### HCL aptitude placement paper.

Hi Everyone,

HCL conducted a walk in recruitment test some days back. I also participated in it along with 3 of my frineds. One of my friends actually made it through. Here are some of the quantitative aptitude questions that were there in the paper. They weren't very tough but somehow I could not make through for the lack of preparation. May be they will help some of you out there.
