The IPs for the 2013 LitSoc Buzzer Quiz made promises of “fame, girls and LitSoc points” and more importantly, working buzzers (a reference to a goof-up during last year’s Saarang, during which the Buzzer quiz had to be conducted sans buzzers). After a mix-up regarding the venue, a considerably large number of 3-member teams assembled at CRC, keen to establish that they were quick on the trigger. LitSoc 2013-14 finally kicked off at 6 PM on Wednesday, September 25th in CRC.
Organised and conducted by Siddharth Srikanthan and Rushabh Menon, the quiz consisted of a preliminary round of 32 questions. The questions in this round were designed to test both the participants’ knowledge and their ability to reason their way to an answer. The top 8 teams from the preliminary round got through to the finals, which tested both the mental and digital dexterity of the participants. The audience was kept thoroughly entertained, especially when a team buzzed too quickly, without even having a proper answer in mind. The results were as follows:
Mayank NK Choudhary
Anand R Aiyer
