UPSC Mains Paper Analysis: General Studies Paper Two
Most of the questions in paper two were expected ones as those were related to the recent developments and news
There were two general studies papers on the second day of the UPSC Mains. General Studies paper two was on Indian Polity, International Relations and Social Justice. Most of the questions in paper two were expected ones as those were related to the recent developments and news. For example, the question on the Vice President being the ex-official chairperson of Rajya Sabha. Then there were two questions about elections, one about settling election disputes and the other about model code of conduct. The three questions on International Relations were also expected as one of it was on India-Srilanka relations, related to how India bailed out Srilanka in the recent economic crisis. The other one was on BIMSTEC and one on I2U2 the New Eastern Quad which was again expected because the meeting took place around the time when the papers were being set.
There were also questions about inflation and unemployment hurting the vulnerable sections and national commission on backward classes which received constitutional status on the basis of 102 constitution amendment act a few years back. The question about Indian president and French president elected recently was interesting because the French president was also elected recently around the time Indian president was elected, sometime in July and as per the books, there is some similarities between the two.
