Geography Answer Writing -2017

Hello friends,
Lets try to solve all the previous year as well as various relevant questions related to geography. I will post questions everyday and if some one else want he can give question too. In this way we will try to cover optional 2 months before pre exam. All interested people gather here.

    Define the concept of isostasy and discuss the postulations of Airy and Pratt.(20 marks)

    Gud attempt ...however I would suggest following improvements
    .
    1.I would define isostasy as a phenomenon of mechanical stability experienced by earth where various high lying features like mountain, and low lying features like ocean basin remains in mechanical equilibrium on fast rotating earth....I feel this would be more elaborate.....
    2.Airy I guess was first to provide theory on isostasy ..so mention his before Pratt.
    3.I feel instead of mentioning ..historical background...I.e case of gravitational anomaly... I would focus more on mentioning how airy explained existence of isostasy and then how Pratt ..gave his theory to remove limitations of airy ..... And will conclude it with latest understanding...in few lines.....mentioning Gravitational anomaly...will also require ...to mention how Airy and Pratt theories ..give explanation to this anomaly.....considering its 20 marker...not much words available.....

    I will write tomorrow.......btw very nice handwriting......keep it up...

    I was thinking...first we complete paper 1... Then we start paper 2....paper 2 demands knowledge of paper 1 itself..... What do u think ?

    I thought Airy's was much better
    Btw, how to decide the number of words for a 20 marker?

  • Test series or coaching is better for geography optional before prelims.
    Pls share your experiences both for those who gave mains or otherwise[i.e those who have already prepared the subject ones].

  • Q.Critically evaluate the continental drift hypothesis of A.Wegner.(20 Marks)

    good attempt. but i think since the question asks us to critically analyze, you should spend around 35% on explaining it and its plus points, and 65% on its shortcomings and criticism. plus u wrote that he couldn't explain why continents moved north and westward. he actually tried to explain that, but gave a wrong explanation.
    i think in critically analyze type of questions, a better format is to talk about the theory and simultaneously criticize it. for example, while talking about the movement we can say that:
    Wegener suggested that gravitational pull of sun and moon was responsible for the westward drift, while northward drift resulted from centrifugal forces generated due to rotation of the earth. however, later it was rightly pointed out that these forces are too weak to account for the continental drift, and currently it is believed that convection currents are responsible for the movement of lithospheric plates.
    in this way we can simultaneously talk about the theory as well as its critical evaluation.

    yeah, this approach is way better than mine. Thanks for the additional info., I didn't know that :)
