**Automata Fix:**

**Q1. **You are required to
complete the given code. You can click on Compile & Run anytime to check
the compilation/ execution status of the program. You can use cout to debug
your code. The submitted code should be logically/ syntactically correct and
pass all test cases. Do not write the main() function as it is not required.

**Code Approach: **For this question, you
will need to complete the code as in the given implementation. We ** do not **expect you to modify the approach.

The function/ method **median**** **accepts two arguments - *size and inputList*,
an integer representing the length of a list and a list of integers,
respectively.

The function/method * median* is
supposed to calculate and return an integer representing the median of elements
in the input list. However, the function/method

**median**works only for odd-length lists because of incomplete code.

You must complete the
code to make it work for even-length lists as well. A couple of other
functions/ methods are available, which you are supposed to use inside the
function/method **median **to complete the code.

**Helper Description**

The following function
is used to represent a quick_select and is already implemented in the default
code (Do not write this definition again in your code):

int quick_select(int*
inputList, int start_index, int end_index, int median_order)

{

/*It calculates the
median value

This can be called as

quick_select(inputList,
start_index, end_index, median_order)

where median_order is
the half length of the inputList

}

execution status of the program. You can use cout to debug your code. The
submitted code should be logically/ syntactically correct and pass all test
cases. Do not write the main() function as it is not required.

**Code Approach: **For this question,
you will need to correct the given implementation. We ** do not **expect you to modify the approach or incorporate
any additional library methods.

The function/method * drawPrintPattern* accepts num, an integer.

The function/method * drawPrintPattern *prints the first num lines of the pattern shown
below.

For example, if num
= 3, the pattern should be:

11

1111

111111

The function/method * drawPrintPattern *compiles successfully but fails to get the
desired result for some test cases due to incorrect implementation of the
function/method. Your task is to fix the code so that it passes all the test

A. 100

B. 110

C. 130

D. 120

Answer: Option B

Explanation:

LCM of (20, 30, 40) = 120

HCF of (20, 30, 40) = 10

Difference between LCM and HCF = 120 - 10 = 110.

Q2. Ronald and Elam are working on an assignment. Ronald takes 6 hours to type 32 pages on a computer, while Elam takes 5 hours to type 40 pages. How much time will they take, working together on two different computers to type an assignment of 110 pages?

A. 7 hours 30 minutes

B. 18 hours

C. 8 hours 15 minutes

D. 8 hours 25 minutes

Answer: Option C

Explanation:

The number of pages completed by Ronald in one hour = 32/6 = 16/3

The number of pages completed by Elam in one hour = 40/5 = 8

The number of pages completed by Ronald and Elam in one hour = 16/3 + 8 = 40/3

Time taken by Ronald and Elam to complete 110 pages = 110/(40/3) = 110 * 3/40 = 33/4 hours = (32/4 + 1/4) hours = 8 hours 15 minutes

Q3. If Anita scores 66 out of a hundred then how much does she score out of 75 approximately?

A. 50

B. 60

C. 66

D. 45

Answer: Option A

Explanation:

Given, Anita scores 66 out of 100.

Let us assume marked scored by Anita out of 75 marks as "x"

By cross multiplication,

x = (75*66)/100 = 49.5

x = 50 (approximately)

Q4. Both Shruti and Pooja randomly choose a colour from red, orange, and yellow. What is the probability that both choose orange?

A. 1/3

B. 1/6

C. 1/9

D. 2/3

Answer: Option C

Explanation:

We know that,

Probability = Favourable outcomes/Total outcomes

The probability that Shruthi chooses orange = 1/3

The probability that Pooja chooses orange = 1/3

The probability that both Shruthi and Pooja choose orange = (1/3)*(1/3) = 1/9

Q5. Choose the correct option

The simple interest earned on a certain amount is double the money when invested for 15 years. What interest rate is offered?

A. 25.66%

B. 12%

C. 30%

D. 13.33%

Answer: Option D

Explanation:

Given,

Time (T) = 15 years

S.I = 2P

PTR/100 = 2P

TR = 200

R = 200/15

R = 13.33%

Q6. Choose the correct option

A started a business with Rs. 2,70,000 and was joined by B three months afterwards. How much money did B invest if the profit share of A at the end of the year was three-fifth of the total profit?

A. Rs. 2,80,000

B. Rs. 1,00,000

C. Rs. 2,70,000

D. Rs. 2,40,000

Answer: Option D

Explanation:

Given, Investment of A (IA) = Rs. 2,70,000

Let the Investment of B (IB) = Rs. x

Time Period of A (TA) = 12 months

Time Period of B (TB) = 9 months

Given, A gets a profit share of three-fifth of the total profit.

So, B gets the remaining two-fifth of the total profit.

The ratio of profit share of A and B = 3 : 2

We know that profit share should be equal to Investment*Time Period

So, A : B = IA*TA : IB*TB

=> 3 : 2 = 2,70,000*12 : x*9

=> x = 2,40,000

Q7. The product of the two numbers is 9,152 and their HCF is 8. What is the LCM of the numbers?

Distance covered by Train A and Train B is the same

DA = DB

SA*TA = SB*TB

SA/SB = 20/16 = 5 : 4

Q10. Choose the correct option.

What is the value of i34?

A. -1

B. 1

C. 0

D. i

Answer: Option A

Explanation:

We know that,

i = √-1

i2 = -1

i3 = -i

i4 = 1

So, i34 = i32 * i2 = (i4)8 * i2 = 1 * (-1) = -1

Q11. Choose the correct option.

If a = 0.24 & b = 1.76, then compute the following expression

a4 + 4a3 b + 6a2 b2 + 4ab3 + b4

A. 1.52

B. 4

C. 1

D. 16

Answer: Option D

Explanation:

Given,

a = 0.24, b = 1.76

We know that,

(a+b)4 = a4 + 4a3 b + 6a2 b2 + 4ab3 + b4

=> (0.24 + 1.76)4

=> 24

= 16

Q12. Choose the correct option.

A. 5/21

B. 21/26

C. 5/26

D. 26/21

Answer: Option B

Explanation:

We know that Probability = Favourable outcomes/Total outcomes

The total number of letters = 26

The total number of consonants = 21

The probability that the token given to Ritu is consonant = 21C1/26C1 = 21/26

Q13. Choose the correct option.

If LCM and HCF of two numbers are 234 and 13 respectively, then the smallest factor of the product of the two numbers is:

A. 2

B. 3

C. 4

DXC Technology Logical Aptitude Questions with detailed solutions are given here. Here are the sample questions that are asked in DXC Technology hiring process.

Q1. Find the next number in the series.

10, 14, 23, 39, 64, __

A. 100

B. 125

C. 128

D. 148

Answer: Option A

Explanation:

Let us consider the difference between the consecutive numbers in the series

14 -10 = 4 = 22

23 - 14 = 9 = 32

39 - 23 = 16 = 42

64 - 39 = 25 = 52

By looking at the differences and the pattern, we can say that the next difference should be 62 which is 36

So, the next number = 64 + 36 = 100

Q2. From the given choices select the odd one out.

A. BCEH

B. PQSV

C. CDGK

D. STVY

Answer: Option C

Explanation:

Let us look at the difference between the consecutive letters in each option.

Option A: BCEH - 1, 2, 3

Option B: PQSV - 1, 2, 3

Option C: CDGK - 1, 3, 4

Option D: STVY - 1, 2, 3

The only option not having the difference between the consecutive letters are 1, 2, 3 is Option C

Q3. Find the next number in the series.

3, 7, 13, 21, ....

A. 36

B. 33

C. 41

D. 31

Answer: Option D

Explanation:

Let us consider the difference between the consecutive numbers in the series

7 - 3 = 4

13 - 7 = 6

21 - 13 = 8

So, we can clearly see that the differences (4, 6, 8) are increasing by 2.

Hence the next difference should be 10.

Therefore the next number should be 21+10 = 31

Q4. If WORD is coded as 9753, then DOOR is coded as:

A. 3775

B. 3579

C. 9357

D. 3559

Answer: Option A

Explanation:

Here the pattern is every letter has got a unique number allocated.

W - 9

O - 7

R - 5

D - 3

So, the code for DOOR is 3775

Q5. Choose the correct option.

QDXM : SFYN :: UIOZ:?

A. PAQM

B. LPWA

C. QNLA

D. WKPA

Answer: Option D

Explanation:

Let us look at the relation between QDXM and SFYN

The pattern is the difference between the respective letters

S - Q = 2

F - D = 2

Y - X = 1

N - M = 1

So, the pattern is 2, 2, 1, 1

So, the term in the place of question should be

U + 2 = W

I + 2 = K

O + 1 = P

Z + 1 = A

Hence, the term is WKPA

Q6. The question consists of a problem question. Find out if the information given in the stater solution to the problem.

Problem question:

Is P divisible by 12?

Statements:

I) P is divisible by 8

II) P is divisible by 3

A. Statement I alone is sufficient in answering the problem question

B. Statement ll alone is sufficient in answering the problem question

C. Either of the statement is sufficient in answering the problem question

D. Both the statements even put together are not sufficient in answering the problem question

E. Both statements put together are sufficient in answering the problem question

Answer: Option D

Explanation:

Here, we need to check whether P is divisible by 12 or not.

We know that the divisibility rule of 12 is the number should be divisible by 3 and 4.

If we look at statement I, it is given that P is divisible by 12. But we don't know whether P is divisible by 4.

Statement II states P is divisible by 3.

Now, even if we combine both statements, we still don't know whether P is divisible by 4 or not.

So, the data is not sufficient to answer the given question.

Q7. The question consists of a problem question followed by two statements I and II. Find out if the information given in the statement(s) is sufficient in finding the solution to the problem.

Problem question: What is the 5th number?

Statements:

1) 1st and 2nd numbers are 1 and 2 respectively.

II) 3rd and 4th numbers are 3 and 4 respectively.

A. Statement I alone is sufficient in answering the problem question

B. Statement ll alone is sufficient in answering the problem question

C. Either of the statement is sufficient in answering the problem question

D. Both the statements even put together are not sufficient in answering the problem question

E.Both statements put together are sufficient in answering the problem question

Answer: Option D

Explanation:

We need to find out the 5th number.

Statement I states that the 1st number is 1 and the 2nd number is 2.

Statement II states that the 3rd number is 3 and the 4th number is 4.

But from both the statements, we cannot find the 5th number because it is never mentioned that the numbers are consecutive. So, the data is not sufficient to answer the question.

Q8. Decode the word(s) / pattern given in the question.

If PENCIL is coded as LICNEP, then ANIMAL is coded as:

A. ANALIM

B. LAMINA

C. AIMNAL

D.LLMINA

Answer: Option B

Explanation:

Given,

PENCIL is coded as LICNEP

Here the pattern is a mirror image i.e. All the letters in PENCIL are mentioned in the reverse order.

So, ANIMAL will be coded as LAMINA.

Q9. Choose the option that arranges the given set of words in the 'most' meaningful order. The words when put in order should make logical sense according to size quality, quantity, the occurrence of events, value, appearance, nature, process, etc.

1.Tree 2. Wood 3. Plant 4. Seed 5. Furniture

A. 3, 4, 2, 1, 5

B. 3, 4, 1, 2, 5

C. 4, 1, 3, 2, 5

D. 4, 3, 1, 2, 5

Answer: Option D

Explanation:

In the given set of words, the first word should be seed.

From seed, a plant grows.

Then plant slowly grows into a tree.

A tree is then cut into pieces and we get wood.

By using wood, we can make furniture.

So, the order of words should be Seed, Plant, Tree, Wood, Furniture i.e. 4, 3, 1, 2, 5

Q10. Choose the correct option.

Mohan is the brother of Rohan's grandmother, how is Rohan related to Mohan?

A. Brother-in-law

B. Uncle

C. Grandson

D. Grandfather

Answer: Option C

Explanation:

Let us assume Rohan's grandmother as 'X'

Rohan could be a grandson or a granddaughter of X as we don't know the gender of Rohan.

We know that Mohan is the brother of X.

So, Rohan should be a grandson or granddaughter of Mohan. As we don't have the option of a granddaughter, we can eliminate that possibility.

Hence, Rohan is the grandson of X

Q11. The question consists of a problem question followed by two statements I and II. Find out if the information given in the statement(s) is sufficient in finding the solution to the problem.

Problem question:

Is B the brother of A?

Statements:

I) A is the brother of C.

II) C is the sister of B.

A. Statement I alone is sufficient

B. Statement II alone is sufficient

C. Both statements put together are sufficient

D. Both the statements even put together are not sufficient

E. Either of the two statements individually is sufficient

Answer: Option D

Explanation:

From statement I, we know that A is the brother of C.

From statement II, we know that C is the sister of B.

So, from the given information, we can say that A is male and C is female.

But, even after combining both statements, we cannot say whether B is male or female.

Hence, B can be the brother of A or B can be the sister of A.

Therefore, the data is not sufficient to answer the question.

Q12. A quality audit company established certain following standards for issuing Standardized certifications to companies. The firms must

1. Have achieved Six Sigma.

2. Possess assets worth 10 lakhs rupees.

3. Deposit 25,000 rupees as registration fees.

4. Have an environment clearance certificate from the Department of environment and forest.

5. Not have any legal case pending against them.

6. Arrange for 3 guarantors with their personal IDs.

However, if the firm satisfies all the above-mentioned criteria, except:

A. criteria (1) but is a local doth supplier, then the case may be referred to the Director of the company.

B. criteria (4) but is a traditional cloth weaving company, then the case may be referred to the Chief executing officer of the company.

C. criteria (3) but can deposit half the fees, then the case may be referred to the Chief finance officer of the company.

A decision has to be taken on the basis of the given conditions. There are two cases based on the same set of conditions. Take a decision for both cases and mark the correct answer for each.

A traditional handloom company obtained its six sigma status on 20th Jan 2010. It has total assets of 12 lakhs and is ready to give 25000 rupees as registration fees. There are no legal cases pending against them and have been able to arrange 3 guarantors for its company reference. They do not have an environment clearance certificate from the Department of environment and forest.

A. The company will be issued the certificate

B. The company will not be issued the certificate

C. The case will be referred to the director of the company

D. The case will be referred to the Chief executing officer

E.The case will be referred to the chief finance officer

Answer: Option D

Explanation:

The traditional handloom company satisfies all the conditions except (4). They do not have an environment clearance certificate from the Department of environment and forest.

Now, there is an exception for condition (4). As the company satisfies the exception case, this should be referred to the Chief executing officer.

Q13. Choose the odd man out

A. 21

B. 24

C. 31

D. 48

Answer: Option C

Explanation:

Out of the 4 options, 31 is the only prime number and the remaining are composite numbers. Hence, 31 should be the odd one.

Q14. Choose the correct option:

8, 12, 24, 60, ...

A. 120

B. 168

C. 142

D. 180

Answer: Option D

Explanation:

Let us understand the pattern in the given series

12 = 8*1.5

Here, 8 is the first term and we have multiplied it by 1.5 to get the second term

24 = 12*2

Here, 12 is the second term and we have multiplied by 2 to get the third term.

60 = 24*2.5
