I think this points out the silliness of these kinds of questions.
There is no "right" answer. More to the point, the interviewee, when
he/she gets one of these questions, probably goes into hyper-analysis
mode: "Now, just what did he mean by that question?" He's likely to
give the answer he thinks you want to hear.
Do you really want to make hire/no-hire decisions based on somebody's
ability to second-guess what you probably wanted to hear when you asked
a pointless question?
