CTS Sample Paper #2 This is only a sample paper. We are not providing you with all the questions  just some
questions to give you a general idea of the test pattern. SECTION I  8 questions based on series.
1. These questions involve interchange of letters in a word at particular locations and also
interchanging letters adjacent to those particular locations.Certain other conditions may
also be given
For eg.
Let the word be ABBAABA
If we apply 25 on this, it means we have to interchange the letters at positions 2 and 5,
also we have to change the letters adjacent to positions 2 and 5 i.e.from A to B and B to
A.
A B B A A B after Step 1 i.e interchange of 2 and 5 becomes AABABB
Now change adjacent elements of 2 and 5...finally answer becomes
Ans: B A A B B A
Questions 15 are based on the pattern with changed numbers as described above
Questions 68 are of the following type
To get AAABBD from BBBAAA what number should be applied:a) 25
b) 34
c) 25 & 34
d) none SECTION II
1. Given the following functions
(1) f(n a b c ) = ac if n=1
(2) f(n a b c) = f( n1 a c b) + f( 1 a b c) + f( n1 b a c ) if n > 1
Then what is the value f( 2 a b c ) = ?
Ans: f( 2 a c b ) = ab + ac + bc. 2. Similar question on functions.

volcanoes.But in history it was written that it was not due to those volcanoes.It proves a
contradictory to form the view that history will be proved wrong in the future.
Inference?
42)In a poultry form because of cloning,a large breed of hens were produced.This
increased the production but the maintenance was very difficult because of the large
number.This does not mean that cloning is a disaster in the scientific world but it is a tool
which in some ways is constructive but in other ways ,it is destructive.Inference? This is only a sample paper. We are not providing you with all the questions  just
some questions to give you a general idea of the test pattern.
SECTION I  8 questions based on series. 1. These questions involve interchange of letters in a word at particular locations and also
interchanging letters adjacent to those particular locations.Certain other conditions may
also be given
For eg.
Let the word be ABBAABA
If we apply 25 on this, it means we have to interchange the letters at positions 2 and 5,
also we have to change the letters adjacent to positions 2 and 5 i.e.from A to B and B to
A.
A B B A A B after Step 1 i.e interchange of 2 and 5 becomes AABABB
Now change adjacent elements of 2 and 5...finally answer becomes
Ans: B A A B B A
Questions 15 are based on the pattern with changed numbers as described above
Questions 68 are of the following type
To get AAABBD from BBBAAA what number should be applied:a) 25
b) 34
c) 25 & 34
d) none
SECTION II
1. Given the following functions
(1) f(n a b c ) = ac if n=1
(2) f(n a b c) = f( n1 a c b) + f( 1 a b c) + f( n1 b a c ) if n > 1

Then what is the value f( 2 a b c ) = ?
Ans: f( 2 a c b ) = ab + ac + bc.
2. Similar question on functions.
3. [ Based on the function in the first question] For the function f( 4 a b c ) the number of
terms is...?
Hint f( 4 a b c ) = f( 3 a c b ) + f( 1 a b c ) + f( 3 b a c ) etc. 4. What is the value of the function f( 5 a b c ) = ?
SECTION III
Permutations and Combinations.
8 Questions.
1. r = number of flags;n = number of poles;
Any number of flags can be accommodated on any single pole.
1)r=5,n=5 The no. of ways the flags can be arranged ?
Questions 25 are based on the above pattern
6. r = 5 n = 3 . If first pole has 2 flags, third pole has 1 flag
How many ways can the remaining be arranged?
Questions 7.& 8. are similar to Question 6.

2) This section had the funda of xOy where x and y
represented strings of Gs . The test was to find the
valid or invalid patterns with ref. to the rules
1) L=list of objects
ex:L={a,b,c,d} where a,b,c,d are objects
P(L) was a function( dont remembr xatly)
M(L) was another function defined etc
in the following questions P(x) etc were given to be
found out.
Note : this may take considerable amnt of time. so
take intelligent guesses Section 1 : Functions.
Q: 1  8
Certain functions were given & based upon the
rules & the choices had to be made based on recursion.
This is time consuming, but u can do it.
Try to do it at the end. start from the last section.
L(x) is a function defined. functions can be defined as
L(x)=(a,b,ab) or (a,b,(a,b),(a,(b,b)),a,(b,b))....
two functions were given A(x) & B(x) like

if l(x)=(a,b,c) then A(x)=(a) & B(x)=(b,c)
i.e., A(x) contains the first element of the function only.
& B(x) contains the remaining, except the first element.
then the other two functions were defined as
C(x) = * if L(x) = ()
A(x) if L(x) = () & B(x) != ()
C(B(x)) otherwise
D(x) = * if L(x) = ()
** if B(x) = ()
A(x) if L(x) != () & B(x) != ()
D(D(x)) otherwise
now the Questions are,
1 : if L(x) = (a,b,(a,b)) then C(x) is ?
(a): a (b): b (c): c (d): none
2 : if L(x) = (a,b,(a,b)) then find D(x)
same options as above
3 : if L(x) = (a,b,(a,b),(b,(b))) find C(x)
4 : ~~~~~~~~ find D(x)
5 : if L(x) = (a,(a,b),(a,b,(a,(b))),b) then find c(x)
6 : ~~~~~~~~ find D(x)
7 : if L(x) = (a,b,(a,b)) then find C(D(x))
8 : ~~~~~~~~ find D(C(x)) Section 2 : Word series
Q's : 9  16
This is one of the easiest section. Try to do it at first.
if S is a string then p,q,r form the substrings of S.
for eg, if S=aaababc & p=aa q=ab r=bc
then on applying p>q on S is that ababaabc
only the first occurance of S has to be substituted.
if there is no substring of p,q,r on s then it should not be
substituted.
If S=aabbcc, R=ab, Q=bc. Now we define an operator R Q when
operated on S, R is replaced by Q, provided Q is a subset of S,
otherwise R will be unchanged. Given a set S= ………., when R Q, P==

questions to give you a general idea of the test pattern. SECTION I  8 questions based on series.
1. These questions involve interchange of letters in a word at particular locations and also
interchanging letters adjacent to those particular locations.Certain other conditions may
also be given
For eg.
Let the word be ABBAABA
If we apply 25 on this, it means we have to interchange the letters at positions 2 and 5,
also we have to change the letters adjacent to positions 2 and 5 i.e.from A to B and B to
A.
A B B A A B after Step 1 i.e interchange of 2 and 5 becomes AABABB
Now change adjacent elements of 2 and 5...finally answer becomes
Ans: B A A B B A

BROWN 2004
There were different papers for different sessions.
The paper had 5 sections, 5 * 8 = 40 Q's. totally. Section 1 : Functions.
Q: 1  8
Certain functions were given & based upon the
rules & the choices had to be made based on recursion.
This is time consuming, but u can do it.
Try to do it at the end. start from the last section.
L(x) is a function defined. functions can be defined as
L(x)=(a,b,ab) or (a,b,(a,b),(a,(b,b)),a,(b,b))....
two functions were given A(x) & B(x) like
if l(x)=(a,b,c) then A(x)=(a) & B(x)=(b,c)
i.e., A(x) contains the first element of the function only.
& B(x) contains the remaining, except the first element.
then the other two functions were defined as
C(x) = * if L(x) = ()
A(x) if L(x) = () & B(x) != ()
C(B(x)) otherwise
D(x) = * if L(x) = ()
** if B(x) = ()
A(x) if L(x) != () & B(x) != ()
D(D(x)) otherwise
now the Questions are,
1 : if L(x) = (a,b,(a,b)) then C(x) is ?
(a): a (b): b (c): c (d): none
2 : if L(x) = (a,b,(a,b)) then find D(x)
same options as above
3 : if L(x) = (a,b,(a,b),(b,(b))) find C(x)
4 : ~~~~~~~~ find D(x)
5 : if L(x) = (a,(a,b),(a,b,(a,(b))),b) then find c(x)
6 : ~~~~~~~~ find D(x)
7 : if L(x) = (a,b,(a,b)) then find C(D(x))
8 : ~~~~~~~~ find D(C(x)) Section 2 : Word series

Q's : 9  16
This is one of the easiest section. Try to do it at first.
if S is a string then p,q,r form the substrings of S.
for eg, if S=aaababc & p=aa q=ab r=bc
then on applying p>q on S is that ababaabc
only the first occurance of S has to be substituted.
if there is no substring of p,q,r on s then it should not be
substituted.
If S=aabbcc, R=ab, Q=bc. Now we define an operator R Q when
operated on S, R is replaced by Q, provided Q is a subset of S,
otherwise R will be unchanged. Given a set S= ………., when R Q, P==
672; R, Q
 P operated successively on S, what will be new S? There will be 4 =
: if s=aaababc & p= aa q=ab r=bc then applying p>q, q>r & r>p will
give,
(a): aaababc (b): abaabbc (c): abcbaac (d): none of the
a,b,c
10: if s=aaababc & p= aa q=ab r=bc then applying q>r & r>p will
give,
11: if s=abababc & p= aa q=ab r=bc then applying p>q, q>r & r>p will
give,
12: if s=abababc & p= aa q=ab r=bc then applying q>r & r>p will
give,
13: if s=aabc & p=aa q=ab r=ac then applying p>q(2) q>r(2) r>p
will
give,
(2) means applying the same thing twice.
14: similiar type of prob.
15: if s=abbabc p=ab q=bb r=bc then to get s=abbabc which one should be
applied.
(a): p>q,q>r,r>p
16: if s=abbabc p=ab q=bb r=bc then to get s=bbbcbabc which one should
be
applied.
Let us consider a set of strings such as S=aabcab. We
now consider two
more sets P and Q which also contain strings. An operation
P>Q is defined in
such a manner that if P is a subset of S, then P is to be
replaced by Q. In
the following questions, you are given various sets of
strings on which you
have to perform certain operations as defined above. Choose

With the above instructions, find the following using
iterations:
1. R(P(L)) where L=(a,b,(a,b),(b,a))
2. R(P(L)) where L=(a,(a),(b,b),b)
Example(1)P(L)=P(a,b,(a,b),(b,a))
where A(L)=(a)
B(L)=(b,(a,b),(b,a))
B(B(L))=((a,b),(b,a))
So, third condition is applicable
So, P(L)=M(a,M(b,P((a,b),(b,a))) find this using the
