ALACRITY : The Quizzers' Meet

By: Team PenTastic
[ Covered By Nimisha Acharya ]

Annnddd... Cetadel is back with a bang!!!

The coolest club of CET, "CETadel" is back with its first event of the season-Alacrity, the one event that spurs so many feelings of nostalgia in those who have been a part of it. It was organized by CETQuizzite, the quizzing wing of Cetadel. It is the entertainment quiz comprising of varied topics ranging from Bollywood to Hollywood and TV series to comics. The word which means cheerful readiness truly signifies the popularity and coolness quotient of the quiz. It was a huge hit with more than 40 teams and around 130 participants from all the four years. For 30 minutes, two rooms were filled with murmurs from discussion among the participants.

The questions were quite mind boggling. One had to put her thinking caps on while answering the questions. They seemed simple but the answers were unexpected. It was a mixture of the easy and the tough. Some of the questions included:

Mr.Srimant Tripathy Sir
