            Hi Anita
            Once again a humble request, upload questions separately.

            Q1.
            – Very good starting of the answer.
            – The discussion in the main body is general in nature.
            – It is repeating the statements of question rather than answering those statements in solid manner.
            – Main focus of the answer should be given on the fact that these reformers were not trying to force reforms in Indian society from European point of view but wanted to overhaul the society through rationale and informed discussion of Indian religious textbooks.
            – Therefore rather than just mentioning the reforms that these leaders bought, focus on the means and ways of those reforms and the idea behind that.

            Marks: 5.5

            Q2.
            – Good discussion.
            – You covered all the necessary points regarding India and SCO.
            – Overall decent attempt.
            – Work on your presentation skills and handwriting to make it readable.

            Marks: 6.5

            Q3.
            – Again a detailed discussion.
            – Everything has been covered in holistic manner.
            – Good way forward.
            – Keep it up.

            Marks: 7

            Q4.
            – While discussion is OK, but you missed a key requirement of the question: And if we fail to abstain from so called social sin, what would be the consequences?
            – Rest the answer is fine.

            Marks: 6

                            Hi Satvik
                            – In any issue related Central Asia, energy is an important issue which you failed to discuss.
                            – Otherwise, the overall discussion in India and SCO is quite good..
                            – But there was very little discussion on the challenges that India will have to face in SCO while furthering her interest.
                            – Very Good conclusion.

                                  – There are certain issues with the answer.
                                  -First, in any issue related Central Asia, energy is an important issue which you failed to discuss.
                                  – The overall discussion in India and SCO is general in nature.
                                  – There was no discussion on the challenges that India will have to face in SCO while furthering her interest.
                                  – Lackluster conclusion.
                                  -Otherwise good beginning of the answer

                                      – You covered the answer in limited space and that is commendable.
                                      – Rather than discussing those sins from Gandhi ji, use that space for discussion on various other types of social sins.
                                      – Give more examples in ethics answer.
                                      -Overall decent attempt.

                                                  – While your idea of dividing the reform movement into two ideologies or approach is commendable, but it lacks conviction.
                                                  – As mentioned in the model answer itself, the key words in the question are purify and rediscover. Therefore you have to base your answer on the fact that these reformers were not trying to force reforms in Indian society from European point of view but wanted to overhaul the society through rationale and informed discussion of Indian religious textbooks.
                                                  – Therefore just show how these reformers pursued the goal of purifying and rediscovering the Indian society. Its as simple as that.
                                                  – Effort in the answer is good.

                                                    – The only thing to improve here is to mention few social reformers and mention the work of these reformist leaders and what were the evils present in the Indian society at that time.
                                                    – Apart from that, very good answer. Keep it up.

                                                        – While discussion in the answer is OK, you should mention important Central Asian projects like TAPI, CASA (Central Asia-South Asia)-1000 electricity transmission projects etc to enhance your points.
                                                        – Challenges portion needs more strength. Right now it is too China centric.
                                                        – Better conclusion.

                                                          Hi Shivani
                                                          – Give a little more insight into SCO in the intro, like its formation, members etc.
                                                          – Good use of first flowchart. Contents in it are decent.
                                                          – You can do away with the flowchart regarding recent developments in SCO. That will give you ample space for other parts of the answer.
                                                          – You did not provide concerns regarding India and SCO and how to tackle those challenges.
                                                          – No Conclusion either.

                                                              Hi Kapisuhon
                                                              – In intro, discuss a bit about demographic dividend and positives arising out of it.
                                                              – The discussion on RADICALIZATION is not suited for the current answer and I dont see how this is affecting the employment of youth. Its the vice versa, instead.
                                                              – While you tried to focus on the issues or challenges in reaping the benefits of demographic dividend, but a lot of the important reasons have been left out. Refer the model answer and take cue from there.
                                                              – The way forward is decent and content is more or less good.
                                                              – Good conclusion.
                                                              – Work on the content of first part of the answer because that is the main aspect of the question.
