  • Which one of the following statements regarding the river Brahmaputra is not correct?

    a It spreads over countries of China, Bhutan, India and Bangladesh.
    b It spreads over the states of Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, West Bengal, Meghalaya, Nagaland and Sikkim.
    c Lohit, Dibang, Subansiri, Jiabharali, Dhansiri, Manas and Teesta are the principal right bank tributaries of the river.
    d While the South bank tributaries are flashy and have steep slopes, the North bank tributaries have deep meandering channels and fine alluvial soils.

    is framing of this question ambiguous, because more than one answer seems correct, as the question asks "incorrect."

    Regarding the NABH Nirman scheme, which of the following statements is/are correct?

    1. It aims to expand airport capacity by more than five times to handle a billion trips in a year.
    2. It is a fully funded scheme of the Ministry of Civil Aviation.
    Choose the correct answer using the codes given below:
    a 1 only
    b 2 only
    c Both 1 and 2
    d Neither 1 nor 2

    Correct Answer : a
    Your Answer : d

    Source : bussiness line
    The Finance Minister is seeking to provide a big push to the country's civil aviation sector, aiming at five-fold growth in passenger traffic to a billion trips a year.

    if you intentionally make wordings ambiguous like this, there is no point in givings such mocks! not only this question there were several more.

    for example : dominion status one.. how is irwin the answer? :sweat:

    I dont understand what is wrong here. Second option is wrong, as it is under PPP
    I'm saying answer should be D ..what I was trying to convey was that questions have been made unnecessarily complicated.

    How is cabinet more well defined in constitution than presidents rule ?

    Something is wrong in today's paper.. Last mock was excellent in standard or question and solution. Today it feels like it was done in a hurried manner!
    The term 'President's rule' isn't mentioned in constitution. It is emergency under article 356, popularly known as presi rule. Neither are the terms judicial review nor others are defined. So cabinet was the most appropriate option.
    Also that state flag question, Karnataka also has a state flag so that seems wrong to me.
    Karnataka has just formed a committee for state flag, it is upto MHA(central government) to give Karnataka its state flag or not.
  • IMO answer should be Martial Law as it's the only one both mentioned and defined-as-in mode of operation. Cabinet is only mentioned, it's operation is not stated.

    Martial law has only been mention but not defined.. (Art 34).. There is no definition as to what exactly is martial law
    We all are the same, till some get to know their potential!

    The answer is Lord Irwin indeed. "Deepavali declaration"
    Ye kahan se aagya bhai ! Deepavali DEC !
    Lord Irwin did inforally made a promise for dominion status but angrezo ki sun k fat gayi and he retracted..
    Yes so it can't be counted. August Offer was the first official acceptance of principle of Dominion Status.

    The korea question, Brahmaputra doesn't flow through Bhutan, Virupaksha originating during Lokamahadevi( Chalukya, was there in TN book iirc, or Upinder singh), just some of the ones I can recall on top of my head now. Lokpal C option seemed correct too, Maulana Azad and comrade too.

    Was a good paper overall if they didn't make all these mistakes.

    Yeah but the Manas isn't the Brahmaputra but joins it in Bodoland, unlike, say, the Siang or the Lohit which are but names of the same in Arunachal. Too hastily drawn together, this paper
