      Question 1)

      Seismic waves: –
      seismic waves are energy waves which travel through earth because of earthquakes or many other explosions.

      These seismic waves are generated from earth interior through waves.(P waves, S waves)

      There are three types of seismic waves
      1) Primary waves (p waves)
      2)Secondary waves (s waves)
      3)Surface waves

      P waves:-
      These waves travel through solids, liquids and air . These waves transfer energy through compression. P waves transfer energy parallel to direction of wave.These are fastest of all three waves

      S waves:-
      These waves can only travel through solid. They cannot travel through liquid and air.S waves transfer energy perpendicular to the direction of wave.these waves have larger amplitude so are more destructive in nature.

      Surface waves:-
      These waves occur when source of earthquake is close to earth surface.Surface waves have very high amplitude and are most destructive of all.

      Sesimologists use the direction and difference in arrival time of s-wave and p-wave to determine direction of source of earthquake.

      Understanding structure of earth:–
      when two rocks or plates rub each other they do not move smoothly they catch each other and push each other and rock break after huge pressure and causes earthquakes. The spot where rock break underground and energy is released is called focus of earthquake.The pace above the focus is called epicenter of earthquake. All earthquakes take place in lithosphere.

      P- waves and s-waves are generated at the focus where energy is released.when these waves travel through surface they contact with surface rocks and generate new set of waves called surface waves.The velocity of waves changes as they travel through materials with different densities (high density,less volume).

      Thus seismic waves helped in understanding the structure of earth by measuring speed,velocity and density of waves.

      1. Hi Sagar D

        – Language is good and easy.

      1. Brother ,correct me if I m wrong ,,, I think, current collegium is opaque , only judges decide whom to promote , n second time recommendations are binding on president . In this way it can lead to nepotism , favoritism, within judiciary itself, also they are not in ambit of RTI .in this way this collegium system ultimately harm judiciary supremacy itself in long run .

      2. Collegium system turned out to be a case of “Judicial Exclusivity” rather than Judicial Primacy. It was not transparent, lacked accountability and came out as judicial aristocracy where the Chief Justice of India and the collegium became the initiator and appointer of judges, and the President of India was made only a formal approver in the process.

      1. Hi Puru
        – There are certain issues with the answer.
        – First of all, give reasons why youth think of govt services in such a high esteem. Your reasons are good but their language needs improvement.
        – Secondly, in the second part of the answer, discussion seemed more in the discussion of job creation and civil services reform and missed the direction of the question.
        – Lastly the question asked what will you do to change this scenario. hence give your way forward.
        – Points like focus on highlighting the the good work done by various officers, officers who have let go of their perks should be highlighted, private sector importance should be highlighted, Public – Private sector linkages can be augmented in order to establish equivalence, Regular cooling off periods where civil servants are required to work outside the government so they are more appreciative of what needs to be done etc.

      1. Hi Isha
        – Good intro.
        – You dont have to discuss the criticism of collegium system overall.
        – Just mention how collegium system affects judicial primacy and then move onto NJAC discussion.
        – Dont take the names of the judges. In fact avoid taking names in political answers.
        – Again like collegium, in NJAC discussion stick to the point of judicial primacy. Dont go after points like transfer of judges and justice karnan etc.
        – Good conclusion in the answer.
        – Read the model answer for better understanding.

      1. Hi Puru
        – Presentation needs work. Give some space after a paragraph and after change of points
        – What is judicial primacy?
        – Attempt lacks appeal. Points need to be purposeful. They are too general right now.
        – Mention clearly how NJAC and Collegium afrfects judicial primacy. The sole focus of the discussion should be this.

        Marks: 4/10

      1. Hi Puru
        – The intro is bit big.
        -Divide it into two parts. One before discussion on ARC and another for the discussion on ARC.
        – While the first part and the last part of the answer is quite decent, but you missed to discuss the middle part which should have dealt with the issues and concerns against bad banks.
        – Good way forward.

      1. Hi GK
        – What is judicial primacy?
        – You dont have to mention overall shortcomings of collegium system. Instead you have to mention how collegium and NJAC systems are antithesis to judicial primacy. hence points like pending vacancies need not be mentioned in this context.
        – What are the steps to make judicial primacy stronger?

        Marks: 4/10

        – Way forward is decent
