    Most any topic on the CySA+, CASP+, GSOC, and GMON certifications is fair game for Tier 2 SOC Analyst. You also better know a bunch of different log files as event sources, how to read an email header, the basics of Threat Intelligence and Digital Forensics techniques, explain how you use a SIEM and a ticketing system, and what are the typical steps you use to conduct an investigation (at your present level). The "possible answers" are what you already know about these topics from your personal experience.
    And whatever you do, don't let the interviewer(s) realize that you are trying to Google your answers during your remote interview. You'll know that they've figured you out when they cut the interview short.

    Not all SOCs are built the same so I don't recommend trying to contemplate every possible question that they may not even ask. If you are invited to an interview based on the experience stated on your resume then just make sure that you know those things very well. Don't overthink it and good luck!
