No trick questions

no trick questions

Traditional assessment tools use trick questions and puzzles for the screening, which creates a lot of frustration among candidates about having to go through irrelevant screening assessments.

View sample questions

The main reason we started Adaface is that traditional pre-employment assessment platforms are not a fair way for companies to evaluate candidates. At Adaface, our mission is to help companies find great candidates by assessing on-the-job skills required for a role.

These are just a small sample from our library of 10,000+ questions. The actual questions on this Machine Learning in GCP Test will be non-googleable.

🧐 Question


Healthy Replica
Google Kubernetes Engine
Sam Sankman works as Cloud Associate at FTXX Inc. FTXX’s core application is deployed in a Google Kubernetes Engine cluster. When a new version of the application is released, CI/CD tool updates the spec.template.spec.containers[0].image value to reference the Docker image of the new application version. When the Deployment object applies the change, Sam wants to deploy at least 1 replica of the new version and maintain the previous replicas until the new replica is healthy. Which change should Sam make to the Kubernetes Engine Deployment object shown below?
A: Set the Deployment Strategy to Rolling Update
B: Set the Deployment Strategy to Recreate

C: Set maxSurge to 0
D: Set maxSurge to 1

E: Set maxUnavailable to 0
F: Set maxUnavailable to 1


Network Rules
Virtual Private Cloud
Depp works as Google Cloud Architect at Amber Inc. Deep created an instance with following firewall rules:
NAME: ssh-allow
NETWORK: testnet
ALLOW: tcp:22

NAME: deny-everything
NETWORK: testnet
DENY: tcp:0-65535,udp:0-6553
What would happen if Depp tries SSH to the instance now?

A: SSH would be denied as the deny rule overrides the allow
B: SSH would be allowed as the allow rule overrides the deny
C: SSH would be denied and would need instance reboot for the to allow rule to take effect
D: SSH would be denied and would need gcloud firewall refresh command for the allow rule to take effect


Storage Costs
Cloud Storage
Kloo is a social media platform similar to Twitter in the EU market and uses Google Cloud for their infrastructure requirements. Kloo generates multiple files per day. Owing to data regulations, Kloo has to store these files in the EU regional bucket. Kloo’s data team needs only the files of last 14 days for their algorithms and APIs but need to store every single file for safe keeping and regulatory purposes even though the past data is rarely accessed. Given these constraints, how can Kloo’s data team lower the storage costs?


Storage in Compute Recovery
Cloud Storage
You work as a data manager for a large e-commerce company that heavily relies on a PostgreSQL database running on a GCP Compute Engine instance. The company has a well-established backup policy, which includes:

1. Full database backup every Monday at 1:00 AM.
2. Differential backup every day at 1:00 AM, except Monday.
3. Transaction log backup every 30 minutes.

These backups are stored in Google Cloud Storage. Today is Thursday, and a data corruption incident occurred at 4:15 PM. You have the following backup files available:

1. Full backup: Full_Backup_Mon.bak taken on Monday 1:00 AM.
2. Differential backups: Diff_Backup_Tue.bak, Diff_Backup_Wed.bak, Diff_Backup_Thu.bak taken at 1:00 AM on their respective days.
3. Transaction log backups: 30-minute interval backups from Monday 1:30 AM until Thursday 4:00 PM, like TLog_Backup_Thu_1530.bak, TLog_Backup_Thu_1600.bak.

Given the RPO (Recovery Point Objective) of 30 minutes, which of the following sequences of restore operations would ensure minimal data loss?
A: Full_Backup_Mon.bak, Diff_Backup_Thu.bak, then Transaction Log backups from Thursday 1:30 AM to 4:00 PM.
B: Full_Backup_Mon.bak, Diff_Backup_Wed.bak, then all Transaction Log backups from Wednesday and Thursday.
C: Full_Backup_Mon.bak, Diff_Backup_Thu.bak, then all Transaction Log backups from Thursday.
D: Full_Backup_Mon.bak, then all Transaction Log backups from Monday to Thursday 4:00 PM.
E: Full_Backup_Mon.bak, Diff_Backup_Tue.bak, Diff_Backup_Wed.bak, Diff_Backup_Thu.bak, then Transaction Log backups from Thursday 1:30 AM to 4:00 PM.

Reason #5

Designed for elimination, not selection

The most important thing while implementing the pre-employment Machine Learning in GCP Test in your hiring process is that it is an elimination tool, not a selection tool. In other words: you want to use the test to eliminate the candidates who do poorly on the test, not to select the candidates who come out at the top. While they are super valuable, pre-employment tests do not paint the entire picture of a candidate’s abilities, knowledge, and motivations. Multiple easy questions are more predictive of a candidate's ability than fewer hard questions. Harder questions are often "trick" based questions, which do not provide any meaningful signal about the candidate's skillset.

Machine Learning in GCP Hiring Test FAQs

Can I combine multiple skills into one custom assessment?

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.

Do you have any anti-cheating or proctoring features in place?

We have the following anti-cheating features in place:

  • Non-googleable questions
  • IP proctoring
  • Screen proctoring
  • Web proctoring
  • Webcam proctoring
  • Plagiarism detection
  • Secure browser
  • Copy paste protection

Read more about the proctoring features.

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.

What experience level can I use this test for?

Each Adaface assessment is customized to your job description/ ideal candidate persona (our subject matter experts will pick the right questions for your assessment from our library of 10000+ questions). This assessment can be customized for any experience level.

Does every candidate get the same questions?

Yes, it makes it much easier for you to compare candidates. Options for MCQ questions and the order of questions are randomized. We have anti-cheating/ proctoring features in place. In our enterprise plan, we also have the option to create multiple versions of the same assessment with questions of similar difficulty levels.

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.

What is the cost of using this test?

You can check out our pricing plans.

Can I get a free trial?

Yes, you can sign up for free and preview this test.

I just moved to a paid plan. How can I request a custom assessment?
