Yes, the whole point is to dig as deep as possible to assess levels of understanding. I, for example like the formulation of "How would you explain the concept of closures to a junior developer and to a non technical person?" versus "What is a Javascript closure? Provide some examples"
I think the first one is more prone to reveal depth in understanding than the second formulation which by the way is the most popular screening question in Javascript.
Thank you for adding to the discussion, I surely appreciate the comments.
