Read the following instructions carefully. 1. 2. Do not open the seal of the Question Booklet unlit you are asked to do so by the invigilator. Take out the Optical Response Sheet (ORS) from this Question Booklet without breaking the seal and read the instruments printed on the ORS carefully. If you find the Question Booklet Code printed at the right hand top corner of this page does not match with the Booklet Code on the ORS, exchange the booklet immediately with a new sealed Question Booklet. On the right half of the ORS, using ONLY a black ink ball point pen, (i) darken the bubble corresponding to your test paper code and the appropriate bubble under each digit of your registration number and (ii) write your registration number, your name and name of the examination center and put your signature at the specified location. This Question Booklet contain 16 pages including blank pages for rough work. After you are permitted to open the seal, please check all pages and report discrepancies, if any, to the invigilator. There are a total of 65 Question carrying 100 marks. All these questions are of objective type. Each question has only on correct answer. Question must be answered on the left hand side of the ORS by darkening the appropriate bubble (marked A, B, C, D) using ONLY a black ink ball point pen against the question number. For each question darken the bubble of the correct answer. More than on answer bubbled against a question will be treated as an incorrect response. Since bubbles darkened by the black ink ball point pen cannot be erased, candidates should darken the bubbles in the ORS very carefully. Question Q. 1 Q. 25 carry 1 mark each. Questions Q. 26 - Q. 55 carry 2 marks each. The 2 marks question include two pairs of common data questions and two pairs of linked answer questions. The answer of the second question of the linked answer questions depends on the answer to the first question of the pair. If the first question in the linked pair is wrongly answered or is unattemped, then the answer to the second question in the pair will not be evaluated. Question Q. 56 - Q. 65 belong to General Aptitude (GA) section and carry a total of 15 marks. Question Q. 56 - Q.60 carry 1 mark each, and questions Q. 61 -Q. 65 carry 2 marks each. Unattempted questions will result in zero mark and wrong answer will result in NEGATIVE marks. For all 1 mark questions 1/3 mark will be deducted for each wrong answer. For all 2 marks questions, 2/3 mark will be deducted for each wrong answer. However, in the case of the linked answer question pair, there will be negative marks only for wrong answer to the first question and no negative marks for wrong answer to the second question. Calculator is allowed whereas charts, graph sheets or tables are NOT allowed in the examination hall. Rough work can be done on the question paper itself. Blank pages are provided at the end of the question paper for rough work. Before the start of the examination, write your name and registration number in the space provided below using a blank ink ball point pen.
