The once the individual with the lower time crosses the 10 minute individual is still on the bridge for another 5 mins. so allow 2 min individual onto bridge and 10 min indvidual will have 3 mins left to complete. let 1 min individual cross and they'll be done before the 10 minute individual Total time: 10 minsNo. 1 and No. 2 go across: 2 minutes No. 2 returns with flash: 2 minutes No. 3 and No. 4 go across: 10 minutes No. 1 returns with flash: 1 minute No. 1 and No. 2 go across: 2 minutes = 17 minutesShow more responsesI think all three answers works , But depends on constrains , Like it has to be the third method posted on Jan 22 if they dont have contact with both the sidesPerson with 10 mins speed starts with 2nd person (5 mins speed).

### Quality Assurance Engineer at Sandvine was asked...

 You have 9 marbles which are all the same weight, except for one which is slightly heavier than the others. You also have an old?style balance, which allows you to weigh two piles of marbles to see which one is heavier (or if they are of equal weight). What is the fewest number of weighings that you can make which will tell you which marble is the heavier one ?5 AnswersThe fewest number of weightings is 2. Divide 9 marbles in 3 groups of 3. Weight #1A: 3 in each side. If balance, Weigtht #2A:1 in each side. If balance then the non-weighting is the one, otherwise the heavy side is the one. Weight #1B: 3 in each side. If not balance, then the heavy one has a defect one Weight #2B: Same as in #2AI disagree on the above, you can divide 9 marbles into three groups of: 4, 4 and 1. Then, weigh 4 and 4 together. If the balance is "balanced", it means the one left aside is the heaviest marble. So, you could accomplish the task in just one weighing, but the chances of that are pretty low. However, that is what the question asks, in my opinion.As little as one, up to three. 4 and 4 on each side. If it is balanced, you found the heaviest one. If unbalanced, take the heavier group and divide it into 2 and 2, then 1 and 1.Show more responsesin 2 weightings you will definitely get an answer. getting answer in one weighing is not always a possibilityTotal 2 steps: Let's divide all marbles in 3 groups A (1,2,3), B (4,5,6) and C (7,8,9). Compare A (1,2,3) with B (4,5,6).. if it's balanced then heavy marble is in group C (7,8,9). Else Either A is heavy or B. In short after 1st test we get the heavy group. Now we have to find from the heavy group (which are 3 marbles). for instance if A group is heavy then Compare marble 1 and 2 --> if balanced then 3 is the heavy one else heady one is already down 1 or 2.

### QA Analyst at KUBRA was asked...

Feb. 1, 2014
 The guy asked me if I know what the quality means. His example of quality was super-expensive designer bags that his girlfriend impulse-buys on the internet. No, that is NOT a joke. He was visibly not interested in the whole process, I could tell. Not a single technical question, and his answers to mine were vague. My guess is he is a lousy programmer, even though he doesn't have to be one to do his job.4 AnswersYou can talk to the QA team lead about designer bags from Versace or Burberry, maybe you will have a chance… nothing technical, that's for sure.QA at Kubra are not programmers. They promote code to PREP and PROD. They do not even perform any testing beyond a single test case presented to them on the change request. They use tools to back up, compile and promote the code. That's about it. Its a weird system for QA, in all companies I worked for, QA were the ones doing extensive testing and such.Wow, now that response is interesting ^. "… They do not even perform any testing beyond a single test case presented to them on the change request." Presented by whom? The developer(s) who made the change? This sounds like a unit, or at most a single module test, that must have been preformed by the programmer already during his/her work, and PRIOR to handing the code down to QA. If that's the case, it violates the basic principle of SW testing: developer(s) should have absolutely no influence on how the QA test the software. What if there are certain critical areas that might have been affected by the change? Here's a bit of wisdom from a true SW artist, Mr. E.W. Dijkstra: "Testing can only reveal the presence of bugs, not their absence." Chew on this for a little bit, maybe you will understand what testing is all about. Cheers.Show more responsesQA at Kubra are a bit misrepresented. I was also surprised once I found out what they do. They do not test beyond the "does it compile" and a single test scenario written by a developer (sometimes not even that, some things cannot be tested by Kubra, only by client). What they do is migrate code/db from one environment to another (test to prep, prep to prod), that is all. No coding involved whatsoever. I am sorry you applied for something that was not what you expected. If you are good at coding, you should apply for Programmer Analyst or Developer positions.

 If you are using QTP, how can you identify 2 pop up windows with exactly the same object id?
