Interviewer : Okay Mr. V, in this case I have one - recruitment and there are two candidates, one is male and other is female who are equally talented, and we cannot keep one aside. I need to recruit only one, what do you do at this instance.
[As it is said we need to say diplomatic answers, I didn't confined for only one person, but interviewer is forcing me to come to a conclusion, and he wants me to choose either male or female].
