Impressive Interview Questions and Answers

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.'

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 if one morning you woke up & found that you were pregnant.

- I will be very excited and take an off,
To celebrate with my husband.
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 asked

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?

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 centre of this table where you 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 you get to know that this being the central point of this table. Then, he answers quickly,
Sir, you are not likely to ask any more question,
As it was the last question that you promised to ask.....
And hence, he was selected
As because of his quick-wittedness.

This is What Interviewer expects from the Interviewee.
