So, you take pride in your Computer Science and IT technical skills? Then Chase is just what you were waiting for!

Chase is Online Quiz composed of multiple choice questions, with only one correct option. This game is composed of multiple rounds. During each round of the game, there is one contestant and all other participants are part of the audience. To select the contestant(Contestant Selection Round), a question is put to all the participants. Participants are required to submit responses within a period of 60 seconds. From all the participants, who submit the correct answer, one is selected to contest for the prize. Contestant is selected using Age-based algorithm and with some randomness too. The selection would be based on the player's age (time spent acting as a participant) and the time taken to send in the response. A Contestant would face a maximum of 30 questions during a round. The Contestant will get questions in increasing order of difficulty as he/she moves along. That is, answering a question correctly will fetch a more difficult question. You can also view snapshot of Chase enviornment.

  • All participants can view the Questions that are being posted to the Contestant. However only the Contestant can submit answers.
  • To win, the Contestant needs to answer correctly all the 30 questions. Contestant loses on the first incorrect response.
