Tough Interview Puzzles with Great Answers

Tough Interview Puzzles with Great Answers
I found these questions on internet and found that answers to these questions is quite interesting and brilliant. It definitely shows the "Out of Box Thinking" of the person being interviewed.  I am separating answers of the candidates who got selected from questions and putting them at the end to give time to you to think upon the answers in case these questions are being asked from you.
Question 1:
"What will you do if I run away with your sister?"
This is quite unexpected question being asked in interview. Think how will you answer this question?

Question 2:
Interviewer (to a student girl candidate) - What if one morning you woke up found that you were pregnant?

Again very weird question asked from unmarried student girl candidate.
Question 3:
Interviewer: He ordered a cup of coffee for the candidate. Coffee, arrived and was kept before the candidate, then he asked "What is before you?"

Candidate: Instantly replied "Tea" and got selected. Think Why?

Most of the people will immediately answer coffee but one need to think out of box to justify a different answer.

Question 4:
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...

Question 5:
The interviewer asked 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."

What will you answer if such question is asked to you?

Question 6:
Where Lord Rama would have celebrated his "First Diwali"?

People will start thinking of Ayodya, Mithila [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!

This is what Interviewer expects from the Interviewee...

"THINK OUTSIDE OF THE BOX and try to answer these question yourself. There is no fixed answer to these questions but way of thinking to answer these question. 

Here is the answer which were given by the candidates who got selected when asked these questions.

Question 1:
The candidate who was selected answered " I will not get a better match for my sister than you, sir."

Question 2:

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

Question 3:
(You know how and why did he say "TEA" when he knows very well that coffee was kept before him?.

Answer: The question was "What is before you U? (-alphabet). Reply was
"TEA" T (- alphabet).

Question 4:

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 5:
Candidate confidently put one of his finger at some point at the table and said that this was the central point at the table. Interviewer asked "how did you decide that this is the central point of this table?", then he answers quickly that "Sir you are not supposed to ask any more question, as it was the last question as you promised...

And hence, he was selected as because of his quick wittiness.
