Ramki the hat-trick winner with Vivek Singh the mentor of IXL

It was Ramki all the way right from the first answer MARTIAL which he got in a flash, no one was anywhere close to him all through the two CWs of the on stage round as well as the buzzer round. So commanding was his performance that his score at the end was equal to the sum score of the two who were placed second and third
