AMDOCS PAPER AT NOIDA ON JULY 2006

AMDOCS PAPER AT NOIDA ON JULY 2006 AT DELHI


Be cool, the cut off for this is 60% absolute in this test that is easy to achieve,

Different sections:

->> PROGRAMMING SECTION:time : 1 hour ( sufficient)

For this you will be given a booklet of 5-10 pages that contains the basics of Amdocs
derived language ...very similar to C... Please read

it carefully before start attempting this section ( there is some problem in the software , so
the time get started as u click on this section). So please first read it then start the test ,
even examples.

There are 5-6 main questions.. they are like algorithm.. you have to understand what to be
done in the programme and there are 4-5 sub

questions for each main question. The subquestion are of fill in the blanks type, some are
for pedicting the output ect.
->>LANGUAGE TEST : 20 que, 30 minutes

In the begening you have to select any programming language like C,C++,Java. I
appeared for C and the questions are easy. Time : more

than sufficient.

->> SQL /DATABASE TEST : 20 que: 30 min


Easy one SQL commands, 1 que on views, 1-2 questions are on basic database.

->> UNIX : 20 que, 30 minutes

Easy, basic UNIX COMMAND... read yeswant kanitkar book.. starting 5 chepters..

4-5 questins on general things like on protocols,TELNET ect.

->>PATTERN MATCHING SECTION : 60 questions , 6 minutes.

This is unique,easy and scoring part. But the time is very very less.. u have to be very
fast. Generally one can attempt 20-30 que only.....

But this is very important to score good in this section..

example:

for ( ;x + 5*y >800 ; ++i+++)

is similar to

1.for ( ;x - 5*y >800 ; ++i+++)

2.for ( ;x + 5*y >800 ; ++i++)

3.for ( ;x + 5*y >800 ; ++i+++) CORRECT

4.for ( ;x + 5*y >80; ++i+++)

See here all the options are looking similar. You don't need to apply any logic, any
calculation... just find the same "pattern" ... its quite hard to attempt in fraction of
seconds. Your main consern in this section should be ACCURACY and TIME.

Perhaps there is NO NEGETIVE marking, so before 1 minutes just mark all ( note that
there is separate time for each section, so in 6

minutes, this section will go out)

->>APPTITUDE TEST 20 que, 30 minutes

The questions are quite good and need some practice. Time is main concern time and
work

age

strems
percentage and ration

profit and loss

->>NON VERBAL REASONING TEST 20 que, 30 minutes

Good questions, little tough, time is concern.

Practice some RS Agrawal book.

questions are like...

- complete the sequence.. and 4 pictures are given in and the 5th one is to be chosen
through the given options.

->>VERBAL REASONING TEST 20 que, 30 minutes

There are basically the questions of data sufficiency and questions based on venn
digramms... like

All A are B.

Some B are D.

then which is tru

Amdocs pattern

Amdocs test has 2 sections

1. Aptitude consist of 4 sections n consisted of diagrammatic reasoning n non verbal stuff

2. Technical test consisted of 4 sections each of pseudocode,c,unix n sql all tests r


computer based

The tests were :

1. Analytical reasoning: maths

2. diagrammatic reasoning: In this, we were given 8 diagrams and had to select the9th
corresponding

dg frm the givn choices. U have to be very fast in this test.

3. problems to be solved using Venn diagrams.

4. This test was to check our adaptation to the computer screen.We had to solve abt 30 qs
in 15 min.

U have to be very very fast in this also.

5. In this test we were given a booklet of abt 7-8 pgs in which there was the syntax of
some

hypothetical lang, ( its syntax was somewhat like Visual Basic). This was very easy since
the

whole syntax was given & u can refer to it. We were given almost 90-120mins for this
test. If u

want u can rd the booklet before the start of the test.The qs consisted of programs for
which

u have to find the o/p or where there is wrong syntax etc.


6. C test: Study pointers very well .Visit C For Swimmers,C Puzzles,FREE C/C++
Code,A1CCode,C Code Snippets,Interview Questions on C/C++,Lab programs,C/C++
FAQ that helps you to test the C/C++ programming strengths. It also consists of qs on
args of main function, i.e. argc and argv

7. SQL test: It consisted of sql queries mainly inner join, outer join ,group by statements
etc.

8. Unix test: kernel, 1-2 qs on TCP/IP, basic commands ( more on commands)

One was like a square has 4 white lines and 1 black line in it..than next 3 white ,2 black
and so on.

Practice some of such type questions, which will help u in the test.

Technical

1. Test Language

A code is given with some spaces in between


U have to fill up the spaces with correct option, so that code would work correctly.

*******************Remember following points *******************

Print n --> for displaying n


read n --> for taking input n from terminal
main() ends with endmain
for ends with endfor
while ends with endwhile.

data types-->
Intiger
Real
string

Arithmetic operation between integer and real is always integer.

a = mod(b,10) --> a stores remainder


always integer
a = sqrt(b) --> a store square root of B
always integer
a = sizeof(b[ ]) --> a stores size of array.

a =XXX(b,2,3) ---> copy string b into a starting from 2nd position upto next 3.
xxx = i don't remember this.

for loop is like this

For i=1 to N step 1


.
.
.
.
Endfor

Dont forget to revise palindrome, fibonaci programs of C.


This will help a lot.

Amdocs Recruitment Pattern
Amdocs test has 2 sections
1. Aptitude consist of 4 sections consisted of diagrammatic reasoning n
non verbal stuff
2. Technical test consisted of 4 sections each of pseudocode,c,unix n sql

all tests r computer based

In C learn for - Programming (ARRAY,SEARCH,SEQUENCE


NUMBERS,PERFECT
NUMBBERS,FIBONOCCI etc),Quries on STRINGS ,MACRO especially
In SQL learn for - Commands that are somewhat internal like COMMIT,
etc..but its easy only
In UNIX learn for - the common features of UNIX console,executing
the
commands ,syntax etc.,
The aptitude cum technical test for Amdocs consisted of 7-8 papers. The test is
computer based .It takes abt 5-6 hrs. Each paper has a time slot . u can take a
break after each test. It's very cool.

The tests were :


1. Analytical reasoning:simple maths
2. diagrammatic reasoning: In this, we were given 8 diagrams and had to
select the 9th corresponding dg frm the givn choices. U have to be very fast in
this test.
3. problems to be solved using Venn diagrams.
4. This test was to check our adaptation to the computer screen.We had to
solve abt 30 qs in 15 min( I don't remember the timings very well). eg:
q#Df684%d
options would be: 1. q#Df634%d 2. q#Df684%d 3. q#df684%D 4. q#Df685%d
U have to be very very fast in this also.
5. In this test we were given a booklet of abt 7-8 pgs in which there was the
syntax of some hypothetical lang, ( its syntax was somewhat like Visual
Basic). This was very easy since the whole syntax was g iven & u can refer to
it.
We were given almost 90-120mins for this test. If u want u can rd the booklet
before the start of the test.(As I said, U can start a paticular test whenever u
want). The qs consisted of programs for which u have to find the o/p or where
there is wrong syntax etc.
6. C test: Study pointers very well .Visit www.c4swimmers.esmartguy.com
that helps you to test the C/C++ programming strengths.
7. SQL test: It consisted of sql queries mainly inner join, outer join ,group
by statements etc.
8. Unix test: kernel, 1-2 qs on TCP/IP, basic commands ( more on
commands).

AMDOCS PAPER ON 6TH JULY 2007

Hi friends, Amdocs came to our campus for placements on july 6th,2007. This year they
have changed the pattern. It was only 2 hours exam. They have removed the pseudo code
section. Total 7 sections were there – 4 for aptitude and 3 for technical(C/C++/JAVA, sql,
unix). They have selected all the candidates who opted for JAVA in the technical section.
There were 95 questions in total. There was sectional cut off of 60% for aptitude section.
For technical section, there was no sectional cut off. But in total as usual 60% cut off was
there. The total paper was objective. 0.25 negative marking was there.

Section –I
1.Analytical Ability – 20q
2.Pattern Matching – 15q
3.Comprehension -- 10q

Section-II
1.C/C++/Java – We can choose one of them -- 20q
2.SQL -- 15q
3.Unix. – 15q

Analytical Ability
I remember only very few questions. First two questions related to sets. In a forest in total
42 animals are there of which 21 have 4 legs n 30 have horns n 5 have both. Then
1. How many animals are there with only 4 legs
2. How many animals are there with only horns
3. There is a die. We can see only three sides of the die at a time. When 3 was on the top
2,4 were on the adjacent sides like that 2 more cases were given and we have to find out
the number which is on the opposite side of 2
4. sdfsdf
5. questions 5-10 are alike. Two statements n one question will be there. All of them will
be having the same options of
a. The question can be answered with help of only Statement I.
b. With help of only Statement II.
c. We need both the statements to answer the questions
d. We can’t answer the question at all.

And I remember some questions among them

What is the value of sin ½ ? n the statements are


a. sin½cos½=0
b. sin½-cos½=0
What is the value of n?
a. k3-n3=0
b. k=0
Is A=1?
a.3A2/5A2=3/5
b.AB=1
…..like that

Questions 12-16 will be having some number conversions. In general they will give the
binary to decimal conversion indirectly. Like for us they have given the following
instructions.

In a number system, $ represents 1 and * represents 0. $ when shifted to left , will be


multiplied by 2. So 4 is represented as $** .
And they have given the questions like evaluate the expression like that. And in another
paper I saw that they have given the same pattern except that @ represents 1 and #
represents 0.

Pattern Matching
In pattern Matching the following options were there for questions 1-3.
A. The expression is same as A&C
B. The expression is same as B&C
C. The expression is same as A&B
D. All are same.
E. None of them are same.
Sample question:
1. nnMMM@7.34
A. nnMMM@7.34 B.nnMMM@734 C. nnMMM@7.34

Be careful in this section


2. In some system + represents *, - represents +, * represents / and / represents- then
evaluate the following expression 6/8-3*6+4
3. Similar kind of question with different system

For Questions 6-10 they have given selection criteria of a company and we have to find
out whether the given candidate is eligible or not like

The candidate need the following:


1. He should have 60% till 12th in all the examinations
2. He should have minimum of 65% in graduation and 70% in post graduation

And he should satisfy atleast one of the following conditions:


1. He should have recommendation letter.
2. He should be an athlet in atleast state level

1. Rahul have 62% in 12th , 75% in graduation n 80% in PG. He was tennis champion in
university Level. (Ans: not eligible)

Questions 11-15 also have the same type of questions but the selection criteria is
different.

Comprehension
We were given a comprehension related to sequential, direct memory addressing,
indexing n hashing and based on that 10q were there.

1. What is the output?


Struct ee
{
int i;}
Main()
{
Printf(“main()”);
} (Note: Semicolon is missing after struct)

2.What is the output?


Main()
{
Int I=5;
For(i=5;i>=0;i--)
{
Printf(“%d”,i); Main();
}
} (Note:I is not a static variable)

3. What is the output?


Main()
{
Char *p;
p=fun();
Printf(“%s”,*p);
}
Char* fun()
{
Char b[]=”hello”;
Return b;
}

Some more questions on strings, One question was there on enumerations …. Like
that…..

SQL
Most of the questions u can answer only if u know PL/SQL n with some knowledge of
ORACLE.

UNIX
My seniors told me that in previous papers shell scripting was not there but this year we
have some questions on shell scripting too. So be prepared for that.
1. What is the output? – shell scripting for loop and command line arguments
2. One question on $$ -- used for shell variables
3. What happens when we give cal j 1997—j is for jan, june,july
4. One question on pipes using te

Hi Amodocs Written pattern is as below :

There are two section


1. Aptitude section: This section consist of 3 sub section analytical reasoning, learning
ability and logical reasoning.
a. analytical reasoning: in this section total 20 question in 20 minutes
1) If 50 student plays cricket and 30 plays football and 10 plays both find the total
number of student in a class.
2) If $ means less then, ? means not greater then, * not equal to and % means not not less
then
2.1) find one which implies P$Q*R like question.

b. logical reasoning
if + = / and - = * and / = + and * = - then
1) 2+4/5-7*8 equal to

c. learning ability : one passage is given we have to read the passage and find the
answers.

2. Technical - Java, unix and sql

java:
1. some question on thread and trace the output of the program

sql:
some question on index and view and query related questions, some on permission and
constraints question most of the theoretical questions.

unix;

1. command for comparing two files


2. cat file1 file2 >> file3 find output.
3. which command is used to create a sub processes
4. ls -l ! grep unix > temp.txt what is output.
5. how to delete 100 lines in vi editor using single command
6 which key is used to reach to the end of line
7. if temp.txt contains 100 lines how to print 11th lin
