You can answer this question with honesty, normally they know that it is quiet obvious that you would be applying some where else also.

Avoid discussing too much on this topic and try to divert their attention to something related to the job for which you are applying.

This question is generally asked to see your reaction. Better stay calm and cheerful and with a smile you can say yes absolutely sir with pleasure. But not now as he is not aware of my job search once I am selected you may call him for reference and I am sure you will get a positive response.

6. Why would you like to work for our organization?

This is the question where your prior research and homework about the company will come in handy. You might have already learned about the vision and mission of the company and it would be a great idea to relate your long term career goals to that of the companies. You can also talk about the job profile and help them understand your enthusiasm and passion about the domain you are stepping into.

Now this is a tricky question and you need to answer it to mark a positive impression. Generally they would put up this question to see if you are a job hopper. While answering this question you should describe each job as part of your career goal. Remember that you should never blame any of your previous employers. If needed you can even attribute your job change to conditions beyond your control.

Start by thanking the previous company for providing great learning experience and helping you enhance your skill sets. Than you can include that there is no more learning opportunity in the company to develop your skills and you think you need more responsibility to showcase your talents in the most optimum way.

10. Explain why should we hire you?

I agree the first thought that comes to your mind is "Because I am the best", but that is not what he wants to hear. Answer the question by talking about your talents and skills that match the job profile. Plus you can also include 2 to 3 related work experiences and how you excelled in it.
