Academics Quadrathlon Contest – Event 4: Sporting TimesAcademics alone are not part of our education and no fun either if there aren't any interesting co-curricular activities. One of these is sports and games. So it is only appropriate to focus on these as we hit the finishing line's tape in our Quadrathlon contest.
What you have to do: In the attached Word doc. is a very simple Sports Quiz (attachment is just below the text). The number of letters in each answer has been provided. In case the sport/game is of two words, and it is written, for example (4,3), then you need to get both correct to get the point for it. All you have to do is send me a list of the answers via email to my Gmail Id which is iscmecontests. Do not submit the answers in this thread. Once you have sent the answers, then put in an intimation in a response to this thread, so that I can check whether I have received it or not.
The Tri-reward system: (i) There are totally 23 answers to be given and two bonus points for two of the answers, so you can get a total of 25 points, with one point for each correct answer. (ii) You will also get one cc for each correct answer. (iii) The first two participants who get all correct will be eligible for a prize of Rs.25 and 25 points. In case nobody gets it right, then there will be a prize of Rs.20 and 20 points to the first two highest-scoring participants, provided at least 12 are correct. In case even this does not happen, then the top prize (25/25) will still be given to the earliest highest-scoring participant (only one).
Note: The answers should match the answer key. If at all there is a dispute, the decision of the jury panel will be final.
Closing date and time: 25th May 2020 (Monday), 6 a.m. Note that the time in your email will determine if your entry is valid or not. This thread, though, will remain open till 12 noon of 25th May so that in case you woke up at the crack of dawn to send off your entry but forgot to put in a response to this thread, you can still do so later!
