Wondering about the answers? You can join a Sourcing Contest discussion on our LinkedIn group.
Here are some hints:
1) What is the maximum number of results Google search can provide? (The specific quiz question was prompted by this blog post).
2) Search by Image on Google can be combined with the site: operator (X-raying). Regarding looking for a LinkedIn profile with the given profile image (Q1): the image in the contest had a piece of the URL shown, that was important as well; attention to details is important!
3) The Alumni page on LinkedIn would accept a keyword as the school name.
4) Files have properties.
Finally, one more question can be solved either by Googling or by reviewing the Boolean Mini-Book.
