  22. 22. Q1. ID X & Y In January 2020, this Fortune 500 company (X) announced that it will put sustainability at the core of its venture choices. In their annual letter, the CEO said that awareness is dynamic, and he thinks that the world is on the edge of a major reshaping of finance. Going with their vision, X decided that before the end of this year, it would start divesting their resources from any company which generates more than a quarter of its revenue from Y. This move was welcomed by everyone, albeit some outlets believed that it would not make much of a difference in the long run. Few even thought this announcement was just greenwashing, since X has a long history of voting against climate action, and joked how this move is ironic, given that the name X essentially describes Y.

  25. 25. Q2. What’s special about these flights? Flights going from Hong Kong to New York usually cost more than $2500, that too if you've booked your tickets well enough in advance. In May, Kayak, a popular travel website put up tickets lower than $200 from a particular airline for the same route. Naturally, this came as a surprise to everyone. However upon further investigation, users found out something interesting about these flights which, along with the fact that the travel time for these flights are about 7 hrs more than the regular ones, justified the discount.

  50. 50. Written Round 2 +10/-0 5 Questions about heists and robberies
  51. 51. Q1. Harry Winston is a jewellery and luxury store; a subsidiary of the Swatch Company. In 2009, a criminal gang comprising of 4 men, known as the __ ____ stormed the Paris store and escaped with jewellery worth 85 million pounds. When investigations began, identification became impossible, because the robbers had employed the safest tactic they could think of - they were disguised as ___. What was this gang known as, fitting, given they were stealing diamonds? What was their disguise?
  52. 52. Q2. What law was this, which today seems unimaginable, especially in and around the United States? In 1969, Sherry Holper and Benny Taylor hatched a rather elaborate plan to plunder the Royal Bank of Canada’s Freeport outlet. Among other intricacies, the basic reason for selecting Freeport as a target was a legal reason, which aided their plans for entry and taking over of the bank significantly.
  53. 53. Q3. What business did they supposedly start, or what activity did their business involve? The Banco Central in Fortaleza, in 2005, was looted using a basic technique, reproduced several times in movies and TV shows. For this purpose, the robbers - a crew of 25 men - started a small business near the bank. Everyday, their equipment would come in, and while they pretended they were working, they were essentially executing their plans.
  54. 54. Q4. FITB, or what is this trilogy? Ronnie Leibowitz is a convicted Israeli thief, who was given the moniker “ofnobank”, a combination of the words meaning __ and bank. It was alleged that he used a __ while entering and exiting his targets and placed his __ inside of a truck while needing to disappear quickly. But Leibowitz refutes this claim and says he only used another apparatus, closely linked with a __, to hide his identity and that is how the name stuck. Not officially recognized, but it’s possible that a certain trilogy was inspired by his acts in part, if not in totality.
  55. 55. Q5. Who was the thief, or what does Gaza mean? Who was X’s friend? X is an Italian Opera singer and celebrity. In 1962, she visited her friends who resided in Braine- l'Alleud, where one of her necklaces was stolen. It remained a mystery for the longest time, until her friend happened to pick up a piece of music by Rossini titled “La Gaza Ladra”, and figured out who the actual thief was.
