He started asking basic questions from my resume.Then he came on asking about my project, and there was extensive discussion about my projects and resume. He was very interested in the project and asked me to explain fairly on the paper. Then he asked me to explain the algorithm used in the project and then he asked a few tricky questions on that algorithm. I was able to answer some of them and for rest, I gave him a basic idea. He was satisfied.
Then he asked some puzzles from GeeksforGeeks:
I had studied this on GeeksforGeeks so I acted well about not knowing it but he caught me, and gave me a different puzzle.
I approached the solution in the manner he was expecting.
After these two puzzles he wanted to see my thinking ability on a guesstimate question
