The following questions were asked in one interview:

1) (2,3,30,90,35) they asked me what I understand from these?
2) I have 30 steps in a job. I want to execute steps 5,8, and 10. (can I use a condition statement in a JOB card)?
3) How to compare modified code and test code?
4) How to get the data from tape datasets?

To copy data from TAPE to DISK.
Code:
//TTDISK EXEC PGM=IDCAMS                             
//INDD DD DSN=TAPE.DSN.NAME,DISP=SHR 
//OUTDD DD DSN=DISK.DSN.NAME,
//      DCB=(BLKSIZE=LLLLL,LRECL=LLL,RECFM=VB),     
//      DISP=(,CATLG,DELETE)                         
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*                               
//SYSIN DD *                                         
 REPRO INFILE(INDD) OUTFILE(OUTDD)
