I got the confirmation of passing the previous round on 11th Nov and was asked to appear in this final round which was scheduled on 15th Nov at 11:00 am in the morning and it was going to be an HR round which probably was my favourite among all the other rounds. I prepared for by reading interview experiences available at coding ninjas and geeksforgeeks.

1. Basic Puzzles

This puzzle usually seems like a tough one to answer, but solving it once makes one realize that the procedure was actually simple. If the candidate pulls out 2 red balls, he replaces them with a blue ball. 
On the other hand, if he draws one red and one blue, it is replaced with a red one. This implies that the red ball would always be in odd numbers, whether the candidate removes 2 to...
