## TCS Aptitude Interview Questions & Answers

1. Question 1. There Are Two Water Tanks A And B, A Is Much Smaller Than B. While Water Fills At The Rate Of 1 Liter Every Hour In A, It Gets Filled Up Like, 10, 20, 40,80, 160..in Tank B. 1/8 Th Of The Tank B Is Filled In 22 Hours. What Is The Time To Fill The Tank Fully?

Tank B is filled in geometric progression, so after 22 hrs water in tank will be = 10 * 2^21 = x/8

where x = volume of tank x = 10 * 2^24 thus by geometric progression we get that n-1 = 24

so n = 25, hence time required is  25 hrs.

2. Question 2. A Train Passes A Station Platform In 36 Seconds And A Man Standing On The Platform In 20 Seconds. If The Speed Of The Train Is 54 Km/hr, What Is The Length Of The Platform?

Speed = 54 x5/18 m/sec = 15 m/sec.

Length of the train = (15 x 20)m = 300 m.

Let the length of the platform be x metres.

Then,x + 300/36 = 15

x + 300 = 540

x = 240 m.

4. Question 3. 12 People {a1, A2, A12} Meet And Shake Hands In A Circular Fashion. In Other Words, There Are Totally 36 Handshakes Involving The Pairs, {a1, A2}, {a2, A3}, {a11, A12}, {a12, A1}. Then Size Of The Smallest Set Of People Such That The Rest Have Shaken Hands With At Least One Person In The Set Is?

5. Question 4. A Boat Can Travel With A Speed Of 13 Km/hr In Still Water. If The Speed Of The Stream Is 4 Km/hr, Find The Time Taken By The Boat To Go 68 Km Downstream.

Speed downstream = (13 + 4) km/hr = 17 km/hr.

Time taken to travel 68 km downstream = (68/17)hrs = 4 hrs.

Here, S = {1, 2, 3, 4, …., 19, 20}.

Let E = event of getting a multiple of 3 or 5 = {3, 6 , 9, 12, 15, 18, 5, 10, 20}.

P(E) =n(E)/n(S)=9/20

8. Question 6. How Many Four Digit Numbers Can Be Formed Using The Digits 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 (but With Repetition) That Are Divisible By 4? Can You Help Alok Find The Answer ?

1= 5^4-1=125, n= no of digits

1 2

2 4

3 2

4 4

5 2

The first two digits in the place can be filled in 5 x 5 ways.

9. Question 7. The Age Of The Two Friends Were In The Ration Of 6:5.if The Sum Of Their Ages Is 66.then After How Many Years Their Ratio Will Become 7:6 ?

Let the age of two friends be 6x and 5x

Sum of their ages 66 => 6x + 5x = 66 => 11x = 66 => x=6

The ages will be 36 and 30

(36+k)/(30+k) = 7/6 => 36 x 6 + 6k = 210 + 7k

216 + 6k = 210 + 7k => 6 = k

After 6 years their ages will be in the ratio 7:6

10. Wipro Aptitude Interview Questions

11. Question 8. The Age Of The Two Friends Were In The Ratio Of 2:3.if The Sum Of Their Ages Is 55.then After How Many Years Their Ratio Will Become 4:5 ?

Let the age be the friends be 2x and 3x. Sum of their ages = 55

2x + 3x = 55 => 5x=55 => x=11

Their ages are 22 and 33

After k years both of them will be 22+k and 33+k years old

Ratio of their age at that time will me 4:5

(22+k)/(33+k)=4/5

5(22+k)=4(33+4) => 110 + 5k = 132+4k

K=132-110 = 22

12. Question 9. A Person Is Manufacturing A House. He Bought 20 Ropes Of Wire Which Has A Density Of 300 Kg/m3.the Height Of The Building To Be Constructed Is 40 M. If The Capacity Of The Current Passed In The Wire Is 20 A And The Voltage Capacity Is 80 Volts.then What Will Be The Opposing Force To The Current If The Wire Is Used ?

Explanation:

by ohms law

v = ir

so r = v/i

so r = 80/20 = 4

31. Question 21. In A Building There Are 5 Rooms. Each Having A Equal Area .the Length Of The Room Is 4m And Bread Ht Is 5 M.the Height Of The Rooms Are 2m.if 17 Bricks Are Needed To Make A Square Meter Then How Many Bricks Are Needed To Make The Floor Of A Particular Room?

Dimensions = 4 x 5 x 2

TSA = 2 (4 x 5 + 5 x 2 + 4 x 2) = 2(20+10+8)=2×38 =  76 sq m

35. Question 24. If A Pipe Can Fill The Tank Within 6hrs. But Due To Leak It Takes 30 Min More.now The Tank Is Full Then How Much Time Will It Take To Empty The Tank Throught The Leak.?

Let the capacity of the tank be 6 litre.

Then time to fill this tank is 6 hour ,when there is no leakage .

so in 1 hour it fills 1 litre.

when leakage is there then it takes 6.5 hour to fill 6 litre

so in 1 hour it fills 6/6.5 litre.

Time to vacate will be 1-(6/6.5) = 1/13 litre in 1 hour

time to vacate 1 litre will be 13 hour.

For 6 litre it will be 13*6 =78

37. Question 25. The Bacteria Has The Probability Of Split Into 3 And Probability To Die Is 1/3rd Of The Total Bacteria.let The Probability Is P. Some Of Them Survived With Probability 1/5.then Which Among The Following Relation Is True ?

Probability for the bacteria to be dying = 1/3

Hence probability of survival = 1/5

if they survive, they will be split into 3 more bacteria hence, p = (1/3) + (3* 1/5)

38. Question 26. There Is A Bacteria Which Has The Probability Of Die 1/3 Of Its Total Number Or It May Tripled. Find Out The Probability ?

Probability of bacteria to die is 1/3

or its get tripled, hence the probability of getting tripled is (2/3)*p*p*p that is  (2/3)*p^3

so both the probability combined as P=1/3+(2/3*p^3)

41. Question 28. One Grand Father Has 3 Grand Children Two Of The Age Difference Is 3.eldest Child Age Is 3 Times The Youngest Childs Age And The Eldest Child Age Is Two Year More Than The Sum Of Other Two Children. Find What Is The Age Of The Elders Child ?

Let the age of eldest child is E , that of elder child is M and that of youngest child is Y, then according to the given conditions

E = 3Y  (1) and  E = 2 + M + Y  (2)

Third condition is somewhat complicated, according to this condition two of the age difference is 3 so three cases will arise

1) E – M = 3, ……(3)

2) M – Y = 3, ……(4)

3) E – Y = 3, ……(5)

if we take first of the 3 conditions then on solving (1), (2) and (3) we will get E = 3, M = 0, Y = 1 which is wrong now on solving (1), (2) and (4) we will get E = 15, M = 8, Y = 5

similarity on solving (1), (2) and (5) we will get E = 4.5, M = 1, Y = 1.5

only E = 15, M = 8, Y = 5 is correct so age of elder child is 8 years.
