The Most Important Steps to Solving a SSC GD 2015 Question Paper with Answer

Every question paper published in the SSC GD 2015 question paper with answer exam includes a list of step-by-step instructions for how to solve one or more of the questions. These instructions are included on last page of the paper, and it is generally not possible to solve any question without following these instructions. But what if you do not read them? In this article, we will go over important steps that every student should take before submitting their answer for any given question.

To begin, it is important to note that these steps for solving a question cover only one of the possible ways to solve a question. There may be other methods of solving the same question that make use of different steps.

1) Read each section carefully before trying to solve the problem.

Every section in a question paper has about 6-8 questions (two for every topic). These questions cover different topics, and all topics in the paper have different sets of procedures from which you can choose one or more. As a student, it would be prudent to take time to read each section carefully. This practice will help in developing a clearer understanding of the different topics covered in the paper. A good way to do this is to read through each question from the previous section. Then check whether you understand any of it.

2) Decide which procedure or procedures you will use for the problem you are about to attempt.

While reading each of the section, you will be able to tell how well you know a particular topic. For example, if you noticed that there was only one question in a given topic that had more than five marks. Then it would be safe to assume that you know this topic really well. On the other hand, if there is more than one question in a given topic with more than six marks, then it is clear that you do not know this topic very well. This information can help you determine which procedure is best for you to use to solve the problem.

3) Read the question carefully.

The question may or may not include a diagram, but it will always include the following:

  1. The stem, which is one or more sentences that asks the core question of this problem. Some of these questions ask an opinion, while others ask a fact-based question; so read them carefully and decide how to proceed.
  2. The bolded words are the information that you need to answer the question. If no bolded words are included, it is safe to assume that there are no missing information or wrong facts in your answer. If bolded words are included, check your answer before proceeding further.
  3. The italicized words are modifiers that you need to take into consideration when answering the question. Some will ask you to count the number of nouns, adjectives or verbs in a sentence, while others will ask you to choose between two answers based on different modifiers.

4) Examine the stem and determine if it is a fact or opinion question.
For fact questions, follow these steps:
  1. Identify the subject by analyzing what is happening in your diagram. You can do this by determining what words and phrases describe the subject.
  2. Determine which items belong to one topic or another. This is usually determined by finding whatever is the biggest picture in your item from one topic. If it is the word “life”, then it belongs to a topic about life.
  3. Decide whether each item in a sentence belongs to just one topic or if there are two or more topics involved. For example, the word “life” was found in “animal life”, so this is a multi-topic answer and it is therefore necessary to break up the stem into two or more parts.
  4. Identify each topic (e.g. “trees”, “animals”) by finding which words and phrases are associated with that same topic in the diagram. For example, you would break up the stem from step (a) into two sections: one each for trees and animals.
  5. Identify each bolded word. This is the information that you need to answer the question.
  6. Determine which bolded words belong to one topic or another. This is done by finding which of these non-bolded words are associated with a given topic. For example, in “trees” there are two non-bolded words: “grow” and “slowly”. Since “slowly” is associated with trees and not the animal, we can determine that the bolded word “grow” belongs to this section.
  7. Answer each bolded words by determining which non-bolded words are associated with that given topic. For example, if your stem question was “Which of the following is incorrectly associated with trees?”, then you would have to identify any association between non-bolded words and the correct answer. You would also have to check off any incorrect answers before proceeding further.
5) Decide on what problem type is being tested in this question.

To answer a problem, you must first decide on what problem type it is. To do this, you have to analyze the bolded words in the stem together with the bolded words in the question. This determine whether this problem is either a “fact” or “opinion” question. If it is an “opinion” question, you will have to answer each bolded word by checking off what non-bolded words are associated with that particular topic.

6) Examine the question and determine what you know, what you don’t know, and what you can figure out.
  1. If you know the answer to a part of the question, then identify what bolded word is associated with that topic. This information should be enough for you to answer the question. For example, if you know that “animals” and “plants” are associated with animals and plants respectively. Then you have identified which bolded word is associated with these two topics. You can answer the question knowing these two topics.
  2. If you don’t know the answer to a part of the question, first determine what bolded words belong to one topic or another. This is done by finding which of these non-bolded words associated with a given topic. For example, in “trees” there are two non-bolded words: “grow” and “slowly”.
  3. If you can figure out what a bolded word means, then identify a topic that will include this meaning. Remember, if a bolded word belongs to a given topic, the other bolded words must also belong to the same topic.
7) Answer the question.

Initially, determine what bolded words belong to which topic. It can be done by finding which one of these non-bolded words is associated with a given topic. For example, “grow” is associated with “animals”, so it cannot be used as an answer for this opinion question. Since it belongs to a different category than the other bolded word “slowly”.

8) Check of the correct answers.

If the correct answer is the topic that you have identified, then you are done. You can then check off all other topics that are not included in the given answer. Then move on to the next question.

If more than one topic fits a given answer, then identify which of these topics is most likely to be associated with that answer. Remember, if a bolded word belongs to a given topic, all bolded words must also belong to it.

If you used the information that you did not know, then check off all topics that can possibly fit this enquiry. Check off all new information.

After answering each question, make sure that your essay has the following: an introduction (Introduction), four paragraph body (Body), and a conclusion (Conclusion). An Introduction is required in every essay. Your essay must have at least four paragraphs (Body). Paragraphs should be separated by page breaks [ ]. A conclusion is required in every essay.
