Google Interview Questions

Here are such questions which Google asked: -

1)   You are shrunk to the height of a nickel and your mass is proportionally reduced so as to maintain your original density and to your horror you are present in an empty glass blender. You have 60 seconds before the blade starts movement. What will you do in that particular situation? (This question is very famous and there is no definitive answer for it perhaps you can come up with one).

2)   How do you convey the meaning of database in three sentences to a child?

5)   How exactly does garbage collection work? Explain about three processes on three different platforms?

Google tests your natural ability and it is fully technical and asks for out of box thinking. You need not be the best among your class to land a job in Google you just need to think on your feet.

At night while the other two were sleeping, one boy woke up, tip-toed to the basket of mangoes, counted them and ate one. From the remainder he took a precise third and went back to sleep. After some time a second boy woke up. He counted the mangoes, ate one, took an exact third of the remaining and went back to sleep. A little before sun rise the third boy also woke up, ate one, and like the other two boys took a precise third of the remainder in whole mangoes. In the morning, all the three boys went together to the basket of mangoes, counted them. Amongst them they found a ripe mango and discarded it as it was not good for eating. From the remainder they made an exact division.
Find the total number of mangoes which were stolen from the yard?
