Welcome, one and all

  1. 1. WELCOME, ONE AND ALL… A quiz by Apratim Mukhopadhyay 1
  2. 2. PRELIMS This round is a written elimination round which will be used to select the top 6 teams for the finals. 10 questions will be asked to the teams concerned, and the top 6 teams on the basis of their scores will be selected for the finals. There will be 5 starred questions in the set, which will be used to break ties, if there are any. If the above fails to separate teams, the team to have got a particular answer wrong in the set will be eliminated first, and so on and so forth. If this too provides no conclusion to a tie debacle, we will have to have to have a toss. :p May the 6 best teams make it. All the best to everyone involved. Let’s move.
