Hi Pk,
Interviewer: He ordered a cup of coffee for the candidate. Coffee arrived kept before the candidate, then he asked what is before you? (Here he mentioned alphabet 'U')
Candidate: Instantly replied "Tea" (Alphabet 'T')
He got selected.
You know how and why did he say "TEA" when he knows very well that coffee was kept before.
(Answer: The question was "What is before you (U - alphabet)
Reply was "TEA" ( T - alphabet)
Alphabet "T" was before Alphabet "U"
I hope now you understood....
With Warm Regards,

These are the questions which can be found in exercises in Lateral Thinking. Usually, no interviewer asks such questions.
instead, if any of the readers can contribute responses to questions like," Tell about yourself", what are your weaknesses" , that will immensely benefit. :lol:

thanks gayatri, understood the story of U & T. but is't stupid theory of question & ans. what normally child makes this fun. does it real happen in real interviews?
The questions were not complected or clearly matchs the answered you mentioned/ eg. man in car and one choice to select from old lady,friend or girl. The question should be how can man keep everybody happy & favor at same time at his sole discretion in given situation.
expecting some mature question/answers for time pass. . any way good fun too.
