      I am posting some questions which are very frequent in an interview. Some of these are really very very popular. The most popular question is : "Tell Me about yourself". This is a very common question in an interview and decides the course of you interview.



      Interviewers ask lot of questions. Some questions are comforting, and some or unrelated sometimes absurd too. I heard people answer questions like,tell me what is the length of 23 coach train? Or who is the husband of shivaji?- I mean someone asked it.

      Some of them are to lighten the moment and some for testing the speed of the switch in you.

      You may joke them off. But the more serious questions will be looking something like the ones below. you have to choose to answer appropriately.
