Implement a bi-directional map in Java. Given a key, map should return corresponding value and given a value, it should return the key

There are 2 possible solutions to this problem with the only constraint is all the keys and the values should be unique.

1. A class with 2 map variables. One variable is to store pair and the other is for pair.

2. have a single map and while inserting key, value, make below operations:
Map.put(key,value)
Map.put(value,key)

3. we could achieve #2 after extending a Map class and insert k=>v and v=>k in put method

How to answer “what is your greatest weakness?”

The question should not be what is your biggest weakness, but instead
it should be “does it make you unqualified for this job?”, and the answer would be NO, it doesn’t.
Its actually a general question, towards your self-confidence. Because any experienced person knows, that weaknesses can be overcome, failures made up for. What matters is the awareness of it, and will to change.

Q – “What is your greatest weakness?”
A – “My inability to answer stock questions with stock answers.”
