Reply should be more convincing than pleasing which could be given with an acceptable reasoning. It is understandable that money and work both have their own relevance in human life. The interviewer wants to check the orientation of the candidate and their inclination towards money and work. The candidate need to give a balancing response.

A reply supporting only work means that the candidate is sincere and might work dedicatedly, but not weighing money at all means the candidate is not very much honest in their reply. This might also give way to the interviewer to negotiate on their salary structure claiming that they don’t weigh money and would work even without additional incentives and appreciations from time-to-time. On the other hand. Over inclination towards money might leave an impression of greediness in the candidate. It should not make the interviewer feel that the candidate might go to any extreme for money and might compromise of their dedication, honesty and sincerity, which would prove fatal for the candidate.

It would be better to balance both, like working with utmost dedication and sincerity to utilize the potential and talent for the benefits of the organization is the in-built quality, but it would be always appreciable if the organization recognizes the caliber of the employee and reward them from time-to-time for their output and performances. Valuing work more would itself add money. So, the candidate does not need to chase money separately for their requirements.
