__Pattern of Question Papers__

**15% of the total marks,**the General Aptitude section will carry

**15% of the total marks**and the

**remaining 70% percentage of the total marks**is devoted to the subject of the paper.

**15% of the total marks**and the

**remaining 85% of the total marks**is devoted to the subject of the paper.

**(i) Multiple Choice Questions (MCQ)**carrying 1 or 2 marks each in all papers and sections. These questions are objective in nature, and each will have a choice of four answers, out of which the candidate has to mark the correct answer(s).

**(ii) Numerical Answer Questions**of 1 or 2 marks each in all papers and sections. For these questions the answer is a real number, to be entered by the candidate using the virtual keypad. No choices will be shown for this type of questions.

**Design of Questions**

The questions in a paper may be designed to test the following abilities:

**(i) Recall:**These are based on facts, principles, formulae or laws of the discipline of the paper. The candidate is expected to be able to obtain the answer either from his/her memory of the subject or at most from a one-line computation.

(B) in rake face

(C) in shear zone

(D) due to friction between chip and tool

**(ii) Comprehension:**These questions will test the candidate’s understanding of the basics of his/her field, by requiring him/her to draw simple conclusions from fundamental ideas.

(B) compensate for auxiliary field ampere turns

(C) limit armature current at starting

(D) provide regenerative braking

**(iii) Application:**In these questions, the candidate is expected to apply his/her knowledge either through computation or by logical reasoning.

(A) 5.0 (B) 8.0 (C) 10.0 (D) 12.0

**(iv) Analysis and Synthesis:**In these questions, the candidate is presented with data, diagrams, images etc. that require analysis before a question can be answered. A Synthesis question might require the candidate to compare two or more pieces of information. Questions in this category could, for example, involve candidates in recognising unstated assumptions, or separating useful information from irrelevant information.

__Marking Scheme__

**1-mark**multiple-choice questions,

**1/3 marks**will be deducted for a wrong answer. Likewise, for

**2-marks**multiple-choice questions,

**2/3**marks will be deducted for a wrong answer. There is no negative marking for numerical answer type questions.

#### General Aptitude (GA) Questions

**15 marks.**The GA section includes 5 questions carrying

**1**mark each (sub-total

**5 marks**) and 5 questions carrying

**2**marks each (sub-total 10 marks).

### Question Papers other than GG, XE and XL

**25**questions carrying

**1 mark**each (sub-total

**25 marks**) and

**30**questions carrying

**2 marks**each (sub-total

**60 marks**). The question paper will consist of questions of multiple choice and numerical answer type. For numerical answer questions, choices will not be given. Candidates have to enter the answer (which will be a real number, signed or unsigned, e.g. 25.06, -25.06, 25, -25 etc.) using a virtual keypad. An appropriate range will be considered while evaluating the numerical answer type questions so that the candidate is not penalized due to the usual round-off errors.

GG (Geology and Geophysics) Paper

#### XE Paper (Engineering Sciences)

**compulsory.**This section contains

**11**questions carrying a total of

**15 marks:**7 questions carrying

**1 mark**each (sub-total

**7**marks), and 4 questions carrying

**2 marks**each (sub-total

**8**marks). Some questions may be of numerical answer type questions.

**35**marks: 9 questions carrying

**1 mark**each (sub-total

**9**marks) and 13 questions carrying

**2 marks**each (sub-total

**26**marks). Some questions may be of numerical answer type.

#### XL Paper (Life Sciences)

**compulsory.**This section contains

**15**questions carrying a total of

**25 marks:**5 questions carrying

**1 mark**each (sub-total

**5**marks) and 10 questions carrying

**2-marks**each (sub-total

**20**marks). Some questions may be of numerical answer type.

#### Note on Negative Marking for Wrong Answers

**1-mark**multiple choice questions,

**1/3 mark**will be deducted for a wrong answer. Likewise, for

**2-mark**multiple choice questions,

**2/3**mark will be deducted for a wrong answer.

**However, there is no negative marking for a wrong answer in numerical answer type questions.**

sir,i have given wrong option for my caste so,will you give me any solution for this??
