TCS Confidential
12. If f(x) = 7 x +12, what is f-1(x) (the inverse function)?
a) (x-12)/7
b) 7x+12

13. A permutation is often represented by the cycles it has. For example, if we permute the
numbers in the natural order to 2 3 1 5 4, this is represented as (1 3 2) (5 4). In this the (132)
says that the first number has gone to the position 3, the third number has gone to the
position 2, and the second number has gone to position 1, and (5 4) means that the fifth
number has gone to position 4 and the fourth number has gone to position 5. The numbers
with brackets are to be read cyclically.
If a number has not changed position, it is kept as a single cycle. Thus 5 2 1 3 4 is represented
as (1345)(2).
We may apply permutations on itself If we apply the permutation (132)(54) once, we get 2 3 1
5 4. If we apply it again, we get 3 1 2 4 5 , or (1 2 3)(4) (5)
If we consider the permutation of 7 numbers (1457)(263), what is its order (how many times
must it be applied before the numbers appear in their original order)?
a) 12
b) 7
c) 7! (factorial of 7)
d) 14
14. What is the maximum value of x3y3 + 3 x*y when x+y = 8?
a) 4144
b) 256
c) 8192
d) 102
15. Two circles of radii 5 cm and 3 cm touch each other at A and also touch a line at B and C. The
distance BC in cms is?
a) 60
b) 62
c) 68
d) 64

TCS - sample questions

  • 1. TCS Confidential Note: These are not sample questions, but questions that explore some of the concepts that may be used. The intention is that you should get prepared with the concepts rather than just focusing on a set of questions. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1. What are the total number of divisors of 600(including 1 and 600)? a) 24 b) 40 c) 16 d) 20 2. What is the sum of the squares of the first 20 natural numbers (1 to 20)? a) 2870 b) 2000 c) 5650 d) 44100 3. What is where is the number of ways of choosing k items from 28 items? a) 406 * 227 b) 306 * 226 c) 28 * 227 d) 56 * 227 4. What is where is the number of ways of choosing k items from 28 items? a) 256 b) 3 * 227 c) 329 d) 3 *427 5. A call center agent has a list of 305 phone numbers of people in alphabetic order of names (but she does not have any of the names). She needs to quickly contact Deepak Sharma to convey a message to him. If each call takes 2 minutes to complete, and every call is answered, what is the minimum amount of time in which she can guarantee to deliver the message to Mr. Sharma. a) 18 minutes b) 610 minutes c) 206 minutes d) 34 minutes
  • 2. TCS Confidential 6. The times taken by a phone operator to complete a call are 2,9,3,1,5 minutes respectively. What is the average time per call? a) 4 minutes b) 7 minutes c) 1 minutes d) 5 minutes 7. The times taken by a phone operator to complete a call are 2,9,3,1,5 minutes respectively. What is the median time per call? a) 5 minutes b) 7 minutes c) 1 minutes d) 4 minutes 8. Eric throws two dice, and his score is the sum of the values shown. Sandra throws one die, and her score is the square of the value shown. What is the probability that Sandra’s score will be strictly higher than Eric’s score? a) 137/216 b) 17/36 c) 173/216 d) 5/6 9. What is the largest integer that divides all three numbers 23400,272304,205248 without leaving a remainder? a) 48 b) 24 c) 96 d) 72 10. Of the 38 people in my office, 10 like to drink chocolate, 15 are cricket fans, and 20 neither like chocolate nor like cricket. How many people like both cricket and chocolate? a) 7 b) 10 c) 15 d) 18 11. If f(x) = 2x+2 what is f(f(3))? a) 18 b) 8 c) 64 d) 16
  • 3. TCS Confidential 12. If f(x) = 7 x +12, what is f-1(x) (the inverse function)? a) (x-12)/7 b) 7x+12 c) 1/(7x+12) d) No inverse exists 13. A permutation is often represented by the cycles it has. For example, if we permute the numbers in the natural order to 2 3 1 5 4, this is represented as (1 3 2) (5 4). In this the (132) says that the first number has gone to the position 3, the third number has gone to the position 2, and the second number has gone to position 1, and (5 4) means that the fifth number has gone to position 4 and the fourth number has gone to position 5. The numbers with brackets are to be read cyclically. If a number has not changed position, it is kept as a single cycle. Thus 5 2 1 3 4 is represented as (1345)(2). We may apply permutations on itself If we apply the permutation (132)(54) once, we get 2 3 1 5 4. If we apply it again, we get 3 1 2 4 5 , or (1 2 3)(4) (5) If we consider the permutation of 7 numbers (1457)(263), what is its order (how many times must it be applied before the numbers appear in their original order)? a) 12 b) 7 c) 7! (factorial of 7) d) 14 14. What is the maximum value of x3y3 + 3 x*y when x+y = 8? a) 4144 b) 256 c) 8192 d) 102 15.

If coal costs the railway company Rs. 15 per 100 kg and if the other expenses of running the train is Rs. 12 per hour, find a formula for the cost in paise per kilometer when the speed is S km per hour. a) 7 b) 0 c) 6 d) None of the other 3 choices 64. a, b, c are non-negative integers such that 28a + 30b + 31c = 365. Then a + b + c is: a) 12 b) less than or equal to 11 c) greater than 13 d) 13
