X strongly opposed the All-India Muslim League's demand for
the partition of India. When the Indian National
Congress declared its acceptance of the partition plan without
consulting the Khudai Khidmatgar leaders, he felt very sad and
told the Congress "you have thrown us to the wolves”. He spent
much of the 1960s and 1970s either in jail or in exile. Upon his
death in 1988 in Peshawar under house arrest, following his will,
he was buried at his house in Jalalabad, Afghanistan. Tens of
thousands of mourners attended his funeral, marching from
Peshawar to Jalalabad, although it was marred by two bomb
explosions killing 15 people. Despite the heavy fighting at the
time, both sides of the Soviet war in Afghanistan, the communist
army and the mujahideen, declared a ceasefire to allow his
burial. Give X.

extending north to Nepal, a distance of about 2,400 kilometres (1,500 mi).
This survey was started by William Lambton in 1806 and it lasted for several
decades.
The Great Trigonometrical Survey was a project which aimed to measure the

the infantry officer William Lambton, under auspices of the East India
Company. Under the leadership of his successor, X, the project was made a
responsibility of the Survey of India.

objections, by the Royal Geographical Society. Y was named by X's
successor, Andrew Scott Waugh, in his role as the Surveyor-General of India.
What is X?
Among the many accomplishments of the Survey were the
demarcation of the British territories in India and the
measurement of the height of the Himalayan giants: Everest, K2,
and Kanchenjunga. The Survey had an enormous scientific
impact as well, being responsible for one of the first
accurate measurements of a section of an arc of longitude.

appeared in 4 films, each bearing his surname in their
titles. Name this Character.
In the preface to a book published in 1998 (it was a compilation
of the first season), he wrote:
“I clearly recall my impressions of it when I first saw it, on a grey
day, sunk in a sofa at my sasural in Surrey. This was way back in
1985. The effect was electric. And this was certainly not for
idiots”.
Name the book and author.
It is an ancient Indian treatise on statecraft, economic policy
and military strategy, written in Sanskrit. The text was

In 1984 LA Olympics _________ ran a promotion entitled "When the U.S.
Wins, You Win" where customers scratched off a ticket with the name of an
Olympic event on it, and if the U.S. won that event then they would be given
a free item: a ________ sandwich for a gold medal, french fries for a silver
medal, and a Coca-Cola for a bronze medal. The promotion became a near
financial disaster due to the Soviet boycott which led to the U.S. winning far
more Olympic medals than expected.
This promotion was parodied in the The Simpsons episode "Lisa's First Word",
where Krusty Burger runs a similar offer. The promotion was intended to be
rigged so that prizes would only be offered in events dominated by
the Eastern Bloc, but the Soviet-led boycott causes Krusty to personally lose

which Homer retorts "I like those odds!" Chief Wiggum also exclaims that he
could kiss Carl Lewis, who won four gold medals at the Games.

remaining 51 have been draws. Z also lead in terms of trophies
won, with a total of 64 compared to Y's 18, including a record 20
English league titles, 12 FA Cups and 21 FA Community Shields.
A large number of non-competitive X’s have taken place. The
majority of these occurred during the Second World War, when a
total of 44 matches were played between the teams. In recent
years, non-competitive matches between the teams have
generally been testimonials, such as those for Paul
Lake and Denis Irwin. In 1978, for Colin Bell's testimonial, players
from Y and Z lined up side by side against a combined Liverpool
and Everton team. I’d X.

year it hosts more than 390 shows in the main auditorium, including
classical, rock and pop concerts, ballet, opera, film screenings with live
orchestra, sports, award ceremonies, school and community events,
charity performances and banquets.
The Hall was originally supposed to have been called the Central Hall
of Arts and Sciences, but the name was changed to the X of Arts and
Sciences by Queen Victoria upon laying the Hall's foundation stone in
1867, in memory of her husband consort, Prince X who had died six
