You are appointed if you solve these simple questions….

Dear Friends ,

Good afternoon.

Presenting you some interesting problems from the site.

Try to solve these questions as if these have been posed to you during a written test or have been asked by the interviewer. Believe me , these type of sums usually decide the fate of your selection for a job. They appear so simple on the surface that you tend to loose your focus from them. Then subsequently you realize that you have committed some very silly error during solving .

Practice ..Practice and Practice is the only mantra that can be given for the success.

So , as usual , first try to solve them all by yourselves.

When you think you have found the answers , move slightly below the question and find the answers.

Best of luck.!

Ready ?

Set ..Go….
