Read between the lines - If your fingers are on the Mobile Phone, my fingers are pointing outside the door - If you think the quiz is too difficult - read more often. - If you think the quiz is easy - read even more often, make a quiz of your own and conduct the same - Be aggressive. You are not 5 year olds playing catch.
