off of 60% in each of the two sections:
Now talking about the sub sections of the

The Technical part also consisted of 4
Now ellaborating the paper, first it is a
long brain and computer adaptation exercise, of nearly four hours.
Ist Section: 18Qs in Logical Reasoning and

with full vigour in the sections.
