A passage on USB was given. It was talked
from howstuffworks.com. As I was having good knowledge of USB, I did 8 of 10
questions without having a look on passage and rest 2 were also easily answered.

even reading it.
SECTION 5 -- TECH (They gave choice

I selected C as there was no added benefit
for taking the tough paper. 20 questions in 20 mins. Questions were of
Though some were very easy but around 10
of them were like that you can't apply general rules to them. You should be
aware of what happens in that particular case.
SECTION 6 -- E-Mail writing
You are tech executive of a telecom
company. You are known for your excellent customer services. One customer has
written that ha is facing problems. He also wrote earlier and got no response.
Write an email to him apologizing for that and offering him support.
Tech Interview - 1
It was for 1 hour and 1 mins. At the very
beginning he gave me 12 C questions and asked me to write the output. Meanwhile
He asked me other topic pf my interest. I said networking. As I did 11 correct
he delayed the discussion of the wrong answered question to last. He jumped to
Networking. What I noticed was that the more you tell them, the more they will
go to depth. For my case, He asked the difference between Hubs, Switches,
Routers. Also gave 12 protocols and asked me to match them to OSI Model. Then he
asked the in depth working of IP, ARP, RARP. Then he asked the in depth
processing when you have got a new computer and what happens when you try to
contact yahoo.com. In depth means that getting IP from DHCP then working of
DHCP, how all 7 layers are involved, then how frame moves to router. He even
jumped to routing protocols and there working.
I don't know why he went to so depth with
me. Others were limited to C. But that was a must. (1h, 15mins)
Tech Interview - 2
He again asked networking but with much
more depth. They were having excellent co-ordinations. The second tech
interviewer was having even the rough sheets of mine from 1st tech interview.
May be he wanted to test depth of knowledge. I answered first 2 questions and
then he asked me 4 terms that I never heard. I said I don't know. Then he asked
me to write 2 programs. in C
1. There are arranged no.s from 1 to 10 in
an array and 1 number is replaced by 0. Find it.
2. Use bit wise operators to find whether
a number is power of 2 or not?
