Question 479


Comparatively recent coinage, a Latinate derivative of the vocabulary word denoting the mineral jet. The word X is derived from Old French jaiet, from Latin (lapis) gagates ‘stone from Gagai’. The latter was a city in Lycia, Asia Minor.

Y derives from the German word for tradewind — and the period in its history when Z named their products after prominent winds

U,V,W,X,Y are elements of Z

Question 478: Connect and put fundae!

Answers: They all do ads for biscuits is true but specifically Parle Brands ambassadors was what i was looking for.


Question 477

Who are the other two guys missing in this list? Give funda.

Ans: As rohit pointed out correctly MRF ambasaddors.


Question 476

These products have undergone high-performance evaluations with the England and Wales Cricket Board at Loughborough University’s ECB Performance Training Centre and former England cricket captain Kevin Pietersen is already using the bats and equipment as also some others from different countries including a particular 'X' from India.
The bats, which go on sale in time for Christmas, fall into three different families designed to suit an individual’s playing style: ‘Libro’(blue) is Latin for ‘to swing or brandish with poise’, and is for the player that likes to play on the back foot or on the rise, ‘Pellara’(yellow) means ‘to strike or drive’ and is for the player that likes to get forward and ‘Incurza’(red) means ‘to attack with strength’ in Latin, and is for the more aggressive forceful player. Each of the three styles is identified by a different bat shape and colour way along with a unique logo. What is all this about? X?

Ans: Addidas bats. X: Tendulkar


Question 475

X is an infra-red imaging system that requires two infrared cameras on opposite sides of the ground above the field of action that are continuously recording an image. These cameras sense and measure heat from friction generated by a collision, and on occurrence of an event the infrared camera sends an image through to a computer which then turns it into negative image using a subtraction technique giving a series of black-and-white negative frames precisely localising the point of contact showing us the outcome of the recent incident. The image shows us any heat been produced in the field of action, giving us a 100% accurate conclusion on the decision. The main aim of this technology is to successfully make a decision on whether an object hit something at all. X uses technology developed in the military for tank and jet fighter tracking. The technology was adapted for television by BBG Sports. What am i talking about and what is it's significance?

Question 474

Cardinal Karol Wojtyla, a Polish national, broke a long-standing legacy of 455 years in 1978by achieving a remarkable feat. He, better known as X, died in 2005, after surviving many dreadful attempts on his life in the previous years. A german, Joseph Ratzinger, better known as Y, got a chance after X's death thus again crushing all hopes that the old broken 455 year old legacy would start again. X? Y? and What I am talking about?


Question 473

Whose words:
"Struggle is the father of all things. It is not by the principles of humanity that man lives or is able to preserve himself above the animal world, but solely by means of the most brutal struggle."

X can also be used in a monopropellant rocket. In the presence of a heated catalyst, X will decompose exothermically into nitrogen and oxygen, at a temperature of approximately 1300 °C. Because of the large heat release the catalytic action rapidly becomes secondary as thermal autodecomposition becomes dominant. In a vacuum thruster, this can provide a monopropellant specific impulse (Isp) of as much as 180s. While noticeably less than the Isp available from hydrazine thrusters (monopropellant or bipropellant), the decreased toxicity makes X an option worth investigating. Because of its release of very high temperature oxygen as a monopropellant the addition of even small amounts of a fuel such as hydrogen rapidly increases the specific impulse and the high oxygen temperatures simplify ignition of the fuel. Isp greater than 340 seconds can be readily achieved[citation needed]. Its low freezing point also eases thermal management as compared to hydrazine—a valuable property on a spacecraft which may contain quantities of cryogenic propellant.

X is stored as a compressed liquid; the evaporation and expansion of liquid X in the intake manifold causes a large drop in intake charge temperature, resulting in a denser charge, further allowing more air/fuel mixture to enter the cylinder.X is sometimes injected into (or prior to) the intake manifold, whereas other systems directly inject right before the cylinder (direct port injection) to increase power.

One of the major problems of using X in a reciprocating engine is that it can produce enough power to damage or destroy the engine. Very large power increases are possible, and if the mechanical structure of the engine is not properly reinforced, the engine may be severely damaged or destroyed during this kind of operation. It is very important with X augmentation of internal combustion engines to maintain proper operating temperatures and fuel levels to prevent "preignition", or "detonation" (sometimes referred to as "knocking" or "pinging"). Most problems that are associated with X do not come from mechanical failure due to the power increases. Since X allows a much denser charge into the cylinder it dramatically increases cylinder pressures. The increased pressure results in heat, and heat will cause many problems from melting the piston, valves or warping the head/cracking or predetonation.

Question 464

What is this set of logos about? The blanked out part is almost same everywhere! An easy one, right?


Question 463

These are the pictures of an ancient monument situated in the town of Mandor near Jodhpur in Rajasthan popularly known as "X jee ki chanwari". Following a popular legend and personal beliefs the people here celebrate the day of Dussehra differently quite unlike what is done in most parts of India. Tell me what am i talking about or guess X!


Question 462

What's common to these pics.? The first one is the logo (tagline?) of the said service, the second is the institution which provides it and the third one is the book cover of a fictional book written on the theme of the service. I hope guys like Mihir don't say that there is moon (is it?) in the 1 & 3 pic.!!
