  2. 2. Q1 X was a world-renowned scientist whose pioneering theories and discoveries paved the way for scientific breakthroughs and numerous everyday items, such as paper towels. Despite X's clear will against this, one of his 'most prized possessions' (Y) was stolen after his demise, apparently in the interest of science. The perpetrator, having gotten the family's approval now, travelled across the world with Y, which subsequently got featured in some of the most prominent journals. Although this feat cost the perpetrator his career and marriage, it kicked off several studies that shed light on X's distinguished intellect. Identify X and Y

  4. 4. Q2 X, a P&G product, is the No.1 ____ selling brand in China. The brand, however, started out as a complete failure in the Chinese markets. A disposable commodity in the West — the product wasn't part of the cultural norm, and hence, even the cheap prices failed to capture consumers' attention. In order to make their pitch compelling enough, P&G convinced the consumers to try out X. Two studies, with a sample space close to a thousand, were conducted over a period of a year in eight Chinese cities. The studies claimed X helped with 30% faster sleep, which was further linked with improved cognitive development in the formative years. A 660-square-meter photomontage, which included pictures of X being used while sleeping, was also created at a retail store in Shanghai. Identify X and FITB.

  10. 10. Q5 Featured in the 1989 Sci-fi Comedy movie Back to the Future II, the company, X, brought these famous shoes from the movie to real life with their limited-edition replica in 2011. While only 1,510 pairs were manufactured at that time, these shoes made a comeback in 2016 with another 89 pairs on popular demand, with prices ranging between $2300-$1000. A prodigy in the world of footwear, these special shoes are the first-ever rechargeable pair of shoes manufactured by X. These shows feature light-up panels and are also capable of doing an everyday task on their own, thanks to sensors in the sole of the shoes. These shoes are not meant for heavy activity and should not be worn for recreational purposes. They were produced mostly for display. Identify X and the task.

  12. 12. Q6 X is a voice activated desktop robot which, unlike other virtual companions, responds to commands through _______. The second-highest voted DIY project on Reddit, this robot can help with reminders, weather checks, smart device controls and everything the regular voice assistants do—just with an added advantage of interesting responses, which are replete with touching and moving emotions. X is synonymous with 'casting a brief look', and is also the homophone for half the title of a Netflix period crime drama, just if you replace 'y' with an 'o'. The drama features a Birmingham-based notorious gang. Identify X and FITB.

  16. 16. Q8 X, a sponsor of Ferrari, spent a whopping $1 billion sponsoring Formula One racing. However, the EU put a ban on advertising the product X sells the very same year. In too deep with a $1 billion investment, X decided to exploit a legal loophole by replacing their now-forbidden logo with a barcode. Not only does the barcode graphically resembles what X sells, but also bears a striking resemblance to the actual logo, especially with cars rushing by at say, 200 mph. Identify X and the name for this method of advertising.

  18. 18. Q9 An American artist, Diemut Strebe, has teamed up with scientists to produce what may be one of the craziest pieces of art we have ever seen. Strebe has 3D printed the X of late artist Y. And to everyone's surprise, it was not printed out of plastic, like most of the other 3D prints. However, this X was actually printed using real living human cells from the famous artist's great-grandson, who shares 1/16th of the DNA with 19th century icon. The original plan was to use actual DNA, taken from an envelope that he had licked, but the DNA turned out not to be his. Using a sophisticated 3D bioprinter, and computer software, Strebe was able to actually print the cells in a shape that resembles with the actual X. Once the cells were printed, the X was grown at Boston’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Id X and Y

  20. 20. Q10 On May 18th 2003, voters in Belgium went to vote in their elections which are done through computer where you insert a magnetic card and the vote is saved both in computer and the card. When the counting was done, a candidate recieved more votes than possible. A recount found that she received 4096 more votes. Computer experts were called to decode the reason but everything was found to be working perfectly fine. It was later found that this happened bcz of cosmic rays. The computer counts with transistor which give output in bits (0 or1). When a cosmic/ radioactive particle hits a transistor, it changes the output and as each transistor resembled a power of 2, when the particle hit the 13th transistor (2^12), it changes its bit output from 0 to 1 which means that it adds 4096 to the total. This phenomenon started happening in late 1970s. What is this error called and why it didn't used to happen before 1970s.
  21. 21. A10 Bit flip It was in 1970s when chip components have become small enough to be affected by single cosmic/ radioactive particle.
  22. 22. Q11 _(4)_ was first introduced in 1912 and was developed by a company which is now known as Nabisco. It is a 1 to 2 bite food item and is extremely popular amongst kids especially in USA it's origin country where it is the ideal item in its category. The origin of the name is unknown, although a theory proposed is that the name derives from the scientific name of a flower from Laurel family as the original design over it resembles a flower like pattern and many other products introduced by Nabisco had similar references. It launched in India around the time of its 100th anniversary and it entered in an extremely competitive market with 2 clear market leaders amongs which 1 is enjoyably eaten by both humans and dogs. To attract kids it created an eating ritual including a drink in the process. It can be eaten as it is, dipped in that drink or complete crushed and mixed in that drink to create various tasty drinks kind of things.

  24. 24. Q12 Using these in the wars against British army in 1780s and 1790s made Tipu Sultan's army the first army in the world to use things like these in a battle. There came a time when British army was so scared of these that they use to refuse to enter the battlefield as they won't let them even come close to the Mysorean army. Sultan's army used 1000s of these at once leading to a large chunck of British soldiers dead. Britishers adopted them to use in the 1812 war against Americans. Witnessing this war was when Francis Scott Key wrote The Star-Spangled Banner which also has a mention of this fascinating technology for that time that he saw being used in the war by the British. This invention got Tipu Sultan a portrait in one of the biggest scientific organization in the world whose research is related to the same field. What is this piece of technology/ weapon/ tool.

  28. 28. Q14 _(3)_ is now a packaged food related business which was started as a restaurant by Yagnanarayana Maiya in banglore in 1924. From the beginning of their business, high quality and proper hygiene is their highest priority i.e. in many places the entrance to their restaurant is though their kitchen. During the time of emergency in 1975 a Food Control Act was introduced which mandated that food was to be sold at very low prices. This move made it difficult for them to maintain high standards in its restaurant business and forced them to diversify into the instant food business, selling ready-to-eat snacks and masala packages. Gradually with more development in the manufacturing, they started offering easy to make meals also like sweets and south Indian breakfasts. They have a very strong hold over the south indian market. Initially they used to sell their products through independent or private retail stores but are now expanding their restaurant chain to have an in house retail.

  30. 30. Q15 As explained in the earlier question, a computer performs it's functions using transistors. As the technology is advancing, computer parts are getting smaller and smaller. Currently we can develope transistors that are of microscopic scale. But here comes the problem. For a transistor to work, it should be able to allow the flow of current when it wants to give an output of 1 and stop the flow of current when it wants to give an output of 0. But when it's size decreases any further, electrons just doesn't stop even if the transistor is closed. They travel through the blockade of the transistor thus always giving an output of 1. This phenomenon is called __(7)__ ___(9)___. With decreasing size of computer parts, we will reach their physical limit very soon and it is forcing us to use quantum mechanics to solve this problems.
