If you want to crack this round than you should practice some good numbers of basic to standard puzzles.
For Me, first questions was one puzzle followed by 2 puzzle questions. Here I am shaing the list of all questions asked in this round by Interviewer.

12) Write SQL query to select employer name from table, group by department number, and SSN= 24235?

Basically, puzzle solving skills has to be good and basic technical knowledge was required. I was selected for Sapient Third Round (i.e HR Round)

HR Personal Interview 3rd Round
He was really focussed on my CV. So always justify what is written in your CV. Don't Say I don't remember it now but I have done it in past, if you don't remember then don't write in CV. I mentioned in my CV - HTML, CSS, MySQL, JAVA project, Data Structures. So they asked me the questions on each Skill

1) Tell me About Yourself (He expected me to prepare a solid answer for this question, so prepare for it)
2) Why Sapient?
3) Why should I hire you, not others? What makes you unique?
4) Write the HTML code to change background colour, insert table and change its colour. Modify the code with CSS.
5) Write the program to swap two numbers.
6) Write the program to swap the two numbers without using third variable.
7) I made Info graphic CV that helped me to impress them, it made me stand out of crowd.
8) In Java you have 3 classes, Employer, subordinate and manager. How will you establish IS-A i.e. Inheritance Relationship between the three classes.
9) What is the difference between C and JAVA (OOPS)?
10) What are the files created after compiling C programs and Java Programs? What is the major difference between them?
11) What is my proudest moment in life?

I believe the attitude with which you respond matters, check on your conversational and interaction skills, as they play an important part for selection, be confident in what you know and tell clearly what you don't know , don't guess or give wrong answers instead.
All the Best!!
