Quiz Quiz Ki Kismat

Am posting the quiz I made for the last quiz club meet. Have plagiarised 2-3 questions from quiznet archives as I was running short of time and ideas.Enjoy!


1. Rajendra Pachauri, 66 is an excellent medium-pacer , having taken more than 350 wickets in corporate cricket. The India Today reports that his statement that bikinis in Rio nowadays resemble dental floss has caused him some embarrassment. He is currently famous for holding a very important post due to which he is being taken rather seriously all over the world. Which post does he hold?

2. Although it had already celebrated its seventh birthday, _________was then asked to name it. Put on the spot slightly, he paused for a few moments, stared at the court dust, and then replied: "Juliette." Quite why remained a mystery last night. There were suggestions that the name may have recalled a former girlfriend with whom he is no longer on speaking terms. But those who were shouting "Martina! Martina!" as a suggestion were just being unkind. _________has a choice: he can either take Juliette home, or leave her in the Gstaad meadows - they will post him the cheese on a regular basis. The only condition is that _________ learns how to work her udders. They didn't teach him that in metropolitan Basle.

Fill in the blank and tell me which incident is being described.

3. Sylvester Stallone, Madonna, Kevin Costner, Bo Derek have a dubious distinction to their name. What?

4. Lintas was working on a brief for a bike to flaunt its great mileage and great power. The client brief clearly stated that no one would be interested in figures and hence figures should be avoided.

In 1970’s he started his psychiatric practice in Baltimore, Maryland. He is described as being short with red eyes and 6 fingers on his left hand. He has the habit of tilting his head to one side while listening, and his former caretaker Barney Jackson spotted him last in Buenos Aires in 1993.

“___________ is not a wicket keeper, he is a goal keeper, he should be given a free transfer to Manchester United”


9. This is a widely popular computer game which has been rewritten for nearly every platform today. The Windows version credits Robert Donner and Curt Johnson as the creators, though origins of the game can be traced back to The Cube in 1973.
