# Two questions to test your quant skills by Antoine Savine

Do you have what it takes to be a quant? This article on quora lists two of the most commonly asked interview questions and answers in *mathematical finance *(quants also need increasingly strong *computational* skills, which this post does not address).

The first question (Feynman-Kac’s theorem) focuses on *knowledge* and the manipulation of the mathematics that quants apply every day. The skills required to answer are the same needed to follow financial modeling literature and conferences. The second question (model-free valuation of binary options) focuses on *agility *and reasoning, and tests the skills required to apply mathematics to resolve modeling problems.
