Quiz at IGIT

first of all sorry for not posting the date of the quiz.

my computer and net were down.

Anyway back to the quiz.

First thing i have established abiut girls colleges

THEY DO REALLY GOOD WHEN THERE IS A QUIZMASTER AROUND.

Unfortunately, it was not in the case of IGIT alas.

Prelims were very harsh as they were mcqs on top of that related to the set theory questions and partly puzzles(something that goes very back in IGIT)

We qualified as 3rd highest scorers in the prelims

Now came the finals.

For the first time in my entire life i saw 12 teams in a final round of a quiz, whew.

Amazing rules of the quiz were overshadowed by the highly jovial anchor of the quiz who would rather do well on a ramp rather than a dias.

questions were good only with one major problem
you could get options and even if you answered wrong with options the question passed.
ingenious creation by IGIT

the quiz was an innovation in itself.

few of the questions were

who wrote 'the moonwalk'?
i missed a unique in cricket by just 6 runs when i was dismissed of the bowling of sachin tendulkar and caught by saurav ganguly,Identify?
apart from ferrari and renault which was the other team to register a win in season 2006?
