COURSE : VIJETA (JP)
DATE : 13-05-2012 DURATION : 1 HR. SUBJECT : MATHEMATICS MAX. MARKS : 55

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
All questions are compulsory.
The question paper consists of 17 questions divided into three sections A, B and C. Section A comprises
of 07 questions of one mark each, section B comprises of 06 questions of four marks each and section
C comprises of 04 questions of six marks each.
All questions in Section A are to be answered in one word, one sentence or as per the exact requirement
of the question.

There is step marking.

There is no overall choice. However, internal choice has been provided in 02 questions of four marks each
and 03 questions of six marks each. You have to attempt only one of the alternatives in all such questions.
Use of calculators is not permitted. You may ask for logarithmic tables, if required.
