To buy yourself some time, repeat the question to the interviewer (or ask them to repeat it). If you’re still not ready, it’s OK to pause and consider your response; it’s ideal to pause before each answer to avoid stumbling over poorly written responses. If you’re really stuck, see if you can revisit the question later. Although you may lose some points and the interviewer may not return to that subject, try not to talk too much.
