You will select the response which you want to mark on the Answer Sheet. In case, you feel that
there is more than one correct response, mark the response which you consider the best. In any
case, choose ONLY ONE response for each item.
5. You have to mark your responses ONLY on the separate Answer Sheet provided. See dire<;tions in
the Answer Sheet.

10. Penalty for wrong Answers :
(i) There are four alternatives for the answer to every question. For each question for which
a wrong answer has been given by the candidate, one-third (0,33) of the marks a5sigued
to that question will be deducted as penalty.
(ii) If a candidate gives more than one answer, it will be treated as wrong answer even if one
of the given answers happens to be correct and there will be same penalty as above to that
(iii) If a question is left blank i.e., no answer is given by the candidate, there will be no penalty
for that question.
