What are some of the weirdest questions asked in IAS interview/UPSC exams?
There is a mute person who wants to buy a toothbrush. By imitating the action of brushing one’s teeth he successfully expresses himself to the shopkeeper and the purchase is done. Now if there is a blind man who wishes to buy a pair of sunglasses, how should he express himself? He just has to open his mouth and ask, so simple.
I heard one from my teacher. Don’t know if it is weird but I definitely think it was tricky. The panel interviewing the candidates dropped a 100 rupee note. Many walked in, picked the currency and put it aside gently on a table….thinking, being humble would increase their chances of getting selected. But little did they know they would get rejected the very next moment they did that act. And guess who got selected……..a gentleman who ordered or rather administered the waiter working there to pick up the currency and put it away. Guess they were wanting a person who was good at ADMINISTRATION rather than the WORK itself.
