NTPC Electron Quiz- Delhi Regional Round

The NTPC Electron Quiz Delhi Round was a much meeker event than one expected. Only 32 teams came, of which a majority were B-Schools. The Quiz was business oriented with some dashes of general trivia thrown in.

The Top 3 teams- NSIT (Roshan and yours truly), IMT Ghaziabad and FMS qualified for the National Round to be held on 20th of this month.

Quizmaster Kunal Savarkar did a decent job of presenting the questions. NTPC was extremely hospitable - providing free tea, snacks, lunch and t-shirts to all participants. However , they would have done a much better job by publicising the quiz a lot more. Apparently, very few people were aware of the quiz taking place.
Sample Questions :

1
) Who wrote the book "What they dont teach you at Harvard Business School " ?

2) Identify this person, known as "The King of Junk bonds ".



3) Which Bank was founded in 1904 in San Francisco as Bank of Italy ?

4) Identify these people :
