In today's episode of KBC. The lady that closed today's episode with answering that impossible question only answerable by the likes of a Historian. I genuinely believe she was pre-fed the answers prior to her appearance. After having shown what she does for a living, she holds a pretty solid job in the real estate sector, a job that runs heavily on bribes. I wouldn't be surprised if her whole appearance on KBC is the result of a form of business transaction. If this is the case, it bags the question on the loyalty of the show.  
 
Or she took a lucky guess. Though, if this is the case, it's pretty remarkable that she did so, even with two life lines still available to her.
 
After her answering the question, Bachchan throws in a dialogue about the progress of women in today's day and age. Mind you, I don't deny the integrity of his dialogue. But it seems to me a bit too far-fetched that this women was capable of answering such a question and Bachchan's dialogue could be a form of a cover-up on her actual wits.
 
Would love to hear what others think also?

You're wrong. Even I knew the answer was Sir Hugh Rose. Rani Laxmibai was a very famous freedom-fighter and I bet you that every Indian school has the name SIR HUGH ROSE mentioned in History books if the chapter is related to the Rebellion of 1857 or Rani Laxmibai. The name is very popular in India.

Even I knew its was Sir Hugh Rose. Maybe she watched Jhansi Ki Rani on Zee Tv too. Do not under estimate people we tend to pick up facts from different sources without even realising it. 

I too have been gobsmacked that some people do not know the simplest answer to questions living in India and me living in UK knowing it.

If this were the case, this question wouldn't and shouldn't be placed as question #11. Should be far down below the latter than.
 
BTW, thank you to everyone for providing their input.

I know I was shouting at the screen Balaram, couldn't believe he had to waste a lifeline on that question.
