Details of Rounds
Round I – It is the qualifying round. There is no right or wrong answer in this round. We just want to capture what you perceive about our rivers. Only when you have attempted all 10 answers, you can attempt Round II. In this round, I want you to give your honest opinions and not get influenced by opinions of your friends, parents, teachers, etc.

Round II – You can move to the next round only when you have attempted all 10 questions correctly. The good news is that you can attempt it as many number of times as you want. Once you submit an unanswered question or an answer, I will tell you the correct answer and will also tell some interesting facts related to the question. It is a wonderful round where you will enhance your knowledge and expand your thoughts.

Round III – It is the last online round to select the candidates for the final live quiz. Before you start attempting this round, please make sure you are sitting at a comfortable and quiet place with a computer or laptop connected to a charger. If you are using a computer, please make sure that you are protected from power-cuts. In case you are using a laptop, make sure it is charged. You only get to attempt it once, and accuracy along with time taken to answer decides the winner.

To start with, you need to select one of the following four themes:

Historical and Cultural & Socio-economic Significance of Ganga
Physical geography & Famous places and personalities
Current Affairs & Governance
Flora and Fauna & Pollution/water treatment technology
Questions will be asked only from the theme chosen. Any attempt to use Google or other search engines to answer the question will increase the time taken and hence would reduce your chances to be a winner. At the end of the quiz, your performance will be displayed on the screen along with the average time taken by other participants.
