Hi friends

We have TWO QUESTIONS today to make up for today’s missed question. Answers will be accepted till 11.59 pm, December 7th, 2010 🙂 All the best !!!

Q4: (By Karthik Narayan) There is a list of fifteen books mentioned below. Who is their famous Indian author and what are they collectively known as?

Book I, “Concerning Discipline”; Book II,”The Duties of Government Superintendents”; Book III, “Concerning Law”; Book IV, “The Removal of Thorns”; Book V, “The Conduct of Courtiers”; Book VI, “The Source of Sovereign States”; Book VII, “The End of the Six-Fold Policy”; Book VIII, “Concerning Vices and Calamities”; Book IX, “The Work of an Invader”; Book X, “Relating to War”; Book XI, “The Conduct of Corporations”; Book XII, “Concerning a Powerful Enemy”; Book XIII, “Strategic Means to Capture a Fortress”; Book XIV, “Secret Means”; Book XV, “The Plan of a Treatise”

Q5: Connect the following “document”s 🙂


A4: Chanakya’s/Kautilya’s “Arthashastra”
A5: On the left is the document issued by the Republic of China, for mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau residents holding PRC nationality for entry to Taiwan. And on the right is the specific travel document issued by People’s Republic of China (PRC) to citizens of the Republic of China (Taiwan) for entry into mainland China.
The first complete correct answer as well as individual correct answer(s) was given by BratX. Congrats !!! Shrey and Jango (via FB) also gave right answers to both the questions. Soumya, Shailesh Soni (via Twitter), Sylvian, Syed Zakiuddin, Ajaal/Gujaal and Sekar were right on the first one, although Sekar and Ajaal/Gujaal came very close on the 2nd one (half points for that) and Sylvian got close to the funda!!
