Five Shot


1."Peace is a lie, there is only passion / Through passion, I gain strength / Through strength, I gain
power / Through power, I gain victory/ Through victory, my chains are broken/ The Force shall free
me." In popular culture/fiction, this is called "The ------- Code". What?

2.In 2003 it was rumoured that Sony had shelved this singer's much-awaited third album because it
had no singles of commercial value. Her outraged fans began sending Sony's president Andy Lack
a fruit every day to remind him of her existence. The album, titled Extraordinary Machines, has since
popped up on the Internet and is now one of the top downloads on P2P networks. Name singer.

3.The French chemist Michel-Eugene Chevreul was born in 1786 and died in 1889 at the age of
nearly 103. He founded a branch of science using himself as a subject. Name the branch of science he pioneered.

4.His name, little known, is Prem Behari Narain Raizada (Saxena), son of Brij Behari Narain Raizada
of Delhi. He wrote a well-known ‘thing’ in his own hand, using a flowing italic style in the best
calligraphic traditions of our country. What did he write?

5.This term is used in the Americas for a normally dry stream-bed that is transformed into a temporary
watercourse after rain. In India this phenomenon is known as a Nullah while across Arabia and the
Sahara, the term Wadi is preferred. This term is also the surname of the president of an Asian country.What?
