EIL Mechanical engineering questions with answers MT exam on October 10th 2013

Here EIL topic wises questions with answers placement papers .This is new latest placement papers questions topics EIL Industrial engineering, Strength of materials,Theory of machines,luid mechanics & machinery etc.., 


Hi friends, Iam Anirban... Mechanical branch.. I attended EIL MT 2013 at Nagpur..on 20.10.2013 .....I woud like to share the technical part with you all...

> The paper @ 1st look seemed very easy..?? but after thorough was vry tricky.. :)
> Questions 4m all topics were there was about basics, but in most questions..100% probability of making a mistake was there.. :( :)
> level of paper was good..not too easy..not too tough.. :)
>most questions were 4m RK Jain..but not all.. :) && also, sum questions are direct IES & GATE questions asked in previous years.. :)
