Kya Aap Paanchvi Pass Se Tez Hai?

 



 

About the Show

   

 

Kya Aap Paanchvi Pass Se Tez Hai? is a studio-based game show in which succeeding contestants compete for a large sum of money by attempting to answer questions taken from primary school class materials. The format outlined below is how the show works.

Game Play Each round is played by an individual contestant, who is presented with the chance to win up to Rs 5 crores by answering 11 questions taken from class materials (e.g. textbooks or workbooks) of first to fifth class.

The contestant is presented with 10 subject cards, which he may answer in the order of his choice. Each correct answer moves the contestant higher up the ladder of rupee value. If a contestant answers all 10 questions correctly, he is given a chance to answer an 11th question for Rs 5 crores.

Each time a question is answered, the contestant must "lock in" the answer by saying it out loud and pressing a buzzer.

As each new question is read, the contestant is given the option to drop out with the amount of money currently in his bank. If the contestant chooses to answer the question, but gives the wrong answer, he walks away with nothing (during questions 1-5) or with Rs. 2, 00,000 (value of question 5).

The above mechanism varies on the 11th question, if the contestant should reach it. The 11th question is drawn from a separate pool of class five questions. Unlike previous questions, the contestant must commit to answering or walking away based on the subject alone. He or she will not be allowed to hear the question before making this decision.

The contestant also has three lifelines called cheats to use over the course of a round. All these cheats involve his classmates, which is a group of children seated on stage who are answering the same questions as the contestant. Every two questions, a new classmate joins the contestant and becomes his teammate for those two questions. The contestant can use his cheats at any time during the first 10 questions.

Cheats The first cheat is called Taak Jhaak, which means that the contestant has the opportunity to review his current teammate's answer before submitting his own.

The second cheat is Copy, in which the contestant may opt not to answer the question at all, but rather, let his current teammate answer for him. Unlike the "copy your classmate" cheat, in this instance, the contestant cannot reject his teammate's answer, but is stuck with it.

The final cheat is Bachao. This cheat is triggered automatically if the contestant gives a wrong answer. If the contestant's current partner turns out to have the correct answer, the contestant is then saved.

The only instance in which two cheats can be used on the same question is if the contestant chooses Taak Jhaak, rejects the kid's correct answer, gives a wrong answer himself, and is then saved by the kid. Other than this one scenario, the cheats must necessarily be used individually.

Once all three cheats have been used, the kids will stay in the "class" and no longer join the contestant at the podium.

If the contestant makes it to the 11th and final question, he must tackle that question without help, even if he has not used his cheats.

International Performance The format was originally created in the U.S and has been adapted in several countries worldwide.
