Indian-Origin 12-Year-Old Becomes UK’s ‘Child Genius’. Can You Answer the Questions He Aced?

A 12-year-old boy from north London, Rahul, became an overnight hero on the British reality competition series Child Genius a few days ago, and now he’s won the title!

He beat his 9-year-old opponent, Ronan, 10-4, in the final round.

A screengrab from the show

Rahul’s chosen subject for the final round was Edward Jenner’s medical innovation and methodology in 18th Century England. He bagged the title once he correctly answered a question on 19th Century artists William Holman Hunt and John Everett Millais.

So how much of a genius is Rahul? Well, you can now find out for yourself. Test yourself by answering these seven questions from the show’s final round:

1. Selim I took control of which empire in 1512?
2. Calculate 22 x 8, then subtract 19, multiply by 8 and divide by 2
3. In revolutionary France, who led the committee of public safety?
4. Calculate 41 x 8, subtract 24, multiply by 5, divide by 4 and add 19
5. What is the freezing point of water in degrees kelvin?
6. Calculate 20 x 7, subtract 16, multiply by 6, divide by 8 and add 18
