### I thought the interview was all about communication skill... no c c++ java.. no unanswerable questions... no domination... quite cool... he had to see me speaking confidently with out the bias of fear r something else... so he kept the interview cool... of-course, i have tried my best for that... You will be almost selected if u pass the written exam... provided with acceptable communication levels and confidence.. no need of Hollywood level speed or verbal skills... just convey your matter in a cool and simple way.. Take some care to protect your character by answering with contradiction or domination.... if done so.. u have got yourself a job at Infosys...

### You have 8 pennies, 7 weight the same, one weighs less. you also have a judges scale. Find the one that weighs less in less than 3 steps.

âł

A better answer: Split the 8 pennies into 3 groups of 3,3,2 pennies. Weight the first two groups of 3 pennies each. Case 1) - They weight the same. Therefore, take third group of 2 pennies and find the lighter coin. Case 2) Group 1 weights more than Group 2. Take group 2 (3 pennies) and pick any 2 out of 3. If they weight the same, then the third penny is lighter. Answer is trivial if they don't weight the same. It works for any scenario. Always split the groups in 3. Less

âł

Neil has it right. Dave - the question says less than three steps.

âł

I Can do it in one step: Look at the year on the pennies. If 7 pennies weigh the same it means that all 7 were manufactured either before or after 1982, when the mint changed the composition of the coin from solid copper to copper with a zinc core. the one that weighs differently was minted on the opposite side of 1982 as the 7 other pennies.

### identify the number of 1s in an integer is odd or even

âł

Was taken from: http://graphics.stanford.edu/~seander/bithacks.html unsigned int v; // word value to compute the parity of bool parity = false; // parity will be the parity of v while (v) { parity = !parity; v = v &amp; (v - 1); } Less

âł

Above solution is incorrect. void OnesAreOdd(int n) { int i=0; while(n!=0) { n=n&amp;(n-1); i=i^1; } return i==1?true:false; } Less

âł

Let number be c int count = 0; while ( c != 0 ) { count += (c &amp; 1); c &gt;&gt; 1; } if ( count%2 == 0) printf("Number of 1s are even); Less

### There is a body of water that starts with 1 square unit, and doubles in size every day (2 units after 2 days, 4 units after 4 days). It takes 100 days to fill up. How many days would it take to fill if you started with 2 square units?

âł

100 - 1 = 99 days

âł

Starting with 2 square units at time t=0 is like 1 square unit at t = 1. [this logic is the key to answering the question]. Now let's do the first few cases. t = 0: size = 1+1 = 2 t = 1: size = 2(1+1) = 2+2 = 4 = f(2) in the 1 unit case. Pretty easy to see it only requires 1 time period less from here. The OP was right. Less

âł

This question is phrased incorrectly. I think you meant "4 units after 3 days". Which makes your answer wrong as well. This is not helpful at all. Less
