Was asked this question (phrased as "what is the probability that 5 people with different birthdays will sit in increasing age order around a round table (clockwise or counter-clockwise), and the recruiter said that you should ignore the jump from the oldest to youngest.

This wasn't difficult, but it's the only specific question I can remember. You're playing basketball and you're down by 2.

Alternatively, you know you can hit a 3-pointer and win with 15% probability. Which do you take?
