N= 12+X*(Y-Z)

Where X, Y, Z are variables repersenting single digits(0 to 9). Alok would like to maximize N while Bhanu would like to minimize it. Towards this end,Alok chooses a single digit number and Bhanu substitutes this for a variable of her choice (X,Y,Z). Alok then chooses next value and Bhanu the variable to substitute the value finally Alok proposes the value for the remaining variable Assumig both play to their optimal strategies the value of N at the end or the game would be?

This type also repeated for three time with change of exp
Ans: Better go through the options given NEVER place 0 or 9 in the Expression

20) On planet korba, a solar blast has melted the ice caps on its equator. 9 years after the ice melts, tiny planetoids called echina start growing on the rocks. Echina grows in the form of circle, and the relationship between the diameter of this circle and the age of echina is given by the formula d = 4*√ (t-9) for t ≥ 9 where d represents the diameter in mm and t the number of years since the solar blast.Jagan recorded the radius of some echina at a particular spot as 7mm. How many years back did the solar blast occur?

23) Given a collection of points P in the plane , a 1-set is a point in P that can be separated from the rest by a line, .i.e the point lies on one side of the line while the others lie on the other side. The number of 1-sets of P is denoted by n1(P). The minimum value of n1(P) over all configurations P of 11 points in the plane in general position (.i.e no three points in P lie on a line) is

a) 3 b) 11 c) 2 d) 8
24) In a family there are some boys and girls. All boys told that they are having equal no of brothers and sisters and girls told that they are having twice the no. of brothers than sisters. How many boys and girls present in a family?

The goal is to bring the special coins adjacentto each other and the first player to do so wins the game. Initially the special coins are separated by two ordinary coins O1 and O2. Which of the following is true?

a) In order to win, Alok should remove O1 on his first turn.

c) In order to win, Alok should remove O2 on his first turn.
d) Alok has no winning strategy.

These are some questions that i face I answered totally 32 questions. Don't answer all 35 questions correctly even if you know there may be a chance of upper cutoff.

I completed my technical, Managerial and HR rounds and awaiting for the result.

All the best!
