This question asked to one student during selection process of IIM . IIM GD & PI are said to be lot hectic and discouraging. Students are tested for their patience, perseverance and knowledge. Sometime, puzzling questions can be answered with presence of mind and wisdom. One example here below.
Interviewer: “I shall ask you ten easy questions or one really difficult question. Think well before you make up your mind !”
The boy thought for a while and said, “ My choice is one really difficult question.”
“ Well, good luck to you, you have made your own choice ! Now tell me this.”
“What comes first, day or Night ?”
The boy was jolted into reality as his admission depends on the correctness of his answer, but he thought for a while and said, “It’s the DAY sir ! “
“How ? “, the interviewer asked.
“Sorry, Sir, you promised me that you will not ask me a SECOND question !”
He was selected for IIM !
