I was asked only this one simple question at the TDCJ interview. The question was this one.

QUESTION: What is the shortest number of words required to make a complete sentence?
ANSWER: Two, a subject and a verb.

That was the answer that I gave to the interviewer and he told me that it's absolutely 100% correct. I was hired right there on the spot. Just for the record however, this took place many years ago back when things were quite different in TDCJ.
