UPSC Previous Year Questions: CSP 2021

One cannot place less emphasis on the fact as to how important it is to solve questions asked by UPSC Previously. In fact, UPSC tends to repeat from its own stock, verbatim. 

This thread, shall be solely dedicated for posting questions asked in CSP & CAPF.

I shall be posting questions here on a daily basis. Urge you all to answer these in all seriousness. Shoot doubts if you have any, wrt solving any question. 

Remember the idea is to solve them, again. Reading questions and solutions is NOT sufficient. 

Cheers!

68. In the context of Indian economy, consider the following pairs: 


      Term                                        Most Appropriate description


1. Melt down                                     Fall in stock prices


2. Recession                                       Fall in growth rate


3. Slow down                                     Fall in GDP


Which of the pairs given above is/are correctly matched? 


a) 1 only


b) 2 and 3 only


c) 1 and 3 only


d) 1,2 and 3

I had option D in mind,as recession is defined by negative growth rate for two consecutive quarters,i.e.fall in growth rate.

could you please clear my confusion?

Because slowdown is not a fall in GDP. It is option 3 which is wrong, thus you are left with 1 & 2 - which is not an option. So the most appropriate answer is 1 only. 

Recession - you are right.

Maitreya buddha question I did correct in 2017 due to random search or wiki during last 10 days before exam...does that mean to continue with such random searches till exam comprising books revision?

I would suggestnotto devote a large part of your day to random searches. Because there's no end it. You must be having a schedule right ? Whenever you're on forum, do the surfing, refer to Factoids thread etc. All that will stay with you and help you eliminate options. 

It's essential to be thorough with basics because the serious candidates do not go wrong there.
