10.array containingstring is( group of characters ending with /0)
11.Sorry friends i remember ony these but all were repeated just learn basics regarding apti it wAS only 5(avg,time n work,venn dia type)......1 logical reasonong question........1 data interpretation very very easy....english was a bit tough since there is no sectional cut problrm........all the best friends.....

Technical interview will be in ther field of interest only......
