Technical attitude test(Round 1)

This round consisted of 30 aptitude questions based on general aptitude and computer science fundamental subjects like operating system, dbms, c/c++, sql, computer networks.

Around 300 students sat for this test and 41 students were shortlisted for the next coding round.

Coding round(Round 2)
This round consisted of 1 programming question which had to be solved in a timespan of 90 minutes.
The test was conducted on codility platform.
The coding question was that we are given a rectangle which is of size 26×26 and we have been given some battle ships and their is another person who does not knows what is the position of these battle ships and he randomly hits those battle ships and the positions that the person hits are given.
The battle shop can be of maximum 4 size and we were given the top left and bottom right corner of the battle ship.
We had to return what is the number of battle ships that are hit and are sunk.
The battle ship is said to be sunk of all the coordinates of the battle ships in the matrix have been hit and if some coordinates are hit then the battle ship is only hit but not sunk.

For example
Ship – {1A 2B, 3A 3A}
Hits – {1A 3A 5C 1B}

In this example there are 2 battle ships and the second person has made 4 hits.
The position of the ships are from index (1, 1) to (2, 2) and the position of second ship is from (3, 1) to (3, 1).
The battle ship 1 has been hit and battle ship 2 has been sunk.
