There was a low turnout for the quiz so all 10 teams were merged into 5 teams for the finals. Probably due to a late start and paucity of time and also the small number of teams, the QM chose to have only 17 questions for the prelims. This left scope for a lot more consumption of questions per-head in the finals.
Personally, I liked the quiz - there were a good mix of topics with no biases to any one, no memorable peters or obvious sitters. Team E led from the start with Team D close behind. Perhaps the delays in getting the venue stretched the duration leading to members from Team D leaving in between. But young Omkar held the fort and maintained their position. A fun time was had by all.
