Audience consisted of students from all years and disciplines. Hands shot up and answers were fired: right, wrong and a shade bit funny. No matter which category the answers were predominant in, the fun element was clearly visible.

Then began the serious part of the session… The Quiz

Rules and Regulations of “The Quiz”

ü Max. of 3 participants per team

ü 3 points for general questions and 4 points for star-marked ones

ü A final jackpot, a Su-do-ku round.

The quiz started off with a simple logical problem involving lions and deer.
As the quiz proceeded the questions tickled the participant’s grey cells and made sure that a competitive tempo started building.

The questions posed were multi-disciplinary, ranging from Mathematics to Philosophy, Science and technology to Science fictions, Business to Bitsians etc. To answer them one required a general touch in fields pertaining not just to Computer Science but also many other areas.

There were some “Photo-Connect” and “Decoder” problems which required crisp logic to arrive at the solution. The questions framed were really good and intellectually challenging. However, there were some extremely enthusiastic participants who discouraged quizmasters from giving clues to some questions which they planned to give. This clearly reflected that we had an intelligent audience.

The Final Su-do-ku round was a new addition in this event which came as a surprise to the audience and added quiet a twist at the end. A Su-do-ku puzzle was given which amounted to 10 points and a hidden word which has to be found using the clues amounted to 15 points. Many toiled a lot in the jackpot round but it proved too difficult for many of them who attempted it.
