    Consider the following statements about Preventive Detention provisions in the Constitution of India.

    1. Both the Parliament and the state legislatures can concurrently make a law of preventive detention for the security of India.

    2. The Constitution has not specified the maximum period for which a person can be detained in any classes of cases under a preventive detention law.

    Which of the statements given above is/are correct?

    How can it be B? Hasnt Consti mentioned 3 months as the max period?

    It's always seems impossible untill it is done

  • Consider the following statements regarding the ocean currents in the Northern Indian ocean:

    1. The ocean currents move clockwise in January and anti-clockwise in July.

    The case of North Indian ocean is different.

  • Consider the following statements regarding schools of Indian Philosophy:
    1. Carvaka is a materialistic and atheistic philosophy.
    2. Sankhya is a dualistic philosophy.
    3. Brahman is the only reality is the essence of Vedanta.

    How is statement 3 true? It is true only for Advita Vedanta not for other schools of vedanta afaik.
    Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies..

    Agar aisa paper ayega to cutoff 70 k aas pas hi rahega.. UPSC paper is always well balanced with a mix of conceptual and direct questions..
    Scored 80.
    Medico...target ias
    Prelims 6, Mains 6,Interview 0
    A failed aspirant..
  • Scored 94 :neutral:
    Have doubts regarding their various answers. Like Brahman is the only reality is the essence of Vedanta. What about Dvaita of Madhava? The Poona Pact was accepted by the Government as an amendment to the Communal Award. How is this correct? Didnt the Gov of India Act 1935 extend the separate electorate to SCs?

  • Where to check scores?
  • In light of the confusion caused by 1st statement of Beti Bachao Beti Padao question which is shown wrong in the key, I request seniors to guide how shall we treat such statement which is true in its entirety but is incomplete in facts.

  • Got 94 matks online
  • 95.33 ! exam k pehle aise number ! :|
  • Got 99.33 marks
    Paper quality wasn't upto the mark but more importantly the test showed me the areas I'm weak at and need to work in the coming days ; so no complaints.
    Thank you @ForumIAS :)

    However, I think, except for a few questions and vague statements here and there, paper was not that bad. UPSC can have ambiguous statements too, remember last year!
    Need to buckle up and take extreme care in the exam to not make any silly mistake like I did in today's paper.

    Poona pact was accepted as an amendment to the communal awards, for sure..

    Regarding Beti bachao answer key..
    BBBP is an initiative oF MoWCD?
    answer key of best mock : No it is joint initiative of three ministries WCD ,health and hrd.

    Q. are you your mothers son?
    me: yes
    key maker of best mock test : NO ,because you are ur fathers son
    me :facepalm
    Q Do you breathe in oxygen to live?
    me: yes
    key maker: No. Because you take air to breathe which consists of many things apart from oxygen.so you dont take oxygen.

    Q pulicat lake is in andhra pradesh?
    me :yes
    answer key of best mock test : No it is in tamil nadu and andhra pradesh.so not in andhra pradesh.
  • Scored 94 :neutral:

    Poona pact was accepted as an amendment to the communal awards, for sure..
    even by the gvt? why did it introduce the electorate for SCs in GoI Act 1935 then?
