Welcome to BYJU’S Sunday Challenge, the weekly quiz. Be the fastest to answer these questions and win exciting prizes.

This week, we take a trip down (and up) the number line as we quiz you on all things numerical. The topic for the week is ‘Numbers’. This week, we also have a bonus question that links all the other five questions. Answer all the questions correctly to stand a chance to win exciting goodies! 


You can take a shot at the questions and field your guesses in the comments section below. Answers will be revealed on subsequent Sundays in the comment section.

Ready? Here are your questions:

Question 1:

What is triskaidekaphobia the fear of?

Question 2:

The protagonist of The Matrix series is named after the Greek word for ‘new’. His name is an anagram of this number when spelled out in letters. Which number?

Question 3:

This term was first used in cricket to describe bowler H. H. Stephenson’s achievement. His fans collected money and bought him a hat to celebrate the event and thus this sporting term was born. What term is this?

Question 4:

What number connects the basketball player Gilbert Arenas, a Bombay-based 90s rock band spearheaded guitarist by Warren Mendonsa and the period immediately following Question Hour in the Indian Parliament?

Question 5:

Which number connects the following:

The number of limbs in a cephalopod; the spokes of the Buddhist dharmachakra; the maximum number of electrons that can occupy a valence shell.

Bonus Question:

The numbers in the answers to the five questions above all have something in common (not a finite list). What connects them? 

Take your guesses in the comments section below. Winners of this edition, along with the answers will be revealed next Sunday, so keep your eyes peeled!
