MQuiz Review and Questions

MQuiz- The Telecom quiz conducted by MoMo Bangalore in association with Nokia Forum was a Saturday afternoon well spent. The quiz conducted by Team Nexus (Venky and Kivi) was very good on content and extremely well done. With over 35 teams participating, the quiz garnered a good response from both the Corporates and the Students. After a common prelim, the quiz had two separate tracks for both the students and the corporates. 

The Students quiz was a close three way battle till the last question between BMSCE, UVCE and BITS(Pilani) but the composed BMS team won the contest by five points.

The Corporate Track was a completely different affair, being dominated by Mitesh and Udupa from the very first question and winning the quiz handsomely with over a 70 point margin.
