I did try to solve the nuclear factor question and the India-Pakistan relation by using at-least some language of IR to differentiate it from current affairs paper. Lets hope the checker is bit lenient.

It would be good If you touched NSG, dual policy of non-Proliferation regime, IAEA concerns...

The comclusion would be "Proliferation begets proliferation" as Muhammad Elbaradei, former IAEA chief often comments.

On India Pakistan part of the question: Arms race, cbms, Deterrence, escalation, Nuclear zero, Mutual Vulnerability, Mutual Assured Destruction and total war were the key terms from theory

In nuclear factor question I focused more on the how the nuclear issue has influenced the international politics by giving example of Indo-US alignment in context of strategic agreement. US concerns about the nuclear proliferation vis-a-vis Iran, North Korea. Indian alignment with west to contain china through concession of strategic agreement. Pakistan desire to maintain nuclear parity and contain India pushing it to china. I wonder if it can be considered right?

On this one I focused more on claims and counterclaims of each other about terrorism on part of other. Kashmir issue as freedom fighters or terrorists? Pakistan harboring terrorists or not? India supporting terrorism via Afghanistan or not? Linking this debtate to global perspective of terrorism

It's absolutely right! Theory in applied IR is just relating it with the present. So in this case 'Key Terms' of Peace & War were to be related with a potential conflict.

Rest you have justified the answer

Good one! You don't need to worry about this paper. That is what it was all about. Just for making it a theoritical, one could criticize the global terrorism with "Critical Theory of Terrorism" and lack of definitional agreement. And exploitation of the term terrorist - using against the minority specially Muslims. That is what India is doing as a state sponsor of terrorism, snd yet benefitted post 9/11 by Bush rhetoric of Islamic Terrorism.

Then another dimension of theory was assymetrical warfare through proxies, the separatist movements funded by Indian intel, limited war chances, Strategic Culture of Hindu Fascism could also be linked.
