Hi Anshuman

Never say Money even if it is the most important thing for you.

Money is important, but it is the work that will get me money. So, work is the most important. There can always be a better answer. 

Be sure that you demonstrate level- headedness, morality, work ethic, and intelligence to know that money doesn't buy happiness.

Hi Anshuman,

Interview is our first interaction with the prospective employer and the interviewer totally understand that much of our life is about choices we make. Thus to know more about your personality, your working style and performance under pressure, interviewer probes you to make a choice between two competing alternatives.

You answer can be - I would consider work and money equally important. Since earning money for our livelihood is important but more important is loving what I do. Enjoying my work, contributing to the success of project assigned to me, having cordial relations with co-workers and boss is the highest priority. I do not want to be in a position where I hate my work but I am highly paid. I will certainly take up some opportunities in a team for learning or volunteering purpose, no matter the pay. Overall, I look forward to growth in both personal and professional arena. As a matter of fact, recognition and good compensation package comes with quality work that we do.

Hope this is helpful.

Best wishes,

Piyush
