SECTION IV
Matrix Match Type
This section contains 2 questions. Each question contains statements given in two columns
which have to be matched. Statements (A), (B), (C), (D) in Column I have to be matched
with statements (1, 2, 3, 4) in Column II. One statement in first column has one or more than
one match with the statements in second column. The answers to these questions have to be
appropriately bubbled as illustrated in the following example.
If the correct matches are A 1,3, B 3, C 2,3 and D 2,4, then the correctly bubbled
