They may actually be looking to see if you're willing to say "I don't know".

My response would be twofold.

1) "C++03, C++11, or C++14? The Standards committee added some in each iteration."
2) "To be honest, I probably can't name them all off the top of my head. I could look them up (for C++03) in my copy of the standard, or use Google to find them all. However, I generally find that vector, list, set and map tend to meet most of my needs. If I need something specialized, I'll look it up."

I recently visited the Reagan library to take in the baseball exhibit. Since I was there, I took the tour first. It ended with a multimedia presentation that included the quote:

"Whatever else history may say about me when I'm gone, I hope it will record that I appealed to your best hopes, not your worst fears; to your confidence rather than your doubts."

While I may not be a fan of the man, I believe he really did try to do that.

Nowadays? Let's face it, neither Bush nor Obama could say that with a straight face
