Hi every one, My name is Sarath completed B.Tech.(CSE) .I have attended the Honeywell  at Honeywell campus in Bangalore on 23rd aug 2008.  But I cleared only two rounds and I lost in technical round.

The pattern is as follows:

a) life   b) scope   c) initial default value     d) storage

23. What is the o/p
#define f(x,y)  x=x+y;y=x-y;x=x-y;

printf(“ The values of a and b are, %d, %d”,a,b);
a) 10 5  b) 5 10 c) 5 5 d) 10 10

24. main()
void *ptr;
int  i=1;
a) the size of ptr incremented by 1 byte
b) the size of ptr incremented by 2 bytes
c) the size of ptr incremented by 4 bytes
d) none

I remember these questions only. Remaining are mainly c programs.Around 350 members attended in main campus . Around 80 cleared this round(computers +electronics)
2)Written Test-2(Descriptive- aptitude+technical)
Next round  is again written test consists of 7 aptitude questions and 10 technical questions(all c programs). This test is common for all.

The aptitude questions are
1)There are 4 women to cross bridge and Flashlight.One or two women can cross the bridge with the flash light at a time.those have different walking speeds.The pair must walk at the rate of slower pace
woman1:1 minutes
woman2:2 minutes
woman3:5 minutes
woman4:10 minutes
Then what is the minimum required time to cross the bridge by all the 4 women without throwing flashlight?
Ans) 19 min

First woman1 and 2 will go to other end in 2 min (at the slower pace of woman2)à 2m

Woman 1 will come back -à1min

Woman 1 and 3 will go–à 5min

Woman 1 will come backà1min

Woman 1 and 4 will goà10min

2)There are cats got together to decide killing the mice of 999919,each cat kills equal no. of mice and each cat kills more no.of mice than cats there were.Then what are the number of cats?

3)the tree grows first day 1/2 of its original size,grows 1/3 of its previous day size, and grows 1/4 and so on. How many days it will take to grow 100 times to the original size of tree?
Ans) 150 days

4)There is one 40 kg weight stone. How many weights should I break from this 40 kg so that  it can measure any weight between 1kg to 40 kg?

5)There is one monkey climbs 3fts and slips down 2fts of a tree in 1 hour. How much time it will take to reach the top of the tree of 20fts height?
Ans) 18 hours

6) A ball is released from a height of 100 mts. After falling on the ground it raises to a height of half of the previous height and the process repeats until it comes to rest. What is the total distance traveled by the ball throughout the journey.

7) Complete the series
31  62 __ 25  65 __ 19
Totally (both campuses) around 50 (cs+ec) members cleared this round.

Technical Questions
1) Write a C function to search a number in the given list of numbers .donot use printf and scanf.

2) main()
int  a=10,b=7,c=15,z;
printf(“Biggest number is %d”, z);
Write the expression for z to print the biggest of three numbers using conditional operator.
Ans)       z=((a>b)&&(a>c)) ? a : (((b>a)&&(b>c))?b:c)


3) if( condition)






printf(“ World”);


What should be the condition to display the output as “hello world”.


4) what is the output of the following program



int  cnt,i=7;




Remaining questions are on pointers i.e., what is the output of the program
Technical Interview – 1

In this round they mainly concentrate on C and C++.

The first question is Rate urself in  C .He wrote the algorithm for gcd and asked me to write the program for it.

What is virtual function.

What is meant by monolithic operating system

What printf statement will return

What is the difference between multiprogramming and multitasking

Is UNIX multiuser os &  Is windows ?

What is preprocessing

Write c program for queue

Write the layers in OSI model and what is the difference b/w connection oriented and connection less

Is sending SMS conn. oriented or conn. less?

And sending mail is conn. oriented or conn. less?

What is use of “tail” command in unix

And “ps” command

Water fall model in s/w engg.

He asked What is a process

I told program under execution

He asked what is program

I told sequence of instructions

He again asked what is meant by instruction etc. So be strong in technical subjects mainly c and c++.
Technical Interview -2
