Sonia Yadav gets it all easy from first to fifth question winning Rs.10000 easily but faces hurdle with her sixth question which is about Indian Airforce’s motto.

Sonia Yadav sails through the next set of questions easily and crosses the big hurdle of tenth question which earns her Rs.320000. And on the eleventh question, Sonia Yadav cracks it easily where she had to identify the animal played in a video. Gets it easy, Komodo Dagon! Sonia Yadav consumes a lot of times at the twelfth question which is about North-East. After using up both her remaining lifelines, Sonia cracks it and earns Rs.12,50,0000 which makes the audience give her a huge round of applause.
The thirteenth question is about history which she inds it tougher and decides to quit the game. Sonia Yadav, the first contestant quits the game gracefully taking the winning amount of Rs.6,40,000 with her handed over by host Amitabh Bachchan.
