Dear Renu

Please always keep in mind management always concentrate how can you be useful to the organisation. Therefore, the centre point of all questions will always depends the nature of business of the respective company. AND it is always not necessary that management (for Pvt company, more often)  will ask only company law questions, they may ask the questions about which they expect from candidate.

regards- sudhir
