Hello Vignesh, I am silent reader of Unacademy and I found that you always gave a quality answers to each and every questions asked before the video starting. I also want to give answers of the questions though I have some knowledge about questions but lack in the middle because of little knowledge. Can you please help me how to give answers to these questions?means what should I do before attempting it?
Hi Rahul, Assuming that you have some prior knowledge about the question, you can spend some 5 to 10 minutes to gather all the necessary points relating to the question and just start writing. That's all :) But you should try to reduce the time for recollection in each answer. But Keep writing and reviewing consistently :)
