Forget explaining who would win in a fight between 100 duck-sized horses and one horse-sized duck - this executive has a job interview question with no right answer.

Hasbro's Karen Davis told Business Insider her favourite tough interview query is "what's your favourite quote?"

She believes the question helps her understand what applicants truly care about. "I think it's just one little way of seeing whether this is really part of someone's soul," she said. "I want to see that somebody has been looking for sources of inspiration."

If you're looking for even toughter questions, the Association of Accounting Technicians released their top 10 based on a survey of 2,000 people in March.

1.What are your weaknesses?

2.Describe yourself in three words

3.If you were a fruit or vegetable what would you be and why?

4.Why should we choose you for this role?

5.Describe a time when you have failed

6.What are your strengths?

7.If you were a flavour of ice cream, what would you be and why?

8.What has been your greatest achievement?

9.Why did you apply for this job?

10.How will you contribute to the team?
