Questions related to SSC CPO

Have a question related to SSC CPO ?

Choosing basic math in class 10th will likely not affect your eligibility for most SSC exams, other state services exams, and UPSC as long as you meet the specific math requirement for the desired post.

Many SSC exams, like SSC CGL or CHSL, have a minimum educational qualification requirement that specifies a Bachelor's degree in any discipline. Math in 10th standard usually doesn't play a role in these exams.


Eligibility criteria for state services exams vary, but most focus on the educational qualification required for the specific post. Math from 10th might not be a factor.

UPSC Civil Services Exam (CSE) requires a Bachelor's degree. Math from 10th doesn't affect eligibility.

I hope it helps!

Hii There,

In this case, since you completed your graduation in 2022, you should mention the passing year as 2022 in your exam forms or SSC CPO application. The passing year refers to the year in which you completed your degree, not the year in which you cleared any backlog subjects.

I hope this answers your question.

Thanks

Correct Answer: has been sold


Solution : The correct choice is the third option.

Explanation: The phrase "the land has been sold" is in the present perfect tense. In the context of the passage, this tense is suitable because it conveys a connection between a past action (the sale of the land) and the present state (the land being managed by somebody in an office). The present perfect tense indicates relevance to the current situation.

So, the complete sentence would be: "Neither of the farmhouses is attached to a farm these days; the land has been sold and is managed by somebody in an office somewhere who has little interest in the village."

Correct Answer: transpiration


Solution : The correct option is transpiration.

Plant wilting is generally caused by excessive transpiration. Transpiration is the mechanism by which plants remove water vapour through tiny pores called stomata in their leaves. When transpiration rates surpass the plant's ability to absorb water from the soil via its roots, turgidity (the hardness of plant cells) is lost, resulting in wilting, in which the leaves and stems become limp and droop.

Correct Answer: Bhagta Parab


Solution : The correct option is Bhagta Parab.

Bhagta Parab is an important festival celebrated by the tribal communities in Jharkhand, particularly by the Oraon tribe. This festival is associated with the worship of the deity Marang Buru, who is considered to be the protector of the community. Bhagta Parab is observed to seek blessings for the well-being of the community, the fertility of the land, and the prosperity of the people.
