I was going through the GS SCore test copies of a few toppers and there are a few things that I have noted. I'll use the following copy as an example -http://iasscore.in/pdf/copy/Ethics/ETHICS/AIR 34 ASHWANI KUMAR PANDEY ETHICS-3.pdf
Question 1 - Good answer. But how about the Nordic countries that are quite green. The generalisation in the 3rd last paragraph is factually wrong.
Question 2 - The second part - Point 2 - Ridiculous to believe that you'll have that luxury.
Question 3 - This is just a downright anti-libertarian stance. Why not increase your social welfare more by progressive taxation instead? This is ridiculously impractical.
Question 4 - Grammatical error in para 2.
Question 6 - "Advocates (highly paid)...." - what is the imputation?
Question 7 - The example of Lee Kuan Yew. Is that really apt when writing for the CSE in this democracy of ours? Just read this - http://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2015/03/lee-kuan-yew-conundrum-democracy-singapore/388955/
Question 8 - We all love politician-bashing. But where's the other side? Where are the examples of the founding fathers to bear contrast? Where's the discussion about the other types of corruption and how they harm? It's not very balanced.
Question 10 - Recommendations are too idealistic and impractical
Am I too unethical or are these answers just too impractical? What is the UPSC looking for - dumb submission to ideals (doomed to fail) or practical ethics?
