  • 2. • C, who worked on B project has a synthetic element as well as a class of particles named after him. Paul Dirac gave these particles their name to honour C• Cions (the particles) include all leptons and *Ds• Among other things, D is the name of the dog in Honey I Shrunk the Kids
  • 3. • D is also a Star Trek character, and a type of robot in E• E is a British Science fiction programme produced by F• The Guinness Book of world records lists E as the longest running sci-fi show in the world and the most successful sci-fi series as well in terms of broadcast ratings, DVD and book sales and iTunes traffic

  • 5. • The term G originated in the late 1930s, but devices were considered ‘G’ only when compared to older devices• G is often represented by a number followed by the letter ‘p’ standing for progressive scan or ‘i’. We shall now refer to ‘i’ as *H• H would be apt to describe the type of questions in this prelims. When applied to image encoding, H is supported by a file format I.
  • 6. • I led to the growth of animations on the internet• I was introduced by Compuserve, which is now owned by *J• J had merged with Time Warner in 2000, but it was not fruitful and Time Warner spun off J into a separate public company in 2009
  • 7. • J was started off as Control Vide Corporation by Bill Von Meister• J’s sole product when it started was a gameline for the 2600 video game console produced by K
  • 8. • K was founded by Nolan Bushnell and Ted Dabney• Bushnell conceptualised a game called Breakout. Al Alcorn, the project manager asked L to design a prototype for $750• L asked his partner M to design the hardware and M designed it in 4 days
  • 9. • L and M later founded the world’s third largest mobile phone maker N• N released a platform O for its PDA in 1987• O was an English physicist who was actually deeply religious and wrote more on the interpretations of the Bible than he did on science.
  • 10. • O had a bitter dispute with P regarding the development of a field of mathematics• The royal society accused P of plagiarism but it was later found that O himself had written the concluding remarks on P.• However today we use P’s notations and credit both of having developed it independently.
  • 11. • P is now regarded as the most important logician since Aristotle and *Q.• Q wrote “the laws of thought” and is regarded as the founder of computer science.• Most programming languages have a reference to Q in their syntax
  • 12. • R is one such language which was originally called S, but was renamed R after a type of coffee due to trademark issues• S is a type of wood from which barrels for aging brandy, scotch and bourbon whisky are made• Wine makers face a great dilemma in choosing between American and French S

One of their products, the M&P 15 sport does not have a U• V’s pistols and revolvers are a standard issue to police and armed forces in several countries across the world• V is headquartered in *W, Massachusetts. W is also home to the Miriam Webster’s dictionary and although it appears in The Simpsons, it’s not the same one
  • 15. • The first six letters of W spell out a component used in mechanical devices• The mechanical device was studied by X, who discovered the law of Y• X described the law in the anagram ‘ceunosssttuv’. The law is used in designing the mechanical device more accurately
  • 16. • Even though Y is technically greater for materials such as steel, in everyday life, Y is associated with a class of materials known as Z.• In the 20th century, A produced many different types of Z.
