I am writing this to help all those preparing for TCS – Touchstone aptitude test. The test consists of 35 questions with no verbal ability. Many think there is no verbal but the plan of TCS is to test your verbal ability in the questions of aptitude itself. Because each of the question contains atleast 5 – 6 lines with lot of stories & irrelevant data. The actual question data will be not more than 1 line.

So only if you are good in verbal ability you can understand the question & answer. I attended online aptitude test on 18th sep on veltech Chennai.


Here are the questions I got.

I don’t remember the exact data but I give you the question model & how to solve.


Ramu & sangeetha went for biological analysis to a island which is 34km from their place. They travelled in a boat which went at a speed of 2m/s. when they are in half a distance in the boat sangeetha note there are 7 leg & 8 leg octopuses under the water. Ramu counted the total number of legs of octopuses and got 54. Sangeetha instantly said I know how many 7 leged octopuses are there under the water. They both reached the island after 20 min they left . How many seven leged octopuses does sangeetha calculate?

1. 4

2. 5

3. 6

4. 7

Ans : Total number of legs of both 7 & 8 leged octobus = 54. Find number of 7 leged octopuses


Go from answer

4(7 leged octobus) + X = 54.

5(7 leged octobus) + X = 54. Similarly do for all. The x you get should be exactly divisible by 8. Only one answer will satisfy the condition.

Note : you may find lot of nonsense stuff to test verbal ability. Just take required data alone. From the next question onwards I post necessary data only.
