3.Which is the cheapest source of energy?
4.If you will become the Power minister what reforms will u bring in it.
5.Then he asked me one more question related to my answer.

Answered these questions in a very effective manner.....and remember when ever you answer any question try to look into eyes of the interviewer , you can judge his reaction, like at many points you will feel that he is looking for some more explanation then go ahead, he may or may not ask every time. You have to judge it urself sometimes.

Like cheapest source wala questions. I said nuclear energy , then his eyes demanded more explanation then I said, the installation cost is high but after the break even point it becomes the cheapest source. Did not answer here wind energy because that is not available every where and moreover the discussion was going on nuclear thermal and hydro energy.
