I rejected them, as this is one good example to show that it is a common tactic of company recruiters hiring developers by destroying their confidence in order to make interviewees accept whatever offer they give. That's one of the reasons why imposter syndrome is prevalent in this industry.

Nowadays I will be playful with recruiters psychology tactics.

Oh, I am so glad you mentioned the imposter syndrome in this case. Because this is one of those very reasons why people who are much senior to us, don't allow us to learn and instead they very vocally express, "Huh, you don't even know that?" I mean, dude.. let me try to find an answer at least. I don't mean all of them are like this, but I don't like when someone does this. Now that I am aware of it, I don't react to such statements when I hear it from someone, but many beginners don't have a clue.

To all the viewers, be confident for yourself. The worst question may design deliberately to make you look inexperienced even though you are not. Don't take it to the heart. Anyway, be sure to improve yourself and be ready for all those questions.

@nerdycap007 I'm glad that you found the essence of my reply, those actions that make you feel worthless from others will not affect you anymore.
