SECTION 1 (Maximum Marks: 24)
? This section contains SIX (06) questions.
? Each question has FOUR options for correct answer(s). ONE OR MORE THAN ONE of these four
option(s) is (are) correct option(s).
? For each question, choose the correct option(s) to answer the question.
? Answer to each question will be evaluated according to the following marking scheme:
Full Marks : +?? If only (all) the correct option(s) is (are) chosen.
Partial Marks : +?? If all the four options are correct but ONLY three options are chosen.
Partial Marks : +?? If three or more options are correct but ONLY two options are chosen, both of
which are correct options.
Partial Marks : +?? If two or more options are correct but ONLY one option is chosen and it is a
correct option.
Zero Marks : 0 If none of the options is chosen (i.e. the question is unanswered).
Negative Marks : -?? In all other cases.
? For Example: If first, third and fourth are the ONLY three correct options for a question with second
option being an incorrect option; selecting only all the three correct options will result in +4 marks.
Selecting only two of the three correct options (e.g. the first and fourth options), without selecting any
incorrect option (second option in this case), will result in +2 marks. Selecting only one of the three
correct options (either first or third or fourth option) ,without selecting any incorrect option (second
option in this case), will result in +1 marks. Selecting any incorrect option(s) (second option in this case),
with or without selection of any correct option(s) will result in -2 marks.
