Lots of mistakes in Hindi paper
The General Hindi question paper conducted in the second shift of RO/ARO 2023 exam is full of mistakes. According to linguist Acharya Pt. Prithvinath Pandey, the question paper has been prepared without understanding the proper use of words. There has been incorrect use of symbols in the question paper of Series D General Hindi. Question number 20 is wrong and so is the answer option, because in this question one wrong sentence has been asked to be given, whereas in it two sentences are wrong. Question number 22 and the answer are completely wrong. In question 24, the word ‘bilkul’ is used, while ‘bilkul’ is a meaningless word, the meaningful and correct word is ‘bilkul’, which is an Arabic word. In question 28 the word ‘Avritivachak’ is visible, whereas it would be ‘Avritivachak’. Question 32 and the answer option are wrong, because it asks to select one correct word, whereas from the point of view of spelling, two answer options are correct. The interrogative sentence of question 37 itself is incorrect.
