Having worked in the recruitment world a long time, I have heard all sorts of questions asked in interviews. Some of the most bizarre, how many emergency phones are there on the M25, who would you spend your time with on a desert island, would you like a beer, if you were a tree what tree would you be and how many states can you name in America. 

However interviewers often find out the most about prospective employees by the questions that they ask in the interview. As Becca Brown found out, often the simplest question was not the one people chose to ask.
