2. How can u place 4 coins in 2 lines so that each line should contain 3 coins Ans:I wrote, it maynot be possible

3 Find the odd word

ALPHA

DELTA

SIGMA

BETA

Ans:I think it is Delta, Reason: as it has specific meaning(addition)and others don't have such meaning,just used

for representation purpose.(i think so)

4. There was an addition given as follows

SATURN + URANUS = PLANETS

5. There was a set of words given as follows

SUN,MER,VEN,---,...........,SAT,---,NEP,PLU

(I don't remember exactly but, all are the names of planets in solar system with notation of each planet

using 3 letters) The question was to find out the appropriate words in the given blanks

6. How can u get 81 using the digits 2,3,25,50,75,100 only once using any of the arithmatic operators

Key Steps: 50+(100/75*3)+25+2

7. (This is a real sitter, takes a long time) A man have some three types boxes viz Huge,Large,Small He took 11

of huge boxes and put on a table.And at random he has taken some of them and placed 8 large boxes in each

of the boxes.And after that he has placed 8 small boxes in some large boxes at random.By the end if he found

102 boxes empty, how many boxes are there on the table?

8. If u have a large number of Knights and a chess board.The problem is to find the way of arranging the Knights on

the board so that no Knight attacks the other. (He has given mathematical relations that represents how a knight

can move on the chess board as we know it as 'L', i'm not giving such stuff)

VIRTUSA PAPER ON 2nd DECEMBER AT HYDERABAD

Hi frnds,

I am Muni Sekhar from Sullurpet(Nellore Dt,AP). I am working in virtusa from 18th Dec 06. I would like to share my selection process experience at virtusa with u.

I received hall ticket through e-mail from virtusa on 1st Dec afternoon and asked me to attend for the written test on the next day. I came immediately to Hyd from my home town and i directly went to westly school (near paradise,hyd) from secunderabad rly stn. Then i came to know that Merit Trac people are conducting this exam. And 2000+ members attended the exam (only B.Tech CSE, B.Tech CSIT, MCA) The merit trac people will check the 10th,Intermediate,UG/PG certificates and then allow to the examination hall

The paper is about 2 and a half hour. It is for 120 marks. It has 5 sections in written exam itself.

It will have Verbal Ability, Apptitude, Mental & logical thinking Ability, Technical Qns (C,Unix), Reading(Grasping) Ability. and the cutoff for the examnination is 65 marks i think.

In verbal ability::::::: They will give synonyms, antonyms, words( articles), correct the sentense's & paragraph's etc.

In Apptitude:::::::::::: They will give easy qns. It will be easy if we are thorough with RSAgarwal

In Mental Ability::::::::They will try to confuse us, but if we r cool minded, we can do well

In Technical Ability::::: Unnecessary code will be given to waste time, do small things first and go for huge codes and it will be easy as C,Unix will be in this round. But this round has more weightage/marks. So concentrate on this round.

In Reading ability::::: we will be given a 3 page material and 10 minutes time to read that.The time they will give for this round will not be sufficient, even though we have to do that. Then afterwards, they will take the material and give us 10 qns on that material, we have to ans those qns by rememberence.

Then after the exam, they told us that the results will be announced on monday(4th Dec) for the people who are selected and for the people who are not selected also. But i didnt receive any mail from them on monday, tuesday. Then on tuesday night i planned to go back to my native place within 2 days. On wednesday morning i received a mail asking to attend the further selection process of virtusa. Please remember your roll number for the test.

I attended Group Discussion (Topic::: Should we ban mobile phones in school,colleges) and did well. I started the discussion, did well (used all the GD tips,managerial skills etc)and ended it. Then I attended the Technical round. It is two panel(male and female), male is Sr S/w Engg(SSE) and female is QA(Testing) lead(QAL).

The first qns to me was "Tell me about yourself" (Routine qns any where) I answered it. Then the SSE asked me to write a prog. I did it Then QAL asked me to explain few logics, i explained one logic in routine way and the second logic in a different way. Then they asked me to explain the logic elaboratedly. I explained it very well. then they got good imppression on me( i think).

Then they asked me few qns on C, oops concets etc and then the QAL asked me abt white box,black box testing etc related to testing. i said that i dont know any thing abt testing. She asked me like this.....

QAL:: If there are opening only in QA and if u were asked to join, Will u join QA?

Me:: I said yes (because i want a job, either development/QA)

QAL:: u dont know any thing abt testing and u are very well performing in languages etc, then will u be able to learn the things so quickly in the training progs and can u deleiver us the expected results??

ME:: yes, surely. As i said u, one among my strenghts are "fast learning ability". i can learn well in training and will do well further also.

QAL:: ok fine, after one and a half year, if u are given flexibility to move towards development, will u move or be in QA itself

Me: If that flexibility is given, i will move to development

QAL:: In this 1 and a half year u will be doing well in QA and u may be lagging in developmenta na? then how will u be able 2 do well in development?

Me:: (I said a small ex, like this... i showed the door beside me and said like this..) Theif will unlock the door without exact key. and if that thief is given a chance to prepare the lock and key, he will do it perfectly in such a way that, no other theif can unlock it. Just like that if a tester comes to development and writes a code, the code will be in such a way that no other tester can find any bugs in it. So that way i can be a good developer, even though i ma with 1.5 yrs expereienced in testing and away from development.

QAL,SSE::: ok thats really great ans.

QAL:: Do u have any qns to us?

Me:: i asked a small qns regarding hyd virtusa center (bcoz, we have ask qns, when we are given a chance.That will say that we are eager to know things when we got a chance)

QAL:: replied.

Then after an hour they asked me to fill some buch of papers

Then i attended HR interview. It is one panel only

1st qns: HR(He is PM itseams):: Tell me abt yourself

Me:: (i said)

HR:: (he noted down the extracurricular, achievements, my web sites URL etc etc in the bunch of papers, according to the columns in it, by moving on to page to page)

2nd qns: HR::What is your career objective?

Me:: (I said)

3rd qns: HR:: Do u have any qns to me?

Me:: Sir, how is my performance till now?

HR:: Well.......U've got selected man. (offered shake hand)

Me:: Thank you sir (Shake hand)

Then the Associate HR Exceutive came to me and asked me to collect my offer letter on 15th and on 15th i was asked to join on 18th.

totally out of 2000+ candidates, 100 to 110 are selected in written exam, out of them 63 are finally selected and we are now in training. From 18th Dec to 18th Jan we 63 are trained on c++,unix,dbms,SE (induction classes, entertainment classes in between, lot of fun, games etc etc)and on jan 18th we 63 are divided into Java, .Net,QA streams. now the training will be upto march ending ( I think).

So to say abt virtusa... It is great to be here. we have good work culture, good package, good take homes, quarterly paries etc etc, we celebrate our colleuges B'days etc and have fun all the time.

With Cheers......

Muni Sekhar.

Virtusa pattern

COMPANY NAME : VIRTUSA

DATE OF TEST : 2004

For Virtusa the paper patteren is of four sections.

1.Logical reasoning(LR)

2.problem solving (1 question)

3.Essay on a general topic

4.Programming

Logical reasoning and programming are most important. If u do well

in these sections ur selected.

LR has a minimum cutoff u should clear that to evaluate ur other sections. In LR u r also required to provide the reason for the answer

u select. Try basic logical questions for prep.

In progg we had 5 questions to write the program. Do well in this section. Don't worry about 2 & 3 sections. Spend max time on 1 & 4.

After test we had GD which doesn't count much but becomes the basic impression for HR interview. HR is important.

Technical interview asked all about the programs written in test.And also they ask u to optimize the program.

If u done HR well and had good progg skills u will get selected.

looked like a fibonacci generating sequence.

Virtusa placement paper 3

COMPANY NAME : VIRTUSA

DATE OF TEST : 2003

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.

So, my advice z don't think much about these.

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 with answer , v

have to write

approach).

answer: may be 22

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.

Virtusa placement paper 2

SECTION 1 (Analytical and Logical)

1.1 2 3 2 5 6 7 8 3 find the next term in the series

Ans:

Reason:

2.How can u place 4 coins in 2 lines so that each line

should contain 3 coins

Ans:I wrote, it maynot be possible

3.Find the odd word

ALPHA

DELTA

SIGMA

BETA

Ans:I think it is Delta,

Reason: as it has specific meaning(addition)and others

don't have such meaning,just used for representation

purpose.(i think so)

4.There was an addition given as follows

SATURN + URANUS = PLANETS

the solution is not encoding the entire problem but to

find coding for 3 alphabets

Ans:

Key Steps:

5.There was a set of words given as follows

SUN,MER,VEN,---,...........,SAT,---,NEP,PLU

(I don't remember exactly but, all are the names of

planets in solar system with notation of each planet

using 3 letters)

The question was to find out the appropriate words in

the given blanks

Ans:

Reason:

6.How can u get 81 using the digits 2,3,25,50,75,100

only once using any of the arithmatic operators

Key Steps: 50+(100/75*3)+25+2

7.(This is a real sitter, takes a long time)

A man have some three types boxes viz Huge,Large,Small

He took 11 of huge boxes and put on a table.And at

random he has taken some of them and placed 8 large

boxes in each of the boxes.And after that he has

placed 8 small boxes in some large boxes at random.By

the end if he found 102 boxes empty, how many boxes

are there on the table?

Ans:

Key Steps:

8.If u have a large number of Knights and a chess

board.The problem is to find the way of arranging the

Knights on the board so that no Knight attacks the

other.

(He has given mathematical relations that represents

how a knight can move on the chess board as we know it

as 'L', i'm not giving such stuff)

Ans:

Key Steps:

9.You are given a bunch of threads each having

differing length.No two thereads have same thickness

and no thread has same thickness all its length. But

it is certified that any thread when lit burns itself

in exactly 12 mins.

The question is you are asked to find an elapsed time

of 9 minuites.How can u find it out and how

manythreads do u want for this?

Ans:

Key Steps:

(I think most of the questions are covered here. But

there may be a couple of questions left which i can't

remember in this Analytical and logical reasoning, OK)

SECTION 2 (Writing)

The topic to Write was on "Connecting the rivers in

India".

SECTION 3

You can write the programs in this section using any

programing language

3.1)

1.There was a pyramid given as follows

1

2 3

4 5 6

7 8 9 10

11 12 13 ...

The three dots are given as a part of the

specification.

The above pyramid is to be printed when input number

13 is given.

Write a program to print the above pyramid.

2.Write a function which returns a substring in the

string 'Sigma' (character given)which starts with

'Alpha' and ends with 'Thita'

3.You have a job in which you have to take time stamps

and store them.

So Write a datastructure that can minimize the storage

requirements of Year,Month,Date,Hour,Minuite.

4.Write a program to find the four digited numbers,

which are perfect squares, and all the digits in that

number are even.

(i think there is another program given which i don't

remember)

3.2) THIS CARRIES 15 MARKS

The types of problems such as prob #4 from the section

1, (SATURN+URANUS=PLANETS) are called cryptorithms or

alphabeticalcoding.

Where an alphabet is assigned a code so that the

problem is to be solved using given summation.

Write a program to solve such questions, which prints

the letter and its corresponding digit that satisfies

the given addition.
