CTS Latest Fresher Placement Paper (Aptitude), September 2010 | Chennai

Company Name :- CTS
Type :- Fresher Job Interview, Question Paper Write-up.
CENTRE:- Anand Institute Of Technology Chennai
Date :- 18th September 2010

Mine was a morning 7:45 batch. Around 150 were there in my batch. There were more batches on the same day so I am not sure about the total number of students who all attended that day.
The paper was conducted by MERITRACK and they said they would announce the result on this Tuesday that is on 21st September on CTS website.
When I started giving test I was really amazed, the pattern had completely changed.There were only 50 questions in all.

Written exam had two sections:- Verbal and Analytical.

 The paper was damn easy. This was my 12th interview so was bit nervous asusual.I can give you an idea on how the paper was but im sorry I can’t remember any questions.
1.) Verbal Section:-
There were questions like:-
A.) Two huge passages were given and there were 5 questions for each passage. I would recommend you to attempt these passages at the end.

B.) Around 5-6 questions on finding which part of the sentence had an error.

EX- He thought (a)/he might (b)/not be able (c)/to do a job (d)./
We had to find which part of the sentence had errors.

C.) Around 5-6 questions on arranging sentences in the order in which they might have occurred.

a) The third calls for high aces to channel updrafts.
b) Some paleontologists are of the opinion that the pterosaurs jumped from s dropped from trees or perhaps rose into the light winds from the crests of waves in       order to become airborne.
c) The second hypothesis seems unlikely because large pterosaurs could not have landed in trees without damaging their wings.
d) Each theory has its associated difficulties.
e)The first makes a wrong assumption that the pterosaurs hind feet resembled a bat's and could serve as hooks by which the animal could hang in preparation for flight.
              1) a,e,d,b,c
D.)Around 5-6 questions on finding the wrong sentence from a set of given sentences.

2.) Analytical Part:-
This part to my amazement dint have anything from RS Aggarwal quantitative aptitude. There we not even a single formal question from percentages or ratio proportions or ages anything u could ever imagine the whole paper was kind of non verbal reasoning.

The questions were like –
a.) Around 4-5 questions were like finding the odd figure out of given figures. VERY VERY SIMPLE.
b.) Around 4-5 questions were like three figures were given and we had to find the fourth one based on some pattern. Was a bit tough)
c.) I had some login problem in my system before beginning the test, so I was sitting idle for 15 mins in the beginning and at that time I was just gazing at the  systems of students who were giving the test. Many of them had a question based on pie chart. A pie chart was given and 5-6 questions were based the pie chart.
On the other hand when I started giving test I had a question based on a table. I had to take some percentages based on the given data. I didn’t get any questions from pie charts.
d.) Some 5-6 questions based on syllogism.EX-Some dogs are cats. All cats are cows.
e.) Around 5-6 question were based on logic like – If it rains, then he will dance. These questions were in the form of data sufficiency.
This is all I can remember. Make sure you prepare from RS Aggarwal Verbal and Non Verbal reasoning very thoroughly. Be very calm and take the paper very carefully because it full of logical questions, you need to have a free mind while giving the test.Im still waiting for the results that are to be announced on 21st September on www.congnizant.com and i am really very very scared. Please do pray for me.

Take care all.
