Do we lose marks if precis is less than 1/3? I know that we lose marks when its greater than 1/3 but not sure about the opposite?

No. Precis should convey the main idea. If the idea is conveyed in less than 1/3 words, it's fine in my opinion.

Second one was tough and lengthy both... Reading was too technical, objective portion was like Waqar Younas's and Wasim Akram's yorkers coming from round and around the wicket. Translation was doable, pair of the words 😷

Rest was easy but worth only 15 - 20 marks...

I opted IS COLONIAL MINDSET IMPEDING PAKISTAN'S PROGRESS.
lets hope it works, two fingers crossed.

Comprehension was quite straight forward, but i found the translation the most difficult. especially when i couldn't come up with the right word of AYYB, lol..dumb of me i know!

I titled precis, "activity for destruction". can it work people ?

This much short because of too many examples.
