Sorry for late posting of questions but can't help it exams on .. will be regular again once it gets over ..
well here's the question

In 1992, a student at the California Institute of Arts, created a short film “The Whoopass ___”
which was picked up by Hanna-Barbera as an innovative cartoon. They modified the name
“Whoopass” as it was considered inappropriate and then created what was considered to be a
combined spoof on American/Japanese superheroes, making heavy references to pop culture and rock bands of the 70s and 80s, especially the Beatles, along the way.

Keep on answering the Golden Gnosis for making lots of points

Thanks for a huge response to DD#32 & DD#38
The correct Answers would be declared tomorrow.

Daily Doze : DD#42

Q. The _______________ is a phrase that encapsulates the more technical notion of sensitive dependence on initial conditions in chaos theory. Small variations of the initial condition of a dynamical system may produce large variations in the long term behavior of the system. So this is sometimes presented as esoteric behavior, but can be exhibited by very simple systems: for example, a ball placed at the crest of a hill might roll into any of several valleys depending on slight differences in initial position.
