Questions asked in interview are getting tougher and tougher

April 18th, 2014

Have a look the latest I.T. Consultant's exam:

Q1. How do you put a giraffe into a refrigerator?
(Answer: Open the refrigerator, put in the giraffe, and close the door. )

This question tests whether you tend to do simple things in an overly complicated way.

Q2. How do you put an elephant into a refrigerator? (and No, it is not "Open the refigerator, put in the elephant and close the refrigerator?")
(Answer: Open the refrigerator, take out the giraffe, put in the elephant and close the door.) This tests your ability to think through the repercussions of your previous actions.

Q3. The Lion King is hosting an animal conference. All the animals attend, except one. Which animal does not attend?
(Answer: The elephant. The elephant is in the refrigerator.) This tests your memory.

Okay, even if you did not answer the first three questions correctly, you still have one more chance to show your true analytical abilities.

Q4. There is a river you must cross but it is used by crocodiles, and you do not have a boat. How do you manage it?
(Answer: You just jump into the river and swim across. All the crocodiles are attending the Lion King's Meeting.)

Knight turned the machine off and on.

The machine worked.

Saying that Java is nice because it works on every OS is like saying that anal sex is nice because it works on every gender.

When your hammer is C++, everything begins to look like a thumb.

If you put a million monkeys at a million keyboards, one of them will eventually write a Java program. The rest of them will write Perl programs.

A Cobol programmer made so much money doing Y2K remediation that he was able to have himself cryogenically frozen when he died. One day in the future, he was unexpectedly resurrected. When he asked why he was unfrozen, he was told: "It's the year 9999 – and you know Cobol."

What is your best programmer joke?
When I teach introductory computer science courses, I like to lighten the mood with some humor. Having a sense of fun about the material makes it less frustrating and more memorable, and it’s even motivating if the joke requires some technical understanding to ‘get it’! I’ll start off with a couple of my favorites: Q: How do you tell an introverted computer scientist from an extroverted computer scientist? A: An extroverted computer scientist lo…

Fortunately, the universe of possible speculations is so vast, it simply doesn’t matter if someone else beats you to any particular one; there will always be another to ask for the next dance. Bide your time, and make your move only when all of the above is on your side.
