[1] The First Course

Thus begins the first Quiz on this site:

  • Q1: This 16th Century gentleman coined the term Zenzizenzizenzic to denote the eighth power of a number. That is, the Zenzizenzizenzic of three is 6561. In the picture shown below, is a page from a document of his.

    What is the significance of this page?


  • Q2: Now for a really arbit question. A visual Connect:
    What gives? [Plagiarised from here ]

  • Q3: X is widely believed to have said "I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve." However, this quote is most probably just a legend, and the first place it was mentioned was in the film Y. What are X and Y and what is the quote about?

  • Q4: An interesting albeit arbit visual connect:







I guess that's it for now, a bonus question: What's the funda behind the title of this blog?

Happy Quizzing,
