Hansraj freshers' final

  1. 1.  Finals.
  2. 2.  3 Rounds. Round 1: Infinite Pounce/Bounce. 20 Questions clockwise. Round 2: Differential. 6 Questions. Round 3: Infinite Pounce/Bounce. 20 Questions counter-clockwise. Rounds.
  3. 3.  Oh Ho, POUNCE-ite.
  4. 4.   In 2010, it was discovered that male mouse urine contains a specific pheromone that invokes inherent sexual attraction by stimulating memory of the female mice thereby conditioning them to the airborne odors of an individual scent owner. The protein itself was named after the archetypal cold and seemingly arrogant romantic hero, the protagonist of a Regency era novel. What protein/character?
  5. 5.
  6. 6.   Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice Darcin/Mr. Darcy
  7. 7.   Nilambur is a town in the Malappuram district of Kerala which is home to Conolly’s Plot, the oldest teak plantation in the world and the Teak Museum, the only one of its kind in the entire world. Nilambur’s teak wood has traditionally been used by a 108 year-old company that manufactures most of its products on special orders. Wood from a single tree is used exclusively in a single product so as to maintain uniformity of grain, colour and age. Each item is said to feature up to 41 different wooden panels and teak from a single tree pushes the price tag up by at least 2 lakh. What company?
  8. 8.
  9. 9.   Each car’s wooden interior would use the Nilambur teakwood. Rolls-Royce
  10. 10.   In 1941 Jake LaMotta was rejected for military service because of mastoid operations on one of his ears. He started professional boxing and rose to fame after defeating Sugar Ray Robinson in 1943 and went on to win the World Middleweight Championship in 1949 successfully defending it twice in the following year before finally losing it to Robinson in 1951. His autobiography Y (1970), was made into a famous Oscar winning 1980 Martin Scorsese film. In 1990 he was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame. Y?
  11. 11.
  12. 12.
  13. 13.  Jake LaMotta; Raging Bull
  14. 14.   When he was called up to replace the Gujarat captain who was injured on the morning of the match he scored hundreds in both innings of his debut, becoming the second man after Arthur Morris to do so. He led India to a series win against England in 1961-62 and captained the side to West Indies the same season. However, this Indian Captain never played a test for India after being hit on the skull by a delivery from the West Indies fast bowler Charlie Griffith. Who are we talking about?
  15. 15.
  16. 16.  Nari Contractor
  17. 17.  What is this ritual? Funda
  18. 18.
  19. 19.   Satanic ritual to convert deceased person (in grave) homosexual. Was done to protest Westboro Baptist Church activities – convert the founder’s deceased mother into a lesbian.
  20. 20.   In 1956, Al Fieldstein took over Y magazine. He recalls ;  ―This kid was the perfect example of what I wanted. So I put an ad in the New York Times that said, "National magazine wants portrait artist for special project." In walked this little old guy in his sixties named Norman Mingo, and he said, ―What national magazine is this?‖ I said ―Y,‖ and he said, ―Goodbye.‖ I told him to wait, and I dragged out all these examples and postcards of this idiot kid, and I said, ―I want a definitive portrait of this kid. I don't want him to look like an idiot—I want him to be loveable and have an intelligence behind his eyes. But I want him to have this devil-may-care attitude, someone who can maintain a sense of humor while the world is collapsing around him.” I adapted and used that portrait, and that was the beginning.‖ Which kid is being talked about?
  21. 21.
  22. 22.   ALFRED E NEUMAN  MAD MAGAZINE
  23. 23.  Who’s in this picture? put Fundae.
  24. 24.
  25. 25.   That was the real Lorraine Warren and Anabelle doll.  The Conjuring is based on it. The Conjuring
  26. 26.   X, debuting in 1991, was one of very few shows that pictured observant, identifiably Jewish families. Jewish and Christian religion groups gave the show high praises for their special holiday episodes. Nonetheless, at one point the Anti-Defamation League and The Washington Post editorial page castigated the series for its depiction of Tommy Pickles' maternal grandparents, who purportedly looked like Nazi-era depictions of Jews. Steven Spielberg described X as "sort of a TV Peanuts of our time."
  27. 27.
  28. 28.  Rugrats
  29. 29.   X has been noted to cause the brain to involuntarily picture combinations even when the player is not playing (called the X effect). According to research from Dr. Richard Haier, prolonged X activity can also lead to more efficient brain activity during play. Players lose a typical game of X when they can no longer keep up with the increasing speed and eventually Top Out. What’s X?
  30. 30.
  31. 31.  Tetris
  32. 32.   FFC Frankfurt is the most successful club in the competitions history, winning the title 3 times. The reigning champions of the competition are VfL Wolfsburg, after beating Olympique Lyon 1-0 in the 2013 Final. And so far, Germany is the only country, which has clubs who have won this version and its counterpart in the same year. What?
  33. 33.
  34. 34.
  35. 35.   He has become a cult comic character in Indian cinema and has gathered a large fan following. Aniruddha Guha of DNA called it the best character portrayed by X. "Y, aapka ghagra," the lead character, tells him at one point, referring to his black cape. "Uthhata hoon", is his straigthforward reply. His attire is a mix of a superhero and a pirate. X and Y?
  36. 36.
  37. 37.  X: Shakti Kapoor, Y: Crime Master Gogo
  38. 38.   John Nettleship was X’s chemistry teacher in school. So it makes a bit of sense that X would use her former chemistry teacher as the inspiration. Nettleship did not know he was the inspiration for the character until the films came out and his students, along with his wife, pieced things together. X’s mother actually worked as an assistant in the chemistry department under Nettleship, so we can’t help but wonder what the real life professor, who died in 2011, thought about the revelation that his character was in love with the protagonist’s mother. This was an inspiration for which character?
  39. 39.
  40. 40.  X: JK Rowling; Severus Snape
  41. 41.   Like the thylacine, Xs were once extremely abundant (a single flock could number in the millions) and they were found all across the Eastern and Central United States in the 1800s. But through the unfortunate combination of being both delicious and easy to kill, they were also hunted by the millions, and despite conservation efforts in the early 1900s, there soon weren’t enough to maintain a sustainable population.  Right now, Xs are the most likely candidate for de- extinction. They have two important things going for them: We have relatively well-preserved DNA samples, and there are other closely-related species that can serve as a surrogate.
  42. 42.
  43. 43.  Homing/Messenger Pigeons
  44. 44.   This is the star of India Insignia , a variant of it is still used by the BCCI as its logo as well as the royal yacht club Bombay. What was it originally used for ?
  45. 45.
  46. 46.  India’s Emblem during the British rule.
  47. 47.   While we may attribute X cooking to the Japanese, it was actually a Portuguese innovation. Evidence lies in old Moorish cookbooks from the 13th century that feature X recipes. The word ―X‖ is actually thought to have derived from the Portuguese word ―Y‖ which means ―Lent.‖ This makes sense, as the Catholic population would eat fish on Fridays and eventually decided to fry it (possibly because everything tastes better when it’s fried). Give X.
  48. 48.
  49. 49.  X: Tempura, Y: Temporas
  50. 50.   The X is from Irish mythology and are usually seen as female spirits. They were considered to be omens of death and were believed to have come from the ―otherworld‖. They are generally thought to be remnants of an ancient Celtic pagan religion in which they were minor gods, spirits, or ancestors. In English they are often referred to as fairies. According to legend, Xs will wander around the outside of a house wailing when someone inside is about to die.
  51. 51.
  52. 52.  Banshee
  53. 53.   X is a small town in Canada named after the Roman god of fire, not pointy-eared aliens. And then Y arrived. After the show became a global phenomenon, X decided to get itself some of that sweet nerd money. Since then, the town has developed Y fever, building a giant Enterprise and a Y walk of fame. Even people from the show took note. Z wanted one of the earlier Y films to be screened in X, and when it was discovered that the town didn’t have a theatre, they flew hundreds of residents to the premiere. The town even holds an annual day commemorating Y’s protagonist.
  54. 54.
  55. 55.  X: Vulcan Y: Star Trek Z: Leonard Nimoy Annual Spock Day celebrated.
  56. 56.   In the Middle Ages and late 1700s, being sent to work in Spanish mines containing X formations was widely considered a death sentence because X was the one of the most toxic minerals to handle on Earth.  The name of the crystal means dragons blood, and it is the main ore of Y. Forming near volcanos and sulfur deposits, the bright red crystals signal danger of the worst kind. X may release pure Y if disturbed or heated, causing tremors, loss of sensation and death.  Give me X and Y.
  57. 57.
  58. 58.  Cinnabar; Mercury
  59. 59.  This is a painting by Henri Matisse called La Danse. How can we associate it to sports?
  60. 60.
  61. 61.  Rio 2016 Olympics
  62. 62.   The US Army, instead of spending millions developing controls for their devices, use Xs to control their drones. Since they’re so well designed and intuitive, there’s virtually no point in using anything else. In a British Army recruitment video, an eagle-eyed viewer noticed a split-second shot in which a soldier uses what appears to be an X to control a drone. When he wrote to the Army asking why, they claimed that it wasn’t an X. They just so happened to invent/use something that was exactly the same because it was better than whatever alternative they happened to have at hand.
  63. 63.
  64. 64.  X-Box Contollers
  65. 65.
  66. 66.
  67. 67.   2n + 5 Differential format. Where n is the number of teams that don’t answer. At least one team must get it right, for this to apply.  If 1 team gets it then +15  If 2 teams get it then +13 for each  If 3 teams get it then +11 for each  If 4 teams get it then + 9 for each  If 5 teams get it then +7 for each  If no one gets it, 0 for each Differential Round
  68. 68.
  69. 69.   The word Y had started being used in the sense we use it today because of its origin.  Before the invention of guttering roofs were made with wide ______, overhangs, so that rain water would fall away from the house to stop the walls and foundations being damaged. This area was known as the Y. The large overhang gave good cover for those who wished to lurk in shadows and listen to others’ conversations. Since the area under the ______ was considered part of the householder’s property you could be fined under Anglo- Saxon law for being under them with the intention of spying. Y?
  70. 70.   This perpetuates the name of the eighteenth-century physician Franz X of Vienna. He believed that a magnetic force flowed from the stars to act on us all and that diseases were caused by blockages stopping the magnetic fluid flowing through the body. He called the force ―animal magnetism‖, a term we still sometimes use for people with strong personalities.  In essence, X was, without realising it, putting his patients into a trance and giving them post-hypnotic suggestions to clear up psychosomatic ailments. His name thus entered language and became an alternative term for Hypnotism. What term?
  71. 71.   Back in the 14th century though, Xs were the backbone of agriculture. That is to say, they were the guys who worked on farms. The word X is actually an old French word that pulls its roots from Latin for ―country house‖.  Over time, the meaning of the word gradually changed: Farm workers were poor, practically peasants. Peasants, being poor, are untrustworthy. Untrustworthy people commit crimes. And eventually we ended up with the modern day definition of X.
  72. 72.   Ironically the word is derived from the name of one of the great scholars of the middle ages, John X Scotus a philosopher and theologian whose thinking was so profound he was given the nickname Doctor Subtillis, the Subtle Doctor. His teaching remained influential from the 14th century until the Renaissance when more modern theories gained prominence. Those who clung desperately to his teaching were mocked for their seeming inability to modernize, or learn at all. They became Y and a new word was born. Y?
  73. 73.   Though, one example of the use of the phrase would be in the 1994 cult classic X where it meant to convey something entirely different, what common phrase usually when used by someone, conveys their desire to be excused from an uncomfortable or awkward conversation or situation?
  74. 74.   The hero Theseus was given a ball of thread to help him find his way out of the labyrinth of Minos. By following the trail of thread he left behind him he was able to navigate his way to the exit. The word X then became associated with anything which might hint at the solution. X?
