Question 2
Kermit Schafer, an American writer and producer for radio and television
active during the years of 1950s and 1960s, is widely attributed to
popularizing the usage of the term ‘X’ in mainstream media. Schafer was
known for producing record albums going by the name of “Pardon My X”,
featuring a collection of actual clips from various television/radio
broadcasts. It is often stated that a particular incident from the 1930s, when
radio broadcaster Harry Von Zell accidentally mispronounced the name of
the then US President Herbert Hoover as Hoobert Heever, is said to have
inspired Schafer to start his collection of ‘X’, thus establishing it as a routine
word used to refer to such situations.
ID the term ‘X’.
Question 3
In the early 19th century, there were no standardised uniform for enlisted
men in the U.S. Navy. Hence, some sailors adopted a particular style of
clothing which proved to be very helpful. In the event of a sailor falling
overboard or having to abandon ship without a life vest, it could be quickly
removed in water without having to remove footwear.
In the 1970s, Sonny and Cher helped popularize this clothing in the US by
wearing them on their popular television show. With the onset of a
spectrum of revivalist fashion trends as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic,
this type of clothing was revived as Gen Z preferred comfortable clothes
over tight clothing to achieve petite silhouette.
What type of clothing that is being talked about?
Question 4
‘X’ is a device used to get infantry closer to the front lines of a battle zone
safely. They were used by multiple combatants during World War II. The
United States Army trialed X’s during the World War II Battle of Anzio. A
general commander of the 3rd Infantry Division ordered torpedoes
(submarines) to be cut in half for the purpose. Six torpedo halves, each
carrying one prone infantryman, were then chained together into a unit to
be transported to the front.
These were disliked by the infantrymen, who "felt like dead ducks" in them.
Their use was also sometimes impeded by rough ground.
What are Xs?
Question 5*
The top three U.S. burger chains have denied consumers the opportunity to
enjoy their burgers the optimal way due to exclusivity deals. Brand X
launched a proactive campaign by working with an origami artist to expertly
re-craft paper bags of the top three U.S. burger chains. X might not be on
the menu but it’s always in the picture.
Launched on National Burger Day, the images were strategically placed
outside the headquarters and stores of U.S. burger chains, and also in The
New York Post and across social media; lauded by the industry as one of the
best X campaigns in the history of the brand.
ID X.
[Image on the next slide]
Question 6
Earlier used only in the context of boasting, people nowadays use the slang
X (or to make things easier, throw in the emoji) to simply call out someone
on their bluff. A mainstay of the “hood” lingo, the term can be seen in
almost every major rap song over the past few years. A few lyrics from
Future and Young Thug’s collaboration in 2017 shows the slang in action:
“Yellow diamonds like banana, that's ________
Put some dirty in Mello Yello, ________
Rocking Maison Margiela's, that's __________
Red bitch, Cinderella _____________”
ID the term.
Question 7
Hussein Chalayan's interest in the relationship between the human body and
science has led to some of the most inventive runway shows ever. For his
autumn/winter 2000 fashion show "After Words", models transformed
_______ into dresses and hopped skirts. The event went beyond fashion,
becoming a breathtaking physical theatre in its own right.
Chalayan’s intention wasn’t to simply make a theatrical flourish but to
investigate the concept of displacement, since the show was inspired by
war refugees forced to leave their homes and carry their personal
possessions with them.
[Continuation on the next slide]
This transformative show blurred the lines between fashion and _______
and resonates with the human condition and its relationship with worldly
possessions.
ID the uniqueness in his costumes of this show.
Question 7
Question 8
Some scholars argue that the art of X has been around since the ancient
Egyptians while other evidence points towards ancient Greek culture. This
tradition began as a sign of respect and obedience to the gods. Later, the
Greeks started finding reasons to practice this action—war, peace, fallen
soldiers, women worth courting, and most commonly, a companion's
health. Though one might have heard that this tradition originated out of a
fear of poisoning- the idea being that the action involved would cause the
liquid from jugs to spill into one another; thus, the people you’re drinking
with wouldn’t poison you as they’d then be poisoning themselves, there is
no historical backing. Infact X itself wasn't a term until 16th century but the
addition of it to ____ within a jug was supposed to soak up some of the
acidity and improve its flavour.
ID the practice/tradition X.
Question 9
The physical act of _____ used to signify contempt in olden times. In
Tobias Smollett's The Adventures of Roderick Random, published in 1748, an
altercation is worded as follows:
"He looked back and pronounced with a faltering voice, 'O! 'tis very
well—damn my blood! I shall find a time.' I signified my contempt of him by
_____, which humbled him so much, that he scarce swore another oath
aloud during the whole journey."
[Continuation on next slide]
The more modern ironic sense appeared in the 1842 poem "The Ingoldsby
Legends" by the English clergyman Richard Barham, in which a Frenchman
inspects a watch and cries, "'Superbe! Magnifique!' / (with his _______)."
This usage was developed with the idea of suppressed mirth i.e. an act to
prevent an outburst of laughter.
ID the phrase.
Question 9
Question 10*
Flirting was a great art throughout many eras as this required subtlety from
both genders. In the 1800s, women, started using Xs to give the following
signals:
1. Drawing it across the cheek — I love you.
2. Drawing it across the lips — Desiring an acquaintance.
3. Dropping it — We will be friends.
4. Folding it — I wish to speak with you.
5. Opposite corners in both hands — Do wait for me.
6. Twisting it in the right hand — I love another.
7. Winding it around the third finger — I am married.
ID X.
Question 11
X was chosen as word of the year for 2023 by Dictionary.com, which is
chosen on basis of words in popular usage in the year. Before 2023, it had a
very generic meaning but as AI is evolving every minute, they added
different meaning to it which says- "to produce false information contrary
to the intent of user and present it as true/factual". X seemed a fitting term
as the rate at which the technology is growing, it seems like we are
experiencing X where AI can also produce its own fictitious world.
What was the word of the year of 2023?
Question 12
See how the speckled sky burns like a pigeon’s throat, Jeweled with embers
of opal and peridot.
See the white river that flashes and scintillates, Curved like a tusk from the
mouth of the city-gates.
Hark, from the minaret, how the muezzin’s call, Floats like a battle-flag over
the city wall.
From trellised balconies, languid and luminous Faces gleam, veiled in a
splendor voluminous.
[Continuation on next slide]
Leisurely elephants wind through the winding lanes, Swinging their silver
bells hung from their silver chains.

sumptuous festival.
FITB and also ID the city being described from a golden threshold.
Question 12
Question 13
In the battles of the early 1800's Napoleon's army was on the verge of
losing. One of the prime reasons for this was soldiers giving away their
positions in the night while trying to read war messages using lamps.
Therefore, a need to come up with a method to read such messages in the
dark without giving away the position was sensed.
A certain individual ‘X’ who was an inventor and a military veteran of the
French Army came up with a unique solution called "Night Writing" to help
the soldiers read war messages in the dark. Taking inspiration from this
system, ‘Y’ developed it further into the modern form as we know today.
What invention is being described here?
Question 14
The balsa wood panel designed with motifs associated with Rococo
architecture was recently sold in an auction for $700k. However, this sale
started a joke fest on social media with several people commenting “Had
the panel served its purpose it might have fetched a million”.

Question 16
Each year, a particular body selects a singular ___ that encapsulates current
cultural and design trends, influencing not only fashion but also various
creative industries worldwide. This process is a culmination of extensive
research, trend analysis, and and cultural considerations. According to this
body, X have the power to evoke emotions and convey societal moods.
Therefore declaring X every year creates a visual dialogue transcending
geographical and cultural boundaries.
ID X/Blank.
Question 17
TikTok CEO Shou Zi Chew recently testified before Congress on why the
app shouldn't be banned in the U.S. amid national security fears, that it is
potentially providing the Chinese Communist Party with data on millions of
Americans, including their whereabouts, and increasing their access to
disinformation.
In a five hour grilling session, he explains how TikTok would never provide
data to the CCP if asked. He cited his family life as a reason why data
protection is so important, especially for children. However, when asked if
his own children use TikTok, he denied and cited a rather technical reason
that doesn't allow his children to use TikTok.
What reason did the CEO give ? [Video in the next slide]
Question 18
The contemporary meaning of this word seems to date back to mid-19th
century. Back in those days circus shows were very common and popular
among the town folk and every time before a show in a particular town, the
circus ____(4) would travel around the town in their _____(5), attracting
the attention of the townsfolk. This as per them was a well-established way
of advertising and crowd pulling. Politicians back then believed that joining
such a group and parading through the town would in-turn help carry out a
successful campaign and thus shift the tide in their favor.
[Continuation on next slide]
This resulted in numerous politicians renting out a seat along with the
group. And soon this became a common ploy among them, with everyone
trying to jump onto this newfound act to gain the advantage. Over time the
word lost its literal meaning and has since been used to convey a totally
different meaning.
Identify the word being described.
Question 18
Question 19
The Tour De France (annual men's cycling race held in France) competition
during the 1920s saw its cyclists develop a very unusual practice of
consuming a particular item before the start of a race. This practice was
even more prevalent in cyclists who encountered a steep climb while racing
and seems to be associated with a potential increase in _____ (4)
________(8) and an ultimate addition to the endurance of the cyclist thus
enabling them to perform more efficiently or as was the popular opinion
among the common folk around that time. But over the following decades,
this practice receded and was eventually stopped after numerous research
reports stated the actual impact of the consumption of a ‘X’ on our body.
Identify what they consumed.
Question 20*
During World War II, members of the Royal Air Force (RAF) wore uniforms
with a clever and potentially life saving feature. This innovative feature was
an ingenious addition to the uniform providing a practical means of
navigation for RAF soldier in case they were shot down behind enemy lines.
If an RAF member found themselves in dire situation (unknown territory)
they could use this feature having made as 2 different kinds in order to
create a makeshift X. Further, floating it in a still pool of water like a tin lid
filled with water, they could determine cardinal directions, allowing them to
find their way and evade capture.
ID X and how it's made using the feature.

Question 1
In some Jewish beliefs, people of priestly lineage are forbidden from being
under the same roof as a X, as it would contaminate them with negative
energies. Due to an unusual interpretation of this rule, around 1,500
‘priestly’ families are unable to use the London metro system. This is
because the South Kensington station is connected to a Y, which contains a
type of X on display. And since the metro system is entirely underground,
entering any metro station would be considered being in the presence of a
X.
Despite requests from these families, local governments refuse to sever the
connection between the station and the Y, as they believe easy access to
scientific knowledge is of greater importance.
ID X and Y.

mathematician has found the solution of the famous problem. After
analysing the scene in meticulous details, she suggested these four steps to
find the solution that could have saved the protagonist a few hundred
dollars.
Step 1: First X should have measured the width of the stairs ( WS ), and the
width ( W ) and length ( L ) of the _____.
Step 2: X then should have used the equation to find out the minimum
angle ( T ).
T = 44.15064 – (11.94274 x WS) + (8.69119 x W) + (3.65961 x L)
Step 3: After carrying the ______ to the corner X reach a point where they
can’t move any more. When this happens X should have rested against the
corner.
Step 4: Here X should tilt the _____ with an angle greater than T. At this
point the vertical length would be smaller than horizontal length and X can
swivel the ______ without getting stuck.

Question 7
The ubiquitous presence of Xs throughout the city Pompeii in Italy has been
interpreted in many ways by different scholars .
One theory suggests that these Xs were used as a deterrent against the Evil
Eye, the Roman embodiment of bad luck. According to this belief, the Evil
Eye could be "fascinated" by wondrous, bizarre, and bawdy images, and the
Xs served to distract it from harming people. While classicist Mary Beard
proposes that they simply reflect a masculine society with penchant for
erotic art.
[Continuation in the next slide]
But the most famous interpretation posits that many X were likely to act as
advertisements for Y. These Xs resembled ___ (5/6) and served as simple,
easily understandable guidance for people, overcoming the language
barrier. This interpretation also gains validity from the existence of Y
situated at appropriate location wrt these Xs carved on walls and underfoot.
ID X, second blank and what was the use of X according to second theory.
Answer
X - Penis Shaped carvings
Blank- Arrows
Used to indicate the way towards
brothels
Question 8
During the mid 1990s when TATA Motors was flourishing in the automobile
sector, an individual named Sumant Moolgaonkar was one of the brains
behind the company's’ success, often known as architect of TATA Motors.
Being the chief executive of Tata Engineering and Locomotive Company
(TELCO), Sumant was always inclined towards a progress for the better
approach for the company. This saw him frequently skipping his lunch with
the top brass of the company and instead visiting highway dhabas to have
lunch with truck drivers (who drove TATA Trucks) and at the same time get
a real time feedback from them about their vehicles. He then later passed
on this information collectively to their R&D team helping the company to
improvise on their product in an overall sense. When his co-workers got to
know about this, the team decided to pay homage to Sumant.
What was this tribute to Sumant Moolgaonkar?
Answer
Their 1994 launch TATA SuMo was named after the initials of
Sumant Moolgaonkar.

ANIME
RULES
● This is a written round.
● The round consists of 6 questions based on Anime.
● Each question carries +10/0 points.
● QM discretion is finalised.
● There is no negative marking, so feel free to guess.
Question 1
The character Nami from One Piece is the Strawhat Crew's ship navigation
expert and carries a weather altering baton as her primary weapon. The
"Perfect Clima Tact" allows Nami to produce controlled weather
phenomenons such as heat, cold, lightning, etc. as offensive attacks against
her enemies. Her upgraded attacks are termed as tempos wherein she can
pinpoint more sophisticated attacks using only the basic elements named
above. An example is the Thunderbolt Tempo in which she sends precise
thunderbolts flying straight at her enemies over a wide range. The Mirage
Tempo: ____ _______(4,7) is an extension of the cool charge wherein she
makes a blanket of air to cover herself and generates illusions of herself in
varying shapes and sizes.
[Continuation in the next slide]
The author Eiichiro Oda has a knack for using appropriate terminology for
his story elements and same is the case here. The term is an Italian
translation of the witch, Morgan le Fay from the legends of King Arthur and
is exclusively used to refer to superior mirages over the horizon.
FITB.
Question 1
Question 2
Anime and manga have a lot of interesting tropes to depict certain
emotions. The famous Ahoge (idiot hair) depicts a low intelligence
character with a little spikey hair amidst a common hairstyle. A similar
emphasis has been put on ____(4) leaks by generations of mangakas.
Sleep is depicted with a rhythmically expanding and contracting bubble
while a perpetual drop hanging out depicts a sad/incompetent character.
However the most famous of this trope is the ______(9), a universal sign
of arousal in the medium.
[Continuation in the next slide]
Scientific speculations on the reality of this depiction has unilaterally come
to the conclusion that it is not feasible. There have been anecdotal evidence
of people experiencing ______(9) during overzealous sex, but if experts
are to believe, it is very unusual for an average person to end up like that.
PEDs like Viagra have shown evidence of inducing _____(9) as they
stimulate _____(5) flow in the body.
What is being talked about?
Question 2
Question 3
Mashle: Magic and Muscles" is an anime set in a magical world where an
individual's position within society is defined by their power and skill with
magic. Although it's a well-accepted fact that it takes many references, such
as using wands and wearing robes, from the Harry Potter series, opening
the gate for Harry Potter fans to delve into the anime genre, Mashle's
inability to use magic but possessing immense physical strength and power
makes him stand out against his rivals. The makers of this anime uniquely
added a reference that distinguishes Mashle from other magic users, much
like Harry did from other magicians, but with a twist.
ID the twist.
Question 4
This anime is named by combining Hetare (endearingly pathetic) and ___
which is also the main character of the show. Often portrayed as easy going
and weak in the allies, the protagonist is grandson of a very successful ruler
in olden times. X, along with Doitsu and Y are centre of attention in the
series, with Doitsu commanding, disciplining and training the protagonist,
but he just gives up and surrenders to Doitsu. Whereas Y is a reserved
person and alarmed by any affection. He is hardworking, fairly mature but
has a mysterious vibe.
Identify the general plot of the series/what is it based on.
Question 5
Gainaxing refers to the unnatural movement of ______(5, plural) when
responding to a minimal stimulus in a pleasingly exaggerated way. Such
stimuli can be walking, running, a strong breeze or even just standing. The
absurdity of this motion tends to attract a ton of attention.
A brainchild of the people at Studio Gainax, their OVA Top wo Nerae!
Gunbuster is recognised as its origin point. Over time, fans created another
term for measuring gainaxing. Based on a character in the gainax anime
Otaku no Video, the word Misty May was used to measure one full
______(6).
[Continuation on the next slide]
The phenomenon also lends itself into the realms of gaming with a generic
term called ______(6) Physics. It is a broad term about the computer
generated motion made by soft ______(6) objects and can be applied to
balls, hair, clothing, and etc. This is mainly used in today's games and
sometimes in movies.
Explain Gainaxing or FITB.
Question 5
When his wife asked him how he came about developing X, he mentioned
that his experience against supernaturally powered individuals' chakra
sphere attack inspired him to develop X as a counter. Aware of his childish
naming sense, his wife immediately rejected his draft "Halo Hair Whorl of
_______(7) Inspired by Frozen Desert Twin Style Sphere" and told him that
a technique to protect her should be named by her. Recuperating after an
intense battle, the couple sat atop a high roof, staring intently at their
village's major monument and hoping for their dreams. This was where the
name X was first said and became an immediate staple in this anime
universe.
ID X.

Question 1
The Confiteor is a prayer recited at the starting of mass in Roman Catholic
churches, which translates to- "I confess to almighty God and to you, my
brothers, that I have greatly sinned, in my thoughts and in my words, in
what I have done and in what I have failed to do, through my fault, through
my fault, through my most grievous fault".
In an unrelated story, Sir Charles James Napier was a British Major General
in command of the Indian army within Bombay. Born in 1782, the knight
had commanded a regiment of the British army against Napoleon, as well as
fighting against the US.
[Continuation in next slide]
Question 1
When he was stationed in India, Napier was tasked with stopping an
insurrection by Muslim rulers in a province of undivided India. Being a
capable commander, he easily won the battle. To inform his superiors of his
success, Napier was said to have sent a single-worded message back to
England: “Peccavi”.
Which region did Napier conquer? Put funda
Answer
“Peccavi” is the past tense in Latin for “to sin”, and can be translated
as “I have sinned”. Or more accurately, “I have Sindh.”
The pun has gone down in history as a clever line from Napier, but
it’s a misattribution. 16 year old Catherine Winkworth sent the
one-word line into the humor magazine ‘Punch’ and it was published
on 18 May 1844.
Question 2
War Thunder is a free-to-play online war game committed to accuracy,
having a mode with realistic vehicle and weapon physics, and a player-base
that is extremely invested in the minutiae of its vehicle simulations.
Discussions on the forum about particular tank specifics eg. Turret mantlet
thickness, rotation, penetrator values, etc. have been famously documented
to end up into a certain illegal territory. The posts proving their claims over
these realistic statistics get removed immediately to minimise the potential
harm to the involved people and the innocent bystanders on the forum.
[Continuation in the next slide]
One of the most famous of such discussions was about the Challenger 2
tank with a Royal Army commander chiming in with _____ (10) ____ (9,
plural) (the offense in question). Although unrelated to War Hammer,
instances of similar offense in China led to a 10 year prison sentence in
2014 and even a death penalty in 2016.
ID the offense/FITB.
Answer
Blank- Classified Documents
Offense- Leaking Classified Documents
Question 3

and they're 'round to about March. You see, them Needle Mens is _ _ _
from the Charity Hospital tryin' to git your body to work on. That's cause
stiffs are very scarce at this time of the year."
A quote from ‘The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks’ explains struggles a
certain group of people faced in US in 1800s, which seeps paranoia in them
till date. The one mentioned above was one of the ways to get the
resources to _ _ _ for studies. Another way to get a grab on these
resources is buying it off the owners.
Elaborate on this 2nd method and how it is ironic?
Answer

Irony- slaves thought they would be free after death, but still they
are traded.
Blank - medical students,
corpse used for studying.
Question 4
For millennia, the planets visible to the naked eye—Mercury, Venus, Mars,
Jupiter, and Saturn—filled out the solar system along with the Sun, the
Moon, and Earth.
Later, the scientific revolution primarily the Kepler’s Laws of Planetary
Motion led scientists in estimating the orbits and later the discovery of the
“invisible” planets Uranus and Neptune in the 19th century. However, this
also led scientists to believe that there was at least one more planet lurking
around the Sun, and this one was even closer: the planet Vulcan believed to
orbit somewhere between Mercury and the Sun due to a slight wobble in
Mercury’s orbit.
[Continuation in the next slide]
Question 4
With further research in astrophysics, and a congenital shift in existing
theories the cause of the wobble in Mercury’s orbit was later proved and
the existence of Vulcan was debunked.
ID the shift being talked about.
Answer
Shift from Newtonian Theory of Gravity to Theory of Relativity.
Question 5

the upcoming European Championship.
However, the _______ soccer federation and Adidas have stopped the sale
of ____________ jerseys with the number 44 because of its resemblance
with the country’s notorious past.
[Continuation in the next slide]
“People from around 100 countries work at Adidas. Our company stands
for the promotion of diversity and inclusion, and as a company we actively
campaign against, violence and hatred in all forms,” the Adidas
spokesperson said in a response to various users calling the design
intentional.
ID why Adidas had to stop the manufacturing this jersey.
Answer
They banned 44 jersey cause it resembled the SS sign.
Question 6
The Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan is a highly regarded 17th century
allegorical novel written during the time he was imprisoned for illegal
preachings. The protagonist Christian enters a town X, built by Beelzebub
(an allegory for Satan) where a Y is kept all year long with everything to a
human's taste, delight and lust is sold daily. The event, called XY, quickly
became an allegory for sinful acts in literature. The chapter in Little Woman
where Meg goes to her first party was titled “Meg goes to the XY.”
[Continuation in the next slide]
“At XY: From Bunyan to _____(9)” by Kirsty Milne talks about how a story
of Puritan prohibition could refigure itself as a celebration of cavalier
consumption? How is it that a kangaroo court, in which a man is martyred
for holding his own beliefs, could become an "aspirational showcase for
celebrity, wealth and power"?
ID XY, whose modern connotation is seen on glossy pages.

Question 8
Dr. Martin Luther King Jrs “I have a dream speech” is one of the most
famous addresses in world history. However, this speech and many other
addresses of his have remained off screen in the past few years.
In 2014’s Selma too, which is one major biopic about Martin Luther King
that was directed by Ava DuVernay, original monologues that sounded like
instances from his speech were used. For example, in the original speech,
King says, “Who murdered Jimmie Lee Jackson?”. But in the movie, instead
of the historical quote, King asks,”Who killed them?”. When DuVernay was
asked about these changes that were made, he, like many other filmmakers,
pointed to a nasty move by Steven Spielberg’s DreamWorks in 2009.
[Continuation in the next slide]
This nasty move has caused complications for many filmmakers in recent
years and hence, they are reluctant to work upon King’s biopic.
What was that nasty move by Dreamworks company which prevented King
from receiving the deserved attention?
Answer
Steven Spielberg's Dreamworks Company bought the film rights for
MLK's speeches in 2009
Tie Breaker
The origin of the word ‘X’ becomes very intriguing when one looks upon its
meaning in the contemporary world. The word originates from a 17th
century English trading game which involved 2 players and an umpire. The
players would present two possessions they would like to trade. The umpire
would then decide whether they were of equal value or not. Then the
owner of the lesser valued object would need to make up the difference
with the money and all 3 participants would place some forfeit money into a
cap. Now, if the 2 players agreed with the umpire’s valuation, they would
remove their hands from the cap with their palm open or else as a clenched
fist. Initially known as a three-word game over time, it came to be known as
a single word ‘X’.
ID X.

Q-Factor General Quiz-7th April 2024, Quiz Club NITW

  • 3. RULES ● This round contains 20 written questions. ● Fill out the details in the sheets provided (Team name, Team members’ names, Contact details). ● Each question carries +10 for a correct answer and no negative marks otherwise. Feel free to guess. ● Part points will be awarded wherever applicable. ● Inbuilt Tie-breakers are present in the quiz. ● The best 8 teams will be qualified for finals. ● Please refrain from any sort of malpractice (Googling, ChatGPT, discussion among teams, etc). ● QMs discretion is final.
  • 4. Question 1 This is an excerpt from New York Times 11th March 1907. In this the conclusions of some unusual experiment conducted by Duncan Macdougall is published. He used specialized beds with high precision scales. However his experiments would face significant scrutiny in today's landscape. ID what was the conclusion? [Image on the next slide]
  • 5.
  • 6. Question 2 Kermit Schafer, an American writer and producer for radio and television active during the years of 1950s and 1960s, is widely attributed to popularizing the usage of the term ‘X’ in mainstream media. Schafer was known for producing record albums going by the name of “Pardon My X”, featuring a collection of actual clips from various television/radio broadcasts. It is often stated that a particular incident from the 1930s, when radio broadcaster Harry Von Zell accidentally mispronounced the name of the then US President Herbert Hoover as Hoobert Heever, is said to have inspired Schafer to start his collection of ‘X’, thus establishing it as a routine word used to refer to such situations. ID the term ‘X’.
  • 7. Question 3 In the early 19th century, there were no standardised uniform for enlisted men in the U.S. Navy. Hence, some sailors adopted a particular style of clothing which proved to be very helpful. In the event of a sailor falling overboard or having to abandon ship without a life vest, it could be quickly removed in water without having to remove footwear. In the 1970s, Sonny and Cher helped popularize this clothing in the US by wearing them on their popular television show. With the onset of a spectrum of revivalist fashion trends as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, this type of clothing was revived as Gen Z preferred comfortable clothes over tight clothing to achieve petite silhouette. What type of clothing that is being talked about?
  • 8. Question 4 ‘X’ is a device used to get infantry closer to the front lines of a battle zone safely. They were used by multiple combatants during World War II. The United States Army trialed X’s during the World War II Battle of Anzio. A general commander of the 3rd Infantry Division ordered torpedoes (submarines) to be cut in half for the purpose. Six torpedo halves, each carrying one prone infantryman, were then chained together into a unit to be transported to the front. These were disliked by the infantrymen, who "felt like dead ducks" in them. Their use was also sometimes impeded by rough ground. What are Xs?
  • 9. Question 5* The top three U.S. burger chains have denied consumers the opportunity to enjoy their burgers the optimal way due to exclusivity deals. Brand X launched a proactive campaign by working with an origami artist to expertly re-craft paper bags of the top three U.S. burger chains. X might not be on the menu but it’s always in the picture. Launched on National Burger Day, the images were strategically placed outside the headquarters and stores of U.S. burger chains, and also in The New York Post and across social media; lauded by the industry as one of the best X campaigns in the history of the brand. ID X. [Image on the next slide]
  • 10.
  • 11. Question 6 Earlier used only in the context of boasting, people nowadays use the slang X (or to make things easier, throw in the emoji) to simply call out someone on their bluff. A mainstay of the “hood” lingo, the term can be seen in almost every major rap song over the past few years. A few lyrics from Future and Young Thug’s collaboration in 2017 shows the slang in action: “Yellow diamonds like banana, that's ________ Put some dirty in Mello Yello, ________ Rocking Maison Margiela's, that's __________ Red bitch, Cinderella _____________” ID the term.
  • 12. Question 7 Hussein Chalayan's interest in the relationship between the human body and science has led to some of the most inventive runway shows ever. For his autumn/winter 2000 fashion show "After Words", models transformed _______ into dresses and hopped skirts. The event went beyond fashion, becoming a breathtaking physical theatre in its own right. Chalayan’s intention wasn’t to simply make a theatrical flourish but to investigate the concept of displacement, since the show was inspired by war refugees forced to leave their homes and carry their personal possessions with them. [Continuation on the next slide]
  • 13. This transformative show blurred the lines between fashion and _______ and resonates with the human condition and its relationship with worldly possessions. ID the uniqueness in his costumes of this show. Question 7
  • 14. Question 8 Some scholars argue that the art of X has been around since the ancient Egyptians while other evidence points towards ancient Greek culture. This tradition began as a sign of respect and obedience to the gods. Later, the Greeks started finding reasons to practice this action—war, peace, fallen soldiers, women worth courting, and most commonly, a companion's health. Though one might have heard that this tradition originated out of a fear of poisoning- the idea being that the action involved would cause the liquid from jugs to spill into one another; thus, the people you’re drinking with wouldn’t poison you as they’d then be poisoning themselves, there is no historical backing. Infact X itself wasn't a term until 16th century but the addition of it to ____ within a jug was supposed to soak up some of the acidity and improve its flavour. ID the practice/tradition X.
  • 15. Question 9 The physical act of _____ used to signify contempt in olden times. In Tobias Smollett's The Adventures of Roderick Random, published in 1748, an altercation is worded as follows: "He looked back and pronounced with a faltering voice, 'O! 'tis very well—damn my blood! I shall find a time.' I signified my contempt of him by _____, which humbled him so much, that he scarce swore another oath aloud during the whole journey." [Continuation on next slide]
  • 16. The more modern ironic sense appeared in the 1842 poem "The Ingoldsby Legends" by the English clergyman Richard Barham, in which a Frenchman inspects a watch and cries, "'Superbe! Magnifique!' / (with his _______)." This usage was developed with the idea of suppressed mirth i.e. an act to prevent an outburst of laughter. ID the phrase. Question 9
  • 17. Question 10* Flirting was a great art throughout many eras as this required subtlety from both genders. In the 1800s, women, started using Xs to give the following signals: 1. Drawing it across the cheek — I love you. 2. Drawing it across the lips — Desiring an acquaintance. 3. Dropping it — We will be friends. 4. Folding it — I wish to speak with you. 5. Opposite corners in both hands — Do wait for me. 6. Twisting it in the right hand — I love another. 7. Winding it around the third finger — I am married. ID X.
  • 18. Question 11 X was chosen as word of the year for 2023 by Dictionary.com, which is chosen on basis of words in popular usage in the year. Before 2023, it had a very generic meaning but as AI is evolving every minute, they added different meaning to it which says- "to produce false information contrary to the intent of user and present it as true/factual". X seemed a fitting term as the rate at which the technology is growing, it seems like we are experiencing X where AI can also produce its own fictitious world. What was the word of the year of 2023?
  • 19. Question 12 See how the speckled sky burns like a pigeon’s throat, Jeweled with embers of opal and peridot. See the white river that flashes and scintillates, Curved like a tusk from the mouth of the city-gates. Hark, from the minaret, how the muezzin’s call, Floats like a battle-flag over the city wall.

The umpire would then decide whether they were of equal value or not. Then the owner of the lesser valued object would need to make up the difference with the money and all 3 participants would place some forfeit money into a cap. Now, if the 2 players agreed with the umpire’s valuation, they would remove their hands from the cap with their palm open or else as a clenched fist. Initially known as a three-word game over time, it came to be known as a single word ‘X’. ID X. (Image on next slide)
