Puzzle to puzzle U

Six men, whose names are Fred Alberts, Larry Smith, Brian Martin, Marty Jones, Bill Edison, and John Fox were in an elevator together. Suddenly, the lights went out. When the lights came back on, Fred Alberts was found stabbed. Other detectives have investigated. They have questioned the suspects, the witnesses, and people who know the suspects. They have collected physical evidence (hair samples, fibre samples, etc.) from the crime scene. They have collected 14 clues, but have not been able to solve the crime. Therefore, they have called in the world's greatest detective, YOU. You must now examine the clues and solve the murder.
No two suspects have the same weight, colour shoes, colour umbrella, colour car, or hair colour.The suspect who owns a purple car was wearing tan shoes.The suspect who weighs 180 pounds owns a green car.Brian Martin owns a green car.The suspect who owns a black car was wearing blue shoes.The suspect who weighs 150 pounds was wearing tan shoes.Marty Jones was carrying a purple umbrella.John Fox has red hair.Larry Smith weighs 210 pounds.The suspect who weighs 190 pounds was wearing blue shoes.The suspect who was carrying a red umbrella is not the one who was wearing black shoes.The murderer owns a black car.The suspect who owns a white car is not the one who weighs 170 pounds.Bill Edison was wearing brown shoes.The suspect who weighs 190 pounds is not the one who has red hair.


Marty Jones: Brian Martin owns a green car. The murderer owns a black car, so Brian Martin is not the murderer. The suspect who owns a black car was wearing blue shoes. The suspect who weighs 190 pounds was wearing blue shoes. The suspect who weighs 190 pounds is not the one who has red hair. Therefore, one suspect was wearing blue shoes, owns a black car, weighs 190 pounds, and is not the one who has red hair. But Bill Edison was wearing brown shoes, John Fox has red hair, Larry Smith weighs 210 pounds, and Brian Martin owns a green car. Therefore, the only suspect who could be this suspect is Marty Jones. Since this suspect, Marty Jones, owns a black car and the murderer owns a black car, he is the murderer.

Interview Tips


1.Tell me about yourself.The most often asked question in interviews. You need to have a short statement prepared in your mind. Be careful that it does not sound rehearsed. Limit it to work/Study-related items unless instructed otherwise. Talk about things you have done well at your college and how you wanted to perform in the first job.
2. Why Should We Employ You?For this question, your answer should list out strengths that you feel are relevant to the job. Given below are some answers which could help you with your answers. However, structure them to suit your requirements.
I have good co-ordination skillsGood analytical skillsI can persuade people to see my point of view, and get the work doneMy greatest asset is my ability to motivate peopleEven during emergencies, I do not loose my coolI have good entrepreneurial skillsI have consistently met my deadlines and targetsCan say “no” to people when required to do so!I am very co-operative with my sub-ordinates, and would like to see them growI am a good team playerI am very flexible, and have the ability to work hard under difficult work conditionsI have the experience and knowledge relevant to this job (Here, give appropriate details and examples)
3. Do You Have Offers From Other Companies ?This is of course a difficult question to answer. Obviously, you must have applied to other companies if you are looking for a job or would have some offers from other companies already. Therefore, do not lie that you have not. However, you are on thin ice here! The interviewer could be checking your honesty. On the other hand, he/she may also be trying to find out how focused you are - are you applying randomly, or is there a well-planned strategy?Whatever your answer, it should match your career goals.

4. What Salary Are You Expecting?Try not to get into salary details early in the interview. If pressed, you could say that it all depends on the job, and would like to talk about it after a job offer. Say this in a convincing tone. In case you are asked this question in your latter interviews, give a direct answer. Do not sound apologetic while quoting the figure you have in mind.
5. What do you know about our company?Do not give your opinions about the company. Stick to reported facts that you have gathered from newspapers and so on. Talk about the product portfolio, size, income, and market perceptions of the company. Also it is better to refer details about each company before going for the interview from or
6. Why should we choose you over someone else?Talk clearly about problems that you have solved in your College/Project Team and highlight the quality required.
7. Your qualifications are excellent, but you may be overqualified for the position we have to offer?Point out that more experience can never be a drawback. If you are multi-skilled, then highlight the fact that a company on the fast-track needs multi-skilled people. It needs people within different departments to work together. Also emphasise that the company's future growth will be an exponential function of your experience.
