This might be a simple enough question but its a vital query that would show off your ability to be a critical thinker.



According to researchers there is one simply way to  master this seemly simple but critical question with the right answer, Rephrase the question you’ve been ask, this proves to your potential employer that you have been paying attention the whole time and asides from this, you would also be able to tap into other important need to know areas.
