Congratulations to them.
An all girls team taking away the quiz (with a good margin) and lots of new and eager participants: both were a very welcome sight.
This quiz was prepared totally by the people of the next batch who would be assuming control of things at Qbit soon. It was a job well done.
Special thanks to Vishesh Srivastava, Sourabh Bhagat and Sneha Laxmi Roy for the extra efforts and everyone else who was a part of it.
