IPS officer Mohita Sharma became the second crorepati on the show. She already crossed a milestone by becoming the first civil servant to become a crorepati on the show, and was headed towards Rs. 7 crore question.
However, Mohita eventually quit the show at Rs. 7 crore question, and went home with just Rs. 1 crore.
The Rs. 7 crore question which she failed to answer was – Launched in 1817, which of these ships built by the Wadia group in Bombay is the oldest British warship still afloat?
The options for the question were – A) HMS Minden B) HMS Cornwallis C) HMS Trincomalee D) HMS Meanee
Unsure of the answer, Mohita quit the show. She had just exhausted her lifeline – expert advice on Rs. 1 crore question.
After quitting, as per the ritual, Amitabh Bachchan asked Mohita to guess an answer. She picked the option B) HMS Cornwalls. It was the wrong answer.
The right answer to the question was – C) HMS Trincomalee. Even if Mohita would have not quit the show, she would take home only Rs. 1 crore.
With the help of the expert Pankaj Pachauri, Mohita gave the correct answer to Rs. 1 crore question – Which of these explosives was first patented in 1898 by German chemist Georg Friedrich Henning and first used in World War II?
The options for the question were – A) HMX B) RDX C) TNT D) PETN. The correct answer was – B) RDX.
Mohita Sharma is now the second contestant to turn a crorepati on Amitabh Bachchan hosted ‘KBC 12’. Nazia Nazim was the first to win that.
