This is a question from the pre-talk of MBB and I wonder what is the right approach for this type of question?

Thank you!

What is pre-talk of MBB?

Anyway, let's define market size of trucks as the number of trucks used in China domestically.

[Pop China] * [% adult] * [% drivers license or drives illegally] * [% with work] * [% working in logistics] * [% working in transport] * [% drive truck] * [1/number of people that share 1 truck for a company] * [1/life time of a truck] = Number of trucks per year in China. We can also time it with the $ amount of 1 truck afterwards.

A pre-talk is an additional round of screening before the traditional first round. Mostly fit questions with a mini case.
