    Alphabetical Quick Quiz: The Sound of Music

    Are you musically inclined? No matter! Do try out this Alphabetical Quiz on the theme of music. It is a little tougher than the previous one!!

    Instructions: The quiz is in the attachment of this announcement thread. Send me a list of the answers to my Gmail ID which is 'iscmecontests'. Do not submit answers in this thread. Put in the subject line of the email 'Music Quiz'.

    Only one entry per member is allowed. A second email with another list of answers will not be considered. Do not send your answers as an attachment. Send the answers in the text itself. You can send the list as it is, with the answers next to it or even just the answers, but please send it in the correct order. After you send me the answers, put a response in this thread so that later points & cc can be credited for correct answers. No points or cc will be deducted for incorrect answers.

    Important: In your response to this thread, do not indicate which answers were easy or which were difficult. Your answers should match my answer key. There will be no disputes on this and the decision on the winners will be final & binding on all.

    Cash Awards: The member who gets the maximum correct answers will be awarded Rs.150/-. In case of a tie, the first two members who got the maximum answers correct will each win this cash prize. Next in line will get Rs.100/-, Rs.75/- and Rs.50/-. Note that at least a minimum of 8 answers and upwards should be correct for the cash prizes. If nobody gets at least 8 right, then the amount of all the cash awards will be reduced, but cash prizes will definitely be given.

    All participants (including winners) will get 2 points and Rs.2/- for each correct answer. In case of a pair of words being the answer, if you get one word right you will get 1 point and 1cc. In case there has been an error in the number of letters given for a word, then a default point of 2 will be given to all but only if the word you gave is somewhat similar to the answer & not wholly incorrect (that is, the spelling is slightly different.). Do not give more than one answer, otherwise, it will be considered as invalid.

    The closing time of receipt of entries: 8 p.m., 13th May 2018 (IST). Entries in my email inbox received after this time will be invalid.

    Hope you have a fun, musical weekend!

    [Note: I will not be able to acknowledge the receipt of your entries till late evening/night tomorrow.]

    I read just now on the Net about the dust storms affecting North India, especially Delhi & Noida. Hope everyone at ISC & their families are safe.

    I am extending the time to 11 p.m. for other members to try out the quiz, since their electric power may have been affected. However, to be fair to the participants who hurried to submit within the scheduled time, the entries received after 8p.m will not be considered for the main awards. Those entries will get only 1 point and 1 cc for each correct answer for all answers, including those with bonus points. So those who wish to still try, may submit their entries via email & respond here, indicating they have done so. I will come online tomorrow morning.
