 25 horses in a race. 5 horses can run as a group. what's the minimum # of runs required to find the fastest horse.2 AnswersI think 5. Split the horses into 5 groups of 5 then compare the time of the winners of each group. If time comparison is not allowed, then I'd say 6 races i.e. get all the winners to run one last race.Here is a different version of the problem but the answer is here - http://www.programmerinterview.com/index.php/puzzles/25-horses-3-fastest-5-races-puzzle/

### IT Consultant at FDM Group was asked...

 Three things occur at once. A baby is crying, a tea kettle is whistling, and the phone is ringing. In which order will you take of the problems and why?3 AnswersTake the kettle off so you can hear the caller once you answer the phone. Do these both and you've removed the likely causes of the baby's crying.Check on the baby in case its a life/death situation then pick up the call because it could be an emergency then deal with the kettle afterwards since its highly unlikely that it could be a lif/death situationTurn off the kettle, attend to the baby, and let the phone go to voice mail. Turn off the kettle first because it would be too risky to hold the baby near a stove in operation with steam coming from the kettle. Attend to the baby because once you have removed environmental risks, it is the most critical situation and most immediately resolvable. If the phone cannot be answered before the baby's crying has been resolved, delegate the task of answering to voice mail, and then answer the voice mail at the earliest possible chance.

 What is your salary range?3 AnswersIn looking at the reviews and interview section of glassdoor, most people felt the salary was to low so when I gave the average salary range for the area as my salary range, I felt it was outside the range of HR. I went that route because I am coming from out of state and needed salary good enough to cover living expenses for my family.May I ask what salary range you were asking for?A: "Taking into account my skills and expertise I am thinking high range"

 None. HR could not answer ONE question.3 AnswersHow much money were you asking for?10% more than I currently make. Very reasonable considering 20% is common. The position also required a lot more in terms of support for 4 campuses and 24 hour and weekend on call. What did the HR person offer as a benefit or highlight of joining NYP? That Dr. Oz works there -- not kidding you.You can look at the salaries for IS Project Lead here ( there are 7 posted). I think that should give you an idea of what the pay range for the position is.

### Information Technology at United Nations was asked...

 What would be your ideal job/position if you could freely choose?2 AnswersWhile this is a common question in some cultures, it is not that common in the UN and thus can be a surprise. In particular this is not a question related to the fairly standardized competency based interviewing process. Also this is a challenging question, because there is no clear answer and the candidate never really knows what the hiring manager would be looking for.
