I think the problem is that it is impossible to gage overall skill based off any arbitrary number of fixed questions. I usually ask open ended questions so that candidates can show me what they are most skilled in.

“Tell me about an interesting problem you solved.”

“What is something exciting you learned lately”

If I have to do whiteboarding I would go with some kind of general knowledge use case. For example, measurements.
