It is communication software company. It is best for a student if he/she wants to enter in communication software industry. There is good package rise in it.

1) Verbal section contains some easy questions like :

2) Aptitude section
contains mainly a set based questions….just go through the basic set formulas. There were around 5 questions from sets and also from general aptitude topics of RS Aggarwal book.

Identify the correct match


a) 1214422344245 b) 121442224245 c) 1214422343245

These type of much easier questions but must be done carefully because chances of errors are there.

4) Data Structures and OS

Here incomplete codes were given, using queues , trees, linked list etc and we were required to select the correct code from the options given, which will give the correct output.

From OS questions were from context switching, throughput…

And according to the company policy, goods can only b returned within 3 days of purchase. Thereafter no returns are accepted. So kindly write an email to Ms.Preeti that you can’t take goods back once sold after 3 days of purchase.
