    Dear INSIGHTS,

    TEST-29, QUESTION-24

    Central Sector Schemes- Union list, Implemented by Central govt. machinery
    Centrally Sponsored Schemes- State list, Implemented by State govts.

    This information is given in solutions provided by you.

    Therefore ONLY STATEMENT 1 is CORRECT.

    Please correct me if I am wrong.

  • Palash Gupta

    TEST-29 QUES-43

    Answer should be D based on the information in solutions and other resources.

    • sakshi s

      yes.. it should be D

      • Palash Gupta

        Dear Sakshi plz check ques. 24 also.

        Thank u.

        • Discipline9

          I think answer for 24 should be A only as it is evident from explanation. I think in Corrections file it is a mistake.

  • Prince George

    In 29th paper, Q7, US+Chinese+Russian Prez/Premier has visited India. But they are not in the option, not even in the correction list.

    Rule of law in Article 14 of the Constitution implies that
    1. The state cannot treat citizens differently with respect to the same law.
    2. The state cannot punish citizens except for violating the law.
    3. The state cannot confer any special socio-economic privilege on any individual.
    Choose the correct answer using the codes below.
    a) 1 and 2 only
    b) 2 and 3 only
    c) 2 only
    d) 1 only

    Shouldn’t the answer be A.. in d solns provided , it is mentioned as C.
    Someone pls clarify..

  • saraswathi

    answer is not A……..its C…….bcoz law as special privilege for sc/st’s…but in case of punishment all r equal……….

    • sakshi s


  • Jorge

    Test 29 – question 63: I think answer should be A and not D (both statements 1 and 2 are correct)

  • Jorge

    Test 30:

    Question 2: I don’t think it is correct to refer to the Buddh International Circuit as the “Buddhist” circuit….

    • sakshi s

      Some of these are corrected in the corrigendum pdf… refer to that..

      • Jorge

        ahhhh okay thanks

  • sakshi s

    How are employment and interest rates related in an economy?
    a) Generally higher interest rates impede a higher growth in employment numbers.
    b) Generally lower interest rates impede a higher growth in employment
    c) There is no relationship of interest rate and employment in an economy.
    d) Depending on the type of economy, any of the statements (a), (b) or (c) can be true.

    Can some1 pls explain this… Answer given is A

    • Jorge

      According to Phillips curve, there is an tradeoff (inverse relationship) between unemployment and inflation

      So higher interest rates => target inflation and bring it down => unemployment goes up (= higher growth in employment impeded) according to the relationship given by Phillips Curve
      (though the exact mechanism that causes the relationship seen by the Phillips Curve is not straightforward/universally accepted)

      • sakshi s

        Thanks.. 🙂

  • Jorge

    Test 32:

    Question 80: Should be D not C.
    Govt. grants are part of capital receipts not revenue receipts (the definition given in the solution is right, but not the classification of government grant as a recurring transfer)

  • Bashar

    In corrections it is given that distance between the latitudes keeps “decreasing” as one goes from equator to the poles. The linear distance between the latitudes increases slightly closer to the poles as compared to the equator as per GC leong. I think correction is wrong and the original explanation was right.

    • Bashar

      Someone please clarify

    • Jorge

      I think you are right – according to GC Leong distance between latitudes increases towards the poles


      Then its correction for GCL …Distance between two latitudes keeps decreases as one goes form eq to poles…Since its based on angles as you can observe that as per shape of the earth it gets flat and distance decreases.

      • Abdullah

        Distance between 2 latitudes is slightly above 69 miles near poles and slightly below 69 miles at the equator.
