IBM Placement Paper December 2009 (Madurai)


•Data Matrix Questions (no negative marking) : 15 questions in 12 minutes

•Number Series (1/4th negative) : 20 questions in 4 minutes

•Arithmetic Questions (1/4 negative): 12 questions 15 minutes

I have not remembered the exact question but i can give you the sample type that will certainly help you.




Col 1 Col 2 Col3 Col4

Row 1 @ % $ #

Row 2 % + # &

Row 3 @ & % #

Row 4 * + $ &


Interchange Row3 with col3 , Row1 with Row4 and reverse the diagonal elements from top left to bottom right:

Quest; which is the 4th element of row2;

Quest; which is the second diagonal element from top;


NOTE: change in the matrix is applied only for the particular questions only , it is not reflected in to another question.

SERIES: Series questions are very very simple. You must manage your time in such a way that you can go across all the questions in 4 minutes.

1: 11,22,23,11,24,25, ?

2: 1,4,9.64, ?

3: 2,3,5,7, ? (prime numbers)



After the Written Test , There is a GD round in which they mainly concentrate on your communication skills. GD topic on"MONEY MAKES PEOPLE IRRESPONSIBLE".


IBM Paper At Mysore


This is the new pattern of IBM. this new pattern has been implemented. it contains 3 sections. SECTION 1, some information is given in the form of matrices, with headings for rows as row1,row2 …. Etc.For columns with headings as column1,column 2…. Etc.those matrices r as follows.


Column1 column2 column3 column4

Row1 @ * 2 Z

Row2 S K ? $

Row3 I P Z +

Row4 # 8 F Q


Questions r as follows ( not same questions but same type)

1.if column1 , Column 4 r interchanged and row3 , row4 r interchanged and diagonal elements from top left to bottom right are written in reverse order then what is the element in row1 and column 1?


2.if Z’s in odd numbered rows r replced with 7’s and S’s in odd numbered columns r replaced with 5’s then which column elements sum e quals to 9?


3.After giving similar type of conditions , what is the element left to H?  In this section they gave around 4 matrices of this type and gave some questions for each matrix.


Total No. of Questions r 15. these r multiple choice questions.5 answers were given for each question. No negative marks for this section. Time Limit is 13 minutes.



All questions in this section r from number series. Total number of questions r 20.time limit is 4 minutes.these r also multiple choice questions( 5 options).Negative marking(1/4) is there for this section.


2. NUMBER SERIES (20 qs -4 mins-20 marks- negative 1/4)


Simple but v shud b very quick....time is very very very imp 4this section frnds dont get confused really very simple section and 1more thing is the invigilaor signals time 4 every 30 secs dont feel tensewth tht just go wth ur work..


EX: 17,18,19,34,35,19,20,___



EX: 22,21,34,33,45,____



EX: 40,41,41,42,42,42,44,44,____



Here usually two number series will be mixed it very easy but should identify it



Negative marking(1/4) is there for this section. Analytical type Questions . this secton is little bit tough.u must have practice to do this section. questions 12.time 15 minutes. Negative marking(1/4) is there for this section.


1 If a company produces 15 different model of tv sets, 2 inchs screen and 4 different model of 4 inch screen size then how many model should vendor has for all the model.


2 If a team consists 20 members in which 20% are mathematician then how many member should they hire sothat the ratio would become 10/11.


3 The rate of color toner increases $33 to $35 and rate of black&white toner increases $28 to $29 if company spend $1540 in which 3/5 is color toner how much is total expenditure.


4 A computer shop consists 3 brand’s alptop .Laptop of brand A is sold 3/16, B is sold 1/16 and c is sold ? then what fraction is sold by the shop in all.

Ans 1/16


5 Printer A prints 8192 character per min and printer B prints 13862 character per min four character are equal to one word.

In first weak 75 books are used, in second 95, in third 95 and in fourth 160 books are used.then tell how much fraction of books are used  7 We have 171 kg rice custing 7 rs/kg.we have rice at 11 rs/kg and 2 rs/kg .then after mixing 11 rs/kg and 2 rs/kg rice. What is quantity of 11 rs/kg rice ..

Ans 76.00


8 rectangular room has width half of its length. When 6 is decreased from both length and width then its area is differed by 108 so find the width.

Ans: l =8, W=4


9 rectangular room has width twice of its length. When 6 is decreased from both length and width then its area is differed by 108 so  find the width.

L=4 W=8 here questions will be almost simillar to above but data will be changed.
