U r looking different from the photo and real (as I was wearing glass on the time of interview and not in the photo)

Give a situation were u can work as a team and alone?
And then they gave two puzzles but I can’t solve it at that time. But I can solve it after I came out from the room. They were.
1. There are two vessels of same size with water in it and one is 20 degree Celsius and other is 20 degree Fahrenheit. When a coin is put in both vessel which will reach bottom first.
Ans: as 20 degree Fahrenheit is definitely a freezing pt, at this time none can be be immersed so at 20 degree Celsius the coin will immerse first.
2. A Doctor and Nurse gave birth to a child. The child becomes 15 years of age then one day teacher asked the child about their parents and she said that his father is not a doctor and his mother was not a nurse. How is it possible?
Ans: The doctor and Nurse processed the delivery of child and not they are the father and Mother of the child.
And finally they asked any questions from your side??
Then they said the results will be after 4 to 6 weeks.
(On written test the selection is based on 10th 12th, graduation aggregate and also puzzles and English. Puzzles clearing cut off is based on your 10th ,12th and BE Aggregate, so if u have more marks in all these then your cutoff will be less. This info is Up to my knowledge but not sure)
