There are certain places where i can be used. Check page no. 966 of exploring the world of English.

I used "She" one time instead of author. I dont know why I wrote this.Anyhow, title was little awkward "Beauty in Orokhee".:waiting

They didn't mentioned analogy type questions in the syllabus.
Secondly what about indirect speech.
It was a difficult paper as compared to previous ones.
Best of Luck

The easiest paper!
 
The easiest paper in css history. Repent over not appearing this time.
See the translation!
Common man thinks that the laws of country and indivisual freedom are opposit to each other. Apparently this does not seems wrong. Every law has some restrictions to citizens in different form. The more are the laws of a country the the higher are the collective restrictions. The indivisual liberty gets pressed due to more restrictions. In opposit to it, the circle of indivisual freem gets broader if the number of laws are reduced.

Paragraph

"what happend to john? " asked Helena to West. "he left the company" was the answer from West. "he asked me for a rise but I didnt give to him" said West. "why didnt you gave him rise?" inquired Helen. West replied "he was so lazy". Helen further asked "has he found another job?". "yes, he is working in a film company"answered West. Helen continued asking "what is his salary like?" "I think he earns quite alot" was the answer from West. "does he like the new job? " continued Helen. West responded " i dont know"



Correction would be respected. Best of luck to all who appeared!

"I", "we", these are first persons. Generally, they should be avoided while writing Precis. However, a precis written in first person is not wrong per se. There are varying opinions regarding this. For example, Richard Palmer, author of "Write in Style", mentions in his book that writing in first person is actually preferred in his opinion as it maintains clarity. Similarly, Exploring the World of English also allows writing precis in first person at least at one place.

That being said, it is always preferred to write precis in third person as this is the standard manner. Nonetheless, if the text is validly paraphrased and all the points have been inculcated, there are good chances that the examiner will not discard the precis solely on this rather disputed technical point.

in precis we can use "we" or "someone" or "some school of thought" or "the author" or "the describer" but never use "I"
