## Mindtree Test Pattern - Sample Questions

Based on Mindtree test pattern, a few sample questions are given from each section. You can also practice section wise questions and answer. Check them here.

### Mindtree Aptitude Sample Questions

The Aptitude section of the test includes three sections, in the following order and weightage;

TopicTime GivenNo of Questions
Quantitative Aptitude35 mins25
Logical Reasoning35 mins24
Verbal Ability25 mins25

Take a look at a few sample questions below that may appear in the Mindtree online test;

1) A reduction of 20% in the price of wheat enables a person to purchase 12.5 kg more for Rs. 800. The original price of wheat per kg is:

1. Rs. 16
2. Rs. 18
3. Rs. 20
4. Rs. 14

Ans: a

Let the price of the wheat is X, the quantity of the wheat is Y.

So, the total amount is XY = 800 => Y = (800/X), because of the reduction of 20% in the price of wheat a person was able to purchase 12.5 kg more for Rs. 800 => (0.8X)(Y+12.5) = 800 = (Y+12.5) = (800/0.8X).

The difference between them is, (Y+12.5) - Y = (800/0.8X) - (800/X), On solving X = 16. So, the original price of the wheat, X is Rs 16.

2) Choose a suitable alternative for the underlined word in:

Inspite scoring very high in the exam, Arun failed to secure admission in the college of his choice.

1. Since
2. Despite
3. But
4. Even
5. No correction required

Ans: a

'In spite of'; is the correct usage but there is no option mentioning it. 'Despite'; is used without any proposition, which is a synonym of 'inspiteof'. The only difference between in spite of and despite is the 'of'. For example: Despite the pain in his leg he completed the marathon. Or In spite of the pain in his leg, he completed the marathon. They both mean the same.

3) A lady meets a person in the market who is the wife of the brother of her husband. How is the lady related to the person?

1. Nephew
2. Sister-in-law
3. Sister
4. Cousin

Ans: b

Whenever we solve a blood relation problem, it is much easier if we start tracing the relation from the end of the statement. Starting from the word, 'her husband', we can trace it as her husband's brother, who is none other than her brother in law and her brother-in-law's wife is her sister in law. Therefore the answer is sister-in-law.

### Mindtree Coding/Technical Sample Questions

The technical round usually contains two coding assignments, usually patterns or a logical series.
