Q19. When do you use useLayoutEffect?

  • to optimize for all devices
  • to complete the update
  • to change the layout of the screen
  • when you need the browser to paint before the effect runs

[Source] ( "useLayoutEffect is a version of useEffect that fires before the browser repaints the screen."

[Explanation]The correct answer to the question "When do you use useLayoutEffect?" is:

When you need to change the layout of the screen.

useLayoutEffect is used when you need to perform DOM mutations that rely on the updated layout of the elements. It allows you to make changes to the DOM synchronously before the browser performs its painting step. This can be useful when you need to measure or manipulate the layout, such as accessing element dimensions or positions, calculating scroll offsets, or performing other operations that require up-to-date layout information.

The other option provided as answer is not accurate:

"When you need the browser to paint before the effect runs" is not correct. The purpose of useLayoutEffect is to run the effect synchronously after the DOM updates but before the browser paints, allowing you to make layout-related changes before the visual rendering occurs.

Explanation: useLayoutEffect gets executed before the useEffect hook without much concern for DOM mutation. Even though the React hook useLayoutEffect is set after the useEffect Hook, it gets triggered first!

Q21. How do you destructure the properties that are sent to the Dish component?

  return (
      {} {props.cookingTime}

  • function Dish({name, cookingTime}) { return <h1>{name} {cookingTime}</h1>; }

Q22. When might you use React.PureComponent?

  • when you do not want your component to have props
  • when you have sibling components that need to be compared
  • when you want a default implementation of shouldComponentUpdate()
  • when you do not want your component to have state


Q23. Why is it important to avoid copying the values of props into a component's state where possible?

  • because you should never mutate state
  • because getDerivedStateFromProps() is an unsafe method to use
  • because you want to allow a component to update in response to changes in the props
  • because you want to allow data to flow back up to the parent

Q24. What is the children prop?

  • a property that adds child components to state

Q38. Why is it a good idea to pass a function to setState instead of an object?

  • It provides better encapsulation.
  • It makes sure that the object is not mutated.
  • It automatically updates a component.
  • setState is asynchronous and might result in out of sync values.


Explanation: Because this.props and this.state may be updated asynchronously, you should not rely on their values for calculating the next state.

Passing Props to a Component

Q102. This code is part of an app that collects Pokemon. The useState hook below is a piece of state holding onto the names of the Pokemon collected so far. How would you access the collected Pokemon in state?

const PokeDex = (props) => {
  const [pokeDex, setPokeDex] = useState([]);
  /// ...
  • props.pokeDex
  • this.props.pokeDex
  • setPokeDex()
  • pokeDex

Explanation: useState always return an array with two values, the state itself (on first value) and the set function that lets you update the state (on second value) useState Reference

Q103. What would you pass to the onClick prop that will allow you to pass the initName prop into the greet handler?

const Greeting = ({ initName }) => {
  const greet = (name) => console.log("Hello, " + name + "!");
  return <button onClick={ ... }>Greeting Button </button>
  • hug
  • this.hug(initName)
  • (name) => this.hug(name)
  • () => hug(initName)

Explanation: Apparently the question misstyped greet as hug. Putting this aside, we can still learn from this question.

  • In a function, the global object is the default binding for this. In a browser window the global object is [object Window]. This is a functional Component, so this from this.hug actually refers to browser window. Since it is a functional component, we can directly refer to hug without using this.
  • To pass a handler to onClick, we should always pass a function rather than execute a function. So we need to use callback here. initName is available in Greeting's function scope, so we can directly supply as an argument to hug().

Q119. Why is the waitlist not updating correctly?

const Waitlist = () => {
  const [name, setName] = useState('');
  const [waitlist, setWaitlist] = useState([]);
  const onSubmit = (e) => {
  return (
      <form onSubmit={onSubmit}>
          Name: <input type="text" value={name} onChange={(e) => setName(} />
        <button type="submit">Add to waitlist</button>

        { => (
          <li key={name}>{name}</li>
  • waitlist is being mutated directly. Use the setWaitlist function instead to update the waitlist state.
  • The form is reloading the page each time Add to waitlist is clicked.
  • The Add to waitlist button is missing a click handler.
  • There are likely repeated names inside of the waitlist array.

Q125. What is the purpose of the virtual DOM in React.js, and how does it improve performance in web applications??

  • The virtual DOM is used to store user authentication data securely.
  • The virtual DOM is a backup copy of the actual DOM, created for debugging purposes.

Q126. You run the following code and get this error message: "invalid hook call." what is wrong with the code?

import React from 'react';

const [poked, setPoked] = React.useState(false);

function PokeButton() {
  return <button onClick={() => setPoked(true)}>{poked ? 'You have left a poke.' : 'Poke'}</button>;
  • The useState call needs to be called inside of the PokeButton component.
  • The react package is likely not installed correctly.
  • useState is not imported correctly. Import useState directly instead of importing react.
  • PokeButton is a pure function and therefore cannot have any local state.

Q127. A colleague comes to you for help on a react component. They say that the poke button renders correctly, however when the button is clicked, this error is shown: "setPoked is not defined". What is wrong with their code?

function PokeButton() {
  const { poked, setPoked } = useState(false);
  return <button onclick={() => setPoked(true)}>{poked ? 'You have left a poke.' : 'Poke'}</button>;
  • onClick prop should be onclick.
  • The click handler passed to the onClick prop is inlined. Move this handler into a variable outside of JSX.
  • They use object destructructing instead of array destructructing. Wrap the poked and setPoked values in an array.
  • poked and setPoked are not destructured in the correct order.
