Previous Kernel Team guy for Microsoft here. ( Had to pull the weight, because, simply otherwise none would take the comment seriously ).

If Ola, or Flipkart, or Oyo asks you these, even including Amazon, get out of the interview.
The guy asking it, has no idea what he is asking, and almost rarely people would implement a monster as such.
One more thing. When I was a kid, I developed my own filesystem, and an Unix - shell. Those things are non trivial and they don't need it.
But if you want it - it is here : [ github.com/google/jimfs ]
PS. Ola is not Google. We should politely tell them to get over it.
