1+1=2
1+2=3
1+3=4
2+2=3
2+3=5
2+4=6
3+3=5

Report of the above results:
The loop used for incrementing the first value is not implemented properly. on every 4th iteration, first value is not treated as appeared.
See the highlighted values. In first highlighted calculation, still it is treating first value as '1' while calculating. and at last one it is treating it as '2' instead of 3.

Interviewer I think you are wrong because you have mentioned when X=Y then it is adding like: X+Y-1. But in case of 1+1=2 it is not adding like X+Y-1, rather it is adding as X+Y. So, ans should be : Except 1+1=2 in all other case it is adding like X+Y-1.

We should also specify where x and y not equals to 1
