# HSBC aptitude placement paper

Hi Friends,

HSBC doesn't visit our college campus for placements but I was quite keen on getting a job in this company. Somehow I managed to appear for the placement interview as my sister works there. There was a written test on aptitude which I wrote. The result is still awaited. I hope I get through. In the meanwhile, here are some questions which I faced at the test.

A and B play a game of dice between them. The dice consist of colors on their faces (instead of numbers). When the dice are thrown, A wins if both show the same color; otherwise B wins. One dice has 4 red face and 2 blue faces. How many red and blue faces should the other dice have for both the to players have same chances of winning?

a) 3 red and 3 blue faces b) 2 red and remaining blue c) 6 red and 0 blue d) 4 red and remaining blue
