Application of concepts: These questions test the application of the concepts and require computation as well as logical reasoning
4
Analysis and Synthesis questions: These questions test much deeper level of understanding. They require analytical skills and the skill to synthesize the results of the analysis.These questions can be one of the following two types
Common Data Questions: In these questions a passage is given followed by two or three independent questions which can be solved by analyzing the given data. Each question under this group will carry 2 marks.
Linked Answer Questions: Similar to the common data question, the problem statement is followed by two questions based on the problem statement.
