Duration: 3 Hrs Maximum Marks: 100
Read the following instructions carefully:
There are total 65 questions carrying 100 marks: Q.1 to Q.25 (25 questions) will carry
one mark each (subtotal 25 marks). Q.26 to Q.55 (30 questions) will carry two marks each
(subtotal 60 marks).Question pairs (Q.48,Q 49) and (Q. 50, Q 51) are common data questions
and question pairs (Q.52, Q.53) and (Q.54, Q.55) are linked answer questions. The answer to
the second question of the last two pairs will depend on the answer to the first question of the
pair. If the first question in the linked pair is wrongly answered or is unattempted, then the
answer to the second question in the pair will not be evaluated. Q 56 to Q 60 (5 questions) will
carry one mark each (subtotal 5 marks). Q 61 to Q 65 (5 questions) will carry two marks each
(subtotal 10 marks).
Negative Marking: For Q.1 to Q.25, 1/3 mark will be deducted for each wrong answer. For
Q.26 to Q.55, 2/3 mark will be deducted for each wrong answer. The question pairs (Q.52,
Q.53), and (Q.54, Q.55) are questions with linked answers. There will be negative marks only
for wrong answer to the first question of the linked answer question pair i.e. for Q.52 and
Q.54, 2/3 mark will be deducted for each wrong answer. There is no negative marking for Q.53
and Q.55. For Q.56 to Q.60, 1/3 mark will be deducted for each wrong answer. For Q.61 to
Q.65, 2/3 mark will be deducted for each wrong answer.
