Software design based questions. Questions were very ambiguous and interviewer was not willing to explain the question or answer clarifications related to the question. Seems his mind was preset with one solution and he was not allowing me to explain my though process, when the solution provided by me was not satisfying to him, he was just moving to next question, not allowing to revise the solution and he failed to pin point the flaw in my design.
