• The score (points) of the participant depends on the weightage of the question (more the 

  weightage, more the score) and also on the number of participants who have already solved  that question at that time (i.e. more the participants who have already solved that 

  question before you, lesser will be your score).


• Points will be awarded for solving the puzzle and the mandatory question from the pool. However, the participant will not be allowed to solve the puzzle once he chooses a question from the pool of 6 questions.



• The scoring formula:


     1. Score of the participant will be  S = 340 + (W * 10) - [(11- W) * (N -1)]   (in points).

        This is only for the mandatory question. (from the pool of 6 questions)




             W – Weightage of the question (1,2,3,4,5,6).

             N – Number of people who have already solved that question before.


     2. Bonus part (ie. encrypted puzzle) :  50 points.
