Question 10 Explanation: 

CREDIT: Anshuman Mathur (Comments section, 10th October Quiz: );

Born in Norway in 1861, Fridtjof Nansen excelled as a scientist, polar explorer, diplomat and humanitarian.

By age 27, Nansen had already written his doctoral thesis on the central nervous system and made the first crossing of Greenland's treacherous ice cap. Soon he would lead a 25-month expedition into the Arctic Ocean, coming nearer to the North Pole than anyone before.
Yet Nansen is best known for his visionary work on behalf of refugees. As Europe struggled to rebuild after the first world war, he directed the League of Nations' first major humanitarian operation - the repatriation of 450,000 prisoners of war.

Nansen served as the League's first High Commissioner for Refugees from 1920-1930, helping hundreds of thousands of refugees to return home. His efforts enabled many others to become legal residents and find work in the countries where they had found refuge.
Nansen saw that one of the biggest problems facing refugees was the lack of internationally recognized identification papers. His solution, which came to be known as the 'Nansen passport', was the first legal instrument for the international protection of refugees.

When famine broke out in Russia in 1921-1922, Nansen organized a relief programme for millions of its victims. For his crucial work, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1922.

UNHCR established the Nansen Refugee Award in his honour in 1954.
