CTS Placement Papers-2

Total attended = 1,333

Cleared Written = 238

Selected = 28(15 boys 13 girls)

It was a shock that they selected only 28 from 1,333 and I’m really happy tat I am one among that few.

Two Rounds:

1.Written test.

2.Interview. (Tech n HR)

The Merit Track conducted the test. It was organized perfectly and they expect discipline from us.. Before the test u have to fill a form. Do it carefully because some of my friends got questions 4m tat.

1.Software Orientation:
2.Hobbies and extra-curricular activities
3.Strengths and Weakness
4.Expectation from CTS
5.Why CTS
6. Long term and short-term goal with CTS
7.What are the qualities necessary for software professional to be successful


1.Analytical Ability (25 Q, 30 Minutes)
Venn diagram questions
Data sufficiency
coding 1 represented as $ and 0 as *(easy.. jus convert it into Binary)
Cubes related questions are very important

My suggestion is do Coding First. Then Venn dig. Cube problem n others..u can surely score full marks fm coding n venn dig…cube is also easy when u understand it.For cube take the cubic root of the no of pieces.64 means 4(keep as x value)..then 2 side painted means 12*(x-2).1side painted means 6*(x-2) 2 . (horizontal n vertical) like wise u must think n apply according to the question..

1.venn dig- people hving dif heights 6feet ,6’6 feet, 5’5 feet.and questions like no of people who is 6 of people who is 5’5feet…..

2.In codin there will be only normal arithmetic operations n L.c.m..i don remember them.

For ex..64/4= 16 = $****.first solve it n convert it to binary..

3.Cube- a cube of 12 cm is cut into small 3cm pieces..then place another 4 small cubes over it..and another 2 small cubes over the 4cubes..then again one more cube over the 2 cube…the cube is then painted from top to bottom

12/3=4…so 4row 4column…draw a dig of cube first. Imagining the cube only help u to solve rather than formulas. How many cubes r painted on only one side?

how many cubes r painted on only 2 sides?

how many cubes r painted on only 3 sides?

how many cubes r painted on only 4 sides?

how many cubes r painted 0 sides?

(my friends told me tat cube problems hav more marks than other questions)

2.Verbal Ability (20 Q, 20 Min)


Find out the incorrect sentence
Find out the correct sentence
Jumbled Passages
-Don prepare any thing for this ..It won help u..Jumbled sent n correct incorrect sent are a little depends on ur grammer n English language skills. do the comprehension last(it is a very big passage..i didn’t even read it ,jus time)

3.Attention Details (20 Q, 20 Min)

Find the odd man out
Analogy of figures (Simple)


Very easy compared to other sections..any one can crack it with out any preparation..If u think to prepare jus go through puzzle test n syllogism from R.S.Agarwal Verbal reasoning

Analogy of figures –Non verbal Reasoning
