Quiz buffs ahoy!

I finally got my quiz questions together. It would be quite tiresome to read 60-odd quiz questions together. So, I will spread them out like knowledge-butter in between regular posts. When I conducted the quiz, they were arranged in a very logical way (No two same subject questions should be back to back) but by the time the quiz got over, it was a real mixed bunch. My brother and I framed almost all the questions barring some which a friend Monty did. Monty’s questions will be suitably credited. In no fixed order, here’s the first intallment of 10 of them. The answers are below the questions. But since people want to try their hand at the questions, I have left the answers invisible. Select the portion using your cursor, and the answers will be seen. (Since I thought this was at the Durga Puja pandal, it would be appropriate to start with the goddess-related question.)

  1. Which form of Durga is represented with a bowl of rice in one hand and ladle on the other?
  2. In which country did pasta originate?
  3. Which round-collared attire designed by Pierre Cardin was named after an Indian?
  4. Of what are arch, loop, whorl, and composite the four basic kinds?
  5. Which musical term means “empty orchestra”?
  6. In which town did the Kents raise Superboy?
  7. This is a first line from which children’s classic which was also made into a Disney film: “All children, except one, grow up”?
  8. Which Italian dish containing noodles, meat and sauce comes from the Latin word meaning “cooking pot”? Clue: Garfield likes it very much.
  9. What term often used in Indian Classical music comes from the Sanskrit word meaning “color” or “passion”?
  10. Which group of Australian origin shot to fame with the songs they sang for the movie “Saturday Night Fever”?

Answers:

  1. Annapurna
  2. China
  3. The Nehru jacket
  4. Fingerprints
  5. Karaoke
  6. Smallville
  7. Peter Pan
  8. Lasagna
  9. Raga
  10. The Bee Gees
