QN 9. X is real while Y is fictional. It cannot
be said that X inspired Y or vice versa.
However, X and Y share a lot of common
themes with each other. Both were
essentially good guys, battled cancer and
managed to survive the same. They were
involved with drugs in different ways. Both
indulged in threatening and intimidating
their colleagues and friends for separate
reasons. They were also arguably the best
at what they did. Identify X and Y.
QN 10. Some of X‟s most famous comments
were made during the 1999 UCL final. Just
before the first goal, he said “Can
Manchester United score? They always
score.”. And again, just before the winner
was scored, he said “As things stand, we‟re
going into extra time with the golden goal
hanging like a massive shadow over this
final, unless Ole Gunnar Solksjaer can
conjure up another”. And of
course, Solksjaer obliged. ID X

compressions per minute needed for a CPR.
