• hi,
it went through almost all the MCQ's...Had good time solving the question's and answer are almost known to my capacity...But please don't mind for finding a loophole...frankly speaking, your questions are direct which need not have to put lot of efforts...Your pattern of questions are easily known...The questions where you have put "all the above" confirms that option D having all the above is correct...So if you could change that pattern, it will rack their brain...
