  1. I am curious to known that…. why did you show a girl taking with someone in phone…

    Is it realated to to his answer….

  2. He already knew all rules of chessboard about how queen in chessboard moves. He was given opportunity to get out and give the answer , why not use some internet if you got opportunity to do?

  3. we can also place 8 queens in the 8*8 chess board
    i've do this many times…
    this is called n-queens problem..
    the answer is n=8.

  4. Thank you RU buZZing team for re-enactment of my interview experience. Upon seeing overflowing comments since the video came out I would like to summaries few of the queries here.

    1) This is not stolen/copied from Quora, it is a re-enactment of a quora answer & a real life experience by the director who approached me and took my consent for making this video.

    2) This is not an N-Queens Backtracking problem. Ponder a while on the question asked and compare with N-Queen.

    3) Girl shown is not directly related to the answer, it was like a reset button to help take new approach in solving the question. While I eavesdropped her chit-chat with bf, for a moment I was cut off from tension, queens, puzzle. This reset actually helped.

    The Question:
    What is the "minimum" number of Queens with which you can cover every square of chess board? Also show their arrangement.

    Some of you asked for Quora link :

  5. I've mentioned chess as my hobby .. And my tcs interview is on 6th … Will i be asked this type of puzzles ?!

  6. i think the solution which he gave at the end has defects because i find two of the blocks in the chess board as unfilled

  7. I want to share my campus placement experience in technical interview I am from aws background and also ball is in my court but due to one unconscious answer I am rejected

  8. Yeah., you guys are making me to feel that what are things still , i need to develop in myself for my coming years.
    I am B.Tech first year student at BIT , Mesra.

  9. I should have done backtracking from the beginning…it's not that difficult if you are a cs student and is familiar with backtracking

  10. Can someone please explain why was he talking about the puzzle with some random person even though the interviewer clearly told him to not ask for any help.

  11. Prime example of "they want slaves not engineers". If you dont have lunch n work like a donkey without taking care of your health. They will be impressed!

  12. Even if he had given me 2 hours, I am not sure if I would have solved this question correctly. There are a few puzzles/questions which can be solved during an interview, within the given timeframe, only if one has come across those in the past. Somehow, in videos like this one, there is always a happy ending, and this harrows me a lot. Apna time kab ayega bey.
