A Fistful Of Quizzes


This is a small attempt to review quizzes that have happened in this semester,and provide the QMs with some "feedback" :).Its obviously at your discretion to take it positively or otherwise :P
All ratings will be on a total grade point of 5.

I.LHMC Cobweb 2009
QM:-Bhavna Seth
Seeing that this year saw a surge in the number of excellent female quizzers,an excellent quiz was expected one of the better quizzers from DPS RK Puram :)
Content:-
4/5. Excellent Questions on a wide variety of topics
Presentation:-1.5/5. It would be better if the Quizmaster learns to manage a quiz decisively,and have proper rules decided before the quiz.But that comes with experience and attending more quizzes.
Prelims:-3/5. Though they were criticized by quite a few people,I liked them and am not ready to pan them just because there's a mentality as to what a Prelims "should be" like.
Sample Questions:-
1.Identify
2.A mercury solution was commonly used during the process of turning fur into felt, which caused the Ys to breathe in the fumes of this highly toxic metal, a situation exacerbated by the poor ventilation in most of the workshops. This led to something happening,which also gave rise to a phrase.What phrase?
(Y has obviously been erased to make it slightly difficult,though it really isn't)
3.Who is known as the "Non Flying Dutchman"
4.A connect on Parsley,Sage,Rosemary and Thyme-leading to Scarborough Fair :)

II. AIIMS Science Quiz
QM:-
Tejas Suri
Content:-3/5.Pretty reasonable content for a science quiz
Prelims:-3/5.Very well framed questions like the one on Chernobyl and Aardvark:P
Presentation:-3/5.Should get to start using Powerpoint,instead of the folder methods.
Sample Questions
1.By what name is this lady known?
2.The three latin phrases are different ways of putting which law?

"Pluralitas non est ponenda sine neccesitate"
"Frustra fit per plura quod potest fieri per pauciora"
"Entia non sunt multiplicanda praeter necessitatem"

3.Which band sings the OST of the TV show "The Big Bang Theory"?

III. Hansraj Ecolloqium 2009
QM:- Illuminati Quiz Society
Content:-3.5/5 for a little too lateral avoidable connect on Radio Stations
Prelims:-4/5
Presentation:-3/5
Sample Questions
1.The X is named after the Mexican town of Xalapa. Xalapa is itself of Nahuatl derivation, formed from roots xal-li "sand" and a-pan "water place".What?
2.Identify this economist
3.The term X has been used to refer to the country itself, and to the years associated with the boom. The first recorded use of the phrase is in a 1994 report by Kevin Gardiner.The X period has also been called "Ireland's Economic Miracle".What is X?

IV.LSR Tarang 2009 General Quiz
QM:- Manimugdha Sharma
Content:-4/5.Overall,the quiz covered some very good ground.
Prelims:-2.5/5.Quite ordinary
Presentation:-3.5/5.Well organized as always
Sample Questions
1.What first are William Herschel and Rajyadhar Konai associated with?
2.Identify this painting and give a cinematic connection to the same.
3.X earliest identified use of the exact phrase dates from 1942, in the Investigation of the National Defense Program: Hearings Before a Special Committee Investigating the National Defense Program,by Admiral Emory Scott who said "You have to increase from 7.72 to 12 for the average at the bottom of that fifth column, for X". This use refers to the total output statistics for the nine new shipyards that produced "Liberty Ships" with unprecedented speed, crucial to the course of World War II. It is thus far undetermined whether this literal use gave rise to the transferred, metaphorical, figurative sense.
Give vus X?

4.A very nice Connect-that conjoined Hamlet(first script),King Arthur's Excalibur and a whole other bunch of things-to Phantom:)

V.Stephen's Quizotic General Quiz 2009
QM:-Mit Chowdhury,CLC Law Faculty,2nd year,Law Centre

Highly rated by a lot of quizzers.Can't personally rate it as I didn't attend the quiz.
Sample Questions
1.“Whenever I was in the field, no one really knew I was doing it except one or two friends. In only my second Test, when I had performed it at Edgbaston, in 1985, someone had written about it to dear old Brian Johnston. “I did my little “thing” and there was a titter in the crowd. I thought there must be a streaker on the field but it was Brian telling the world and the spectators were listening on their radios. I’ve been lumbered with it ever since”. Who about what?

2.Fillup the blanks (exhaustive list)

1. A Temporary Matter
2. When Mr. Pirzada Came to Dine
3. ____ ____ ____
4. A Real Durwan
5. Sexy
6. Mrs. Sen’s
7. This Blessed House
8. The Treatment of Bibi Haldar
9. The Third and Final Continent

3.The Hynek Classification System states that there can be 5 types of ‘contact’ between a human and an alien:
* When you see a UFO within about 150 yards
* When you see a UFO in the sky or on the ground and it leaves evidence behind
* When a person sees a UFO with visible occupants inside
* When the person is unwillingly taken and experimented on inside the alien craft
* When there is direct communication between aliens and humans
What are these laws better known to us?
