PRELIMS-2018 DISCUSSION PAGE
Discuss UPSC Civil Services Prelims Exam -2018 General Studies Paper Questions Here (Especially the confusing Ones)
Dear candidates, hope you have given your best shot in today’s (2018) UPSC civil services preliminary exam papers. Now is the time to move on and focus on Mains. However, for 2-3 days you have the luxury of discussing and debating certain confusing/controversial questions so that one can get fair idea about right answer to such questions. As every question matters, for some (those who expect border scores) getting right answer in 1-2 questions will be very relieving.
Please mention authentic sources(with name of book/author/page numbers/URL etc) for the right answers. Meanwhile we too will come up with answer key.
Please don’t debate cutoff in this post. We will post a separate post in 1-2 days (once we post answer keys) where you can post expected scores. Here, you can yourself estimate expected cutoff looking at scores of fellow candidates.
Please restrict to discussing answers to questions of Prelims General Studies Paper-1 (2018).
Especially, those who have not given prelims in 2018, please contribute your bit to find correct answers to tricky questions.
We are posting screenshots of today’s question paper below. Based on this paper, please quote question number and your solution (with source/reference).
