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!

Sure. 

63. Question is what cause of thunder during a thunderstorm. NOT what causes a thunderstorm.

So what causes thunder? Thunder is caused by lightning. When a lightning bolt travels from the cloud to the ground it actually opens up a little hole in the air, called a channel. Once then light is gone the air collapses back in and creates a sound wave that we hear as thunder. The reason we see lightning before we hear thunder is because light travels faster than sound.

64. India is at 82.5 E. We are 5.5 hrs ahead of London. So, when it is 10 pm in India, it is 430 PM in London. 

Simply put, countries lying east of GMT are ahead in time. 

Now, for such questions, when you know where they are on the world map, it can be solved.
