The question about the triangle classification seemed simple enough but what they were really looking for was to determine flaws in the requirement specification. Was the specfication correct given how it's going to be used? Is it what the customer wanted? Does it offer value to our market in relation to our competitor? What type of platform do we expect it to run on? Any localization issues? Accessability? The most important things to show for SDET is that you have the ability to take a step back from the narrow problem at focus and see if it fits into the larger picture of the project and what it's trying to acheive for the customer.
