Tata Crucible 2010 – Hyderabad Round August 21, 2010

Posted by Gyaniz in Quiz Reviews.
Tags: , , ,

The Tata Crucible juggernaut rolled yesterday (i.e. 20.08.2010) from Hyderabad. My dear friend Muali Duggineni has been kind to send the review and questions of the Hyderabad round.

The Corporate Edition of the Tata Crucible 2010 teed of from Hyderabad this evening. Nearly 70 teams took part in the prelims. Despite the not-so-encouraging participation on a working day, all the usual suspects in the city were there. The prelims comprised 25 questions (20 dry, 5 visuals). This year, most of the questions in the prelims were classic in nature, though there were not many workoutable clues. While 5 teams made it to the regional finals based on their scores, the sixth team (Microsoft) was picked after a wild card round in which the teams that scored ranked between sixth and eleventh in the prelims were asked 6 questions on the buzzer.

Here go some of the questions from the prelims:

1. What was originated via the partnership of scientist Samuel Ruben and businessman Philip Rogers Mallory, who met during the 1920s. A famous brand connected with photography.
2. Li Ka-Shing, the Hong Kong based business tycoon, was referred to as which famous comic character?
3. United Artists was founded by D. W. Griffith, Mary Pickford, Douglas Fairbanks, and who else?
4. What version of Band-Aid was specially developed keeping the Indian market in mind?
5. Who is the ET Global Indian of the year 2010?
6. What is the name given to the system of financial incentives designed to keep an employee from leaving the company?
7. Who was the master of mind in England in 1717?
8. In the early 1900s, what did a New York socialite by the name Mary Phelps Jacobs develop?
9. What is the name given to a stock market crash where the loss is in excess of $ 1 billion?
10. What was established in 1972 by Air France “to provide a home away from home for its customers.”
11. Picture of Bindeswar Pathak
12. Pic of Capt Krishna Nair
13. Logo of Natwest Bank
14. An ad for Jockey


1. Duracell
2. Superman
3. Charlie Chaplin
4. Turmeric
5. Ram Charan
6. Golden Handcuffs
7. Newton
8. Bra
9. Flash Crash
10. Le Méridien

I think the highest score in the prelims was 19. The cut of was 13 or 14. .

The six teams that made it to the finals are:

· Google
· Infosys
· Mahindra Satyam
· Microsoft
· Vizag Steel (Santanu and Phani – the reigning champs of the TC Corp Edition)

There were 5 rounds in the finals. Three of these were on buzzer. Most of the teams put a brave front in the finals and fought it out. Google, Infy and Mahindra Satyam had a chance to win the quiz on the last question. However it was the Infosys team, represented by Reddy and Reddy, that emerged the victorious cracking some nice stuff. They could identify the Dare House – the Corp. HQ of Murugappa Group. Another nice connect cracked by Infy was on RBI where they showed the pics of Azim Premji, Kumara Birla, a logo, and a pic of someone). While Google(Lateesh and JK) came second, Mahindra Satyam (represented by Nirad and yours truly) finished third.

Well, this is all I can remember J
