Dibyo’s 500 point quiz

Congratulations are in order to Dibyo who recently reached (and crossed) the 500 point mark! Great work Mr D! <applause />

To mark and celebrate this, we contacted him for a question and he replied. However, he’s not sent one question, he’s sent nine. Yes, nine! And they’re not just “direct” questions, they are of a special format.

Dibyo’s 500 point quiz is a Stage-3 format quiz!

Format:
So, the format of this quiz: there are a total of nine questions. The answers to the first three questions are connected to each other (say C-1). The answers to the next three are connected (say C-2) and the final three are connected (say C-3). Further, C-1, C-2, and C-3 are connected, and this connect is the so-called “stage-3”.

Rules, points:
We will be posting three questions per day (all 3 questions in one post). So on each day, you can potentially win 4 points (1 for each answer + 1 point for the connect of the day). If you can get the stage-3 answer on day 1, you get 3 points. If you can get it on day 2 you get 2 points, and a single point for getting it on day 3. No negative marks for wrong guesses. One guess every day max. Please post your stage-3 guesses and as SEPARATE comments from your daily answers!


So, without further ado, here’s Set 1:

Set 1 >> Question 1:

Set 1 >> Question 2

Identify the logo

Set 1 >> Question 3:

Some stage 2 cracks; no stage 3 cracks.
