He could have pointed anywhere on the table and said this is the centre of the table. Suppose, interviewer want to ask why this particular point is the centre of the table. The candidate is not compelled to answer the question, as the last question of the interview was "The exact position of the center of this table where you have kept your files".

That question was the last interview question so interviewer must not have to ask any further quesrions. If interviewer asked him "why so?" Then he will tell him "sir that was your last question"

he might have considered it as a cube and might have pointed the principle diagonal

he pointed at any point on the table. that point connects to the core of the table in a straight line.
