A. 4% of a
B. 5% of a
C. 20% of a
D. None of these

Ans. A


20*a/100=b and b/100*20=? on multiplying 20/100 on eq 1 then it becomes 20*20*a/10000=b*20/100 4*a/100=b*20/100 4% of a=b% of 20 

2. Out of 7 consonants and 4 vowels, how many words of 3 consonants and 2 vowels can be formed?

A. 210
B. 1050
C. 25200
D. 21400

Ans. C


Number of ways of selecting (3 consonants out of 7) and (2 vowels out of 4) = (7C3 x 4C2) = ( 7 x 6 x 5 x 4 x 3 ) 3 x 2 x 1 2 x 1 = 210. Number of groups, each having 3 consonants and 2 vowels = 210. Each group contains 5 letters. Number of ways of arranging 5 letters among themselves = 5! = 5 x 4 x 3 x 2 x 1 = 120. Required number of ways = (210 x 120) = 25200.

3. Two pipes A and B can fill a cistern in 37 minutes and 45 minutes respectively. Both pipes are opened. The cistern will be filled in just half an hour, if the B is turned off after:

A. 5 min.
B. 9 min.
C. 10 min.
D. 15 min.

Ans. B


Let B be turned off after x minutes. Then, Part filled by (A + B) in x min. + Part filled by A in (30 -x) min. = 1. x(2/75 + 1/45) + (30 – x). 2/75 = 1 11x/225 + (60 – 2x)/75 = 1 11x + 180 – 6x = 225. x = 9.

4. Pointing to an old man, Kailash said, “His son is my son’s uncle.” How is the old man related to Kailash?

B. 7.5 days
C. 9 days
D. 6.3 days

Ans. B


Ratio of time taken by A & B = 160:100 = 8:5 Suppose B alone takes x days to do the job. Then, 8:5::12:x = > 8x = 5*12 = > x = 15/2 days.

6. Worker A takes 8 hours to do a job. Worker B takes 10 hours to do the same job. How long it take both A & B, working together but independently, to do the same job ?

20. You want subclasses in any package to have access to members of a superclass. Which is the most restrictive access that accomplishes this objective ?

A. public
B. private
C. protected
D. transient

Ans. C


Access modifiers dictate which classes, not which instances, may access features. Methods and variables are collectively known as members. Method and variable members are given access control in exactly the same way. private makes a member accessible only from within its own class protected makes a member accessible only to classes in the same package or subclass of the class default access is very similar to protected (make sure you spot the difference) default access makes a member accessible only to classes in the same package. public means that all other classes regardless of the package that they belong to, can access the member (assuming the class itself is visible) final makes it impossible to extend a class, when applied to a method it prevents a method from being overridden in a subclass, when applied to a variable it makes it impossible to reinitialise a variable once it has been initialised abstract declares a method that has not been implemented. transient indicates that a variable is not part of the persistent state of an object. volatile indicates that a thread must reconcile its working copy of the field with the master copy every time it accesses the variable. After examining the above it should be obvious that the access modifier that provides the most restrictions for methods to be accessed from the subclasses of the class from another package is C – protected. A is also a contender but C is more restrictive, B would be the answer if the constraint was the “same package” instead of “any package” in other words the subclasses clause in the question eliminates default.

21. Specify the 2 library functions to dynamically allocate memory?

A. malloc() and memalloc()
B. alloc() and memalloc()

Ans. D

24. A data structure where elements can be added or removed at either end but not in the middle is ______.

Ans. D

25. In Ms-Dos what command you will use to display system date ?

A. Date command
B. Ver command
C. Disk command
D. Format command

Ans. A


Ver command displays the version number of Dos. There is no command as Disk. Format command prepares a disk to be used with DOS. Thus Date is the command that lets you to display and/or change the system date.

D. Is-a

Ans. D


#define DIM( array, type) sizeof(array)/sizeof(type)



int arr[10];

printf(“The dimension of the array is %d”, DIM(arr, int));


A. 10
B. 9
C. 11
D. Compiler error

Ans. A


The size of integer array of 10 elements is 10 * sizeof(int). The macro expands to sizeof(arr)/sizeof(int) => 10 * sizeof(int) / sizeof(int) => 10.

McAfee Reasoning Test Placement Papers

A. 60 
B. 65 
C. 68 
D. 70

Answer: Option B

The pattern is +4, +8, +12, +16, … 
Missing Number = 45 + 20 = 65.

2. Study the following information carefully and answer the given questions: 
A word and number arrangement machine when given an input line of words and numbers rearranges them following a particular rule in each step. The following is an illustration of input and rearrangement:
Input: 39 121 48 18 76 112 14 45 63 96
Step I: 14 39 121 48 18 76 112 45 63 96
Step II: 14 39 48 18 76 112 45 63 96 121
Step III: 14 18 39 48 76 112 45 63 96 121
Step IV: 14 18 39 48 76 45 63 96 112 121
Step V: 14 18 39 45 48 76 63 96 112 121
Step VI: 14 18 39 45 48 63 76 96 112 121
This is the final arrangement and step VI is the last step for this input.

What will be the last step for the following input?
Input: 138 63 49 93 89 122 32 71

A. 32 49 71 63 89 93 122 138

C. 32 49 63 71 89 93 122 138 
D. Cannot be determined

Answer: Option C

Step I: The smallest number becomes first and the remaining numbers shift one position rightward.
Step II: The largest number among given numbers becomes last and the remaining numbers shift one position leftward.
The steps are repeated alternately till all the numbers get arranged in ascending order and that will be that last step for that particular input.
As it is certain that the last step will be strictly in ascending order hence we do not require to go through procedure.

B. If only assumption II is implicit 
C. If either I or II is implicit 
D. If neither I nor II is implicit

Which of the following supports the opinion expressed in the above statement?

Though choice (b) states that physical exercise is important, it does not state whether the physical exercise improves the performance or helps to maintain the performance levels.
Choice (c) states that those who does physical exercise exhibit better performance rather than those who does not. Hence, (c) supports the opinion.
