************************: oracle paper

the test was of 1 hour 30 ques. g apti and 30 of
ques. of g apti were very lengthy so don't end up in solving
them.....time was less......some 15 ques. from arithmetic......and
logical,statement interpretation,arrangement,tense
i am enclosing here the 2 C questions :
1. given a square matrix which consists only of 1 and 0......find
rows,which cols and which diagonals consist entirely of 1's.
2. given an array of integers find all possible combinations of
numbers whose sum equal to 90.....
ans : knapsack problem (in data structures - aho ullman)
Note : for them solution was not the criteria.......but the
was important......the solution should be generalised and
optimized........optimization was given the top priority........
here is the techincal paper :
plz try to solve them urself by trying on comp.
1. const int MAX=10;
{enum a {a,b,MAX};
print MAX;
2. enum object is a const which can only be assigned a value at
initialization or a variable which can be assigned any value in
middle of
the program?
3. void *p;
what operation cannot be performed on p?
ans : arithmetic operation unless it is properly typecasted
4. char **p="Hello";
print p,*p,**p
5. main()
{char str[]="Geneius";
print (str);
print(char *s)
6. what does the function fcloseall() does ?
7. main()
{printf("Genius %d",fun(123));
fun(int n)
{return (printf("%d",n));
8. difference between definition and declaration.
9. find the error?
{int i=10;
return 2.0;
return 3.0;
10. int a=9,b=5,c=3,d;
d=(b-c)<(c-a) ? a : b;
print d
11. 1+2/3*4+1=?
12. In C++, a variable can be defined wherever needed whereas not
in C
13. main()
{int i=4;
print i;
fun(int i)
{return i/2;
14. what is an array ?
15. printf("\" NITK %%SURAHKAL%% !\"");
16. difference between scanf and gets in case of string input
17. table t1 m rows and x cols
table t2 n rows and y cols
in t1*t2 rows? cols=?
ans. m*n ,x+y
18. symbol of realtionship between 2 entities?
19. which one cannot come in data modelling
a. customer b. student c. office d. speed
20. can a database table exist without a primary key ?
21. whether higher normal forms better than lower forms as far
redundancy is concerned ?
22. file is at which level
ans. conceptual level
23. what is a foreign key

Oracle at BIT...well i cleared the written but the interview was
really rigourous...it was in 4 rounds....with streching upto 8
per candidate who was selelcted....Oracle took a total of 10
people(9 BEs and 1 MCA)

The oracle paper was difficult to remember...

but i can give brief outline as to what could be studied...The
Technical consisted of C,Pl/SQL and JAVA....go through Ivan
Bayross for Pl/SQL and Pointers in C by Kanetkar....some of the
were directly from there.....

u may also do DBMS concepts.....as to what is Data
Modelling,Transactions, Distributed Databases

In my interview.....first we had a short test on C Programming
where in i
was given C programs to write on PREORDER Tree traversal and
Conversion of
Infix to Postfix expression...the interview followed where they
grilled me
on Java and C preprocessors from head to toe...but was unable to
clear the
second round of interview

I think these questions will be useful for those who are going to
attend the Oracle_Bangalore Interview.

The questions asked to me in Oracle Interview are:

1st interviewer(one hour 10 minutes)

1. There is dual switch bulb,we have to write the truth table
and also FSM for that dual switch bulb.

2. Write a program to check whether the given comments are
nested comments are or not(/*ajsd/*asdh*/asd*/ is nested comment
but /*asd*/ /*kjasdh*/ is not a nested comment)-you can write program
in any language...

3.Check whether the trees are structurally similar or
not....program using linked list

4. What is virtual functions and some question on virtual
