I believe this post by the Seattle Interview Coach is meant to be serious and helpful, but it’s just as humorous as it is informative. Some examples:
You are shrunk to the height of a nickel and your mass is proportionally reduced so as to maintain your original density. You are then thrown into an empty glass blender. The blades will start moving in 60 seconds. What do you do?
You have five pirates, ranked from 5 to 1 in descending order. The top pirate has the right to propose how 100 gold coins should be divided among them. But the others get to vote on his plan, and if fewer than half agree with him, he gets killed. How should he allocate the gold in order to maximize his share but live to enjoy it? (Hint: One pirate ends up with 98 percent of the gold.)
Design an evacuation plan for San Francisco.
What’s 2 to the power of 64?
How many piano tuners are there in the world?
I’m assuming that Google is looking for creative answers to some of these because honestly how many people know how many piano tuners there are in the world?!?
