Typing Test Dumpling hunt

Typing
Solve
One sunny afternoon, Po, the legendary Kung Fu Panda, decided to take a break from his martial arts training and visit the bustling village market. He had a craving for his favorite dumplings and was eager to find the tastiest ones. As Po strolled through the market, his enthusiasm drew the attention of curious onlookers. They giggled and whispered as the giant panda, clad in his iconic Kung Fu attire, carefully examined fruits and vegetables, hunting for the freshest ingredients. At the dumpling stall, Po's excitement peaked, and he accidentally knocked over a tower of bamboo steamers. The vendor, surprisingly unflustered, smiled and said, "Ah, the great Dragon Warrior! No need to worry, Po. A few fallen steamers are nothing compared to the joy you bring to our village." The crowd erupted in laughter as Po sheepishly grinned and picked up the steamers. He left the market with a basket full of delicious dumplings and a heart warmed by the villagers' affection. The day Po went shopping would be fondly remembered as a delightful and hilarious break from the ordinary.

Once upon a time, in a picturesque village nestled at the base of a majestic mountain range, there lived a talented blacksmith named Charles. Charles was renowned throughout the land for his incredible craftsmanship and the unmatched quality of his creations. People traveled great distances to purchase his fine swords, delicate jewelry, and durable tools. Charles felt immense pride in his work and was always eager to share his knowledge with anyone who showed a genuine interest in his craft. One sunny day, as Charles hammered away at his anvil, a young woman named Emily approached his workshop with a sense of wonder in her eyes. She marveled at the intricate designs and the gleaming metalwork that adorned the walls. Feeling a deep desire to learn the art of blacksmithing, Emily hesitantly asked Charles if he would be willing to teach her the secrets of his trade. Charles, a generous soul, agreed without hesitation, and so began Emily's apprenticeship. Each day, she absorbed the lessons of her mentor, gradually honing her skills and developing her unique style. As time passed, Emily's creations began to rival those of Charles, and together they forged a partnership that brought their village even greater fame and prosperity. One fateful evening, a fierce storm rolled in, bringing with it torrential rain and unrelenting winds. Lightning illuminated the sky, casting eerie shadows across the village. Suddenly, a massive bolt of lightning struck Charles and Emily's workshop, setting it ablaze. The villagers, working tirelessly to extinguish the flames, managed to save their beloved blacksmiths' lives, but the workshop and all their creations were lost to the fire. Undeterred, Charles and Emily decided to rebuild their workshop and continue their shared passion for blacksmithing. With the support of their community, they created a new, even grander workshop, and their artistry continued to flourish. The tale of their resilience and unwavering determination became a beacon of inspiration for generations to come.

Configuring Load Balancing
Load Balancing
Web Hosting
Server Configuration
Solve
A client has a high-traffic website that is currently hosted on a single server. To ensure high availability and to distribute the load across multiple servers, they have decided to implement a load balancing solution.

The client has set up two additional servers identical to the original one, and all three servers are configured to serve the website. They have also set up a load balancer and updated their DNS records so that the website's domain now points to the load balancer.

Now, the client approaches you to verify the configuration. While reviewing the setup, you discover that the client hasn't configured session persistence (also known as sticky sessions) on their load balancer.

Which of the following are potential issues the client might face due to the lack of session persistence?
A: Users may experience slower website load times.
B: User sessions might be lost, causing them to be logged out unexpectedly.
C: The load balancer may not distribute traffic evenly across the servers.
D: The website may not be accessible if one of the servers goes down.
E: Users may not be able to establish a secure connection to the website.

DNS Propagation Troubleshooting
DNS
Web Hosting
Solve
You are a technical support specialist and a client contacts you reporting they are unable to access their website after changing their domain's DNS records to point to a new web host. They receive an error message stating the server's IP address could not be found.

Upon investigation, you determine that:

1. The client made the DNS changes 24 hours ago.
2. The client's device is unable to resolve the domain to the new IP address.
3. Other devices in the client's local network also can't access the website.
4. The client is able to access other websites without issues.
5. Using an external tool, you find that DNS propagation has completed in most parts of the world.

Given these facts, what should the client do to resolve the issue?
A: Wait for another 24 hours for DNS propagation to complete.
B: Update the domain's DNS records again.
C: Reset the router and clear the DNS cache on their devices.
D: Contact the new web host and ask them to check their server configuration.
E: Change the domain's DNS records to point to the old web host.

SSH Port Change
Linux
SSH
Server Configuration
Solve
A client's Linux server has been experiencing brute force attacks on their SSH service. To reduce the risk of successful attacks, the client wants to change the default SSH port from 22 to a non-standard port.

The client updates the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file on the server and changes the line `#Port 22` to `Port 2222`. They then save and close the file.

What should the client do next to apply the changes and start using the new SSH port?
A: Restart the network service using the command `service network restart`.
B: Reboot the entire server using the command `reboot`.
C: There's no need to do anything; the changes will take effect immediately.
D: Run the command `ssh -p 2222` to start using the new port.
E: Restart the SSH service using the command `service sshd restart`.

Network Troubleshooting
Solve
As a technical support specialist, a client approaches you with a concern that their website's load time is considerably slow. They mention that their users are reporting load times of up to 20 seconds. They request your help in troubleshooting the issue.

You perform the following steps to investigate:

1. You access the website from your location and it loads within 3 seconds.
2. You use a web performance testing tool that tests the website from various locations globally and the average load time reported is 5 seconds.
3. You review the website's code and find it to be optimized with no obvious performance issues.
4. The client's website is hosted on a server located in London.

Given this information, which of the following is most likely causing the slow load times reported by the users?
A: The website is experiencing high traffic volumes.
B: The server needs to be upgraded to a more powerful one.
C: The users are located far from the server location.
D: The website's code is inefficient and needs to be optimized.
E: The server's network connection is unreliable.

How does pricing work?

You can check out our pricing plans.

Can I customize the test?

Yes, absolutely. Custom assessments are set up within 48 hours based on your job description, and will include questions on all must-have skills you specify. Here's a quick guide on how you can request a custom test. You can also customize a test by uploading your own questions.

Can I combine multiple skills into one test?

Yes, absolutely. Custom assessments are set up based on your job description, and will include questions on all must-have skills you specify. Here's a quick guide on how you can request a custom test.

What roles can I use the Live Chat Support Skills Assessment Test for?

Here are few roles for which we recommend this test:

  • Live Chat Support Agent
  • Technical Support Specialist
  • Customer Service Representative
  • Problem Solver
  • Call Center Agent
  • Help Desk Support
  • Virtual Assistant
  • Online Chat Agent
  • Customer Support Associate
  • Bilingual Support Representative
Can I see a sample test, or do you have a free trial?

Yes!

The free trial includes one sample technical test (Java/ JavaScript) and one sample aptitude test that you will find in your dashboard when you sign up. You can use it to review the quality of questions and the candidate experience of giving a test on Adaface.

You can preview any of the 500+ tests and see the sample questions to decide if it would be a good fit for your requirements.

How do I interpret test scores?

The primary thing to keep in mind is that an assessment is an elimination tool, not a selection tool. A skills assessment is optimized to help you eliminate candidates who are not technically qualified for the role, it is not optimized to help you find the best candidate for the role. So the ideal way to use an assessment is to decide a threshold score (typically 55%, we help you benchmark) and invite all candidates who score above the threshold for the next rounds of interview.

I'm a candidate. Can I try a practice test?

No. Unfortunately, we do not support practice tests at the moment. However, you can use our sample questions for practice.
