having taught at one point in my life for about 10+ years. I can say in about 15 minutes if a person can get "it" or not.
usually it revolves around.
let a=15
let b=5
let c=a+b
what is c?

if they know the answer to that. Most of the rest is just delivery and work at learning. If they come up with something like c is c for like cat or c is ab or soemthing else. I have seen all sorts of answers but the ones that come up with something mathematical like c is 20, or 15 or 5 or 10. Those are going to work out.
To err is human to really elephant it up you need a computer
