Why are manhole covers round?


Interview Answer

1 Answer


There are many answers to this, but for some people these types of questions can seem crazy! They are useful though, as they are designed to see how well you respond to a stressful situation and what your creative thinking process is like. If you're worried about brainteasers, there are plenty of books out there with the standard ones (how many ping pong balls could fit in an airplane? If you have a 3 gal bucket and a 5 gal bucket, how can you get EXACTLY 4 gal of liquid?, etc)

My answer? Because it is impossible for them to fall into the manholes.
