This is a behavioural interview question.
If you can't think of an example, it's ok to say so. If that's the case, either say how you would deal with it, or use an example where someone you know dealt with conflict well.
Most interviewers would look for:
What irritates you about other people, and how do you deal with it?
This question is common in job interviews and comes in many guises. Interviewers recognise that personal conflict is inevitable in the workplace and are interested in how candidates deal with it.
As with all answers to job interview questions, if you have an example, use it.
Try not to say that A or B irritates you. Instead, talk about the characteristics which you find hard, not the people. You might say:
"I find I get on with most people so it's not normally a problem. It's rather disappointing when people don't pull their weight I suppose and this has happened. In that instance I spoke to the person in private, explained that they were letting the team down and asked them to make more of an effort. They did."
