TCS Apptitude test questions and solutions

1. If log 0.317=0.3332 and log 0.318=0.3364 then find log 0.319 ? 

log 0.317=0.3332 and log 0.318=0.3364, then
log 0.319=log0.318+(log0.318-log0.317) = 0.3396

2. A box of 150 packets consists of 1kg packets and 2kg packets. Total weight of box is 264kg. How many 2kg packets are there ?

x= 2 kg Packs
y= 1 kg packs
x + y = 150     .......... Eqn 1
2x + y = 264   .......... Eqn 2
Solve the Simultaneous equation; x = 114
so, y = 36
ANS :  Number of 2 kg Packs = 114.

3. My flight takes of at 2am from a place at 18N 10E and landed 10 Hrs later at a place with coordinates 36N70W. What is the local time when my plane landed?
Options:  a) 6:00 am b) 6:40am c) 7:40 am d) 7:00 am e) 8:00 am

The destination place is 80 degree west to the starting place. Hence the time difference between these two places is 5 hour 20 min. (=24hr*80/360).
When the flight landed, the time at the starting place is 12 noon (2 AM + 10 hours).
Hence, the time at the destination place is 12 noon - 5:20 hours = 6: 40 AM

4. A plane moves from 9°N40°E to 9°N40°W. If the plane starts at 10 am and takes 8 hours to reach the destination, find the local arrival time ?

Since it is moving from east to west longitude we need to add both
multiply the ans by 4
convert this min to hours ie, 5hrs 33min
It takes 8hrs totally . So 8-5hr 30 min=2hr 30min
So the ans is 10am+2hr 30 min
=>ans is 12:30 it will reach

5. Y catches 5 times more fishes than X. If total number of fishes caught by X and Y is 42, then number of fishes caught by X?

Let no. of fish x catches=p
no. caught by y =r
then p=7,r=35
therefore, number of fishes caught by X are : 7
