How do you give answer to technical question in interview ?

sometimes it happens that we are not able to explain it well what we know in interview. What's your plan, strategy for interview ? it is said that the answer should be very precise, neither too long, nor too short. communication protocoal (I2C, UART, SPI, CAN ) is asked in evey interview , How to explain in better way.

One of the best ways to answer a complex technical question like that is the same way you would handle it if you were teaching any subject:

First, give a brief overview of what it is and what it does.
define the different components or functions of the subject.
Explain briefly in turn what each part does, and how it does it.
Review how the components work together to do what you explained in your introduction.
Ask if there are any questions.

The most important thing is to know the subject well and to keep the answer accurate and concise. The interviewer does not want to listen to anecdotes, opinions and long winded explanations..
Practice by recording your answers on the subjects you are sure you will be asked. When you listen to the playback, you will hear what the interviewer will hear so try to eliminate awkward pauses punctuated with "ummm", "errr" or "aaah".

Good luck
