I appeared for ACCENTURE on 8th of April, 06. Paper was easy but lengthy, time management is the main strategy. The paper went something like this:
1) Verbal Section:
A) Passage 1 (5 questions)> theme: Do not believe whatever you read in newspaper. Questions were direct except the last one. the last question was based on the central idea of the passage.(Apprx. passage length : 300 words )
B) Passage 2 (5 questions)> theme:benefits from the merger of IT companies.questions were not very direct.but, obviously managable.( length : 400 words)
C) Synonyms (5 questions)> words were: superfluous,aroma,shied
D) Grammer (5 questions)> selecting the right sentence from 4 options. options were close, need to read between words.based on tense and article.
E) Preposotions (5 questions)>very very easy questions. 1 example: received _____ thank ______ Mr. Murthy a sum ____ Rs. 50000.(Ans:With,from,of)
2) Quantitative Section:
lengthy solutions. suggestion is that approach should be option based.solving traditionally may take a lot of time.
1) Three persons A,B,C participates in a race. A completes one lap in 10 mins, B in 12 mins, and C in 16 mins.How many laps has A run when all the three participants meet for the first time.
2) How many multiples of 3 when added together gives 1134?
3) Mr. X reads 1/5th of a book on Monday, on Tuesday he reads 5/8th of the remaining. On Wednesday, he reads 49 pages and thereby completes the book. How many pages the book consists of?
Questions were on Area, Perimeter,Pipes & Cisterns, Time & Work, Sequences, nymber System,Speed Distance & time, Profit and loss,
3) Logical Reasoning:
A)Venn-diagram (3 questions)>. Simple questions-need to know just the basics of Venn-Diagram.
B)Syllogism(5 questions)>
Example: All cats are dogs.
All bats are cats.
4 options after this, you have to select the correct conclusion.
C)Picture based questions ( 5 questions): R.S.Agarwal Non-Verbal Ability book may help. I found these 5 questions confusing.
D) questions on operators (3 questions):
example: If " means - ", " means / ", then whats the value of (96)(84).
E)Questions on Scheduling:
Example: A,B,C,D,e,F are 6 programmes to be organised on Wednesday evening show. If A is scheduled then B is not scheduled.( totally 6 conditions)
Option based approach should be undoubtly adopted or will become unmanagable.
