### If you were asked to unload a 747 full of jelly beans, what would you do?

Assuming they are loose jellybeans, and their unloading needs to be managed rather than just dumped on the tarmac ... Start by phoning the people at the other end, of the process. They managed to load an entire plane with jellybeans! Any group that can figure out how to fill a plane with jellybeans may be a big help in undoing this mess. Less

Put an ad on craigslist "Free jellybeans - won't last. Hurry!". They'll all be gone in no time. Less

I would do it. The question is not "how" you would do it.

### a family have 2 kids. if you have seen 1 girl , what is the proberbl the other kids is a boy

chainsaw is right - the question is subtle. Outcome space is (b1,b2), (b1,g2), (g1,b2) and (g1,g2). Now - if you HAVE SEEN the girl (specific girl let's say girl 1) that removes outcomes (b1,b2)&amp;(b1,g2) leaving us with p=1/2 of choice between outcomes (g1,b2) and (g1,g2). If you KNOW (was told) that one is a girl, but do not know which one, than only (b1,b2) is removed from outcome space and the chance is 2/3. Less

answer is 1/2 - the question is very subtle...

isnt it 1/2? BG (boy and girl) and GB (girl and boy) are the same. order is not important. or am i missing something? Less

### Why are pot hole covers round and not square?

It makes sense to make them round because they can not fall through if ever accidentally uncovered. If squeare =&gt; the lid falls in diagonally. Less

So that if someone mistakenly drops it in on its side it won't fall into the hole. A square cover dropped mistakenly diagonally on its side would fall in. Less

Its because the round shape causes the impact of cars and trucks to be distributed evenly. If it was square, the impact would be highest at the corners causing the cover to break. Less

### Case study round with 30 minutes time is a bit of a challenge.

when was your AMCAT test conducted ??

Guys! If I tell you my identity then what's the point of anonymity!

Hey.. Actually the purpose of asking about the date was when could I expect the interview call as I have already cleared AMCAT exam.So that info could be helpful. Less

### 1 million card applications. \$1 per application cost to do employment verification. 96% pass verification and get a card. 4% fail and do not get cards. Given average profits on cardholders in good standing, and average losses on accounts that default, find the % of denied cardholders that would have to default in order to justify the \$1 per application verification cost .

Anymore info given? I think you'd either need to know the percentage of cardholders in good standing, or the percentage of cardholders in bad standing. Less

This appears to be a trick question that makes you think they want to know the break-even point. However: how can someone default on a credit card that they were "denied" and never issued? Less

Its hypothetical - IF they were given the card and IF they defaulted on it... how many of them would have to default in order for the losses from their accounts to justify the \$1/application cost of rejecting them. Less

### How many unique handshakes if each person in a group of 10 give handshakes out to each and every other individual. (a) 100 (b) 50 (c) 45 (d) 20 (e) 10

true, or 9+8+7+...+2+1

None of those answers are correct. The follow-up question should be are we assuming that each person is only using 1 hand? For example, if everyone is only giving handshakes left to left, or left to right or right to right or right to left? Granted left to right and right to left would be awkward. Less

45. Imagine it as a polygon of side 10. Or draw out triangle, square, pentagon, and see the pattern yourself, if you don't know the algorithm. Less

### Hoeveel katten zijn er in Nederland?

Waarom vraag je dit? Wil je het aantal katers en poezen weten? Wil je weten welke katten als huisdier geregistreerd zijn? Of wil je weten hoeveel katten in een asiel verblijven? Wil je ook het aantal wilde, loslopende katten weten? Less

Te weinig

Analytisch en stapsgewijs denken. en vanuit een framework proberen te denken

### Are you willing to work 80 hours a week?

I just got hired there as a bra, easily willing to work the 80 hours. Never saw a company that treats you with so much respect and trust right out of the gate. Also spend a lot of money per employee in technology which most people don't know and don't care about. I know and appreciate it as even if a company has the money, most won't spend it. Deloitte realizes their people are their biggest asset. Less

It depends on a person to person - if a resource is efficient and having skill to automate, the 16 hour work for a normal resource can be done in less than 8 hours ! Less

No, I am not interested in working for a company that doesn't value life/work balance. Thank you for your time and good day. Less

### You get an hour to prepare for a case study - and delivering your ideas on a white board. After the hour is up - you present your case to a manager. The case study was not "difficult" but rather lengthy. I did not have enough time to finish everything I would have liked to. Be prepared to get your most valid points out before diving into the details - and read the entire case study before starting. Some important information lies at the end of the case study document.

in a short time presentation the base of the topic are most imprtent then it's whole explanation,and every topic is start from a small point i.e the mening of that presentation title. Less
