ATOS ORIGIN PATTERN & INTERVIEW - 10 AUG 2007
In my opinion the written round was reasonably tough. There was negative marking and sectional cut-off.
Practice a little R.S. Agarwal.
Quantitative - time n distance, work, Venn, sets, linear equations, there were more I don’t remember.
English - Reading Comprehension, synonyms, analogy, fill in the blanks, more. But I don’t remember
Essay - They said that this is NOT A DISQUALIFIER. The essay will be gone through during the interview to "assess" your thoughts
My interview was a "Piece of Cake"
Tech and HR interview happened simultaneously. Most of my time was spent in answering HR questions.
The questions that I can remember are
1) How would you dynamically allocate memory to an array
int * p;
p = (int *)malloc(n*sizeof(int));
2) What is return parameter of a constructor
constructor does not return anything
3) How will you make it return something
Send address of return variable as an argument to the constructor.
Store in pointer and modify
4) how is multiple inheritances done in Java.
5) Suppose you have a class C address 192.168.0.x
192.168.0.1 is for router
