It would be rather impossible to give you specific coding problems, companies look for different things, and in my experience it is normally more than 5-10 lines.  Your best bet is to check out these questions/answers and see if you can programmatically come up with answers:

I think it is completely brilliant to ask candidate developers to write a 5 to 10 line program. Well, of course we do this at our small business, so clearly it is brilliant.
People lie on there resumes...or at least exaggerate plenty.

Technical questions are good to point, but they can be misleading and only gauge what someone knows superficially or have been working on lately.

As an interviewer I am more interested in the developer's best practices (testing, code reviews, error handling, etc), , favorite kind of work (refactoring, UI, database, etc), latest projects (good/bad why), pros and cons of tools, etc. I always ask about the last couple of technical books they read.

Since C# is an object-oriented language I expect them to be able to talk-OO, not necessarily in perfect terms, but I expect them to understand and apply OO concepts. If they want to write database babysitting applications with grid views they should stick with VB6 jobs.

Finally we ask them to write a small app in any language they specified. In C# it is often as simple as asking them to create a User class with two attributes: Name and Password. Then create a form with a button and a text box. When the user enters a value and clicks on the button it should use the User Class to determine access. Display whether access is granted or not.

This takes them about 13 lines of code. We let them know we are not looking for professional grade error handling, etc.  Just proof of C# knowledge.
