  1. 1. Q1. X’s motto is Karma Jyāyohy Akarmaņah,which means “Action is superior to inaction(Srimad Bhagvad Gita: Chapter 3, Verse 8)”.It formally came into existence on 3rd July 1939 and was initiated in the former office and bungalow of the Chief engineer(now it is the office of the Post Master General).The new building which houses X is shaped like a spanner when looked from above, which one would find fitting for it.

  3. 3. Q2. Progeria or HGPS is a rare genetic condition where symptoms resembling aging manifests at an early age. It was familiarized to Indians through the Bollywood movie Paa(2009) starring Amitabh Bachchan. Progeria is also fittingly called X disease after a 1922 short story by F . Scott Fitzgerald which was adapted for a movie of the same name in 2008. It is said that progeria inspired Fitzgerald to write the short story in question. Give me X(2 words).
  4. 4. The curious case of Benjamin Button & Benjamin Button disease
  5. 5. Q3.(2) Amazingly,X’s face is modelled as a mashup of American poet Carl Sandburg, Albert Einstein and a pug dog. The concept of X was based on an imaginary friend Y created after his parents’ divorce in 1960.X’s midnight flight was a smash hit among audiences, which made Y include an image of the same, in the logo for his production company Amblin Entertainment. Identify X and Y. Images follow.

  7. 7. Q4*(2). On July 4, 1939, a dying man stood before over 60,000 people and told them he was the “luckiest man on the face of the earth” for being able to play in ballparks for 17 years, and receive nothing but kindness and encouragement from his fans. X thus became a symbol of what sports, and maybe life is all about. His name came into the limelight worldwide due to a recent internet phenomenon. More than 2.4 million tagged videos were uploaded & circulated on Facebook. Mashable called the phenomenon "the Harlem Shake of the summer“. Identify the legend in question and the name of the internet phenomenon for a total of two points.

  9. 9. Q5. In the year 1232, Pope Gregory IX instilled in the people a fear of cats, saying that Lucifer, the devil, sometimes appeared as a cat, and was actually half-cat. Religious zealots in Europe sought to kill cats, then, seeing them as incarnations and associates of the Devil. cats were outlawed in many parts of Europe, and huge numbers of cats and dogs were killed. Even if the practice was not a major cause for the unfortunate events that followed, the lack of cats certainly contributed to the severity. What event, one that changed the course of humanity did this uneducated killing of cats lead to?(specific)

  13. 13. Y’s diary entry on 22 January 1892 reads as follows : “one evening I was walking along a path, the city was on one side and the fjord below. I felt tired and ill. I stopped and looked out over the fjord—the sun was setting, and the clouds turning blood red. I sensed a ________ passing through nature; it seemed to me that I heard the _________. I painted this picture, painted the clouds as actual blood. The color shrieked.” This became one of the most famous painting of our times. Arthur Lubow,a famous American Journalist, has described X as "an icon of modern art, a Mona Lisa for our time.” Identify this artwork created in 1893,which was originally titled Der Schrei der Natur . A patient resource group for trigeminal neuralgia (which has been described as the most painful medical condition in existence) have also adopted the image as a symbol of the condition. Identify X and its creator Y. Q7.
  14. 14. The Scream – Edvard Munch
  15. 15. The disease ________________owes its name to a carbonated drink, a beverage produced by Pepsi Co. Although many other sodas contain significant amounts of sugar, caffeine and phosphoric acid, X contains one of the highest levels of caffeine of any soft drink. To mask the bitterness of the caffeine, the formula for X also calls for higher amounts of sugar or high fructose corn syrup which is cheaply available in the United stated due to generous subsidies. The disease is most rampant among teenagers and young adults in the Appalachian region owing to the non existence of proper dental care and health education. Many children and adolescents in Appalachia routinely purchase large bottles of X and take frequent sips. The cumulative effect of this steady soda consumption is accelerated tooth decay. Identify the beverage in question or give me the name of the disease, rightly named after the same brand. Q8.
  16. 16. Mountain Dew- Mountain Dew Mouth
  17. 17. The X Index often abbreviated as MUI is an economic indicator used most notably by former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan to determine the end of economic slumps. Economists say that, as people have more money to spend on non-essential purchases, men (and women) purchase more X. While considered by most to be a necessity, X has a tendency to hang around past its shelf life during lean years. A surge in spending on purchasing X can give notice that a turnaround in the economy is imminent. This is because sales of X remain more or less stable when the economy is healthy but during a severe downturn, demand for these goods changes as new purchases are deferred.Simple..Identify the everyday commodity in question or expand MUI . Q9*.

  19. 19. Q10*. A __________ planet is a planet that falls within a star’s habitable zone and is often specifically used to refer to planets that are earth sized. The name stems from a children’s fairy tale which in its current interpretation is often used to emphasize the importance of conditions being “just right” for survival, in this case being in the habitable zone and able to sustain liquid water. A planet following this principle is neither too close nor too far from a star to rue out the presence of liquid water and hence life. The best example of such a planet is earth itself. The area around a star which can support such a planet is called the ___________ zone. Fill in the blanks with the name of the protagonist of the fairy tale. Image follows

The term first appeared in a 1964 article called Let's get down to ________es by American cartoonist Mort Walker, who is best known as the creator of the Beetle Bailey and Hi and Lois cartoons. Later, in a book called The Lexicon of Comicana, Walker created and named an international set of symbols used in comics around the world, which made this practice commonplace in comics . Walker called his system Symbolia.Just fill in the blank(s) to give me what such short sequences of symbols are called.

  32. 32. Q17. An X is a catchy piece of music that continually repeats through a person's mind after it is no longer playing. Phrases used to describe an X include musical imagery repetition, involuntary musical imagery, and stuck song syndrome. The word X is a calque from the German Ohrwurm. The earliest known usage is in Desmond Bagley's 1978 novel Flyaway. According to research by James Kellaris, 98% of individuals experience Xs. Women and men experience the phenomenon equally often, but Xs tend to last longer for women and irritate them more. An attack usually involves a small portion of a song, a hook, equal to or less than the capacity of one's auditory short-term memory. The reports that capacity as usually 15 to 30 seconds. Simple tunes are more likely to get stuck than complex pieces of music. Identify the term in question.

  36. 36. Q19. Originally, X was grey when he made his first appearance way back in 1963,and was actually meant to stay that way. But this gave rise to a lot a lot of problems the biggest of them being consistency in print. The printers at that time couldn’t provide a consistent gray color, so X would often change from gray to black to other shades of gray from page to page and panel to panel. In order to address the issue, Stan Lee choose to go with a color that would come off the printing press with fewer issues, a color that was easy to reproduce consistently.Interestingly,the grey version of X made a comeback in 1986 with the advance of better printing technologies even though X is more commonly identified as being ________ in color.
