Pattern: (No multiple choice Qns)
--------

4 Sections.

1.Analytical Reasoning (12 qns.)
================================
(we have to write reasons for the answer.)

( I don't remember exactly what they had given.I am
putting it in my own words)

1) x1 peach + y1 plum = z1 apple
x2 peach + y2 plum = z2 apple
(x1,y1 .... z2 are integer values)
How many peaches make one apple?

2) 100,100,102,106,112,120,____

3) which is greater ?
Product of all Bradman's first class scores or Sum
of all test scores of Sachin.

4) U r provided with 500ml and 300ml jar(it has no
markings).
a) u have to measure exactly 100ml.
b) u have to measure exactly 200ml.

5) Using four 4's u have to make 1 ... 10.
( for eg. 1 = (4/4)*(4/4)
2 = ?

10 = ? )

6) student,canopy,thirst,... are the words given.
u have to group the words using the following words

1)Master
2)Teacher
3)Deft
etc..(i don't remember some of words)

7) U have to cut a Pizza using 7 st. lines(wit out
rearranging) and u have to obtain maximum number of
pieces.

( Give generalised solution..)

8) U have to cut a Cylindrical cake of diameter 32 cm
and height 20 cm in to 12 equal pieces.

9) In a village there r 2 groups.

1) Knight -> always tell true
2) Knave -> always tell false

Mr.X met a man of that village(u don't which grp he
belongs) and questioned "Tell me whether u r knight
or knave ?"

Reply: "i cannot tell u and left that place"

Find which grp that man belongs to?

10) obtain 277 from 3,25,50,65,100.use 4 arithmetic
operations only.

11) 1#2=x ,2#3=y, 4#4=z

4@14=a, 5@15=b, d@e=f

( i don't remember values for x,y,z,a,b,c,d,e,f)

find (2#4)@5= ?

12) (i don't remember what they had given.)
It is just example for that question,

CODE is encoded as DGBF

2. Essay(General).
==================
(Topic given: India should spend money on Atom bomb
and Rocket OR for the welfare of poor.)

3. Problem solving.
===================
(Problem statement: How will u determine number of

4. Programming.(4 Qns)
===============
( we can use any Programming Language for coding)

a) They had given one function ,we have to find it
what it does and also problem in the fn. and how to
overcome it.

double what( double z, int y)

while( y > 0 )

if( y%2 == 1)
y=y/2;
z=z*z;

b) They had given one Pseudocode.We have to find bug
in the pseudocode.

I don't remeber the pseudocode fully.But the
function of pseudocode is
"To make a Robot to fetch a tumbler of water"

c) write a program to print all Armstrong numbers,
(abc=a^3+b^3+c^3)
(for eg. 153=1^3+5^3+3^3)
d) write a function witj the following conditions,
1)It should have one integer parameter.
2)If the value passed is -ve, return -1.
3)If the value passed is a perfect square, return
root of that number.
4)If the value passed is a not a perfect square,
return that number itself.

DATE OF TEST : 2004
------------------------------------------------------------

Virtusa Paper consists of 3 sections .
1. Analytical
2. Analytical Writing
3. C-Programming

First when v clear the cutoff of Analytical
section,only then other
sections
r evaluated.So,Don't waste time by spending much time
on Programming.

Analytical Section:
-------------------

Analytical Section consists of Vocab. ( pick the odd
one out ) and
also
some codings like ( ALPHA z coded as BETAH , DELTA z
coded as GAMMA,
then how z
ETA coded ? .. this one .. i have framed it :) ) .
This part z a bit
difficult one.

Along with above two categories, there shall be
PUZZLES in this
section.In the
recent paper i attended,i got the following
questions.

1.Volume of a LARGE SPHERE z ( pi * # ) .Area of it z
( pi * & ) where
'#,&' r four digit
integers.What z the value of the radius ? ( Along
have to write
approach).

2.In howmany ways can a rectangle can be cut into 4
equal parts.

3.Given 1,2,3,25,50,75 and 100 .. Using each number
"one and only
once" and using
arithmetic operators, write 383 in terms of the
above given numbers.

answer: 383 = ( 100 + 2 ) * 3 + 75 + ( (50 * 1)/2 )

4.A tougher question of above. given 1,2,25,50,75,100
.. write 383 in
terms of the given
numbers.

5.Given following sequence,find the how the sequence
is generated.
2 -> 1,4,9,6,5,6,9,4,1,0
3 -> 1,8,7,4,5,6,3,2,9,0
4 -> 1,6,1,6,5,6,1,6,1,0

answer : the sequences r nothing but the UNIT digits
of
square(x),cube(x),power4(x) where
x = [ 1 ... 10 ]

6.Knights always tell TRUTH.Knaves always tell LIE.U
r a foreigner to
that place and
U have met a person and he replies "I am a knave " .
What can u infer
from his
statement.

answer : nothing can be infered from his statement.

7. using 4 fours and arithmetic operations
write from 1 to 10

3 = ( 4 + 4 + 4 ) / 4

4 = ( 4 - 4 ) * 4 + 4

5 = ( 4 * 4 + 4 ) / 4

6 = 4 + ( 4 + 4 )/4 // 4 + 2

7 = ( 4 + 4 ) - ( 4 / 4 )

8 = ( 4 + 4 ) * ( 4 / 4 )

9 = ( 4 + 4 ) + ( 4 / 4 )

10 = ( 44 - 4 ) / 4

I forget the two more questions.

Analytical Writing :
------------------

This section has two questions only.

1.General topic. ( Don't forget that v have to just
write one page
only .. not an essay)
( So,write the points directly )

For us they gave topics

Is it necessary for to HOST AFROASIAN GAMES ?? Why
can't it spend
that money
for the welfare of poor ?

OR

Can India have better results if the current for of
govt. is changed
to
PRESEDENTIAL FORM OF GOVT. ( like USA ) .

2.He gives a highly impossible possible and asks to
give a solution.(
To check ur
innovative ideas :) )

For us,

Suppose u have suddenly changed to an ANT.U know
human's
abilities,but u have
forgot their language.How can u make urself to
convey ur BELOVED that
u have
been changed to an ANT.

Programming :
-------------

This section consists of 4 questions.Out of 4, for 3
questions v have
to write
code.The last question shall be .. they shall give
some code and v
have to write whether
the code is correct one r not .. if not correct ,
where the
modifications show be done.
and also v have to write what that CODE IS DOING.
