produced by Company C decreased a second time
4) The year in which maximum no of units were produced…something like tat
The price/unit was given in decimals like 3.4 n the sales something like 501 etc.. hence
there was a lot of division to do…try to approximate the values n calculate wherever
comparison is involved… Practise from RS Aggarwal Quantitative Aptitude ..try timing
ur self…
5) Puzzle based on Blood Relations…easy
A family with members A,B,C,D,E and F….2 married couples…3 females…n the
relations among them were given…
N questions like..Which of the following pairs represents a married couple?Etc were aske
Draw a family tree…it’ll help u answer the questions
6)Logical deductions
In this section abt 5 statements were given n we had to find out which of them were
logically related…
These were not the usual syllogism(all,some etc) type..

You get 2 comprehensions both were quite simple…but do the comprehensions at the

grammatically correct..look for spelling mistakes..grammar errors etc…
10 questions based on choose the best option to replace the underlined part..
Simple paragraphs were given n questions were asked like which of these statements can
be inferred from the para, which is false according to the para etc…
STEP 5: HR INTERVIEW
In the HR round u are basically asked abt ur self, ur résumé. There are no tech questions
asked n even if asked it will be very basic stuff…
They also ask puzzles…u need not solve them..they only look at ur approach..
The questions I was asked..
1) Tell me abt ur self
2) If u were to organize an activity in our company that is fun, stressful and involves
physical activity wat wld u organize n how wld u go abt doing
it??
3)Abt any project or computer course tat I had attended
4) Any questions??
They hardly eliminated people in the HR..it is enough if u speak confidently..
Getting thru Infy is not tough at all…If ur good with ur Apti n have a good command

Bankura Unnayani Institute of Engineering, Bankura and I am proud to be so. I have got
selected in Infy through a pooled campusing and I want all of u to be my Friend there.
At the Very Beginning let me make u very clear about the fact that the Ques pattern of
Infy have changed totally, and to some extent puzzles free. Their will be a single set.

1. Puzzle on classification from RS agarwal.
2.Ques on finding next image from given sequence.
3. Data sufficiency.
4. Data Interptation.
5.Syllogism
6.Puzzle on Blood relation from RS Agrawal
Puzzles were of Type:….. A,B,C,D,E three persons having dogs Jim,Con,Tom…. having
freinds X,Y,Z,F,G and their doctors were h,j,k,l,v……..etc.
Five condition were given like:- Jim is not A’s dog, Y is D’s Friend….etc.
Now Five Questions were their from the above hints.It was very time killing and I did it
at the end.
Data interpretation was a Pie chart along with a table.It was fairly very easy.
100% can be scored from Data Sufficiency part: include ages,average,Time dist,Blood
Relation.
The rest sections were easy too, preparing R.S. Aggarwal will be more than enough.
Second Part English:-
Next was English Test. In that there were 40 ques to be solved in 35 min.

Catagory &. as stated above can be scored fully.
PPT:- 0ne hour, It was excellent.
HR Interview:-
It was one of the most easiest round and eliminating too….Once you get nervous, you are
gone…
I entered the room with a wonderful smile and the person came out of his seat and
aplauded me heavily saying “What a wonderful smile Gentleman”. I almost got through
at the First site.
They may give U small brain teasers,like I was given:– I ate 100 rasgullas for the past 5
days, each day i ate 6 rasgullas more than the previous day. 2day is the 5th day and i have
completed 100 sweets.How many did i eat yesterday.
The are definitely going to ask U to speak on Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam for 2mins. Then I
was asked to compare him with Daud Ibrahm.
At the middle he told me that “You haven’t impressed me. I give you a last chance, you
have 2 mins, now impress me”.My communication was very good, I have given all the
questions confidently. So I understood he was trying to make me nervous. But I then
boomeranged him with a puzzle and he said “Bravo, Bravo…”.
From small questions they will go on testing your presence of mind. No trace of technical
is there in the whole procedure.
Written is the most vital,once it is clear, U R 90% placed.
I have also been selected by L&T Infotech.

INFOSYS PAPER ON 24th MARCH AT DURGAPUR
Hi frz.. I am Reekodipto (REEK’) from College Of Engineering & Management
Kolaghat.
My experience… It was a long journey from KOLKATA. We reached the venue by 7:30.
The PPT was supposed to start at 9:30 but it was delayed to 10:20 when finally the HR
Manager Madame Padma Kini came on stage & started the PPT.
The PPT was of a duration of more than an hour, which made most of us restless. Around
10 colleges participated and around 1200 students turned up for the occasion. But as the
cut off was declared, around 500 were eliminated.
So friends please heed to the criterion very well. Even a one mark short or a 0.1 % short
was not entertained by any means.
The cut off was as follows…
Submit your resume to [email protected]
Page 342 of 377

ICSE / ISC / CBSE — 65% throughout. (All 6 Subjects).
WB Board — 720/1200 (H.S).
Other Boards — 65% throughout.
B.Tech — 65% or 6.5 (average).
Diploma Holders should have 65% in class 10, 65% in B.Tech and 65% in any one in
Class-12 or in their diploma results; whichever is higher can be considered. However
there was a 5% relaxation for all in one of the examinations except for Diploma Holders
and WB Boards.
So please be careful with the eligibility criterion & note it well when INFOSYS
announces the same.
APTITUDE TEST :
One student in the PPT asked Padma about the cut off in the aptitude test but she blindly
refused to utter a single word about that, instead she said, “ It is strictly Confidential and
under no circumstances we will declare the cut off ”.
The Paper comprises of two parts – firstly the logical reasoning part, which was of a
duration of 40 minutes and secondly the English part was of a duration of 30 minutes.
Before starting off, you will be required to fill up a form along with a passport size
photograph. You will not get the TWO PAPERS together. Only after the completion of
the stipulated time, you will get the next paper.
The Logical reasoning part was a bit difficult. Also you have to manage your time very
well. Don’t waste too much time for a single question.
There were two puzzles, one was easy and another one was a 20 variables puzzle, which
many of my friends couldn’t solve. I don’t know how I manage to solve it. The puzzles
was not of the R.S. Aggarwal standard. It was quite difficult. I solved almost all puzzles
from R.S. Aggarwal but neither of them was of that standard. But if you proceed in the
correct manner, I don’t think it will be difficult to solve. Remember well to use the rough
sheet as during evaluations, they make check your rough sheet.
There was one problem from blood relations, which was easy. There were 5 picture series,
which were of below standard. I think this everybody has done it correctly. Then there
was a problem from PIE CHARTS, but it was too confusing but not difficult. Read the
question very well before answering. There were 5 syllogisms, which comprises of 5
different interpretations for each. You have to choose the correct option. For this you can
practice from R.S.Aggarwal. But the laws there given never went into my head.
The second paper is the English aptitude. This comprises of two comprehensions, which
was too lengthy. The best way to solve this in quick time is to go through the questions
first and then try to find the answer from the comprehension. Because if you start reading
the whole comprehension, be rest assured that you are not clearing the aptitude test of
INFOSYS. You can try it out. The other questions were from sentence completion, fill in
the blanks with an appropriate word, preps etc. This section was very easy to score.

I being a student from ISC board, didn’t find any difficulties in solving the English
section, but some of my friends who have come from Bengali medium, found the paper
to be a difficult one.
The results were declared after 3 hours. Out of around 800, only 95 cleared in the
aptitude test and 22 cleared from my college. Luckily I was one of them.
PERSONAL INTERVIEW :-
There were 10 panels and hence this round was moving at a brisk pace. Though each was
interviewed for at least half an hour .
Now let me share my experience…
Panel number one called me.
The interview..
Interviewer : Please have seat.
I: Thank you, Sir.
Interviewer : So Reekodipto..What a good name. Can you say the meaning of your name?
I: It means that I am being enlightened from the Rig Veda.
Interviewer : So you are from Electrical Engineering Department, right? How can we fit
you in INFOSYS?
I: I also know C, C++, which are also my favorite subjects.
Interviewer : Good. So Reek shall I ask you general questions or technical questions?

I: I explained.
Interviewer : Good. Can you solve this series?
I: (It was a combination of 4 series & I solved it with an ease and turned the
paper in his direction and said 6 is my answer which was followed by my justification.)
Interviewer : Have you seen yesterday’s match? (Ind Vs SL) Do you know the Score?
I: No, Sir I couldn’t see India’s batting, but I have seen SL’s batting and I
told the score.
Interviewer : Don’t you think that the Indian players are overpaid?
(Answered elaborately, citing examples)
I:
Interviewer : You have quite an interesting email id . Can you say why have you used
such name?
I: In my school days my friends use to call me by that name. That is the only
reason that I have used such name.
Interviewer : Any special reasons behind that? Your friends were boys or…
I: No…No…No…I used to study in a mono-ed school.
Interviewer : Which school were you in?
I: DON BOSCO.

Page 344 of 377

I: Playing Sudoku and Photography.
Interviewer : Quite an interesting hobby…good. One last question- Do you think audio-
visual is important in today’s modern day world? Justify your answer.
I: (Said a lot about this..my school used to have an audio-visual room…and
many more and lastly concluded citing an example)
Interviewer : Ok reek, Thanks you may leave..
I: Thank You Sir, It was a pleasure to interact with you.
The results were declared at 10:10 pm by Padma Kini and only 45 cleared out of 95, out
of which 8 were from our college and I was one of them. Padma exclaimed to us by
saying INFOSCIONS…We were very happy.
Some Important Findings:
Ø Whatever you say, you should have proper justification at the back of your mind
because the next question can be that
Ø You can expect some current affairs questions specially the names of our ministers.
Ø Though many says that Shakuntala Devi is not required but some of my friends
were asked some questions from that book in their interview.
Ø Good communication skill is a must in INFOSYS, which are not so important in
other companies.
Ø You can expect some situational questions in your interview.
Do not try to bluff the interviewer as they are very quick in reading your minds.
Ø
Ø Be confident in whatever you are saying.
Ø Do not try to use many ornamented words as that can lead you to trouble.
Ø Believe in yourself and then believe in ALMIGHTY.

Page 352 of 377

Time management is very very necessary while doing the English part… You will be
given two long passages and some questions below that.. You have to read the Passage to
answer the questions.. Attempt this part at last… If you attempt this first you wont have
time to read the remaining questions… So be carefull in this… Be thorough with
Grammars… Especially tenses…
And for Logical reasoning just follow any CAT book or RS Agarwal’s non verbal
reasoning…
1.Syllogism
2.Data Sufficiency
3.Data Interpretation
4.Missing Figures
5.Blood Relation
6.Cubes and Indices
7.Puzzle. Puzzles in RS Agarwal is enough… No need to study Shakuntala devi..
Then have patience…Bcoz it takes hell lot of time for the results to be out..We finished
the written test at 12.30 and they were supposed to announce the result at 3 but they
announced only at 6… I was very happy when they called out my name.. 500 student
were attended.. 49 cleared the aptitude..So this round is very very important… 47 cleared
the HR..
Then i called for HR at 9.30 pm….It was a stress interview.. But i made him cool… I
greeted him.. He asked my name and the meaning of my name… Many questions were
about my native…. Infosys was the second company coming to my college.. First was
Wipro.. And he asked me why you were not selected for wipro.. I told him that i didnt
perform upto their mark… And he asked me what do you know about Infosys? I told
something which i have heard in PPT..Then he asked me do you ever visit the website of
Infosys? I told no.. Then he told me that iam not interested in learning new things… For
that i replied, Sir! for the last two weeks i was very busy with my internals and
Preparation for Wipro.. Then he started asking some questions about wipro..Just to
check whether iam telling truth or not.. He asked me the name of the Chairman and Vice
Chairman of Wipro..And some questions regarding Wipro.. I answered him.. I think
he was satisfied with my answers..And my friends were given some puzzels to solve…
And finally he told that he likes my name very much and told me to wait for the
result…Finally they announced the results at 11 pm…My name was one among the 47..It
was one of the happiest moment in my life…
No technical, they just test your confidence,presence of mind and general awareness…So
update yourself… Dont be tensed… Just have a smiling face.. Thats enough.. Be truthfull…
If you dont know just tell i dont know sir.. Dont pretend as you know.. They will easily
find out…
Pray well and attend with Confidence….This is more important than anything… All the
best… See you in Infosys

The aptitude was peace of a cake (provided done homework on that).it had 30 qiestions.
There were two puzzles(5 questions each puzzle), 5 questions on syllogism, 5 on data
suficiency, 5 on data interpretation and other five questions were from series detection.
just go for R.S.Aggarwal(verbal & non-verbal) for the aptitude part.its more than enough.
Now here comes the english section(40 questions), it was the deciding factor in the
written test.

alternative sentence for underlined words in a given sentence.

INFOSYS PAPER ON 21st MARCH AT BANGALORE
Hi guys,
Here are some tips to crack Infy. As you know the exam pattern of infy has been changed
recently. Before we used to have a lot of puzzles and then basic English. Now the pattern
is somewhat easy. 100 % Presence of mind and 75% intelligence can get you through.
Mine was an online exam. Guys the questions cannot be solved fully in their provided
time. Some questions need lot of thinking and consumes time. Just skip those questions
taking lot of time and finish others.. ‘coz you can solve others with ease and after gaining
confidence by solving those questions.. surprisingly the question you left will seem easier.
So just carry on with the easier ones as fast as possible. The Non- English session
has questions from the following….
1. Data sufficiency
2. Data Interpretation.
3. SYLLOGISM – – Very important. and somewhat difficult. Refer the 9 rules from R.S
Aggarwal. Memorise those. However the question is in different manner from that of RS
Aggarwal. Here i give an example however this is not the same question but the same
pattern…
Question:
statement A: Some men are educated.
B: Educated persons prefer small families
C: All small families are educated.
D: some men prefer small families.
E: bla bla bla bla…. ( this is not the exact sentence man… just some other
sentences.. i cant remember..)
Choose from the following which is logically correct..
1. ABC
2. EBC
3. ACD
4.ABD
Submit your resume to [email protected]
Page 367 of 377

Here the answer is ABD. Like wise some 5 questions.. If you prepare it throughly you
can easily get 5/5 in less time. saving time for others.
4. Puzzle test– This does not mean the puzzles we see in Shahuntala devi but they’ll give
a passage and we must get the details from that and solve the questions following it.
These examples can be found in RS Aggarwal verbal and Non verbal reasoning.
Concentration is the key !.
5. Spot the odd figure out:
This session was somewhat tough guys… Also you should have good pair of eyes to view
the images correctly.. If possible get a lens !!! Observe deeply and mark the answers.
Refer RS aggarwal for this too…
For all the above portions refer RS Aggarwal verbal and non verbal… Its enough. But
work out all the examples… and test yourselves with some hard exercise. RS Agg is more
than enough. Also refer.. from the asme book … series completion, direction sense test,
Blood relation, cubes and dice…
Regarding English session. It was a bit tough. Attempt the passage comprehension at the
last else you’ll be reading it till next batch comes !! Long passages.. Good grammar can
get you through in this session.
After the finish of online exam we were asked to wait for 1/2 an hour…. FInally the
shortlisted candidates list were exhibited. By God’s grace i was fortunate to be in it. Out
of 30.. 5 were shortlisted….
Soon we were called for HR round… I went last… i was interviewed by 2 fems… Just
1. there was a water bottle in front of us.. they asked me give 10 examples how you can
use it other than filling liquid…
me: blah.. blah… blah…
2. If i drink some water from this bottle how can you measure the reamaining amount
without any conventional measurement !!!
said — can be done by counting the number if stripes in that bottle… But they were not
impressed asked me someother way… I surrendered!!
3. Gave me a puzzle….
Bring 100 out of seven 3’s…. another boy in my batch was asked bring 23 from five 5s.
However we both ddnt solve it… Its not a problem they just see how you proceed ….
Later i found the answer to be as 333/3 – 33/3 = 100 and 5*5 – 5/5+5/5 = 23
Be confident and loud in speaking to them. They just check your comm. tats all…
Finally i’m asked to wait for 3 weeks to get the result… However i have no confidence
personally gettin in… Pray for me !!!

INFOSYS PAPER ON 17th MARCH AT NEW DELHI
I am Pulkit Gupta, 6th semester studentof Information Technology branch of GPMCE
affiliated to IP university,Delhi. I gave infosys on campus test for freshers on 17th, 18th
March.2007, and cleared it. total 1500 students came from different colleges of IP univ
and finaaly 170 were selected out of 220 shortlisted for HR interview(very low
percentage for infy).the paper was tough especially english section.
Let me thank this site first for giving me a guidance and opportunity to get placed at
Infosys. To start with, let me tell u one thing. The selection procedure of Infosys (New
Pattern) is not that easy compared to previous pattern(quiz) and you have to work a little
harder(especially for english as it is totally CAT pattern and time management is the key
to crack infosys) to ensure that u r placed. More over, your luck also plays a major part.
Let me describe the selection procedure and my experiences. I think it might help you to
focus in a correct direction .
The Selection Procedure had three phases:
PPT presentation on INFOSYS made by the head of the HR recruiting team
Aptitude and Verbal Reasoning
HR Interview
In the morning (around 10 am), after the arrival, u will be exposed to a ppt presentation
on Infosys. I am sure that this will motivate enough to get placed at Infosys.
Next, we were allowed to disperse and we were allotted rooms for our test. After we are
settled in our rooms, we were given an application form to fill it up(if u have anyone in
infosys,write it as reference it may help you in HR). The instructions to fill the
application form will be announced prior. Be careful in filling those forms and provide
accurate statistical data of your marks as far as possible.

Next comes the Aptitude test. It was started at 11.50 am. The time limit for aps is 40 mins
within which u have to complete 30 q’s. The aptitude session consists of the following
sub groups.
A puzzle and 5 objectives based on the puzzle.
5 Problems on finding the next figure in the series.
5 Problems on data Sufficiency( Little tricky)
Data Interpretation: A bar graph was given and 5 questions followed it.(mine was an easy
one) but dont do it first, keep it for the end it takes time.
Once again a puzzle which is little tough as compared to the previous one with 5
questions followed it
Last 5 questions on logical arrangment.
1 puzzle was: Exam is to be held between Monday to sunday. There is 1 holiday in
between papers. 9 papers were: english, hindi, math, history, civics geography, biology,
physics, chemistry.
Conditions were:
1) exams will start either on sunday or wednesday with biology and no other paper will b
there on that day.
2) Geography paper can be followed by 1 other paper but not on Monday.
3) Hindi & English cannot be accompanied by others.
4) Saturday is a half day and sunday is after the holiday.
5) Number of papers before holiday is less than that after the holiday.
5 questions were there like:

a) Sunday b) Wednesday c) Monday d) Friday
ans: b) Wednesday
2) when is the holiday?
a) Sunday b) Friday c) Saturday d) Thursday

rest i dont remember but the sequence was like this
sol: Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday Monday Tuesday
biology history holiday English Hindi civics geography physics maths
chemistry
1 question i remember of data sufficiency was: i suggest do data suffiency from rs

on data sufficiency at the back of each chapter.

sorry friends i dont remember all questions as they were too long. After 40 mins they
collected the question paper for aps and gave us verbal(english) q paper. Here is where u
have to put more effort. The verbal part is very tough as compared to aptitude. If u are
strong at basic grammar (particularly tenses and phrases) u will have this cleared.
There will be 40 q’s which u have to finish in 30 mins. Time management is very much
essential here. The pattern of this question is:
2 Passages (R C) followed by 5 q’s each. The first one was easy( mine was on womens, i
didnt read it but it expressed the positive aspect of women, i answered on this basis only)
and the second one was little tough( i didnt even got the time to look at it, do not leave
any question attempt all) .
Selecting the correct option which is grammatically correct from the available four
options.
fill in the blanks type questions
Replacing the underline phrases with suitable ones( phrases were too long so were the
options, time consuming)
Deriving conclusion from small passages(tricky one).
For english, you can refer any CAT material like CL,ims etc. and prepare well for it, dont
take it lightly as it is the main eliminating section in written test, aptitude is easy. in our
case, 220 were shortlisted out of 1500 for interview n english section played a major part
int it).
Remember friends the preset cut-off of infy’s test is 15 out of 30 for aptitude and 20 out
of 40 for english and these dont vary with performance. If all students get more than 50%
in test, all are selected and if no one gets it, then no one is selected.
The tests are over by 1 pm. the results were be announced by 9.30 pm. There were 1500
students appeared for test and 220 were shortlisted for HR round which held next day.
HR round:
it is of 20 minutes per person on an average. Try to drive the interview to ur field of
interest(personal profile) to maximum time so that he gets less time to interview you as
they ask u to leave after 20 minutes sharp, they have a clock in front of them.
Prepare some questions in advance like:
1) your introduction. Finish the answer conciously on to ur field of interest as next
question will be from ur last line of the answer.
2) strengths and weakness. say the weakness that looks like your strength, dont say m
emotional, less patient,hot tempered. you may say that i become irritated when my
teammembers do not work efficiently. it looks like a strength.
3) role model. it would be great if u say ur father or mother as this reflects your honesty,
dont say person from the company like Mr. Murthy, it looks fake.
4) Hobbies. u should know everything about it like if u say reading then he may ask u
about todays headline or latest novels in market or anything related to reading.
Submit your resume to [email protected]
Page 372 of 377

5) your objective. dont repeat the line written in ur resume.twist it and then say.
6) 1 question about the company.
now i will tell my experience there were 15 panels from different colleges of Delhi
university(infy members dont take freshers interview).
I was allotted to a gent HR who was really experienced and may be english professor.
Confidence and smiling face is the key to clear HR round.
he asked me to fill the attendance sheet. I didnt wrote the time of my interview n then he
told me to write it as 1:25pm. then asked me wat is PM in 1:25 pm.i didnt knew. so
friends dont give him any chance to ask u such questions.
then he asked me about my reference( my brother in infosys). Then he asked me 2
puzzles. he asked me to find the volume of the sprite bottle kept there(300ml). it didnt
strike me and then he gave me various hints and then i said 300ml but i kept on trying,
smiled in between.
after that he gave me a puzzle:
FORTY
+TEN
+TEN
=S I X T Y
Find the value of each alphabet. i solved it. ans was N=0, e=5.
They just see if u are trying or not. Never say “i dont know” in the first place, just keep
trying and he will himself change the question after 2-3 minutes.
Then he asked me tat do I have any question? Aways ask some question never say i dont
have any and the question concerning the company. i asked why infosys has most of its
centres in south india only? the question should be such that reflects your concern
towards the company.
He answered me tat it is too early to concerned abt those issues and he commented that it
was a very good qn and he liked my attitude. Then he asked me to check my mails
regularly( which is an indirect sign tat I got placed). Then he wished me for my bright
future.. I came out with confidence.
The results were announced by 7pm. I was very happy to hear that I got selected. 170/220
were selected. They have a pattern, they were selecting 75% of students from each
college on an average.
So friends, The main thing is to belief in yourself and confidence. Use your innovative
and creative ideas and make sure tat it is exhibited. Be yourself and be confident and
smiling(thad important) and if your interview is not good then dont say it there, it goes in
ur negative, may be he liked u, so don’t break down till the end, show confidence. Hope
this will help you. See u at INFOSYS..

Two LINE GRAPHS were given & 5 quest based on this are given……Its little time
consuming and a bit tough also. practice R.S AGRAWAL DI questions of all types which

also attempted it last. Also if u are practicing well i advice u to use guess
work……………some ques . does not demand full calculations……….they can be solved
visually also……………….I make 2 of them by this method. Especially it works in line
graph type questions…………….
5) LOGICAL PUZZLE (5 QUESTIONS):-
Again a puzzle was there, but it was slightly lengthy……………

determine the right combination. Questions are based on these combinations. Similar
problems are given in R.S.AGRAWAL. You practice from there.
