What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 3)?

"Did not happen to me, but I was told one interviewer likes to ask questions that even a resident couldn't answer just to see how you react in a high-stress situation when you don't know the answer. Don't get flustered; tell them what you know if you can answer it, and if not, be honest about that too. Trying to BS won't usually pay off" Report Response
