I think that's considered one of the worst questions one can ask on an
interview and denotes that the person making the interview is completely
clueless. I honestly never understood the exact value of such questions or
what exactly they try to get out of you by asking it since 99% of the people
will give the same textbook answer. Most of the people criticize it heavily,
and they are right to do so in my opinion.
