  2. Dear Team,

    Excellent initiative.

    Very neatly done and very prompt as well.

    Is it possible that when you give the prelims questions, maybe you can give the approx cut off as well, just so that everyone knows and will help.

    Regards
    Nikhil Chitlangia

    • Hi Nikhil, thank you for the appreciation! With respect to your suggestion, we will ask our contributors to take note of the cut-off. Good luck to you at Crucible!
