QUIZ – 2016: Insights Current Affairs Quiz

01 October, 2016




Q3, September 30th Quiz, (Click Here): Regarding the Tsutsugamushi Triangle – Answer does not change. The triangle is not a perfect geometrical triangle. It refers to the geographical space which looks like a triangle when mapped. If the words ‘Northern Japan’ were replaced with ‘Far Eastern Russia’, then too the statement would be correct. Additionally, if a similar statement appears in UPSC, they won’t be testing your rote knowledge or the technicality  – they’ll essentially check whether you have an idea of it or not. That is, they are likely to give the statement in the same form as we have, or in the following forms: ‘the disease is endemic to India’, or, ‘the disease is endemic to South East Asia’ and so on – you then would know definitely whether the statement is correct or not.
