The fourth zonal final of the season in what has been dubbed by quizzers as the ‘zone of death’ was a thriller, living up to the sobriquet attributed to the zone. All the eight teams looked on even terms as the quiz moved at a very brisk pace.

Champions, NIT Jamshedpur - Palak Kumar and Sudeep Saurabh
The duo from NIT Jamshedpur looked evidently better prepared than the others, as the quiz progressed, given their reaction time and speed at which they answered. The other teams re-grouped and fought a battle for the second place, some choosing aggression and others caution.
The duo from NIT Silchar which had won at Shillong, a new location introduced by the Tata’s this year, played well to get to the runner-up title. The NIT Rourkela, IIT Kanpur and ICAI teams fought brilliantly but could not get ahead of these teams.
The guest of honour, Mr. Vinaya Verma, CEO mjunction, appreciated the format that helped teams “work things out” and underlined the importance of knowing how to work things out in life as well.
