Question Pattern

The overall Quantitative Aptitude section of the drive was of the medium difficulty level. According to various test-takers, the following can be interpreted:

 5 Infosys questions asked in the Quants section was easy and the remaining 5 were tricky and difficult.

The easy Infosys questions were from Percentages, Time and Distance, Cryptarithmetic, Profit and Loss, and Mensuration.

This time, a new type of question was introduced in the Infosys Drive. A passage was given with several numbers and questions were asked from it. These questions were difficult to answer. Some of these questions involved permutation and combination.

The type of Time and Distance question asked in one of the papers is– If I start from home 2 hours late and travel at x km/hr 2, I will reach the office at r time. If I start 2 hours early and travel at y km/hr, I will reach the office at s time. Find the distance between home and work.

The new type of question is– A passage was given about 4 Mobile phones from the brands HTC, Nokia, Moto and Samsung. Each phone has a Dual Camera with megapixels ranging from 1 – 8. The questions asked were tricky and the candidates were asked to find the possible combination of megapixels they ask for.

Cryptarithmetic questions asked were- CARROT + MIN+ T= POTATO and please + make = offer – o+f+s+r

The candidates were asked to find the area of the Trapezium from the Mensuration Topic.
