How to work out answers in a quiz?

Quizzers new to the Indian open quizzing circuit often find the questions hard to crack. Good quizzes often try to design questions such that answer scan be 'worked out' with the help of hints. Like with learning to solve cryptic crosswords, it's often just a matter of learning the rules, figuring out where the embedded hints could be, and patiently trying to answer questions. Ramanand put together a 'annotated' version of one of his quizzes to show just how one can learn to answer questions in such a setting. Here it is. Hope this helps you make progress as a quizzer!
