I think they mean one studies US history only to find that half of the exam is related to contemporary issues related to US and are opinion based questions. One can prepare Current Affairs to pass US history according to this paper.

In my opinion, there is inconsistency with the paper pattern and this year it was more in favor of contemporary topics. Elections, Muslims' perceptions of US etc.

Merits are electoral college, proportional representation, presidential debates, primary elections etc.
Ammad your points are relevant and clear.

Default Merits of US presidential Election:

American presidential election system is known as American Electoral Collage system. Here are some merits I have gathered from various sources. I am sharing headings with all of you.

1) Maintenance of division of power
2) Highly accurate system with success rate of above 90%
3) Minority interests are ensured
4) Equal chances of winning for Urban and small town candidates
5) Stabilized Two party system- Democrats and republicans
6) Delegation of more powers to states to choose delegates
7) Maintenance of federal character of states
8) Elected president for all
9) Avoidance of recount- Minimizing chances of fraud
10) Candidate focus campaigns according to states

1. Division of powers and separation of powers are different to each other. Division of power can be national integration but you can not resemble it to the US constitution.

3. Minority interests are ensured in some cases not overall.

Still some important ponts are missing, though it is a good attempt.

Thank you for pointing out mistakes.
I think division of power is totally related here. From where I have studied, It was written on at least 4 sources and the material under the heading was totally related and justified.
About minority interests yes they are insured. I agree it is not insured entirely but it is better ensured than other kinds of systems. So, Point is relevant and one just need to write convincing material under the heading.

Yes I totally agree that many points are missing but I have included only those points which I thought are important. Also ten headings are more than enough because there were others part of the questions which were needed to be answered. Many headings can be added.
I had got email request to share these points that is why I have shared. Many have written it by relating it with 2016 election but In my opinion question was totally general. I have prepared notes of all questions of last exam and they are detailed ones. In these notes I have tried to relate the headings by giving examples from history. For example it is one of demerits of American Electoral Collage system that the favorite candidate of majority of Americans may not get elected. I have related it with 2016 election. I may have written name of heading a little wrong I accept but the material I have written under heading is pretty relevant.

I will try to share all here and like to get criticizing comments from you. Thank you.

-ideological transactions

-US president is the world's president
-Republican's transactions
-Son of the soil, "White man"
-Constitutional reformations
-Constructing Mexican wall
-New world order

+demerits of US elections to elect Donal Trump

-Racism, discrimnations btw white & black man
-Decline of democrates
-Russian hands in rigging (BBC report)
-Ban on 7 Muslim countries
-Anti-Muslim sentiments
-Modi ka yar (A big loophole)
-Media hype

+My analysis
-I love Donal Trump, because he is very funny. He is an actor, joker, werestler, businessman and above all he looks like Indian movie hero Goivinda. That is why I like him. His way of speaking is very convencing, though his anti-Muslim sentiments disliked by across the world & making him notorious president of the world.

Naveed Bhutto please assess my answer
I did not criticize you, but Istalahi naqkeed kiya hun mein. Human is to err, so we should try to help out one another dear
