TIME: 3 Hrs. MM: 70

General Instructions: All the questions are compulsory. The Question paper consists of four section A, B, C and D. Section A contains 8 questions of 1 mark each, section B is of 10 questions of 2 marks each, Section C has 9 questions of 3 marks each whereas Section D is of 3 questions of 5 marks each. There is no overall choice. However, an internal choice has been provided in one question of 2 marks, one question of 3 marks and all the three questions of 5 marks weight age. A student has to attempt only one of the alternatives in such questions. Wherever necessary, the diagrams drawn should be neat and clean and properly labeled.
