No.of students selected for satyam : 417

The recruitment process are of 2 stages

In written test the questions are 15 and duration is 30 min. the aptitude questions are easier than logical reasoning.
Topics
1.probability(1ques)
2.time & work (2 ques)
3.c programming (1 ques)
4.Series(1 ques)
5.simple interest & compound interest(1 ques)
6.profit & loss( 1ques)
7.percentage (1ques)
8.paragraph conclusions(3 ques)
9 Data sufficiency (1quees)
10 logical reasoning (3 ques)

There is 1/4th negative marking in written test. It doesnâ€™t have sectional cutoff but it have both lower cutoff. And higher cutoff, so we should concentrate on these cutoff. In my point of view the best cutoff is 6-10. it may varies with different papers.

the questions was entirely different 4m the earlier year which had been posted here ,so make sure that u r well prepared

T3=T2*4
T4=T3+7
T5=T4*2
print T1+T2+T3+T4+Tt5
if T<3 goto again Ques:6 series 110, 120 243 255 ?
