Round 3: It was a telephonic technical interview.When you clear Round 2 you will have a telephonic technical interview. The questions asked in the telephonic interview were very basic and from the same topics i.e. Java, OS and Computer Networks.
At first, he introduced himself and asked me to introduce myself. Then he began asking questions from java.
1)Why is java better than other object oriented languages?
2)How java implements its security and portability features? (Please do mention the use of JVM)
3)What is the use of polymorphism and how it is achieved?
1)Differentiate between Physical Memory and Logical Memory.
2)What is a virtual memory?
1)Explain TCP/IP and OSI model and differentiate between them.

The last question in both the interviews was do you want to ask something.
