Solution: If you, as a candidate, find yourself speculating about time travel and being one’s own grandfather, I have one word of advice: don’t go there. These interview questions are never about fantasy. There is a solution here; you just have to get past the assumption, the mental blinders that are trapping you. The assumption is that the puzzle starts in AD 1995. Wrong. The puzzle actually is framed before the Common Era, when the pyramids would still have been considered ancient.

Answer: The young man first visited the Great Pyramids in 1995 BC. In 1969 BC, 26 years later, he fulfilled his vow to his son.
