Answers to Quiz # 16

Here are the answers to the quiz # 16 of Punchliners.
Answers :: Punchliners :: Quiz # 16

1. Audi

2. Bacardi

3. Mind Tree Consulting

4. Saint Gobain

5. Monsanto

6. Target

7. Satyam

8. Total Petroleum

9. World Space


1. Only Ruchir Sharma could get all the logos right. Kudos to you Ruchir.

2. People identified 5 out of the 7 logos very easily but the logo of Total and Monsanto were answered by only a few people.

3. The logo of MindTree Consulting has a little history behind it. For their identiy, Mindtree Consulting partnered with the spastics society of karnataka. 10 students were selected out of the college by Mind tree for desiging the visual identity of the company which should represent three elements of Imagination, Action and Joy. All the 10 students came out with their artwork and all were accepted but then the work of Chetan K S, a student of Motor and speech disability was adopted. Chetan's masterful work - the blue, red and bright yellow MindTree was presented to the world on August 18, 1999. The decisive skyward, blue brush stroke is Chetan's way of communicating imagination. The red stands for action. Finally, the bright yellow bubbles represent joy.

4. Monsanto's tagline is "Imagine" where there is a emphasis on "ag"

5. The Audi emblem with its four rings identifies one of Germany's oldest-established automobile manufacturers. It symbolises the amalgamation in 1932 of four previously independent motor-vehicle manufacturers: Audi, DKW, Horch and Wanderer. These companies form the roots of what is today AUDI AG.
Congratulations to Ruchir Sharma for scoring 100 % in the quiz and securing top position.
