Re: Previous years placement papers for TCS exam? Where can I study the Synonyms?
dear friend,
T.C.S. asked generally much less verbal portion in their aptitude section. You can go through different newspaper and different books like : G.R.E. by Barron The book mentioned above is very much important for Synonymous. all the best.

quantitative aptitude logical reasoning verbal As per the recent written test most of the companies do not have the verbal section.Even if it present the weightage is much less. Some of the main topics in the quant as well as the logical reasoning are: averages profit and loss simple and compound interest partnerships time and distance time and work seating arrangement permutations and combinations ages number series QUANTITATIVE APTITUDE by R.S.Agarwal Logical Reasoning by R.S.Agarwal are some preferred books For verbal section Barron's preferred

what is the age of X n Y together? Ans: answer lies in considering two statements 2gether i.e "X is 3 years younger to Y" n "After 5 years the ratio of ages of X n Y is 1:2" 2. analogy ques: People: democracy ::wealth: X.....X is a)oligarchy b)anarchy c)monarchy d)democracy Ans: A 3. There was a scientist who after doing research , found that color of skin of animals vary with change in distance.One day he started to chase a beer .He walked 1 mile towards north , then turned and walked 1 mile towards east and then caught the beer and radioribboned the beerThen he left the beer at that spot and returned to his basestation taking a turn towards south (walked 1 mile towards south).Then what was the color of beer at that spot? a)white b)brown c)black d)grey Ans: white 4. 6 persons standing in queue with different age group, after two years their average age will be 43 and seventh person joined with them. hence the current average age has become 45. find the age of seventh person? Solution: Here the question appear as an easy one, but carried a lot of unwanted sentences and unwanted datas(i dint mention above) in exam which may confuse u on solving technique. Let x be current average age of first 6 persons in queue and current age of seventh person be y. Then 6x will become the sum of those 6 persons age. Now, let compute the sum of those 6 persons after two years, 6x+12 (as each and individual increase their age by 2). hence its average become (6x+12)/6 = 43 (give in question itself). So now we can compute x from above equation. (x = 41, 6x = 246) Let now we compute y, ((6x+y)/7) = 45, as we have value of x, compute y. Ans: 69 5. Horse started to chase dog as it relieved stable two hrs ago. And horse started to ran with average speed 22km/hr, horse crossed 10 mts road and two small pounds with depth 3m, and it crossed two small street with 200 mts length. After traveling 6 hrs, 2hrs after sunset it got dog. compute the speed of dog? Ans: As we have speed and travel time of horse, we can get distance travelled by it... Hence d = 22*6 = 132km, Exactly this 132km was travelled by dog in 8 hours (as it started two hours earlier). Hence speed of dog = 132/8 = 16.5km/hr Ans:16.5km/hr. 6. 3, 22 , 7, 45, 15, ? , 31 Solution: Here it appear simple, because it arranged in arranged in sequence manner, but the actual question was some what twist mentioning fibonacci series and more over question was in statements (no numbers).. hence first try to understand the question well. here let group alternate terms 3,7,15,31 (3+4 =7, 7+8 =15, 15+16=31) Similarly for second group (22,45,? (22+23 = 45, 45+46 = 91) hence ans is 91. 7. In Tnagar many buildings were under residential category.for buildings they number as 1 to 100.

((4x+3y)+(5x+9y))/(5x+5y) = ? as (x/2y) = 2 Ans: 2(simple algebra, i think u no need of explanation) 7: If we subract a number with y, we get 4 increase of number, once it got divided by y itself.. Find that number?? Ans: 12 (we can easily predict from options, as we take y as 6) 8. Jumbled letters, parakeet(answer) Ans: bird(category) 10. one question like. (209*144)^2 + (209*209)+(209*144)+(144*144) = ? Ans: here you can use calc, many(4 to 5) questions were depend upon calc alone.(no need problem solving technique). 11. Im only son for my parents.

Solution: Here the question appear as an easy one, but carried a lot of unwanted sentences and unwanted datas(i dint mention above) in exam which may confuse u on solving technique. Let x be current average age of first 6 persons in queue and current age of seventh person be y. Then 6x will become the sum of those 6 persons age. Now, let compute the sum of those 6 persons after two years, 6x+12 (as each and individual increase their age by 2). hence its average become (6x+12)/6 = 43 (give in question itself). So now we can compute x from above equation. (x = 41, 6x = 246) Let now we compute y, ((6x+y)/7) = 45, as we have value of x, compute y. Ans: 69 119.
