Clever Questions Innovative Answers

Here is some of the clever questions and innovative answers that happened in an interview

Question 1:
You are driving along in your car on a wild, stormy night, it’s raining
heavily, when suddenly you pass by a bus stop, and you see three people
waiting for a bus:
An old lady who looks as if she is about to die. An old friend who once
saved your life. The perfect partner you have been dreaming about.
Which one would you choose to offer a ride to, knowing very well that
there could only be one passenger in your car?

This is a moral/ethical dilemma that was once actually used as part of a
job application.
* You could pick up the old lady, because she is going to die, and thus
you should save her first;
* or you could take the old friend because he once saved your life, and
this would be the perfect chance to ! pay him back.
* However, you may never be able to find your perfect mate again.
The candidate who was hired (out of 200 applicants) had no trouble
coming up with his answer. Guess what was his answer?
He simply answered:
"I would give the car keys to my Old friend and let him take the lady to
the hospital. I would stay behind and wait for the bus with the partner
of my dreams."
Sometimes, we gain more if we are able to give up our stubborn thought
limitations. Never forget to "Think Outside of the Box."


Question 2:
What will you do if I run away with your sister?"
The candidate who was selected answered " I will not get a better match
for my sister than you sir"

Question 3:
Interviewer (to a student girl candidate) – What is one morning you woke
up & found that you were pregnant.

Girl – I will be very excited and take an off, to celebrate with my
Normally an unmarried girl will be shocked to hear this, but she managed
it well. Why I should think it in the wrong way, she said later when


Question 4:
Interviewer: He ordered a cup of coffee for the candidate. Coffee
arrived kept before the candidate, then he asked what is before you?
Candidate: Instantly replied "Tea"
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"


Question 5:
The interviewer asked to the candidate "This is your last question of
the interview. Please tell me the exact position of the
center of this table where u have kept your files."
Candidate confidently put one of his finger at some point at the table
and told that this was the central point at the table. Interviewer asked
how did u get to know that this being the central point of this table,
then he answers quickly that sir u r not likely to ask any more
question, as it was the last question that u promised to ask.
And hence, he was selected as because of his quick-wittedness.
