to give a mail.waste fellows.There is no dynamism in their blood.I have

been waiting for the mail since three days.
Don't worry about telco.They will conduct interview and select

know that TCS is visiting our campus on 3rd.That's my first company.Akka

had sent a rakhi for me.You might be received the same.What is the news?

What else?

send mail after receiving all the papers.

new edition asthe pagenumbers i already sended to you.

ansers he changed slitely see.

From two fig 6 questions regarding the

swimmers,girls,tennisplayers,tall and

second one on politicians,graduates,parliament members, both questions

are same given so mugup and go to exam and place blindly i already

sended the page numbers in previous mail.

these are the correct ansers place it blindly.

the figure series which i had already send in the earlier paper is

same and one extra qestion is their it is this type

box type in side the box line and dot.

this type see in the new edition rs agerwal a box is their

in the answer so try for question in rs agerwal

see rs agerwal for statements and assemptions questions.

cut off will be around 30 out of 105 Bso place only the known problems


place only correct problems.

the above 35 questions aare enough to qualify.

remaining questions if know exact answers then place .

otherwise simply leave it.
5 mtechs got selected for int.& only one from chem. got the

job.Interview is personal.small software technical ques.about language.

(This is from IITM)


one to one negative marking is is tough to qualify unless u

know the paper.totally there are 105 questions. 70 min.

three flow sheets------ 10 min.

sections are quantitative(23),analytical(about 20) ,series&venn

diagrams,logical(20) questions from a passage (about 10). time span for

each section is different.sit at the back so that u can turn pages if u

want.different colored papers are used.

for flow sheets

first one is relatively easy

1.u will be given conditions like

if a wins he gets 100 pts,if b wins he gets 50 pts etc

2.there is flow sheet& there are empty cells(4) at "yes' or 'no"

decision points.

3.for each cell 4 choices will be given which should be chosen by

following through initial conditions &flow sheet logic.

4.rem. -ve marking is there. no verbal questions.

Programming Problems

1) Reversing a linked list. Given a linked list, reverse it. Input must be read from a file, "list.dat". It will just be a list of integers. The total number is not known. The program should create a linked list with the given numbers in the same order. Each node contains the value and a pointer to the next node of the list. Defining just TWO additional node pointers you must inverse the given list and print out the numbers in the list. NO OTHER VARIABLE of any type should be defined. Hence the output will be reverse of the input. eg. Input file reads, 3 1 4 2 Linked list will be, Head -> 3 -> 1 -> 4 -> 2 -> Null the the reversed list must be, Null <- 3 <- 1 <- 4 <- 2 <- Head So the output will be, 2,4,1,3.


Algo :
1) Reversing a linked list. Simple. Use two new pointer p, q and the head thats already available. Invert the first three nodes and keep iterating along the list. Else use recursion.


2) Koch curve

Write a code to generate the (nasent) Koch curve. A (nasent) koch curve is drawn iteratively. At any iteration the curve is a set of straight lines. In every iteration each line from the previous iteration is split into three parts and the middle part is replaced with two sides of the equilateral triangles in which the middle part is the third side. You start with a straight line ______. (0,0)-(90,0) In the next iteration you get four lines __/\__ (0,0)-(30,0), (30,0)-(45,15*sqrt(3)), (45,15*sqrt(3))-(60,0) and (60,0)-(90,0) In the next iteration you apply the same division tecnique to all the four line segemetns (0,0)-(30,0), (30,0)-(45,15*sqrt(3)), (45,15*sqrt(3))-(60,0) and (60,0)-(90,0). And so on... Generate the points after n iterations starting with (0,0)-(x,0) Input: one integer for the number of iterations, n and one float for x. n is typically 6 to 8 Output: All the points of the koch curve after n iterations must be written to a file, "koch.dat" in order from left to right. Use all float values. eg. n=1, x=90 0 0 30 0 45 25.98 60 0 90 0 Note: x and y co-ordinates come alternately. A point occurs on two adjusent lines but is printed only once.


Algo :
2) Koch Curve. Sraight forward mathematical calculations gives the intermediate points. Just add them to your data structure and keep iterating.


3) Enemies and boats.

A list of persons represented by numbers 1 to n are given along with their enemies in that list. You must group them into two boats such that no person is in the same boat with his enemy. Assume a solution exists. eg. 1's enemies 2,3 2's enemies 1 3's enemies (none) 4's enemies 3 5's enemies 4,1 The groups will be 1,4 2,3,5 Input: Input should be read from a file, "enemies.dat". First the number of persons in the list is given. Then the enemies for each person is given, terminated by a zero. eg. for the discussed case, input will read 5 2 3 0 1 0 0 3 0 1 4 0 note: Numbers between third and fourth zeros are four's enemies. Output: Output should be printed on the screen as two lines. First line is the list of people on boat one and the next line is for boat two.


Algo :
3) Enemies and boats. Many people gave different algorithms but most didn't work. One way of doing it is to put 1 in boat one, his enemies in boat two. See where 2 can be placed. If you have an inevitable option take it. Else try both option by recursion.


4) Euler's knight tour.

Do an Euler knight's tour. A knight starts at one of the squares of the chessboard and visits ALL the squares EXACTLY ONCE. Number the chessboard from 1 to 64 starting from one corner and traversing row wise. Start at square one and visit all the squares. Beware!! The brute force algorithm will burst out of memory! Output: Print out the number of the squares the knight visits in the order they are visited.


Algo :
4) Euler's knight tour. The algorithm we had in mind was back tracking when you hit a dead end. But we got a much better algo. Start a one corner. At every step try to go to a corner if not possible try to go to a edge, otherwise goto some point. More generally goto the sqaure with the minimum number of squares leading to it. This algo works terrifically and gives instantaneous results.


5) Cows and bulls.
