Odds are your interviewers did not coordinate and ended up asking the same question hahaha, wouldn't think too much of it

Thanks, that’s what I thought too, but you know how anxiety makes us overthink things :)

Highly likely there was a lack of coordination. The hiring committee will see your packet though in totality if you make it to the next stages and they’ll probably question why you had the same coding question for 2 interviews.

You're probably stress about nothing. Every time you approach something you'll see or do it differently. Nothing is ever done exactly the same until it's in the code 🤣

Ya, you think too highly of FAANG. We are not that organized lol
