Read the following instructions carefully. 
 
1. Do not open the seal of the Question Booklet until you are asked to do so by the invigilator. 
2. Take out the Optical Response Sheet (ORS) from this Question Booklet without breaking the seal 
and read the instructions printed on the ORS carefully. If you find that either 
a. The Question Booklet Code printed at the right hand top corner of this page does not match with 
the Question Booklet Code at the right hand top corner of the ORS or 
b. The Question Paper Code preceding the Registration number on the ORS is not PI,  
            then exchange the booklet immediately with a new sealed Question Booklet.  
3. On the right hand side of the ORS, using ONLY a black ink ballpoint pen, (i) darken the appropriate 
bubble under each digit of your registration number and (ii) write your registration number, your name 
and name of the examination centre and put your signature at the specified location. 
4. This Question Booklet contains 16 pages including blank pages for rough work. After you are 
permitted to open the seal, check all pages and report discrepancies, if any, to the invigilator.  
5. There are a total of 65 questions carrying 100 marks. All these questions are of objective type. Each 
question has only one correct answer. Questions 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 ballpoint pen 
against the question number. For each question darken the bubble of the correct answer. More 
than one answer bubbled against a question will be treated as an incorrect response. 
6. Since bubbles darkened by the black ink ballpoint pen cannot be erased, candidates should darken the 
bubbles in the ORS very carefully. 
7. Questions Q.1 – Q.25 carry 1 mark each. Questions Q.26 – Q.55 carry 2 marks each. The 2 marks 
questions include two pairs of common data questions and two pairs of linked answer questions. The 
answer to 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 not attempted, 
then the answer to the second question in the pair will not be evaluated. 
8. Questions Q.56 – Q.65 belong to General Aptitude (GA) section and carry a total of 15 marks. 
Questions Q.56 – Q.60 carry 1 mark each, and questions Q.61 – Q.65 carry 2 marks each. 
9. Questions not attempted will result in zero mark and wrong answers will result in NEGATIVE 
marks.  For all 1 mark questions, ? mark will be deducted for each wrong answer. For all 2 marks 
questions, ? 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.  
10. Calculator is allowed whereas charts, graph sheets or tables are NOT allowed in the examination hall. 
11. Rough work can be done on the Question Booklet itself. Blank pages are provided at the end of the 
Question Booklet for rough work. 
12. Before the start of the examination, write your name and registration number in the space provided 
below using a black ink ballpoint pen.

Read the following instructions carefully. 
 
1. Do not open the seal of the Question Booklet until you are asked to do so by the invigilator. 
2. Take out the Optical Response Sheet (ORS) from this Question Booklet without breaking the seal 
and read the instructions printed on the ORS carefully. If you find that either 
a. The Question Booklet Code printed at the right hand top corner of this page does not match with 
the Question Booklet Code at the right hand top corner of the ORS or 
b. The Question Paper Code preceding the Registration number on the ORS is not PI,  
            then exchange the booklet immediately with a new sealed Question Booklet.  
3. On the right hand side of the ORS, using ONLY a black ink ballpoint pen, (i) darken the appropriate 
bubble under each digit of your registration number and (ii) write your registration number, your name 
and name of the examination centre and put your signature at the specified location. 
4. This Question Booklet contains 16 pages including blank pages for rough work. After you are 
permitted to open the seal, check all pages and report discrepancies, if any, to the invigilator.  
5. There are a total of 65 questions carrying 100 marks. All these questions are of objective type. Each 
question has only one correct answer. Questions 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 ballpoint pen 
against the question number. For each question darken the bubble of the correct answer. More 
than one answer bubbled against a question will be treated as an incorrect response. 
6. Since bubbles darkened by the black ink ballpoint pen cannot be erased, candidates should darken the 
bubbles in the ORS very carefully. 
7. Questions Q.1 – Q.25 carry 1 mark each. Questions Q.26 – Q.55 carry 2 marks each. The 2 marks 
questions include two pairs of common data questions and two pairs of linked answer questions. The 
answer to 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 not attempted, 
then the answer to the second question in the pair will not be evaluated. 
8. Questions Q.56 – Q.65 belong to General Aptitude (GA) section and carry a total of 15 marks. 
Questions Q.56 – Q.60 carry 1 mark each, and questions Q.61 – Q.65 carry 2 marks each. 
9. Questions not attempted will result in zero mark and wrong answers will result in NEGATIVE 
marks.  For all 1 mark questions, ? mark will be deducted for each wrong answer. For all 2 marks 
questions, ? 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.  
10. Calculator is allowed whereas charts, graph sheets or tables are NOT allowed in the examination hall. 
11. Rough work can be done on the Question Booklet itself. Blank pages are provided at the end of the 
Question Booklet for rough work.
