Daily Question – 51

Apologies for the absence of activity on the blog yesterday. Some technical difficulties were to blame. This week will have only six questions!

Connect the man with the place.

The poet Matthew Arnold (Visual 1) coined the term ‘City Of Dreaming Spires’ to describe Oxford (Visual 2).

Cracked by 9 of you! In order – anil raghavan, Thejaswi Udupa, Venkatesh S (Venky), ganesh, philip, Srikanth, Rohan, ashwine, and Sumo.

No one got all six, and only one person got 5. Defending his title successfully, was Thejaswi Udupa! So, presenting the fifth QFI Chennai Super King – Thejaswi Udupa.
