Q1 The "X" Clock is an octagonal clock in Jersey City, New Jersey, United States, with a diameter of 50 feet / 15.24 meter promoted as being the largest clock in the entire world. It is situated in front of the site of the former headquarters of conglomerate "X" which until the 1980s was based out of Jersey City. It is fifty feet in diameter, faces the Hudson river harbor, and is clearly visible from Manhattan's west side.The current "X" Clock was built in 1924 to replace an earlier, smaller clock designed by "X" engineer Warren Day and constructed by the Seth Thomas Clock Company for the centennial of the "X" Company in 1906. That clock, second only in size to its replacement, was relocated to a "X" factory in Clarksville, Indiana, where its future is now unknown as the factory is closing.As of 2005, the "X" Clock stands on an otherwise empty lot; all of the other old buildings in the complex were razed in 1985, when "X" left New Jersey. There are currently plans to move the clock in order to use the lot it stands upon for other purposes. The lot is in the downtown area, and the clock itself is 100 meters away from the Goldman Sachs Tower, the largest skyscraper in the state of New Jersey. The construction of that building in the early 2000s forced a minor relocation of the clock southward to its current location, and a significant reduction in the size of the "X" advertisement attached to it. Goldman Sachs now maintains the clock.

Q12 It might seem like a pushover on today, but twoand-a-half decades back, it was the product which aroused envy, excitement and a sense of achievement. For the middle class, X was the fourth addition to the great Indian dream—roti , kapda, makaan and ‘meri X’ .For those who owned the Product, it was not X, but ‘dinky’ —the small Product, which changed the Sectors landscape. The product which started as a single man’s obsession to launch a people’s prodcut and was caught in the political quagmire, proved its worth with the Government selling its stake and earning handsomely last year.It has lived up to the expectation of thousands of consumers who have owned a X over the last 25 years. It’s been a long journey for a prodcut that in many ways symbolised the change that India has embarked on since the mid-eighties . It’s not just a popular product or a popular brand but a product that has in some ways changed the landscape of the very nation. According former MD of the company, the X has been a great unifier.Owning a X became a status symbol and the product became the cynosure of all neighbourhood conversations.It took a person 3 years of waiting to get the product. It also brought out a sense of competition amongst the middle class which was a rarity considering the socialist environment prevalent in the eighties and early nineties.
