Answer Keys are out ! So are the Corruption plans of HPPSC ! This is ridiculous thing that both the Answer keys are totally wrong. People here on the Website criticise me for taking on HPPSC again and again, I was criticized for exposing corruption in Interview of HPAS 2014 scam but I was totally right about the working of HPPSC. Are they so dumb that they can't even cross check the Answer keys ? In which Universe Sania Mirza got the Padam Vibhushan ? I mean this is height of stupidity, how can almost maximum answers can be wrong in both the exam ? How can a triangle have 26 within it when its a common sense that there are only 18 in it. The people who made answer keys were not only dumb but they were high on drugs.

So who will be responsible for this Stupidity ? Mr. K S Tomar and Company. Exactly they are responsible for this mess. Mr K S Tomar You need to resign. You can't produce an answer keys correctly, even a 10th Standard student will produce a genuine answer keys of this exam. K S Tomar and Company are useless, year after year they keep repeating anything controversial things. This is enough now You guys need to be dragged to court. Only then you will realize how does it feel when system works properly. On this occasion I want to repeat My famous quote " Corrupt officers leads the corruption plans."  They do have plans every year to bypass system and choose their men accordingly. I am always right when I say HPPSC is not corruption free body. Huge favoutism is a part of their plans. This is another plan.

Why HPPSC can't cross check the answer keys ? Is this a Joke ? This is not a Joke You are selecting Future Officers and this is not a school quiz where you just do anything you want to do. Do HPPSC have some accountability ? Do they have authentic Sources? Do they research ? Or Just they sit and do lame things and fill their pockets. I think they are Useless. Shame on HPPSC for their Stupidity. 

Now the problem is who will give them objections of So many of questions ? Everyone will send their own version of answers. What about the authenticity of the answers? It is supposed to be the job of commission to produce authentic answer keys after a long research and from authentic resources. But what they have done is sheer JOKE. Sheer stupidity. Useless people. 

I request all the candidates to Call HPPSC on a large scale and lets force them to re release answer keys because these keys are huge mess and totally wrong, and then we will ask for another revised version of answer keys. I request this so because this will help all, otherwise people will send objections according to their answers that will be totally controversial, (People will send various versions of answers according to their answers and will not send of those which are correct even if its wrong) so 1st call HPPSC on large scale to force them to re produce answer keys again and then revised answer keys. It will be beneficial for all. Otherwise I bet HPPSC will not correct all the possible answers and all will suffer So don't take it lightly. It will be also raised in Media too.  If HPPSC does not co operate then lets move to High Court HP for justice and I am sure Court will not only provide justice but will trash HPPSC. 

I would also request to call Chairman K S Tomar too, at least pta to chale ke Democracy bhi koi chhez hai. 


Phone No :


Sh. K.S. Tomar -  0177 - 2623793
Enquiry - 0177 - 2624313

Toll Free No. - 1800-180-8004

I have added the List of all the officers of HPPSC, call on these Numbers on large scale. They will have to re think and re produce the answer keys. Show them the power of Democracy. Its a request its beneficial for all. Otherwise Enjoy the JOKE of HPPSC and next exam ke tyari kro. All the best.

Add code - 0177 code before these numbers.



HPPSC Officail Phone Numbers

Important thing  : Share this post on Social Media, Facebook, facebook Groups, facebooks Pages, Twitter, Whatsapp and Everyone try to call HPPSC officers.

    4. Q-96. ans is 72.....six questions have one alternative, having 4 parts each........therefore 48+(6*4)=72

      Delete
  6. Series A and C are almost correct except a few discrepancies. Hope they'll take corrective measure soon. For series D question NO. 26 is question No. 1 in series A. So, you can check your score accordingly and share your score here. It'll be of great help to estimate the cutoffs.

  20. B series is totally wrong..

    ReplyDelete
  21. Are you Guys Crazy ? Counting your marks ? Don't count your chickens before they are hatched. Whole D series is incorrect. Total rubbish. Revised keys will change the scenario so wait but Do call HPPSC so that they reproduce answer keys after proper research and from Authentic sources. They are supposed to do RESEARCH and then clear the doubts regarding controversial questions but instead of this they have messed up whole thing. Do call HPPSC and ask to reproduce answer keys with genuine answers. Otherwise Sit home and start working on next Project. Or We have to move to HP High court to Scrap this whole exam this year.

  33. Series B and D are totally wrong, Khadubhai is right. We should all call on these number and ask them for revised answer keys

  34. No doubt!! when someone experienced(one who cleared UPSC exam but was detained by HPPSC in interview) told me to not to prepare for HPPSC and instead focus on UPSC as HPPSC is full of corruption and favoritism. key for series D is laughable.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Getting 194 gen. but i am dissapointed by the commission reluctance over this big exam. also previous mention post by khadubhai regarding interview marks scam, also i am not understanding why the psychology complex questions given high weightage ,which play crucial for selection ,something is wrong in the system. moreover HOW can a psc give wrong answers regarding such famous questions like that of human development index,IRNSS-1E,this is really shocking and worrying as it implies that the question paper and answer keys are not prepared as per the standards for a state public service commission .

  52. Hello Khadubhai I am getting 74.67 + 138 = 212.67 as per the key for Set B. But in paper 1 ques no 65 and 89 have been wrongly answered. And similarly in paper 2 ques no 48 and ques 64 is wrong in the key. If I consider these four questions in my marks then my total becomes 80 + 143.33 = 223.33

    In both cases am I qualified to write Mains (Gen Category)?

    1. I had d same series. My answer to Q48 of paper 2 was 47.94 so I choose 48. As for q64 my answer was 3:1 but I know dats wrong for sure. I calculated it again, it's 12:1. I think
      Syllog question is doubtful

    2. Oops sorry. D answer to yield question is 3:1.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You are eligible for mains don't worry... In series B I think syllogism question should be a) but answer given is b) and yield one should be 3:1....I think.

      Delete
    2. Thank Bruh. U calmed my nerves a bit. U r right yield one should be 3:1 for sure. U don't even need to calculate . it's obvious wheat production is 6 times d barley production but area under wheat cultivation is double to dat under barley.

      Delete
    3. bro be calm... Hope for the best.
      what about the syllogism question?? What was your answer? I according to me it should be a only?

      Delete
    4. Syllogism Correct Answer Will be : A and B both follows

      All Pencils are books. -> Some books are pencils. -> Some pencils are books. ( by Conversion A -> I and I -> I )
      Some Pens are pencils. -> Some pencils are pens. ( by Conversion I -> I )

      So we have :

      Some books are pencils.
      Some pencils are pens.

      from Both these we will get -> Some books are pens. also -> Some pens are books.

      So both the options (A) and (B) follows but in Question paper we have both A and B options Separately so this question needs to be scrapped or marks given to all because options are not correct.

      Delete
    5. With due respect Sir when we try to solve the question with Venn diagram... In one case there will be 2 intersecting small circles I.e some pens are pencils and then a bigger circle enclosing both the circles. ..for all pencils are books.... Which also makes all pens books.. Which makes statement 2 incorrect... But statement still holds..... Sir I may be wrong in this....

      Delete
    6. Sorry but you are doing it wrong, above explanation is correct with all possibilities with both A-I method and Venn Diagram Method.

      Delete
    7. All pens are books. So by Conversion -> Some books are pens. -> Some pens are books.

      Delete
    8. Okay sir thanks... For correcting me... Anyways if question is wrong then marks will be given to all... So it's a win win situation.... For everyone :-)

      Delete
  58. I think q 51 as per series b( the one having 6 mattresses) is wrong as per key. My answer is 86<=h<92 as I calculated d height to be 90 but as per d key and is 92 to 110

  59. Do they want to say that if u are wrong u can still be in ...and u have a great chance...such a smart administration we have...u r allowing people to pass though they dnt have the right knowledge.. Earlier must be the same case n so they are sitting at those positions...but this has to be changed..scrapping the exam would be a good thing bt they will again mske it a earning source n we still will have to suffer..n we should not compromise with option of having series C as a reference...this needs to be dealt with some serious action.Such things bring shame to the state administration and everything comes in doubt .

    General - 180 above
    OBC - 170 above
    SC - 155 above
    ST - 150 Above
    Exmen -140 above

    Be ready for the MAINS. I will not reply individually to all the comments, so even after revised keys scenario will not change drastically. After revised keys I see 5-7 Marks increase so prepare accordingly, rest depends upon HPPSC.

  70. What about the answer of The shop is closing down and selling ....... All the stocks.
    Can it be Out

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Selling OFF will be Right Answer.

      Delete
    2. Sir, As per Oxford, ‘close down’ means ‘to cease or cause to cease operations’ and when shop cease to operate, it intent is to clear all the goods whatever the prices it fetches. Appropriate world would be 'sell-out' because as per Oxford, selling out means completely selling what is left out. As the shop is ceasing its operations, it is selling out (what is left) all the stocks at reduced prices. So answer is ‘C’

      Delete
    3. You are right but as per My knowledge it will be SELL OFF because here 'close down' does not mean to permanently cease any Business So in that sense it will be SELL OFF, or in special case of shares, bonds, or commodities, especially one that causes a fall in price. But if business is ceased permanently then SELL OUT will be used. (the selling of an entire stock of something, especially tickets for an entertainment or sports event. or a sale of a business or company.) So this is the difference.

      - a sale of assets, typically at a low price, carried out in order to dispose of them rather than as normal trade.

      -a sale of an investment, such as shares in a company, that causes its value to fall

      -a sale of an unwanted business at a low price to encourage someone to buy it

      - an occasion when the price of goods in a shop or factory is reduced so they can be sold quickly

      A Good reference to it is also here :

    4. Sir I beg to differ here. Meaning of 'close down' is winding up, ceasing its operation. However, If we consider that the shop is closing down for the day/normal operation, would it sell the goods at reduced prices? I think no.

      It will sell the goods at reduced prices when it intends to cease its operations i.e. closing down.

    5. SELL OFF vs SELL OUT

      Sorry but you are not understanding a Fundamental difference between SELL OFF and SELL OUT. Key difference is SELL OFF is used for Stock Markets and Financial terms While SELL OUT is used in broader seance for Finance and Commerce. SELL OUT used when someone is selling Business or a part of a business. SELL OUT is mainly used with keywords like "Business", "Investment", "With Supply", "Film or Show" etc

      SELL OFF - is always used with a sale of shares, bonds, or commodities. (especially one that causes a fall in price)

      -a sale of assets, typically at a low price, carried out in order to dispose of them rather than as normal trade.

      SELL OUT is not used with a sale of shares, bonds, or commodities.

      Close down I know is winding up or cause to cease that is from normal or general English point of view but here in this sentence we have to take it from financial view so close down always not mean to wind up, here it does not mean that business is winding up completely, it only says shop is closing down but not permanently. Selling off Stocks always depends upon markets fluctuations and most of the times stocks are sold prematurely and that's why its different than a normal trade here.

      E.g. We are selling off all of our stock this week at reduced prices.

      I Know there are lot of confusions but there is minute difference while we use these both.

      In financial terminology I never read SELLING OUT of Stocks or Shares. Correct one is SELLING OFF stocks or Shares.

      You can also see the subtle difference between SELL OUT and SELL OFF here :

    1. Line Existed originally between British India and Afghanistan, after partition its true that most part of that line is between Pakistan and Afghanistan. But if You see the Indian Map, India Share border with Afghanistan although India don't control that part of the land practically but in our official maps India still holds border with Afghanistan. Although land is disputed but India still claims it.

  80. Question 85 series D
    criteria for granting admission. Dr Negi Has completed in Msc Statistics and PHD in maths with 80% marks in Msc Statistics. He completed 29 years of age as on 1-4-2016 and scored 60% marks in enterance test and can pay 20000....
    Now the criteria is he should not be more than 30 years of age as on 1-6-2016.
    Now according to my calculations Mr negi is 30 years and 2 months old as on 1-6-2016 ie above 30. so he should not get admission or the data is insufficient. Thus the correct answer should be D and not A.
    do you agree?
