  4. 20. Q3 <ul><li>X and Y were rivals in a sport for a long time. After retirement X came up with Lean Mean Fat Reducing Grill machine which went on to earn $100 million in sales since 1995.

  5. 21. Q4 <ul><li>They were famously the first British professional club to wear a sponsor’s logo on their shirts, agreeing a deal with Hitachi in 1979. In the years since, the club has had relatively little variation in sponsorship deals — linking up with Crown Paints and Candy before signing their current deal in 1992 — a deal which is the longest standing current agreement in English top-flight football. Name Club and the sponsors? </li></ul>
  6. 22. <ul><li>It is said that any athlete that has appeared on the cover of this magazine suffers a slump or dip of form for varying lengths of time. The most common explanation for the perceived effect is the observation that athletes are generally featured on the cover at the pinnacle of their careers, so future performance is likely to be less impressive by comparison. This subsequent decline in performance would then be perceived as being related to, or even possibly caused by, the appearance on the magazine cover. This perceived correlation would be present for a statistically significant number of featured athletes. This effect is related to the statistical phenomenon of regression toward the mean. To counter this the magazine addressed their own cover jinx in a 2002 issue that featured a black cat on the cover. Which magazine? </li></ul>

  11. 30. Q4 <ul><li>The idea for X was spawned in 1985, while founder Thomas G. Stemberg was working on a proposal for a different business.
