 How do you measure 4 gallons with only a 5 gallon and a 3 gallon bucket?5 Answers1.Dump 3 gal into 5 gal 2. Fill 3 ga and empty into 5 gal again 3. This will leave 1 gal in the 3 gal 4. Dump the 5 gal 5.Add the 1 gal from the 3 gal to the 5 gal 6. Fill the 3 gal again 7. Dump the 3 gal into the 5 gal (where there is all ready 1 gal) 8. Now there are 4 gallons of water in the 5 gallon bucket.Shift some water from the 5 gallon bucket to 3 gallon bucket to make both the buckets have same amount of water. when both the buckets have same amount of water. That means both contain 4 gallons of water.From the full 5 gallon bucket, you get the 3 gallons needed to make the smaller bucket full. You now have 2 gallons remaining in the big bucket. Then you empty the 3 gallon bucket and drop the residual 2 gallons from the big one into it. Then you mark the 2 gallon level in the 3 gallon bucket. Now you can drop the two gallons back into the big bucket, then go by the mark to collect two more gallons in the small bucket and drop again into the big bucket, whence you obtain 2+2 = 4 gallons.Show More Responses1. Fill 5 gal bucket 2. Fill 3 gal using 5 gal. This leaves 2 gal in the gal bucket. 3. Empty 3 gal 4. Pour remaining 2 gal from 5 gal bucket into 3 gal bucket. 5. Fill 5 gal bucket 6. Fill up 3 gal bucket using 5 gal bucket. This will leave 4 gal in the 5 gal bucketFill both buckets with half of its total volume and combine the content of both :)

 You have eight golf balls with one slightly heavier than the rest and one leveling scale. What is the least number of times you can use the scale to figure out the heavier ball.2 AnswersTwo times.2 times: Weigh 3 vs. 3. If they weigh the same, it must be one of the two remaining golf balls, and you weigh once more to find out. If the 3v3 don't weigh the same, take the heavier three, and weigh two of them. If they're the same weight, it's the one ball you didn't weigh. If one is heavier, it's that ball. Voila.

 Nothing really...not much technical question. Most are with manual testing background. Manual testing is not a highly technical skill....2 AnswersApplied online as QA Analyst..process took about 5 weeks. Three consecutive phone interview then a face to face in location interview with 6 people and lasted 3 hours. For a Big company, they use a very old methodology...waterfall! Really? Interviewed by QA Director, team members(3) and two managers. Managers differ in opinion...younger one prefers automation testing and older one prefers manual(she looked very pissed before even talking to me...is it my look?)...no one seemed to be very up-to-date with testing process and usefulness of automation. For one single product EnterpriseRX, I was told they have about 20 members in QA Team in Moon,PA along with a offshore team and they need more!!!! Talk about employee productivity.... Sure, if you don't know anything but manual testing and follow waterfall method where all testing requirements are waited out till the end of cycle, right before the production. But overall the interviewers seemed very nice but reasonable impossible to impress and don't seem to know much out of the box. They only believe what they know. Anyways, good experience and an eye-opener for company I long admired and now with no regrets...got an better offer and more money than them. QA jobs are a dime a dozen now days and all decently paid!!!Shhzhzdzhbxx
