Hello Shefali,
-Your introduction is poor…The question is asking about construction of toilets and perception of people…and changing the mind set…your introduction is only confined to construction…and missed the other two aspects…

-Points in problems and ways to change mindset are good…

-There is no conclusion…way forward is of only one line…

Overall, points in main body are good…but need to work in intro and conclusion….
Good attempt…keep writing…will improve for sure…

Hello Anita,
-Its a humble request that kindly upload answers one by one and not all the answers together…
-Your answer is not on proper sheet…at least draw line on both edges of the page as a margin, so that it will be visible to us clearly….

Also the quality of resolution is poor…and hence reviewing accordingly…

Q 1.
-Introduction seems to be okay…
-Presentation is poor…and not at all attractive…need to work on handwriting as well asap…
-However, there is no clarity in points and points lack justification…
-Too general ideas in answer…bring completeness in points…like movement caused lava eruption which is rich in various nutrients, and thus providing support to plants life as well as humans or other living organisms…so we come to know there is liquid at the bottom of crust…further, earth quake, mountain building at the edges of continental boundaries, folding, faulting etc….these points need to be presented with justification…

Overall an average answer…keep practicing…will improve for sure….

Nice attempt…keep writing…
Marks awarded: 3.5/10

Q. 2
Poor introduction…poor presentation…
Toilet or sanitation is of personal business rather part of socio-economic infrastructure…incomplete idea in intro…
-Use of colloquial language makes the point irrelevant or of lesser importance…
-Also ideas are not arranged in logical order…
-You have no where mentioned about the perception…why there is such perception among people for not using toilet…? and also very few points in changing mindsets…
Overall, an average presentation….keep practicing…will improve for sure…

Refer our model answer or other best answer reviewed for better clarity….

Q. 3
-poor introduction…poor presentation…poor content…poor language…
-Sentences are incomplete…points are not arranged in logical order…
-Overall, below average presentation with too much of general ideas…
-Keep practicing…will improve for sure…

Refer our model answer or other best answer reviewed and observe the pattern of presentation….

Q. 4
-Language is too poor…
-There is no concrete point in your answer…Poor presentation with haphazard points no logical arrangements, and incomplete sentences…

Observe the pattern of writing answer and how it should be presented…mere writing will not serve the purpose…

Refer our model answer or other best answer reviewed for better clarity….

Hello Sandeep,
-Few suggestion:
-One line should not contain more than five or six words…
-write within the margin provided…otherwise what is the purpose of separating with the margin on page…
———————————————————————————————————————-
-Some of the ideas in introduction is not required…like no need to mention who proposed this theory…no need to mention the names of major and minor plates…they are like killing your words…
-Also no need to mention about divergent and convergent plates in much details…

-Sandeep, answer is not at par with the question asked…I think you didn’t get the question properly…

The answer should focus more on our observations from plate tectonics and subsequent behaviour…rather explaining about the theoretical aspects…

Hello Prafull,
-The answer exceeds the word limit…we need to be within 150 words…
-Words should be written properly otherwise it conveys different meaning…its defecation and not defection…
-Introduction is too big…you took two para to introduce the topic…
-Points and ideas mentioned are very good…presentation and structure of the answer is also good…however, need to sync the points and maintain word limit…Have improved much from earlier answers…keep writing practice will make you shorten your length of sentences…
-Marks awarded: 6/10

What is meant by syncing points ? Should i create flow in points mentiomed or something else ?

Pritam Kumar
Guest

Hello Prafull, Sync is Synchronization of Points means reducing the word without change in meaning.
Flow of points should be there but at the same time we should adhere to the word limit. UPSC checks our expertise in writing many things in few words. However, this is a matter of practice, will sure happen. Keep writing…):

Hello Dhritiman,
-Introduction is poor …it should address the points or question properly in very short…means what actually has been asked in question and what you are going to present…introduction should show the direction of your answer….
-point 1 (1st page)….there is no justification…
-Neither language nor handwriting is understandable in point 2 (1st page)…
-Point 4 (1st page) incomplete sentence with incomplete ideas…
-Your way of presentation…poor language associated with incomplete ideas and poor handwriting…make this answer below average….there is no logical arrangement of ideas…No structure for answer….

-Observe the pattern how others used to write…and present their ideas….repeating the same mistakes again and again will not serve the purpose of writing….kindly consider my points seriously…

Hi Abhinav,
-Introduction seems to be okay…
-Mesosphere we find in atmosphere…the region of the earth’s atmosphere above the stratosphere and below the thermosphere, between about 50 and 80 km in altitude….and not below the earth’s crust…
-Diagram depict wrong idea…and this point is not relevant to the question asked…
-Your answer is not at par with the demand of the question…You missed to get the gist of the question…
-Abhinav, The answer should focus more on our observations from plate tectonics and subsequent behaviour…rather explaining about the theoretical aspects…

Thanks for your review sir… i will work on the points you have mentioned but sir in this question i have used the TERM MECHANICAL RIGIDITY:
According to it our Earth is divided into three layers: Lithosphere, Asthenosphere and below it Mesosphere.
For this i am attacking wikipedia link.
https://wiki.seg.org/wiki/Layers_of_the_Earth

Pritam Kumar

Hi Abhinav, as per the demand of the question we don’t need to furnish much detail about the mechanical aspects or theoretical aspects. Rather we need to focus on what we observed and are observing in the course of tectonic movements. I hope you might have got the clarity while reading my model answer. Don’t hesitate to ask if you stuck even if.

Hello Abhinav,
-Introduction talks that according to some experts, mere construction will not serve the purpose….But why…what are the reasons for it?…You can relate it to mindset, culture etc…in intro itself in short…
-Your point a, b, c on first page explains about the same idea…
-Too general points in suggestion…for changing the perception of people…
Overall, the answer is average one…more specificity in points required…

Good Attempt…will improve for sure…keep writing…

Hi Priyadarshi,
-Good flow in points….However, more focus needed towards people’s trend for not using toilet…people give reason to purity at home, culture, tradition…though orthodox…we need to show why there is such perception?

-You can also add points as a measure like…making people aware regarding health benefits of toilet use…shame for women going out…etc…if possible we can cite examples..like incident of Kanpur where a women denied to marry in the absence of toilet at her in-laws house…

The rest of the points are good and well mentioned…

Overall, good attempt…keep practicing…

Answer -3
Recently India launched GSAT-29 through its latest launch vehicle GSLV – Mark 3 . This satellite will cater the needs of communication requirements in far North East and Jammu-Kashmir region.
GSAT-29 is a geo-synchronous satellite which orbits in a elliptical manner around earth such that it covers those areas which are difficult to be reached through a geo-stationary satellite. Better digital connectivity will aid to the Digital India programme too.
The ku and ka bands used in this satellite are more powerful and will connect to remote areas . This successful launch ensures the success of GSLV-Mark 3 too as it is going to be used in Chandrayan -2 mission in 2019 . Later on it will be used in India’s manned space programme.
In this Digital Era , it is very important that how much a country is independent and successful in its space programmes. Till now India has been on the right track and this launch added to that only.

Pritam Kumar

Hello Hiddenwarrior,
-Please practice of sheet of paper…
-This answer has only 2 points….need to mention more features of GSAT 29 and more analyzing points in how it will connect the remote areas…
-The answer lacks in many respects…limited points, poor introduction…etc.
-This answer is average one overall, keep practicing…will improve for sure…

Hi Shivani,
-Introduction is poor…why do we need to talk about the continental drift and sea floor spreading theories…its irrelevant….and unnecessary killing word limit….
-Rather drawing flowchart of ideas, show the actual diagram of continental and oceanic plates…
-Reading your answer seem you lack conceptual clarity regarding the topic…the points mentioned are too general and are irrelevant to the requirement of this question…You haven’t answered what the question is asking…

Hello Shivani,
-Introductory para is incomplete…the question is asking about the toilet use…but neither your introductory para nor subsequent two paras talking about the toilet use…
-Points are mentioned in haphazard manner…Individual points starts with somewhere half idea and remains incomplete….like second page…acc to study by who and unicef…the points underneath are incomplete…
-Third page seems like you have done rough work…what you have mentioned in flow chart, you need to write in paragraph (in arranged form)….
-4th page…sanitation is everyone’s personal business…but we need to change their perception of using toilet rather using open space….
-No arranged ideas in conclusion as well….and poor conclusion…
Overall, its a below average answer which lack in many respects…content, arrangement, structure etc…

-My advise for you is that please don’t use shortcut for any words…write the words in complete form. for eg. Locatn…the same I advised yesterday also…
-3rd page…Don’t use down arrow…you can use bullets, arrows but connecting all the arrows together is not necessary…
-Conclusion could have been much better…
