All,

How come you saw that link? I dont remember seeing it when the results came out. Anyways, each of our team guys ended up with almost 30 correct answers. Since we qualified, maybe it would help you if you got an idea of what the cut off would be like. Some other questions:

1) Name this Croatian born physicist who settled in USA after whom the unit of magnetic field intensity is named?

2) Name the metal in the group 8 of the periodic table with allotropes as alpha and beta and delta, which is used widely in several applications.

3) This particular word derived from Hindi comes to represent a job which is relatively tension free and laidback timings. What is the word?

Some others, but cannot really remember...oh btw, shri, would really appreciate a few pointers for UC, coz none of us from my college have even SEEN a previous episode of UC, let alone take part. Most of our quiz experience comes from Saarang

Oh btw, is there any guy here with his date on 18th of July? Contact me if you do...

1. Arsenal
3. Nafisa Ali?
5. First space walk
6. Alfred Hitchcock?

BTW, for the 8th q. isn't 'largest used' a very relative term? Not a good quiz question, IMHO.
