      • There is no Need To Write any question Number as well as A/B or 1 or 2 .
        The place where you wrote your Answer has also been showing Only Question Number and You need to write on Any one of them . This is Not necessary or compulsory .Descriptive will only checked if You clear the Cutoff for objective one . This is the Normal thing , Majority of student don’t write A or B . Descriptive will be checked by Invigilators so they understand your Answer very well .So Chill and Focus on Upcoming exam . Lets don’t cry on the thing which cannot be changed or Modified for Now .
