In HackerRank Tests, subjective questions are open-ended questions where Candidates are expected to explain their answer for a given Question. Subjective Questions may require Candidates to write essay type answers, provide definitions, scenarios or their opinions in plain text.
Steps to answer Subjective Questions
Here is a quick video to get you started with the Answering Subjective Questions workflow.
Or, if you prefer to follow directions, here are the steps for your ready reference.
- In your Test, select the Subjective Question or click Solve Question.
- In the Answer section, type your answer and click Submit answer & continue. Your answer is saved. You can revisit this question and modify your submitted answer any number of times before the Test ends.
Note: Your test setter may organize the Questions across different sections in the Test, and these sections can have specific time-limits to complete and submit the answers. In some cases, if the time allocated for a section has elapsed or you have already submitted the answer, you will not be allowed to change the answer submissions.
