The email needed to be grammatically correct and error-free and about 70-80 words in 10 minutes. The question allocated to me was, “Write an email to the bank manager requesting them to block your credit card as your wallet was pickpocketed on the bus.”

  • Header Files required for printf functions
  • What will the fopen function return if the file is not found?
  • Pointers and strings
  • Coding Section

When the written test was over, I was asked to wait until my result was declared. Soon I came to knew I got selected for the interview round.

  • What are classes and objects?
  • What is inheritance?

  • Use of grep command.

Lastly, he asked HR related questions such as
