# ThoughtWorks Placement-Paper

**THOUGTWORKS**

**Directions**

In this paper a number of problems are stated in the form of flow charts.

A flow chart is simply a “road map” by which you must find your way from one “town” to the next and obey every instruction you come to.

Always follow the” road” downward or to the right, unless an arrow indicates a different direction or unless an instruction requires you to do otherwise

When you come to a “fork” in the “road” there will be a question for you to answer. Match your answer with you “sign posts” on the branches leading out of the fork, and you will know which way to go

When you are told to put a number into a box it is understood that whatever number was previously in that box has just been erased

All numbers used to be in the test are to be integers ( no fraction)

Problems 4-7 are slightly different from those questions just completed

In these problems, you will be told exactly what each flow chart is intended to accomplish.

You must decide what number must be in a specified box to enable someone following the flow chart to accomplish the required outcome.

No more and No less

In the following problem you are told something about the result, and you must determine what the content of the boxes must have been , in order to obtain the result.

In these problems ,the expressions (number in box x) is abbreviated as (x)

In each of the following problem no two boxes contain the same number

The largest number_____________(a)

The smallest number ______________(b)

The largest number_____________(a)

The smallest number ______________(b)

The largest number_____________(a)

The smallest number ______________(b)

**Read these Directions**

In the following programme you must grasp the significance of the individual steps in the flow chart and correct an error which has been deliberately placed there

In the following problem no two boxes contain the same number

In order to correct this flow chart we must change instruction no. ______(a)

So that the first box number mentioned in it is box number ___________(b)

And the second box number mentioned in it is box number ____________(c)
