Questions in examination can be taken from a pool of 20, may be 30 every time but not the exact 10 always.

Since all questions have maximum of 2 options, if it is wrong, for the next attempt other answer is true definitely.

Very thankful to Prof.Vaidhyanathan, for making the videos so eloquent and informative.

He has packed the course with qualitative information but we would have been thrown some quantitative information too!
