Question fail. This company is hiring "cross-browser" developers, but
they can't even produce an unambiguous screening test...

I can see how whoever wrote that would consider jQuery a "nice to have".

Yes, but we call it ' St. Francis', and it is in Ontario (ON) :)

Is there really a San Francisco in Canada ?

Google Maps finds several, including
San Francisco Pizza, near Bradford West Gwillimbury, ON, Canada

Might that not be the point of that question; that the answer should
include the fact that different environments (and, in broad terms,
which) will result in different values. Possibly making the other two
questions no more than camouflage to conceal the trap here.

" 1. a = 2; b = a++ + (--a * ++a);
2. b=!-[1,];
3. b = +!{}[0]; "

IMHyetStrongO the really right answer the company expects is: "Find
that guy who produced any resemblance of the code above and hand him
on the highest tree in company's office backyard with the tablet
'Squeezecrypters to be warned'. Make sure that it visible from the
office windows."
A lesser sadistic variant of the answer: "Find that squeezecrypter and
fire his a** out. Take me instead: you will never see anything like
that in my code".

At least I would take that candidate right away, no matter if others
would sent a step-by-step per platform explanations.

P.S. I am not kidding - except hanging one anyone.
P.P.S. I am not pretending to that job. Just a boss-to-boss
suggestion.
