1) Explain ruby on rails your grandmother
2)Explain .net to you gradmother
3) Count number of books on earth
4) You have 100$, whom will you give this amount -
PM, SDE, or SDET
 
It was difficult to come with some idea spontaneously to explain ruby and .net to grandmother and their difference.

Who or what are PM, SDE and SDET? And why wouldn't I keep the $100 myself?
 
Frankly the only question I might begin to answer is 3, but the best one can do there is estimate, because new books are constantly printed, and old ones are destroyed and lost. Never mind that "book" is a vague concept.

The first 2 questions are probably to see how you would explain technical topics to a non-technical person. And your granny is a good target for that. (No offense intended)
 
The one about books, like towr said, must be about estimating.
 
Now for the acronyms, I think PM stands for Personal Manager, the guy you report to. But I've no idea what the other 2 stand for.

Here is a good Microsoft .NET related site with programming articles
www dot eggheadcafe dot com
 
Moderator's Note: link changed to text because it's probably spam.  It looks like a legit .NET site, but brand new and there's almost no content...

About your question for .net; this is huge and complex question. net framework is very vast. If the interviewer asks you to define the .net Architecture, then briefly explain the CLR, MSIL and strongly type data types.
 
When in interview, the question is about the framework, never go into language details.

Actually, they keep looking for candidates who have their concepts crystal clear... who can easily explain a technical stuff to a person who is laymen... or of elder generation..

I was asked question mostly on CSS3 aspects, like animations , keyframes etc. Sadly, i couldn't answer them as i would i have likes. I found a good resource though to study them after the interview

2) My Grandma already know about .net. I can't make her understand.
3) Books can not be counted. There are many books. Old books are also there and new one is added to the old one. It goes on increase.
4) Why would I give $100? Is there any restriction to keep it to myself? I would like to keep it in my pocket.
