Associate consultant interview questions shared by candidates
There are 28 similar (meaning one cannot distinguish one from the other in any way just/simply by seeing or touching) coins, out of which 1 is slightly heavier than the rest (meaning that the weight of each of the remaining 27 coins is the same). Find the heavier coin in minimum no. of iterations. When I asked, "Is that it, sir?", the interviewer replied that I could use a weighing machine. When I asked, "Which weighing machine to use, sir... Digital or Beam/Physical?", he replied that I could use any.
The job profile of a Associate Consultant at the Bangalore office is mostly gathering data from key decision makers, so the interview panel simulated a telephonic call with a brand manager of an FMCG major. And then they pretended that they wouldn't be able to give me that data, and I had to reason with them to obtain the data.
