Every person goes through a stage in life where he/she will have to face an interview. Over the years, the interviews have evolved to an unpredictable process where the companies are finding new ways to find what they need from the participants. And gone are the days where candidates had to be sound only technically. Because, these days every guy in a street holds either a bachelor or an engineering degree. So, it is all about how smarter you are even if you don’t have any knowledge on what you are going to do.
There are platforms such as Glassdoor where you can go and have a look at the top interview questions asked by the leading Multi National Organizations in the recent times. Here is our list for you.

The giant randomly puts a white or black hat on each dwarf. No dwarf can see their own hat. The giant tells all the dwarfs that he will ask each dwarf, starting with the tallest, for the color of his hat. If the dwarf answers incorrectly, the giant will kill the dwarf. Each dwarf can hear the previous answers, but cannot hear when a dwarf is killed. The dwarves are given an opportunity to collude before the hats are distributed. What strategy should be used to kill the fewest dwarfs, and what is the minimum number of dwarfs that can be saved with this strategy?
