Unexpected tough Interview Puzzle Questions with Great Answers

I am separating the 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 of you.

Lateral Thinking Interview Puzzle Question

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 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 a question is asked to you?
