Details of Rounds

Round I – It is the qualifying round. There is no right or wrong answer in this round. Tarini Dolphin just wants to capture what you perceive about our rivers. This round helps to design workshop modules for school children which is based on the performance in this very round. Only when you have attempted all 10 answers, you can attempt Round II. In this round, Tarini Dolphin wants you to give your honest opinions and not get influenced by opinions of your friends, parents, teachers, etc.

Round II – You can move to the next round only when you have attempted all 10 questions correctly. The good news is that you can attempt it as many number of times as you want. Once you submit an unanswered question or an answer, Tarini Dolphin will tell you the correct answer and will also tell some interesting facts related to the question. It is a wonderful round where you will enhance your knowledge and expand your thoughts.
