The Quiz Club at BITS Pilani, Goa campus was started to get together like minded individuals
with a passion for trivia and quizzing in general.
We plan on putting up several questions and details about quizzes taking place.
As our tagline puts it, when you aren't able to crack an answer,then do what any self respecting quizzer would do and say 'Aiyo! I almost
knew this one!'

Another One to pamper the neglected child
This one is from Annie Sen Gupta (SEQC Goa).
Q: What's wrong with this picture? For additional kicks, who is the person on the extreme right?
From the horse's mouth :
Answer: When Li Na won the French Open women's singles earlier this year, there was a goof-up during the awards presentation. The wrong trophy (a small replica of the winners trophy, which the winner gets to keep) was awarded to the losing finalist Francesca Schiavone. The second picture shows her with the correct trophy.
The woman at extreme right is the Australian Evonne Goolagong Cawley, who became the first non-white person (she is of Aboriginal descent) to win a Grand Slam singles title, when she won at Roland Garros 40 years ago. That was one of 14 Grand Slam titles that she won in the 1970s.
