ISB Trivia Contest

This weekend, we had the "Who Knows What Trivia Quiz" here at ISB. Each section was paired up with a Prof. and a nice number of people had turned up to cheer their respective section teams. Daman, Midha, Kanan and Vishal; thanks for all the help with organizing the event.

Section A came back from behind to give Section C a run for their money. But finally the huge lead Section C had built up, proved to be unsurmoutable. Section C won the Quiz beating its closest competitor by 40 points.

For those of you who came in late, here are the questions. Feel free to answer them using the comments section. Answers will be uploaded in a couple of days.

PS: Quite a few people have asked me about the source of these questions. While there is no one single source, I use a variety of reference sites which are considered the definitive works on a topic. These sites are:

I just tried the link and it is working. Maybe there was some problem with the hosting service provider when you tried it. Try again and it should work.
