In other words. GA questions are of multiple choice type. The questions based on the above four logics may be a mix of single stand alone statement/phrase /data type questions. However. the first answer is an intermediate step in working out the second answer.4. where the answer to the first question of the pair is required in order to answer its successor. For multiple choice type questions. Each question under this group will carry two marks. 4. then the answer to the second question in the pair will not be evaluated.Example Q. XE and XL These papers would contain 25 questions carrying one mark each (sub-total 25 marks) and 30 questions carrying two marks each (sub-total 60 marks). The two questions are designed such that the solution to the second question depends upon the answer to the first one. and carry a total of 15 marks. A problem statement is followed by two questions based on the problem statement. Or these can be common data questions. Examples of each of this design is given in the types of questions above. In the ONLINE papers. where each question carries 2 marks.0 (C) 10.0 (iv) Analysis and Synthesis: These can be linked answer questions. 1/3 mark will be deducted for a wrong answer. 4. Common data based questions: Two questions are linked to a common data problem. Likewise. and two pairs of questions would be linked answer questions. Out of these. Linked answer questions: These questions are of problem solving type. The sequent depth ratio of a hydraulic jump in a rectangular channel is 16. 4. 2/3 mark will be deducted for a wrong answer to the first question only.

There is no negative marking for numerical answer type questions. If the first question in the linked pair is wrongly answered or is unattempted.4.48. in which two questions share the same data but can be solved independently of each other. Each question in such ‘linked answer questions’ will carry two marks. Each question is independent and its solution is obtainable from the above problem data or passage directly. the question paper will consist of questions of multiple choice type and numerical answer type.0 (D) 12.1 General Aptitude (GA) Questions In all papers. each question will have four choices 31   .
