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!

For question 19: 

It essentially wants us to mark out the statement that isincorrectwith respect to a PIL. 

When a PIL is filed, the basic premise is that the court must be careful to see that the petitioner is not doing it for personal gain, private profit or political or other considerations.

For Q:20

Nagpur lies precisely at the center of the country with the Zero Mile Marker which indicates the geographical center of India. 

So for this question, you have to know two facts: 

1. Nagpur is called zero centre

2. You have seen the location of major cities on Atlas.
