What Must a Quality Prelims Test Have?

A quality mock test wiill highlight your shortcomings in all the areas.

We at Civilsdaily understand the nuances of setting a paper. Through five cases explaining five questions, we’ll try to give you an idea about the varied difficulty level of prelims questions.

These questions have been taken from the first test of Nikaalo Prelims All India Open Mock Test 2022

CASE 1 – Easiest but the Toughest

Sometimes we find the correct answer very easily without reconsideration, but when we look back at the key we realise that it was a blunder.

Ques. Which of the following is a violation of Fundamental Rights

a. Not paying minimum wages

b. Banning of a book

c. Banning of loudspeakers after 9 pm.

d. Banning a speech

Correct answer- A

In our country, there are millions of people who are underprivileged and deprived. They may be subjected to exploitation by their fellow human beings. One such form of exploitation in our country has been begar or forced labor without payment. Another closely related form of exploitation is buying and selling of human beings and using them as slaves. Not paying minimum wages is a kind of exploitation.

CASE 2: Relating names and use common sense

A lot of times you can solve the questions by relating or breaking the term asked.

AmbiTAG was recently seen in the news, What is AmbiTAG

a. It is a device to collect soil information for farmers

b. It is a device that records real-time ambient temperature during the transportation of perishable products, vaccines, and even body organs and blood

c. It is used for providing weather-related information in High Altitude areas

d. None of the above

Correct answer: B

IIT Ropar in (Punjab) has developed a first of-its-kind IoT device AmbiTag that records real-time ambient temperature during the transportation of perishable products, vaccines, and even body organs and blood. AmbiTag continuously records the temperature of its immediate surroundings from -40 to +80 degrees in any time zone for a full 90 days on a single charge. The device helps know whether that particular item transported from anywhere in the world is still usable or perished because of temperature variation.

CASE 3: Are you done with ncerts?

We can not deny the ncerts. Every year we get basic questions from ncerts. You can find them here as well

Which of the following statements with regards to the term ‘Republic’ is/are correct?
1. Every democratic country is also a de facto republic.
2. In Presidential Government the Head of the State is indirectly elected while in a Republic, the Head of the State is directly elected.
Select the correct answer from the codes given below:

a. 1 only

b. 2 only

c. Both 1 and 2

d. Neither 1 nor 2

Correct answer: 1 only

Both Statements are Incorrect: A democratic polity can be classified into two categories — monarchy and republic. A republic also means two more things: one, vesting of political sovereignty in the people and not in a single individual ; second, the absence of any privileged class and hence all public offices being opened to every citizen. There are many democratic countries which have Monarchs as their Head of the State hence they are Democracy but not Republic. Example Britain. In Republics, the head of the State is elected through either be direct or indirect election. Ex. India is republic country in which head of state is elected indirectly and USA is Presidential Government in which the Head of the State is directly elected.

CASE 4: Going international.

International collaboration and aid in our schemes and policies are relevant. If you ever read about them, know that the issue is of critical importance for the government and society.

Ques. With reference to Atal Bhujal Yojana, consider the following statements:

  1. It is a Centrally Sponsored Scheme with funding pattern of 50:50 between Government of India and states.
  2. This scheme is approved by the World Bank.

Which of the following statements given above is/are correct?

a. 1 only

b. 2 only

c. Both 1 and 2

d. Neither 1 nor 2

Correct answer: 2 only

Here the Government of India’s collaboration with World Bank makes it important. Half of the financial contribution is from the World Bank in this initiative.

Students must not ignore the contribution of international institutions especially if it is of such overwhelming nature.

CASE 5: Core of the core

You should be able to remember the bare minimum. There is no other way in such questions. You either know them or you don’t.
