                                      The Death Car

It was cold night in September. The rain was drumming on the car roof as George & Marie
Winstion drove through the empty country roads towards the house of their friends, the
Harrissons, where they were going to attend a party to celebrate the engagement of the Harrisons
daughter, Lisa. As they drove, they listened to the local radio station, which was playing classical
music. They were about 5 miles from the destination when the music on the radio was interrupted
by a news announcement: ―The Cheshire police have issued a serious warning after a man
escaped from Colford Mental Hospital earlier this evening. The man, John Downey, is murderer
who killed 6 people before he was captured 2 years ago. He is described as large, very strong &
extremely dangerous. People in the Cheshire area are warned to keep their doors & windows
locked, & to call the police immediately if they se anyone acting strangely.‖ Marie shivered, ―A
crazy killer. And he‘s out there somewhere. That‘s scary.‖―Don‘t worry about it,‖ said her
husband. ―We‘re nearly there now. Anyway, we have more important things to worry about. This
car is losing power for some reason—it must be that old problem with the carburetor, If it gets
any worse, we‘ll have to stay at the Harrisons‘ tonight & get it fixed before we travel back
tomorrow,‖ As he spoke, the car began to slow down, George pressed the accelerator, but the
engine only coughed. Finally they rolled to a halt, as the engine died completely, Just as they
stopped, George pulled the car off the road, & it came to rest under a large tree. ―Blast!‖ said
George angrily. ―Now we‘ll have to walk in the rain.‖ ―But that‘ll take us an hour at least,‖ said
Marie. ―And I have my high-held shoes & my nice clothes on. They‘ll be ruined!‖ ―Well, you‘ll
have to wait while I run to the nearest house & call the Harissons. Someone can come out &
picks us up,‖ said George. ―ButGeorge! Have you forgotten what the radio said? There‘s a
homicidal maniac out there! You can‘t leave me alone here!‖ ―You‘ll have to hide in the back of
the car. Lock all the doors & lie on the floor in the back, under this blanket. No-one will see you,
when I come back, I‘ll knock 3 times on the door. Then you can get up & open it. Don‘t open it
unless you here 3 knocks.‖ George opened the door & slipped out into the rain. He quickly
disappeared into the blackness. Marie quickly locked the doors & settled down under the blanket
in the back for a long wait. She was frightened & worried, but she was a strong-minded woman.
She had not been waiting long, however, when she heard a strange scratching noise. It seemed to
be coming from the roof of the car. Marie was terrified. She listened, holding her breath. Then
she heard 3 slow knocks, one after the other, also on the roof of the car. Was it her husband?
Should she open the door? Then she heard another knock, and another. This was not her husband.
It was somebody--or something--else. She was shaking with fear. But she forced herself to lie
still. The knocking continued-- bump, bump, bump, bump Many hours later, as the sun rose, she
was still lying there. She had not slept for a moment. The knocking had never stopped, all night
long. She did not know what to do. Where was George? Why had he not come for her?

Suddenly, she heard the sound of 3 or 4 vehicles, racing quickly down the road. All of them
pulled up around her, their tires screeching on the road. At last! Some one had come! Marie sat
up quickly & looked out the window.

The 3 vehicles were all police cars, & 2 still had their lights flashing. Several policemen leap out.
One of them rushed towards the car as Marie opened the door. He took her by the hand.

―Get out of the car & walk with me to the police vehicle. miss. You‘re safe now. Look straight
ahead. Keep looking at police car. Don‘t look back. Just don‘t look back.‖

Something in the way he spoke filled Marie with cold horror. She could not help herself. After 10
yards from the police car, she stopped, turned & looked back at the empty vehicle.

George was hanging from the tree above the car, a rope tied around his neck. As the wind blew
his body back & forth, his feet were bumping gently on the roof of the car-- bump, bump, bump,

And he shows already written function prototypes asked to describe it.. as
int *(*p)(int a, float b) // pointer 2 the function p returns integer pointer
           int (*p)(int *a, float b) //pointer 2 the function p returns integer
           int *p(int a, float *b) // function p returns integer pointer
           int p(int a, float *b) // function p returns integer
now he looks as impressed and asked

how to return 1000 variables from a function in C?

Now seen changes to second person of CRL

Directions for question nos. 1-2: Eighty Five children went to amusement park where they could ride on
merry –go-round roller coaster and Ferris wheel .It was known that 20 of them have took all three rides and
55 of them have taken at least two of the three rides. Each ride cost Rs.1 and the total receipt of the
amusement park was Rs.145.

1) How many children did not try any of the rides. ?
A) 5 B) 10 C) 15 D) 20
Ans. 15.
20 kids * 3 rides = Rs. 60
(55-20=)35 kids * 2 rides = Rs. 70
60 + 70 = Rs. 130
So, Rs. (145 – 130 = ) 15 are left for the other (85 – 55 = ) 30 kids . so only 15 of them can take a ride and
rest 15 will be left out.
145 rides were taken. 20 of them took all three, i.e. Rs. 60 were spent, so 145-60= Rs. 85 are left for the
others. Total kids were 85, so rest were 65. out of these 65,

5) Heros tell truth and cowards lie.There PQR three persons. P tells Q "I may be hero or I may be coward". Q
tells R "P was telling that he was coward. Then R tells Q "P was not a coward but he was a hero".
you better study the question it may not be entirely correct.
In thus 3 q"s are there

Part 1: (Verbal/English, 25 Q - 15 min)
This was cool.
All Antonyms, Analogies got repeated from previous papers.


a. window:bedroom
b. lument:barevemant
c. pot:pan
d. face:penalty
remises:duty cognet:argument
easy:hard careful:position
man:women doctor:medicine
war:destrustion shopkeeper:goods
skin:body chain:link
product:factory page:book
club:people page:book
product:factory picture:paper

Time is sufficient.
No special preparation needed (provided u r good enough)
Just gaze thru previous papers' antonyms & analogies
Sentence completion & fill ups are easy.
Instead of mugging up antonyms, I personally recommend u to read Synonyms, so that u can easily locate
their opposites. (U can refer TCS papers also if needed)

Part 2: (Quantitative Aptitude, 45 Q - 30 min)

This was tough.

Repeated Q's:

One monkey climbs a poll at the rate of 6mts/min and fell down 3mts in the alternately. Length of the poll is
60 mts , how much time it will take to reach the top?

Other Q's:

consider a square ABCD, in which E is the mid-point of BC & F is that of CD. Now find the ratio of area of
triangle AEF to the area of square ABCD. (ans: 3/8)

Do not remember rest of the them.

Bottom Line:
This section makes the difference.
Special preparation is mandatory.
Try to solve problems of every type from R.S. Agarwal
Leave complex Q's & proceed forward.

Part 3: (Reasoning, 30 Q - 30 min)

This was 50 - 50
I confidently solved around 16 of them.

1)There are 4 buses - A,B,C,D. There are 220 students in a school.
A can carry 60 students. B can carry 50 students. C can carry 40 students. D can carry 35 students
