Excitement rent the air as the quizmaster read out the answers to the prelims and the Mumbai final began with Pickbrain acknowledging the performance of a few teams that narrowly missed the final. As the rounds unfolded, the team from Dhirubhai Ambani Int.School took an early lead while all the other teams were moving in a cluster with nearly equal scores.

In the third and fourth rounds of the quiz Dhirubhai Ambani Int.School surged ahead with truly remarkable answers and a few passes that they were gifted with. While it seemed like a convincing win for them, the unthinkable happened in the final round.

In the final round of the quiz, Lokhandwala Foundation School came back in style with consecutive answers on the buzzer and suddenly with one final question left the quiz seemed to be slipping away from Dhirubhai Ambani Int.School.
