Examrace Placement Series prepares you for the toughest placement exams to top companies.


Hai, This is Naresh Gurram { B. Tech (EEE) (SBIT, Khammam, AP) } with the help of my friend M. Bhaskar here I am submitting EIL question

paper, we wrote the test on 6th April 08.

Here we are Posting the qns which we remembered. Friends prepare the basics thoroughly since the tech. Paper covered all the topics which are related to our engineering subjects like:


POWER SYSTEM (max qns).



APTITUDE (2 to 3 qns), & GEN PHYSICS (i.e.mechanical engg qns)

General knowledge & GEN ENGLISH (3 or 4 qns).

Questions: 150

Duration: 2 h

It consists of two sections

General knowledge & current affairs

Technical paper (different for different streams)

One important point is, in 2007 Eil paper, most of the qns are based on measurements & Instrumentation but in 2008, most of the qns are from

Power systems. So dont depend on one subject. The qns are simple, only 20 % qns require simple analysis. But for wrong ans ¼-ve is deducted. And the cut off is also a bit high i.e.varies from 100 − 110.
