OQ #81

And the final set. Thanks for the participation folks!

1. Their name came from their home state being the “Land of 10,000 _____”. However, in 1960, they moved to a new city in a different state, but retained their name even though their new home city had no _____. What am I talking about?

2. Catherine of Braganza was the Portuguese queen consort of England, Scotland and Ireland who married King Charles II in 1662. What was given as the dowry in this marriage?

3. _______ most often means a more-or-less equal exchange or substitution of goods or services. People often use the term to mean "a favour for a favour" and the phrases with almost identical meaning include: "give and take", "tit for tat", "this for that", and "you scratch my back, and I'll scratch yours". This phrase was extensively used in a famous 1991 movie. Give me the phrase and the movie.

4. Amritlal Thakkar was a famous social reformer. The Government of India even issued a stamp in his honor in 1969. He was a very knowledgeable person and an expert in many fields, to such a level that he would promptly answer any question that was fired at him. Why is he famous to us/What is his popular nickname?

5. Coin vending machines  are  very  popular today from dispensing beverages to checking weights. But  what was the first  coin vending  machine created  to dispense?
