Quriosity- The LSR Quiz Review

Whenever I go for a quiz at a girls college, I do not have much expectations. The quizzes are generally more fact based(having been made out of Manorama Yearbooks and Competition success reviews) and the quiz handling is quite amateurish, given the fact that there are very few good female quizzers. However the hospitality is certainly better, the prizes are given away on the spot and sometimes, food coupons and/or assorted goodies are provided as well.

It is possible that LSR knew of their shortcomings when they decided to call on an external quizmaster, Mr. Manimugdha Sharma. And a good decision it proved. The quiz was well conducted and had a good assortment of questions. Apart from the technical glitch with playing audio questions, the quiz went off quite well.
Some of the questions(taken randomly):

1.Allasani Peddana, Nandi Thimmana, Madayyagari Mallana, Dhurjati, Ayyalaraju Ramambhadrudu, Pingali Surana, Ramarajabhushanudu, ____________. Fill in the blank.

2. The 5 books in a series by Wang Dulu:
Crane Frightens Kunlun; Precious Sword, Golden Hairpin ; Sword's Force, Pearl's Shine; ________________; and Iron Knight, Silver Vase. Name the 4th book.

3. When Coca Cola made a comeback in India, it started off at West Bengal. This was reported by a slogan similar to rival Pepsi's "yehi hai right choice baby". What was the slogan?

4. Which game uses the Staunton set pieces?

5. This person graduated from Osmania University, went on to IIM Ahmedabad, worked for an ad agency, wrote Mohammed Azharuddin's biography, presented for Doordarshan. Now a scribe. Identify.

Results:
1st: Debasish, Anang
2nd: Harish, Nitesh tied with Stephens team.

Hoping to see more girls colleges coming up with good quizzes.
