NSMQ Gwalior | Review and Questions

Ajay Poonia shares the review and questions from NSMQ Gwalior. You can also get some questions from here
The Gwalior leg of the 8th NSMQ was held in the scenic campus of ITM biz school. Situated about 10km from the main city ITM played host to 40 teams from Gwalior, Ujjain, Indore and even Jaipur. The latter trying to play it smart on its bid to outsmart the rest of the teams by opting for Gwalior as its NSMQ destination. With only 1 point separating the team that came 2nd and the team that stood 7th in the prelims, our task to eliminate 1 team turned out to be extremely difficult. The finals had a decent mix of business, management, sports and current affairs. By the end of the first round it was clear that the fight for the Gwalior NSMQ champion will be between the boys from Jaipur and the boys from the venue host. At the end of the first round Jaipur-35, ITM- 40. This got the LNMIIT students from Jaipur a little impatient as they went for a few negatives in the second round. The pressure got to the ITM boys as well as they focussed more on trying their best to crack each and every question hurled at them instead of strategizing well and challenging others to answer the questions. The more experienced team from LNMIIT, Jaipur held on to their nerve till the end as their bid to outsmart the less experienced teams from MP proved successful when ITM couldn’t identify the athletes mentioned at the end of Paan Singh Tomar while they could identify Shibulal and Kris Gopalkrishnan as the Infosys founders.
Final Scores- LNMIIT- 55, ITM- 44, ITM team 2 with 12
Some questions from the quiz-
1. Known as the Well of Death, this stunt has its origins in the USA. In the stunt, a car or motorcycle is driven on a vertical wall, perpendicular to the ground, defying gravity.The stuntmen are able to perform this stunt as centrifugal forces keep the vehicle adhered to the sides of the well.
How do we know this stunt in hindi?
2. Facing an acute manpower shortage, the Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation has joined hands with which government agency to collect data from retail outlets to calculate the rural CPI (Consumer Price Index)?
3. Dewang Mehta, the former NASSCOM chief added what two words to the iconic slogan, “Roti, Kapda, Makan, ____ and _____” focussing on the needs of the emerging 21st century Indian?
4. The Winning Way by Harsha Bhogle & Anita Bhogle marries two fields that share the same set of core attributes — Management and Sports. Fittingly the foreword has been written by X and the epilogue by Y. X and Y?
5. Weighing only 275 grams, Milagrow has launched TabTop, a tablet PC it claims to be the first tablet PC for ________.
TabTop can fit in most handbags and comes preloaded with over 50 applications and is available in four colours-
pink, sky blue, silver and black.

It was a very closely-fought quiz with three teams having a chance to win championship. We(Anand Babu and Vignesh from BIM) came out on top in the end. NITians were the runners-up.  For a fledgling quizzing city like Trichy to have close to 200 teams was an achievement in itself. Pickbrain was quite pleased with it as well.  All the best!!!

Definitely clear that a lot of content is from the past Pickbrain/ Crucible archives and we strongly believe that you will do well if you dig into the previous years’ Crucible quizzes and some Current Affairs!!

Tata Crucible 2012

The biggest Business Quiz for Students is back! 24 cities – 24 champions – 1 National Champion.

Not only is the Tata Crucible a chance to be crowned the Best Business Quizzers in the country but also a fantastic platform to monetize your year long preparations. The Tata Crucible Campus Edition , now in its 8th year, will be hosted by quizmaster Giri Pickbrain Balasubramaniam and will be spread over 50 days!

Rules for the year remain almost the same as the previous years with clearer indications for teams from colleges where there are no centres (participate in the closest centre by geographical distance and all teams from the same college must participate at one centre)

But as usual what surprises us is no action being taken on Professional courses like ICAI and ICWA. Its just unfair to the students of ICAI that they have to hear the brickbats of a 1000 students!!

Tata Crucible Questions 2012- Jamshedpur Campus


Krishan Kumar from Jamshedpur reviews the Jamshedpur Tata Crucible Campus 2012

The 2012 Campus Edition of the Tata Crucible Quiz kicked off in Jamshedpur with around 90 teams participating in the prelims. The top 4 teams were selected directly from the prelims while the 5th and 6th team were selected from the Wild Card entry. XLRI had a monopolistic rule here as all 6 teams were from the same college and only two teams could go through to the Regional final.

The Wild Card questions were basically content asked in the previous editions’ Tata Crucible Questions

After the prelims and wild card questions, the Top six teams on stage were:

1 Chinmay  and  Sanchit  from  XLRI

2 Partha  and  Abhishek  from  NIT  ROURKELA

3 Debjit Roy and Pranshu from BIT MESRA

4 Ankit  and Deepanjan from  XLRI

5 Sumit  and  Deepak  from NIT JAMSHEDPUR

6 Mrityunjay  and Ulaganath from XLRI

In the end, Ankit & Deepanjan from XLRI won the Jamshedpur Edition of the Tata Crucible Campus 2012 with a huge margin while a question on Dimple Kapadia decided the tiebreaker between XLRI team 2 and BIT Mesra which was won by Mrityunjan & Ulag from XLRI..
