  • One c++ code snippet (empty class and creation of objects, copy constructor, etc.)
  • Some basic oop concepts (encapsulation and polymorphism)
  • One more puzzle – you live on the 20th floor, your friend visits you every day but takes the lift till 10th floor only and after that goes by stairs till the 20th floor but while going down takes the lift from 20th floor till the ground. why does he/she do that?
