Anyone contacting SSC for Question number 77? I have written a grievance to regional director and tried calling. Please try and do your best too, in this competition even one mark can make or break your final post.
Maths me que 94 was right or wrong? Height and distance wala..
If SSC considers all the likely English representations we sent, it is going to be big surge in marks for ones who got it right. We found at least 4-5 definite ones and another 5 doubtful cases. I just wish at end we had some way to find out which challenges were accepted and key altered. No option but to wait and watch now.
Because we have all submitted the obvious corrections, I urge the ones who are submitting now to submit the ones which are 50:50. We can maximize our chances to alter the key. The obvious ones we have covered already.

QID : 3097
Here in localities A, B, C, E sales of English is more than sales of Hindi news paper and in locality D sale of Hindi is more than sale of English. So in locality A B C E difference in sale of Hindi and English news papers is going to be negative and in locality D it is going to be positive. But the answer mentioned in response sheet will come only if we take modulus of the difference without considering the affect of sign. However it is nowhere mentioned in question that we need to consider the modulus. So since such assumptions can not be made in exam the answer given in response will not satisfy all the conditions of the question.
