A topic is given on the spot and candidates are supposed to speak in favour/against it. The idea is to test the ability of team work and cooperation within the organisation. Points are also given to initiate/end the discussion and come to a mutual consensus. It tests whether one is capable of presenting their opinion in a group of people and work cohesively with peers.

These questions may consist of traditional interview questions, brainteasers, technical proficiency tests and problem-solving questions.
