sir tsd ci si voy karwa do.. jaldi
8/10 There is a thing, after solving MCQs, for quite a while, from one source like Unacademy or IASBaba or any other, you get accustomed to how they design questions and your score increases, like you hack around MCQs, e.g. most of the times in unacademy answers are "All of above", or, in IASBaba, if there is a ministry mentioned in a question for a policy, and asked whether statement is correct, almost always, it's incorrect ministry mentioned. So, you learn to guess the answers smartly, instead of, actually, knowing the answer. My question is whether it is sustainable?? Because you don't get to practice a pattern from actual question paper makers, i.e., UPSC?

I think the intent & honesty of the candidate matters here. If the person answering the question thinks that he is smart enough to pass the UPSC pre after scoring high in these MCQs by applying these tricks he/she befooling oneself. According to me these questions are designed in such a manner that it shouldn't be solved from the perspective of getting more marks rather from the point of view of gaining knowledge about the topic pertaining to which the question is being asked.
