NDA II 2016 Mathematics

This test contains 120 question. Each question comprises four responses (answers). You need to select only ONE response for each question.

All questions carry equal marks.

Each question for which a wrong answer has been marked, one-third of the marks assigned to that question will be deducted as penalty.

If a candidate gives more than one answer, it will be treated as a wrong answer even if one of the given answers happens to be correct and there will be same penalty as above to
that question.

If a question is left blank, i.e., no answer is given by the candidate, there will be no penalty for that question.
