**Note:**This article is just based on the observation of previous examination papers only. Students are advised to learn whole syllabus to gain maximum marks in the examination. Neither the author nor the IndiaStudyChannel take any responsibility for the loss of any due to this article.

it is used to get marks but many of the students are reading based on chapter weitage . if your site is publishing on weitage many students will be passed.
