  • SMART Solutions will be provided so that you learn how to approach a question in the exam, even if you don’t have the full knowledge of the topic given.
Examples

Let’s see how smart solution can be effective through UPSC PRELIMS QUESTION OF 2018.

Q 1: Consider the following statements:

In the first Lok Sabha, the single largest party in the opposition was the Swatantra Party.

In the Lok Sabha, a “Leader of the Opposition” was recognised for the first time in 1969.

In the Lok Sabha, if a party does not have a minimum of 75 members, its leader cannot be recognized as the Leader of the Opposition.

Which of the statements given above is/are correct?

(a) 1 and 3 only                       (b) 2 only

(c) 2 and 3 only                       (d) 1, 2 and 3

Ans: (b)

Explanation:

Leader of the Opposition

  • Statement 1 is incorrect:
    • 1952 elections The Congress had won 364 out of 489 Lok Sabha seats in the first ever general election held in India. Its vote share was 45 per cent.
    • The CPI was the second party with just 16 seats.The Swatantra Party was an Indian liberal conservative political party that existed from 1959 to 1974.
  • Statement 2 is correct:
    • Leader of opposition was recognized for the first time in 1969.
    • The leader of Opposition in the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha were accorded statutory recognition in 1977. They get same salaries and allowances that are equivalent to a Cabinet minister – paid by the govt.
  • Statement 3 is incorrect:
    • In each House of Parliament, there is the ‘Leader of the Opposition’. The leader of the largest Opposition party having not less than one-tenth seats of the total strength of the House is recognized as the leader of the Opposition in that House.

Total 10% seat means

  • In Lok Sabha 10% of 543 = 55 (In 3rd statement,it says "minimum of 75 members"),hence its incorrect.
  • In Rajya Sabha 10 % of 245 =25

Smart Solution

  • In the first reading mosts of the candidates will find that statement 1 & 2 are very factual in nature and hard to solve. In this case they skip the question and move on to the next one.
  • But, If candidate reads the question further he/she will realize that statement 3 was in news (Congress got only 44 seats in last Lok Sabha elections) and is straight away wrong. In the Lok Sabha, if a party does not have a minimum of 10% (55) members of the total strength (543), its leader cannot be recognized as the Leader of the Opposition.
  • Conclusion: Even if you have no idea about statement 1 and 2 and are updated with the current affairs you can straight away eliminate options (a), (c), and (d) and can mark option '(b)' as the correct answer.

FAQ related Test Series

What is the programme all about?

The Prelims Paper requires an aspirant to choose the correct answer from the codes given and generally the statements and codes are confusing in nature rather than providing an easy access to the correct answer.

Further the negative marking is present, thus an aspirant cannot just circle in OMR sheet by a fluke.

The Pattern of Prelims paper is also changing from being conceptual to current affairs to being factual. Similarly the weightage of subjects change every year.

Thus according to this year Prelims Paper, we have come up with revamped format of Prelims Test Series which covers Sub-sectional Tests + Sectional Tests + CSAT Tests + Current Affairs Tests + Mock tests.
