Smart arts answers

It is said that it is an intellectual art form to complete the Indian Administrative Services entry exam. But because the list of candidates is so vast, the exam produces some of the wittiest examples of lateral thinking and smart artistry. Here are some examples:

And this classic exchange, after which the candidate was given a prime job offer in the Public Service:

Interviewer: “I shall either ask you 10 easy questions or one really difficult question. Think well before you make up your mind!”
The man thought for a while and said, “My choice is one really difficult question.”
Interviewer: “Well, good luck to you, you have made your own choice! Now tell me this. What comes first, day or night?”
The fellow was jolted into reality, as his career future depended on the correctness of his answer.
But he thought for a while and said, “It's the day sir!”
“How?” the interviewer asked.
“Sorry sir, you promised me that you will not ask me a second difficult question!”
He was selected for the role.
