Transcript of "AFMC Quiz Session (24 August 2013) - The Finals"

  1. 1. The Quiz Final Round
  2. 2. RULES  The first two rounds are Infinite Bounce of 12 questions each.  First round involves proceeding in a clockwise manner.  Second round: counterclockwise manner.  10 points for every correct answer.  +10 on every correct pounce.  -10 on every incorrect pounce.
  3. 3. Round One Infinite Bounce Two pounces allowed per team
  4. 4. 1  Illegal trade over the India- Bangladesh border is roughly of the same volume as the legal. Wheat, rice, sugar, and cough syrup account for 50% of the illegal trade. The other 30% is accounted for by just one commodity— which can fetch as much as $900 per unit. Many people make as much as $22 every time they transport a unit into Bangladesh.  This typically involves a jury-rigged mechanism of bamboo poles, iron hooks and old barbed wire because the units are bulky and need to be hoisted over a 1- foot high fence. In 2008, the BSF captured about 70000 units, worth $63 million, but had to auction them –where they were bought back by the same people who tried smuggling them in the first place.  What?
  5. 5. Cow (Beef)
  6. 6. 2  A _________ is a dessert of Australian origin.

  10. 10. 4  ____________ is the misleading marketing practice of including a minuscule amount of an active ingredient in a cosmetic, dietary supplement or food product, insufficient to cause any measurable benefit.  The advertising materials may claim that the ingredient is helpful and that the ingredient is contained in the product, both of which are true.  However, no claim is made that the product contains enough of the active ingredient to have an effect – this is just assumed by the purchaser. Thus, while misleading, it is typically legal.

  14. 14. 6  _____ has been defined as, ―An object consisting of an axle connected to two disks, and a length of twine looped around the axle, similar to a slender spool.  It was used as a weapon in the Philippines in the 16th century.
