Placement Papers: Honeywell Paper 2010

Doorsteptutor material for CTET/Paper-1 is prepared by world's top subject experts: get questions, notes, tests, video lectures and more- for all subjects of CTET/Paper-1.

Honeywell conducted a test in IIT and Interview was in their office at B, lore. Test contained 100 multiple choice questions divided into

  • Verbal ability (15 ques)
  • Numerical aptitude (15)
  • Logical and analytical ability (15)
  • Elementary computer science (10)
  • Programming langauages (20)
  • Operatins systems and Data structures (25)

Not sure about the number of questions.

Verbal ability questions contained 3 parts.

One passage is given and U have to answer 5 questions

Some words are given and their synonyms have to be written

Numerical aptitude and Logical questions were the usual stuff.

Interview Rounds

I had 4 rounds of interview.

First round (around 45 minutes) contained, questions from Real-time

  • Systems (my research area) , operating systems and Software Engineering
  • Explain U, r research work.
  • What is a Real-Time System?
  • What is the difference between Hard and Soft real-time systems?
  • What is a mission critical system?
  • What is the important aspect of a real-time system?
  • Explain the difference between microkernel and macro kernel.
  • Give an example of microkernel.
  • Why paging is used?
  • Which is the best page replacement algo and Why?
  • WHat is software life cycle?
  • How much time is spent usually in each phases and why?
  • Which one do U want to work if selected in Honeywell?
  • (I said I don, t like testing)
  • They asked why?
  • I said it is a boring job. Then they tried to analyse
  • the knowledge in testing.
  • What is testing?
  • Which are the different types of testing?
  • Then they explained the way they do testing. They said that they are
  • doing testing in requirement phase and design phase so that if any
  • problem comes in those phases it is not ncecessary to go back and change
  • the requirement or design. All the test processing is automated.
  • Why do U want to join Honeywell?
  • Ans: To get a practical feeling of Real-time systems.
  • Do U know C ++ ?
  • How good are U in C and C ++ ?
  • Rate U, rslef in both C and C ++ (1 − 10 marks) .

Second round (around 45 minutes)

  • They wanted a bio-data at the time of inteview. I gave the placement office bio-data and in that one there was column, Major subjects studied, Many of the questions came from those.
  • Explain U, r research work. Lot of questions from it.
  • What is a distributed system?
  • Some questions about CSP (I kept quiet) .
  • Which languages do U know?
  • What are the differences between Pascal and C.
  • I said Pascal is a strongly typed language.
  • Then what is typing and its advantages?
  • Then he asked some questions from Compiler construction and Lisp.
  • WHich are the different computer architectures?
  • What is the requirement in MIMD?
  • What is the difference between RISC and CISC processors?
  • Difference between loosely coupled and tightly coupled systems?
  • What is an open system?
  • Still a lot of questions from software engineering.
  • Which are the different phases in Software life cycle (asked again)
  • Why is analysis and testing phases very important?
  • Which methodologies are U familiar with?
  • Have U worked in windows (Yes) ?
  • What is the difference U have seen from a Dos environment?
  • I said it event driven.
  • So what do U mean by event driven?
  • How do WinMain look like?
  • How the messages are processed in Windows?
  • (Queue of events)
  • What are parameters needed to distinguish an event?
  • Have U done any network programming?
  • Why networks are layered?
  • What is the advantage of that?
  • How many layers are there in OSI?
  • WHy is it called OSI model?
  • Are U familiar with network topologies?
  • Which are the different network toplogies?
  • Tell an example of bus type network.
  • I said ethernet.
  • What is the Bandwidth of ethernet?
  • Explain the advantage and disadvantage of ethernet?
  • Which is the protocol used in ethernet (CSMA/CD) .
  • Why is it called so?
  • If all stations tries to communicate at same time, what will happen.
  • What is binary exponential backoff algo?
  • What is the advantage of Ring network?
  • Compare it with ethernet.
  • In a real-time system which one do U prefer and why?
  • What is the basic requirement of a real-time network?
  • Which one is costly-ethernet of ring networks?
  • Some questions form OOSD and Digital signal processing.
  • What is inheritance, encapsulation etc.
  • Third Round (15 minutes)
  • Asked about the percentages and marks during SSC, PDC, B. Tech and MS.
  • When can U join?
  • Who is U, r guide?
  • U are from which place?
  • Where is it in Kerala?
  • How do U perform in the first two interviews?
  • WHy have U given Honeywell as dream job?
  • Some more personal questions

Fourth Round (45 Minutes)

Aptitute test: 15 Minutes, 20 Questions

Towards the middle questions are easy than from the front.

eg. Product of three consecutive nos. 210. What is the sum

of two least numbers?

ans. 5 ⚹ 6 ⚹ 7 = 210, sum = 11 is answer

eg. If the area of the sqaure is increased by 69 % how

much the length of the side will increase?

ans. 13 (i think)

eg. If the sum of five consecutive nos. 35? how many prime nos

are there:

ans: 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 9 = 35 so two primes

eg. If the length of the rectangle is reduced by 20 % and breath

is increased by 20 % what is the net change?

ans. 4 % decrease 2
