The last question of the first weekly championship on the QFI Chennai blog. The results will be announced along with the answer to this question tomorrow.
Connect. Explain the alleged multi-lingual pun.
Gallium (Visual 3) was discovered by Lecoq de Boisbaudran (Visual 1) in 1875. He named the element “gallia” after his native land of Gaul, or France (Visual 2). It was later claimed that he had also named gallium after himself, as his name, “Le coq,” is the French for “the rooster,” and the Latin for “rooster” is “gallus”.
Cracked by 6 of you! In order – CR, zizzyphus, Thejaswi Udupa, Sankhya, Gaurav and BoFi. Well done!
And now for the results of the first weekly championship. No one answered all seven questions, so the next highest score was considered. Four people got six answers right – Thejaswi Udupa, Sankhya, BoFi and zizzyphus. Well done, all of you! Of these, the person submitting the right answer quickest the most number of times was… (drum roll) ZIZZYPHUS who managed to beat the others on three occasions. So presenting the first QFI Chennai Super King – zizzyphus!
