QA Analyst Interview Boston, MA

You have 3 light bulbs in the attic and 3 switches in the

  basement. All of the lights are currently off. Each switch in the basement is wired to one light in the attic. With only making 1 trip to the basement, and one trip to the attic, how can you correctly identify which switch goes to which light?

Interview Answer

1 Answer


Sit in the basement and turn two switches on. Leave them on for 1 minute, turn one off and go right up to the attic. One light will be on, one bulb will be warm and off, the other bulb will be cool and off.
