Selenium Interview Questions: Super 200 unique Questions

While interacting with people I came across few people who asked me about the Selenium interview questions which are expected to come in the recruitment process of the new Selenium Professionals. Since it is a well demanding topic, so I thought to write a well-described blog post which should not miss any corner of the Selenium interview questions.

The Selenium interview questions written here are totally based on the memory of my past interviews which I have attended either to get project inside the organization or to switch to the other companies. I have interviewed some resources too, so few questions written here are based on my experience as an interviewer and few questions collected from the fellow automation testers. Hence, this list of Selenium interview questions is the collections from different people.

Before I discuss the Selenium interview questions, I would like to guide you through the blueprints. Therefore, I basically categorized the entire questions based on their strength like Low, Medium, and High.  It will be convenient for you to revise them quickly during the interviews. Even many interviewers can take a reference to these Selenium interview questions to ask the candidates.

  • By assigning index: //*[@id=’lol’]//div[3]
  • By using position() method: //*[@id=’lol’]//div[position()=3]

Question# 18: How to identify element using its id in dynamic CSSSelector property?

Answer:  We use (#id) to identify the element using its id in CSSSelector property.

Question# 19: How to identify an element using its class name in dynamic CSSSelector property?

Answer:  We use (#className) to identify element using its id in CSSSelector property.

Question# 20: Can we move to nth-child using CSSSelector?
