Logical Reasoning, in which there were 12 questions, and for each question we had a time limit of 75 seconds. There was a cut-off of 40 for the next round, and people who qualified were sent an e-mail with a link to continue with the process.

Numerical Reasoning-The questions were in a pair of 3 in which a table/bank statement was given and 3 questions were based on that. The questions were purely based on calculations and semi-subjective. The time given for the 1st question was 90 seconds and for the rest 2 questions, 75 seconds each

```
Here, sorted paths mean that the expected output should be in alphabetical order.
```

```
Given a square matrix of size 4*4 (i.e. here 'N' = 4):
1 0 0 0
1 1 0 0
1 1 0 0
0 1 1 1
Expected Output:
DDRDRR DRDDRR
i.e. Path-1: DDRDRR and Path-2: DRDDRR
The rat can reach the destination at (3, 3) from (0, 0) by two paths, i.e. DRDDRR and DDRDRR when printed in sorted order, we get DDRDRR DRDDRR.
```

Coding problem3

It was an face to face round.There were 2 interviewers and they asked me coding question and some puzzles and some questions related to my project which was mentioned in my resume.

```
F(n) = F(n - 1) + F(n - 2),
Where, F(1) = 1, F(2) = 1
```

```
"Indexing is start from 1"
```

```
Input: 6
Output: 8
Explanation: The number is ‘6’ so we have to find the “6th” Fibonacci number.
So by using the given formula of the Fibonacci series, we get the series:
[ 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21]
So the “6th” element is “8” hence we get the output.
```
