  • CMWSSB recruitment 2017 application, vacancies & payment procedure

    cmwssb recruitment

    Till the mid of 19th century, Chennai residents were used to take water from tanks and local shallow wells. A civil engineer, Mr. Fraser sent a proposal to the state government to provide water supply from the Kortalayar River located around 160 km northwest of Chennai and the proposal was accepted.

    The project included a masonry weir across the river at Tamarapakkam and diverted the water into Cholavaram Lake and, then into the Red Hills Lake from the channel.

    The project was finished at around Rs. 18.50 Lakhs in 1870. At Red Hills, a Valve House and a supply channel were built in 1872 to provide water supply to Chennai through gravitation. At the end of the city, the channel supplied water into the masonry shaft by gravity at Kilpauk where the cast iron mains branched off in the city and designed water supply distribution system scientifically.

    In 1978, Chennai Metropolitan Water Supply & Sewerage Board (CMWSSB) was established under the Corporation of Chennai. It is a public sector company responsible for the development of covered underground masonry conduit from Jones intake tower to Kilpauk.

    The Blood/Family Relation tests are known to be an exercise to test the ability of a candidate to comprehend and come to the point of issue from lengthy, complex and unclear idea.

    Here are some of the important family relations 

    • Father’s/Mother’s son – Brother

    a) Hari

    b) Mala

    c) Shalaka

    d) Meena

    Answer – Mala is Kusha’s daughter and Ram is Kusha’s father. Hence, Mala is Ram’s granddaughter.

    Consider these Common Terms when Solving Answers

    The meaning of some terms are used widely in family relationships related questions, such as –

    • Child – Son or Daughter (Even though they are adult)
    • Parent – Mother/Father
    • Spouse – Husband/Wife
    • Sibling – Brother/Sister (Including step-sister and step-brother – at least one similar parent)

    Common Relationships

    Uncle, Aunty, Nephew and Niece

    • The term “Uncle” is used by many English speakers for four relations – mother’s brother, father’s brother, husband of mother’s sister, and husband of father’s sister
    • Aunt is also used to define mother’s sister, father’s sister, wife of father’s brother, and wife of mother’s brother
    • Sister’s or brother’s son is known as a nephew. Sister’s or brother’s daughter is known as a niece.
    • Cousins is used to introduce children of uncle or aunt

    Relations with Term “In-Law”

    Any term in relationships ends with “in-law” shows that relationship is through marriage, not blood. In general the relationship terms “In-laws” are mentioned in hyphens (-). The plural is defined before “in-law”. For instance, it is “brothers-in-law”, not “brother-in-laws”.

    Who’s who of them?

    • Mother-in-law is spouse’s mother and father-in-law is spouse’s father. If they get separated and remarry, their new partners are known as stepparents, not father-in-law and mother-in-law.
    • The wife of the son is referred as daughter-in-law and husband of a daughter is son-in-law. If your partner has children from last marriage, these are known as stepchildren, not daughters-in-law or sons-in-law. That person is their stepmother or stepfather, not mother-in-law or father-in-law.

    Brother-in-Law/Sister-in-Law

    Both sister-in-law and brother-in-law have several meanings

    • A sister-in-law could be
      • Wife of brother,
      • Sister of spouse, or
      • Spouse’s brother’s wife
    • A brother-in-law could be
      • A sister’s husband
      • Spouse’s brother
      • Spouse’s sister’s husband

    Relationships defined with the terms “Great” and “Grand”

    • Relationships with the second generation are defined with “Grand” term
    • For a person, the first generation over them would be their parents like father and mother. The second generation is called the parents of the parents and they are known as Grandfather, Grandmother or Grandparents.
    • The third generation parents are known as Great Grand Father or Great Grand Mother.

    The term Grand also applies to collateral relations. For example, brother of Grand Father is known as Grand Uncle and son of a nephew is known as Grand Nephew.  There are also fourth generation relationships, known as Great Great Grand. For example, Great Great Grand Son is the son of Great Grand Son.

    It is the easiest way to solve the questions related to blood relations. You can relate yourself to every statement. Assume yourself or your name to the first name in the statement. Here’s an example to solve this type of question.

    Example

    She is Rahul’s brother’s mom’s sister

    In this statement, suppose Rahul is you

    Similarly, your brother’s mother is your mother, of course.

    Your mother’s sister is your Maternal Aunt

    Hence, she is your Maternal Aunt.

    If the question is short, this trick works. But don’t apply it for long questions as it will create conflicts.

    Split the Question into Small Portions

    The statement can get confusing when it is very long. So, you have to split every statement down into sub-statements and attend the problem.

    Example

    He is the son of Prabha’s brother’s aunt’s husband

    Here, assume yourself as Prabha

    Your brother’s aunt is your aunt

    Your aunt’s husband is your uncle

    His son is your cousin. Hence, he is Prabha’s cousin

    Clear Diagrams to Solve Questions

    This way, you can draw a family tree where you can place the people of the same generation at the same level and the whole diagram will be in the form of the family tree. It is the quick way to solve these questions accurately.

    Code questions in Blood Relations

    In these questions, blood relations are defined by symbols and codes, for instance, +,-,*,/. You have to analyze the relation based on code mentioned –

    We have to analyze the relation based on these codes –

    If A+B refers to A is B’s husband

    A/B refers to A is B’s sister

    A*B refers to A is B’s son

    What is the relation of F with P in F*B+C/P?

    This way, you should start solving the question from right to left or left to right. This question has been solved from right to left. Mention each person’s gender clearly. This way, F is P’s nephew. Hence, P is the uncle or aunt of F and it is not possible to state anything.

    Don’t Assume Gender

    Don’t assume any person’s gender in the question which is just based on names. For instance –

    Hitesh is Mithilesh’s brother and Mithilesh is Suresh’s brother. Who is Suresh for Hitesh?

    Use the explanation above in this way –

    Hitesh (m) => Mithilesh (m) => Suresh

    In this example, whether Suresh is male or female not known. Hence, Suresh could be the sister or brother of Hitesh. Please keep in mind that person’s gender cannot be defined on person’s name. This information should definitely support person’s gender.

    Here are some of the unsolved practice questions

    1. There are 8 family members – M, N, P, Q, R, S, T and U. This family has three couples. Along with their children, they live in three different cities – Ranchi, Chandigarh, and Delhi, but not in same order. Q is the mom of M & R. M is T’s uncle and S’s father. U’s spouse lives in Ranchi. U is N’s only sister-in-law. Who is P’s daughter-in-law? S neither lives with her aunt U nor in Chandigarh.

    Who is Q’s husband among them?

    • U
    • P
    • N
    • Cannot be determined
    • None of them
    1. Husband of Sulekha is the only son of Nandini’s mom.
    2. Nandini’s husband and Sulekha’s brother are cousins.

    What is the relationship between Sulekha and Nandini?

    • 1 is sufficient and 2 is not.
    • 2 is sufficient alone while 2 only is not sufficient.
    • Either 2 or 1 is sufficient
    • Both of them not sufficient
    • Both are sufficient

    Points to Remember

    • Focus only on those points that provide maximum and definite details.
    • When it comes to concluding the relationship between two persons, you should be varied of the person’s gender who is discussed because there are chances of mistake when you assume the gender of the person that is not mentioned in the question or that cannot be collected from the information mentioned.
    • Read questions with care and identify the people between whom relation can be established. You may possibly relate yourself to the character given so it can be simple to understand.

    Final Thoughts

    We hope you’ve liked this post and you would better understand the concept of logical reasoning blood relation with the questions above and improve your score in the reasoning section. If you are still confused, revert back to us.

  • TNPSC Group 2A Non-Interview Posts Syllabus 2017

    The Public Service Commission was established by the British Government in 1923 to determine the payment structure of Indian Civil Service. The Commission addressed the Indianization rate of the Indian Police and Indian Civil Service. It also determined the series in which Indian Civil Service would be made in 15 years with 50% of Indian membership and the same in 25 years for the Police in India.  It was responsible basically for recruitment and exercise control on the services. The Government of Punjab and Madras has proposed to establish their Public Service Commission due to the discretionary powers that are left.

    The Madras Service Commission was established as per the Act of Madras Legislature in the year 1929. The Madras Presidency had great honor as the only state in the country to have the first Service Commission in India. Madras Service Commission was established with 3 Members, along with the Chairman. After states’ reorganization in 1957, various Commissions were established. It became the Madras Public Service Commissions in 1957 headquartered in Madras. In the 1970s, Madras was renamed to Tamil Nadu. Hence, Madras Public Service Commission also renamed to Tamil Nadu Public Service Commission or TNPSC.

    1. What are Keyword Driven and Data driven Framework?

    In Data driven Framework, Test Data is aligned and kept aside Test Scripts, when Test Case logic is held inside.

    On the flip side, Table-Driven or Keyword-Driven Framework needs creation of keywords and data tables, along with using test automation tool to execute them.

    1. Why Use AutoIt Tool?

    We often get stuck due to some barriers like window-based popup, while testing through Selenium. But Selenium supports only web-based tools and it cannot handle it. So, we have to use AutoIt tool with Selenium script. It can easily handle window-based apps as it is powered by VBScript.

    • Enables Powerful and Simple DOM-based testing,
    • Supports several languages, including C#, Ruby, Java, Python etc.
    1. Difference between Selenium WebDriver and Selenium RC

    Selenium WebDriver – It uses built-in support of your browser to use it.

    Selenium RC – It adds JavaScript function on the browsers while loading webpage.

    1. Why WebDriver is better than Selenium RC?
    • Great API
    • No need to run Selenium RC Server
    • Faster and native automation – Less prone to browser configuration and error
    • Fast Tests with Headless HTMLUnitDriver access
    1. How to Handle Dynamic Elements?

    Ans – We can manage Dynamic Element by creating relative xpath.

    1. What are the Checkpoints or Assertions used in Script?
    • Validations against element,
    • Is page title the same as expected,
    • Is text given on the page
    1. What is Actions Class?

    In WebDriver, Actions Class controls the mouse’s actions.

    1. Difference between @BeforeClass and @BeforeMethod

    @BeforeClass is executed before each class.

    @BeforeMethod is executed before each @Test method.

    1. What is Object Repository?

    It is a very important part of any UI Automation process. A tester can store every object that can be helpful in scripts in several centralized areas instead of getting them sprinkled all around the Test scripts. It is not all about WET. We can use it in any UI automation.

    1. What about OOPS Concepts?
    • Abstraction
    • Encapsulation
    • Inheritance
    • Polymorphism
    1. What about Inheritance?

    As the name suggests, it inherits any class feature with some connections between interface and class.

    Selenium WebDriver Interview Questions for Highly Experienced

    1. What is IntelliJ?

    It is an IDE to write faster and better Selenium code. We can use it as an alternative to Eclipse and Java bean.

    1. How to Customize TestNG Report?

    There are two different ways to customize it –

    • Through IReporter Interface
    • Through ITestListener interface
    1. What is Listeners in WebDriver?

    As the name suggests, Listeners “listen” to the selenium script event and work accordingly. With Listeners, we can customize TestNG logs or reports. TestNG Listeners and WebDriver Listeners are two main kind of listeners.

    1. What Java API is applied to Generate PDF Reports?

    We need Java API IText to generate PDF logs

    1. What type of Listeners used in TestNG?
    • IAnnotationTransformer
    • IConfigurationListener
    • IConfigurable
    • IAnnotationTransformer2
    • IHookable
    • IExecutionListener
    • IMethodInterceptor
    • IReporter
    • ITestListener
    • ISuiteListener
    • IInvokedMethodListener
    • IInvokedMethodListener2
    1. What is desired capability? How to use it in Selenium?

    It is a series of value or key pairs which consists of browser information, such as browser version, name of browser, path to the browser driver etc. to find out the behavior of browser.

    In Selenium, it is helpful to configure the Selenium WebDriver instance and used when it comes to run test cases on any browser with various versions of operating systems.

    1. When to use AutoIT?

    Selenium is used to automate web applications on various browsers. But AutoIT is used to handle non-HTML popup and window UI in the application.

    1. Which API to use in Database Testing?

    In Selenium WebDriver, we have to use Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) API for Database testing to execute SQL commands.

    1. Why Use Session Handling with Selenium?

    When it comes to work with Selenium, we should use Session Handling because the WedDriver need to work with the browser every time to execute the command in test execution. There are chances that someone else may start execution of any other script before the existing execution finishes in the same browser type and in the same machine, during execution. To avoid these instances, Session Handling is required.

    1. What are the Pros of Git Hub in Selenium?

  • What To Write In Subject Line When Emailing Resume For Freshers?

    subject line

    In this digital world, email is your first line of contact for networking, job search, and other business communications. With over 89 million emails sent on daily basis in business world, it is even harder than ever to get your email read.

    Employers receive hundreds of emails every day. Hence, a subject line can mean a difference between an email which gets noticed and read and the one which goes direct to trash, without even opening it by the HR managers. Along with communicating what you expect and who you are, your email is also a marketing tool which helps you to stand out and show off your qualification.

    Your subject line should be professional, clear, and concise, to ensure that your emails are read.

    Why Do You Need a Subject Line?

    Along with your name and email address, the subject line is another important thing your employer will notice in their mailbox.  Since email can contain advertisements, irrelevant information, and even virus and spyware, people are often reluctant to check all of the emails in their inbox. The choose emails mainly by looking at the sender’s email and subject line.

    If you skip the subject section, your email is more likely to be deleted or discarded as spam.  According to the studies, 33% of the decisions on whether to open an email or not are based on subject lines. When you send your resume through email, it is more likely that your recipient doesn’t know your name. So, a subject line is the only way to get your resume noticed and make a solid first impression.

    When there is a tough competition for just one opening, it’s time to stand out of hundreds of resumes being sent every day. Sending your resume through email to a hiring manager or company is the most effective option to make way to an interview.

    Be sure to do it right as it is the very first contact you will make with your potential employer. When companies receiving thousands of resumes on email, here’s how to write the attractive subject lines along with some best examples.

    How to Write Subject Line which Works?

    The Most Important thing => Be Professional

    It goes without saying that both your email address and the subject line should look professional. Avoid casual phrases or words like “What’s Up?”, “Hey”, “Cheers” etc. in your subject line. Instead, it should be polite yet professional.

    In addition, your email address should also look professional. Email addresses like imcoolbuddy1234@000.com, cutiepie.500@hmail.com, hottie@mail.com etc. are the major turn-offs to hiring managers.

    Mention why you are contacting them

    Your subject line should be interesting and relevant to get your email noticed. Add keywords regarding your purpose to write the email to make it relevant.

    For example, if you are writing an email for job search, mention which post you are applying for, along with your name, in the subject line.

    If you have a reference from someone, include their name in your subject line. It is quite very difficult to get noticed by email. Consider subject line as your opportunity to get noticed and make recipient want to get more details about you.

    Job Title

    If you are sending email for recruitment, add job title in your subject line. This way, the employer may get an insight on what job position you are applying for. A hiring manager may have to fill multiple positions. So, it will be convenient to them to get the glance of the job position you have applied for.

    If they have applied an automated filter on their email, it will be helpful to them to find your email by mentioning job title. With having right subject line, your application can get placed in the right folder that can be seen on time. You can also add your name. If you have reference, mention “referred by” and their name.

    Keep it Simple and Short

    The more specific your subject line, the easier will it be to categorize your email faster for the recipient and respond well. You should be as concise as possible. Lengthy subject lines are also a major turn-off as they could lose important information you want to provide.

    They may check your email on their mobile devices where only 25 to 30 characters are displayed. When reading on computer, there is much more space to see the subject. First few words should be straight to the point. Leave extra details like your experience and credentials at the end.

    Proofread

    After writing your email, don’t forget to proofread it and its subject line before sending it. Subject line can make lasting impression. So, be sure that you have written subject line which is free of errors and clear.

  • How to Download IEEE Papers for free from IEEE Xplore and Sci-Hub without membership?

    How to Download IEEE Papers for free from IEEE Xplore and Sci-Hub without membership?

    Several students have this question in their mind over the years. They often look for IEEE papers and journals for their IEEE projects.

    IEEE or Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers is the leading technical institute for computer science, electronics, electrical, and all other fields and domains. There are many roles and objectives of IEEE but they are classified widely in three main categories.

    1. Educational Activities
    2. Publications
    3. Standards Development

    Here, our main focus in IEEE is its Publications aspect. IEEE is known to organize several conferences across the world where they present the latest technology concepts as papers and they are often published in publications and journals. These papers are widely regarded as IEEE Papers.

    So basically, each IEEE paper is about a latest technology idea, innovation or possibility. As these IEEE papers are published in different publications, these have great technical standing. One can easily access most of these publications online using a digital library, IEEE Xplore.

    What is an IEEE Project?

    IEEE Project is a project which conveys the core technology idea of the institute through IEEE paper. IEEE Papers are published after years of research. For a final year project, it is virtually impossible for engineering students (whether BE or ME) to access the IEEE papers and journals.

    Since the possibility of getting the whole IEEE paper is almost rare for the students to complete their project, they can, at least, take a part of paper. On the other hand, the scope of getting a single paper is sometimes too small for a final year project. In that case, a student can take multiple IEEE papers as base papers.

    When it comes to choosing between an IEEE reference paper and IEEE base paper, students are often confused. As the name implies, IEEE base paper is the one which contains the fundamental idea of a project. On the other side, reference paper is based on some of the smaller aspects of a project. Generally, a project consists of several reference papers and one base paper. According to the type of IEEE project, reference papers may or may not be used.

    How to Download IEEE Papers for free?

    If it’s your final year in an engineering college, you may certainly have a project to complete. For this, you need an IEEE journal and conference paper as a base paper or some reference papers.

    To download IEEE papers for free, you need to access IEEE Xplore digital library. For each paper to download, you either have to pay $33 for each base paper or get a membership. Or you have to rely on the institutional services on your college for IEEE papers free download. Students who are unable to access this facility may rely on their friends or their professors from another college.

    Well, there are different ways to get IEEE research papers for free without membership. In this guide, we will share all the possible means to download IEEE research papers.

    About Sci-Hub

    Sci-Hub is a one-stop online search engine to provide access to over 58,000,000 academic journals and papers for direct download. Every day, new research papers are uploaded to be accessed through the proxies of educational institutions.

    The Sci-Hub Project was founded by Alexandra Elbakyan, a Kazakh graduate, in the year 2011. The project was started with the intent to break the barriers of knowledge like paid memberships. Everyone should be able to gain knowledge despite their income and affordability.

    In 2015, Elsevier, an academic publisher filed a suit against Sci-Hub in New York City for copyright infringement. Due to this succeeding lawsuit, the original sci-hub.org domain suffered a huge loss. Following the initial loss, Sci-Hub started several domains, though some of them have been restricted in some countries.

    Despite such controversies, the site has spread its wings in both developing and developed countries, including India, Indonesia, Iran, Pakistan, China, Brazil, Russia, and the United States. According to Elbakyan’s data released in 2016, the usage of Sci-Hub is soaring high with the large number of downloads from the US and various countries that fall in the European Union.

    Among several other sites offering free access to research papers, Sci-Hub became the first which automated the “bypassing paywalls” process. The Sci-Hub website provides easy access to the papers for free without membership. The website served up to 200,000 requests per day later this year, in February 2016, which was raised up by 80000 requests per day on average before the original URL “sci-hub.org” blocked in the year 2015.

    How to Download IEEE Papers from Sci-Hub?

    With the help of Sci-Hub, you can download any research paper absolutely for free. To download IEEE paper, you just need to have a stable internet connection. Here are the ways to download IEEE paper to read.

    1. First of all, you have to visit the official IEEE Xplore website and search for IEEE Xplore papers free download.

    3. If it is your base paper, go to sci-hub.io or sci-hub.cc.how to download ieee papers free from ieee explore
    4. Paste the copied URL and click “Open” to access the document.
    5. Replace the xxxxxx in this URL with copied number – http://ieeexplore.ieee.org.sci-hub.io/xpl/articleDetails.jsp?arnumber=xxxxxxx
    6.  It will take you to the download page.
    7. All you need to enter Captcha code and click on “Download” button. ieee3
    8. Click the download link directly. download ieee papers from ieee explorer

    Sometimes, you may not access sci-hub.org in your country. This way, you may install Proxmate add-on on Firefox or Chrome. You may also access some mirror websites for sci-hub.org, such as –

    • sci-hub.io
    • sci-hub.cc
    • sci-hub.bz

    If you still cannot access the mirror websites, try using proxy to access those as they are banned in Russia and other countries.

    Alternative Method:

    • Log on to IEEE Xplore website and look for the paper and click on the name of paper to visit the page.
    • Copy the page URL, for example –

    http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/xpl/login.jsp?reload=true&tp=&arnumber=6848769&url=http%3A%2F%2Fieeexplore.ieee.org%2Fiel7%2F69%2F4358933%2F06848769.pdf%3Farnumber%3D6848769

    • Modify the URL. Add sci-hub.io just after ieee.org. For example –

    http://ieeexplore.ieee.org.scihub.io/xpl/login.jsp?reload=true&tp=&arnumber=6848769&url=http%3A%2F%2Fieeexplore.ieee.org%2Fiel7%2F69%2F4358933%2F06848769.pdf%3Farnumber%3D6848769

    Final Thoughts

    Sci-Hub is the best way to download IEEE research papers for free without having any membership. It has totally broken the barrier of subscription fee for the students to help in their final year project. We hope you’ve enjoyed reading this guide and these tips would help you to download IEEE papers without membership.
