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
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.

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.

Question 5: Where Lord Rama would have celebrated his 'First Diwali'? People
will start thinking of Ayodya, Mitila [Janaki's place], Lanka etc...
But the logic is, Diwali was a celebrated as a mark of Lord Krishna Killing
Narakasura. In Dusavataar, Krishnavathaar comes after Raamavathaar.
So, Lord Rama would not have celebrated the Diwali At all!
Question 6: 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. ........
