Citi Financial institution Interview Expertise (On-Campus)


Overview: Citi Financial institution visited VJTI, Mumbai for on-campus placements. The factors for making use of was 60% or combination with no energetic backlogs and all branches have been allowed.

On-line Take a look at: Near 350 college students utilized for the corporate. The net take a look at was carried out on the eleventh of September on AMCAT. The net take a look at had 4 sections:

  • Logical Potential(14 MCQs in 14 Minutes)
  • Quantitative Potential(16 MCQs in 16 Minutes)
  • Pc Programming(25 MCQs in 35 Minutes)
  • Automata Professional(2 coding questions in 60 Minutes)

The MCQs have been fairly fundamental however accuracy was the important thing right here and the questions needed to be answered in sequence(i.e switching between questions or sections was restricted) therefore as soon as a query is submitted, you can’t come again to it, additionally you can’t randomly resolve any query within the ongoing part. I used to be capable of resolve virtually all of the MCQs

The coding part had one straightforward query and different easy-to-moderate questions. Everybody acquired a distinct set of questions from a pool of questions. Following are my questions:

Query 1: Output “N” traces within the method proven beneath for a given integer N. Instance if N=4, then the sample shall be:


One needed to write the whole code for printing the sample and never simply the operate. I used to be capable of resolve the query utterly and all of the take a look at instances handed.

Query 2: Rat in Maze drawback. A mouse is positioned in a maze. There’s a enormous chunk of cheese someplace within the maze. The maze has NXM dimensions the place 0 represents a wall, 1 represents the trail the place the mouse can transfer and 9 represents the chunk of cheese. The mouse begins on the high left nook at (0,0). Write an algorithm to output 1 if the mouse can attain the chunk, else output 0.

I may resolve this query partially and my code handed 16/32 take a look at instances.


  • Among the different frequent questions normally requested are grey code, permutations and so forth(can check with different experiences on gfg).
  • One can utterly clear this spherical by fixing one coding query. 

Near 75 college students have been shortlisted for additional interviews.
