Kya Aap In Paanch Sawaalon ke Liye Tez Hain?

Easyish questions. Easyish connect. For NSIT-CS people atleast :-)

1. Doonesbury's tribute to what?

They are quite obviously the blanks.





2.a.Identify the singer and the album

2.b.Identify this game which is the "P-Tanks" for the Macintosh.:-)


2c.
Identify the movie.



3.Quoting from Wikipedia:-

Independently from Immanuel Kant, he formulated the nebular hypothesis the origin of the solar system and was one of the first scientists to postulate the existence of blak holes and the notion of gravitational collapse

He is remembered as one of the greatest scientists of all time, sometimes referred to as a Newton of France, with a natural phenomenal mathematical faculty possessed by none of his contemporaries.



4a.
