According to his biography, during his 1911 vacation in
Switzerland, author X came across a postcard that attracted his
attention. It featured a painting called Der Berggeist, meaning
"the mountain spirit".
The painting depicted a man with a long white beard, a large hat,
and a cloak, seated amongst boulders in the forest. Later on, this
postcard inspired X as he was creating his character Y, especially
in terms of appearance. Y went on to play a key role in X's most
famous novels.

MELAS Quiz 2023

  • 1. MELAS QUIZ Presented to you by Quiz Club NITW
  • 2. Rules ● The quiz has only one round with 20 questions. ● For each correct answer, 10 points will be awarded with part points being given wherever necessary. Fill out the G-form provided and submit it after all the questions have been presented. ● In case of a tie, in-built tie-breaker questions will be taken into consideration. ● There is not any kind of negative marking in the quiz, so feel free to guess the answers. ● Let’s not fall into a trap and dilute the fun of quizzing by googling :) ● The QM’s discretion is absolute.
  • 4. 01 Shown in the image is a shot from one of WWE's pay-per-view events. The match was just as any normal match would be but what got the attention of the viewers was the wrestlers outfit which was different from their usual in-ring gear. ID the reason behind this change. (Image in next slide)
  • 6. 02 According to his biography, during his 1911 vacation in Switzerland, author X came across a postcard that attracted his attention. It featured a painting called Der Berggeist, meaning "the mountain spirit". The painting depicted a man with a long white beard, a large hat, and a cloak, seated amongst boulders in the forest. Later on, this postcard inspired X as he was creating his character Y, especially in terms of appearance. Y went on to play a key role in X's most famous novels. Identify X and Y.
  • 7. 03 Certain theories suggest that an iconic song X was recorded in a bathroom to create an echo effect. Reflecting back, the singer blatantly squashed those rumours. In her words, “There is a false mythology surrounding my rendition of X. That Naushad Saab and I got the echo effect in the song by making me sing in the bathroom of the recording room. No such thing happened. During those days when songs were recorded with a huge live orchestra, the studios were stuffy enough. Singing from the bathroom would have been impossible.” ID the song which stands as landmark in Indian Cinema with a fearless choice from the production team at the time.
  • 8. 04 The artwork shown is one of Alexander Ross's (American comic book writer and artist) most famous creations. It was also the inspiration behind the 2017 poster for the Justice League movie. But Ross himself took aid from a different cover art which had been immensely popular during the late 70s. ID what served as an inspiration for Ross? (Image on next slide)
  • 10. 05 A collaboration between the sci-fi writer A.C. Clarke and Kubrick, the movie had a fascinating aspect about its antagonist, which both the men maintain as a mere coincidence. Company X was consulted during the production and had its logo on multiple props, but it insisted on maintaining its distance from the actual malfunctioning hardware in the plot of the movie. Clarke wrote in The Lost Worlds of 2001, “About once a week some character spots the fact that [coincidence] and promptly assumes that Stanley and I were taking a crack at the estimable institution… As it happened, X had given us a good deal of help, so we were quite embarrassed by this and would have changed the name had we spotted the coincidence.” ID the coincidence.
  • 11. 06 There are many speculations regarding how the author came up with the name X. Many speculated that it came from the 'oohs' and 'aahs' his stories produced from readers and listeners. Some claim that it comes from the word 'ounces' or Shelly's ‘Ozymandias’ or Charles Dickens' pseudonym ___. Little evidence says that the author has taken the name X from the letters marked on one of his drawers which he used to keep files in the alphabetical order. Give X?
  • 12. 07 The photograph here was taken as an inspiration for an album's cover. The photo is shot by Jonathan Mannion for a series by Jocelyn Bain Hogg depicting organized crime in Britain. Instead of the telephone and brass knuckles seen next to the ashtray in the original picture, a cigar, a pack of cigars and a microphone were placed. This album laid the foundation to one of the most iconic feuds in the rap industry and has achieved international acclaim and success. ID the album. (Image on next slide)
  • 14. 08 DaVinci’s world-renowned masterpiece, The Last Supper, has been said to hint at everything from Christ’s later years to the date the world will end. Italian musician Giovanni Maria Pala discovered what could very well be a little musical melody written into the painting. If you draw the lines of the staff across the painting, the apostles’ hands and the loaves of bread on the table are in the positions of _________. What do the hands and loaves of bread represent?
  • 15. 09 Amongst various English football figures of early 20th century was Herbert Chapman, widely regarded as one of the game's greatest innovators. During his time at Arsenal, he introduced several new training techniques and famously pioneered the X formation that serves as the foundation for most of the modern-day formations. Displayed on the next slide is a visual representation of the same, created to counter a law change in 1925 by playing three defenders(3-2-2-3) instead of two(2-3-5). ID the formation and what was the law change all about? (Image on next slide)
  • 17. 10 X is a term meant to describe the circumstances under which ground, naval, and air forces will enter into and continue combat with opposing forces. Formally, it refers to the orders issued by a competent military authority that delineate when, where, how, and against whom military force may be used, and they have implications for what actions soldiers may take on their own authority and what directives may be issued by a commanding officer. However, X was shown in a certain pop culture where X were implemented using tarot cards to set the final combat which eventually decided the fate of the protagonist. Id the pop culture reference.
  • 18. 11 Sweden saw a 10% increase in their inflation in May, and economists believe X might be the reason for this.
