NDA Exam 2020 English Paper Fully Solved

NDA 1 2020 and NDA 2 2020 was conducted on 6th Sep 2020 as a common exam. The English section consisted of the total 200 marks with 10 questions for each of the five sections, namely, Spotting Errors, Antonyms, Synonyms, Ordering of Words in a Sentence and Fill in the Blanks. Following are in detail graphical representation of the NDA English Section analysis.

The uniqueness for this years’ NDA 1 & 2 Exams was the number of sections which were only 5 in number. In previous years, the number of sections were more than this year. In NDA 1 & 2 2020 Exams, no questions came from the topics like Idioms & Phrases, Ordering of Sentences, Cloze Test and Comprehension. Another major surprise for NDA 1 & 2 2020 exams was the new naming of the section for ‘Fill in the Blanks’ as ‘Preposition’. While many may get confused, though the question pattern for this section was in the form of the ‘Fill in the Blanks’, yet the questions came in totality from the “Appropriate Prepositions’ chapter of the English Grammar, in which the blanks needed to be filled in with the appropriate prepositions. As opposed to the previous years’ questions in the ‘Fill in the Blanks’ topic, which cumulatively tested a candidate’s knowledge of the tenses, appropriate prepositions, subject verb agreement, phrasal verbs and right usage of vocabulary, this year the ‘Preposition’ part of the English section in NDA aimed to test a candidate’s knowledge of appropriate prepositions and their usage in a sentence.

Main Topic No. of Questions
Spotting Errors 10
Antonyms 10
Synonyms 10
Ordering of Words in a Sentence 10
Fill in the Blanks (Preposition) 10
TOTAL 50

As per the difficulty level, the question paper for the English section of the GAT in NDA 1 & 2 2020 Exams, was quite easier to attempt, owing to the lesser number of topics. For a candidate with a good and strong knowledge of grammar and clear grammatical concepts, the questions, especially from the ‘Spotting Errors’ topic, were a cakewalk. A very basic to medium level of knowledge for Vocabulary is needed for a candidate to solve questions from ‘Antonyms’ and ‘Synonyms’. Candidates who applied basic and tricky shortcuts for ‘Ordering of Words’ cracked the questions very easily. The part which was quite not-very-easy-to-solve was the section named ‘Preposition’ as the ones who have skipped the chapter of ‘Appropriate Prepositions’ found it almost at a loss to attempt.

The English section for NDA 1 & 2 2020 Exams was overall easy for those who studied the English curriculum thoroughly and acquired strong knowledge of both English grammar and vocabulary. But students who skipped either of the vocabulary or the grammar part of the NDA English syllabus and concentrated mainly on the rest of the topics faced a major difficulty in solving the English section of the GAT paper.
