 Regarding Hughes 
 paper they conducted two tests. Both were technical(no aptitude test). First one was compulsory for everybody. In second one could opt for electronics or computers. In all i suppose there were 50 questions. I sent a request to my classmates to send me questions whatevery they could recall. Till now only one person has responded. I am sending those questions to you.

And just before interview you were supposed to fill up a performa which they call Behavioural Test. This was to check you interpersonal skills and socialising capabilities. Questions like - would you like to be elected leaders of organising committees, do you like peoply express their agonies to you, do you wish people be close to you type questions were repeated in one and the other form. 

Interview was technical as well as personal. CGPA did count - it seems. They selected 8 people from here. BTW what s your current CGPA and what s the strength of your class. Do they come for B.Tech and M.Tech separatel as the case here is or it s all at once. 

 Questions : 

 1.If a precondition of a sub routine fails then 
 a. post condition fails as well 
b. Post condition may fail 
c. post condition is declared but now defined. 

 2. whatz the o/p of the following program 
char * a= "AabbCc"; 
void x(char *a) 

a[0] == 0 ? x(a+1):1; 
return 1; 

a. AaBbCc 
b. cCbBaA 

 3. What is DHCP used for? 

 4. There are 2protocols IP and IPX are running on top of Ethernet. Suppose a packet addressed to that ethernt card arrives, to which protocol the ethernet sends the packet?  

1. It checks the payload of the frame and finds out the protocol type and despatches it to the right protocol 

2. It fins out the protocol type that is mentioned in the ethernet frame. 

3. despatches to both the protocol 

5. What is the use of global static variable in C?
