1)An 80 year old technology will end on 24 October,2012. The last place to enjoy it will be Northern Ireland. The system will entirely switch over to a new technology on 24th October,2012. The old one began in August 1932 and it was implemented with a schedule in 1936. What is the switch that is being made?

2)The government of the state of Maharashtra instituted a Commission of Inquiry under Justice PB Sawant in September 2003 to enquire into allegations of corruption against several people, including four ministers in the state as well as the "Hind Swaraj Trust". The Commission submitted its report on 22 February 2005 in which it indicted the Hind Swaraj Trust for corrupt practice of spending Rs. 2.20 lakhs of its funds on the birthday celebrations of its leader. Who is the leader we are talking about?

4)X in their modern form are tight-fitting trousers that reach to the ankle, where they end in a snug cuff, and are worn primarily for horse riding. Sir Pratap Singh, a younger son of the Maharaja of X, popularised in England the style of riding-trousers worn in _______, a design that he apparently improved and perfected by himself and first tailored in India about 1890.

Singh was an avid polo player, and when he visited Queen Victoria in England during her Diamond Jubilee celebrations of 1897, bringing with him his entire polo team, they caused a sensation among the fashionable circles of the United Kingdom, with their reputation enhanced by the fact that they won many polo matches. X?
