Cognizant Placement Papers – Quantitative Aptitude
Cognizant Aptitude section is a part of Cognizant online Test for Programmer Analyst role. Cognizant hiring for the Associate role does not have this section in the online test.
1) In an election between two candidates, one got 55% of the total valid votes and got 20% invalid votes. At the end of the day when the total number of votes were counted, the total number was found to be 7500. So what was the total number of valid votes that the winning candidate got, was:
Since 20% of the votes were invalid, 80% of the votes were valid = 80% of 7500 = 6000 votes were valid. One candidate got 55% of the total valid votes, then the second candidate must have 45% of the votes = 0.45 * 6000 = 2700 votes.
2) A whole number n which when divided by 4 gives 3 as remainder. What will be the remainder when 2n is divided by 4?
According to the question, n = 4q + 3. Therefore, 2n = 8q + 6 or 2n = 4(2q + 1) + 2. Thus, we get when 2n is divided by 4, the remainder is 2.
