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 IN,
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 20 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.
