I was asked a pretty straight forward brain teaser during my last phone interview, which they said they don't normally do, but because I put that I was a logical problem solver on my resume they couldn't resist the opportunity to. It was the following "There are 20 different socks of two types in a drawer in a completely dark room. What is the minimum number of socks you should grab to ensure you have a matching pair?"

3 is the answer when the probability is 50% for either color.

"20 DIFFERENT socks of two type" In my opinion It's a brain teaser not a probability question. The answer is none. There is no sock alike, so you can't get a pair.

3 is the answer no matter what... there are only 2 types, if you grab 3, you must have 1 of one type and 2 of the other

I wasn't asked one.

Just some basic technical questions; like most good companies they rely on how you handle the question and discuss it, rather than throwing you impossible problems. They’re quite nice really.
