Difficulty level was medium, neither too easy nor too difficult.

Can anyone share outline of Q#4 and 6 ?

[QUOTE=Yousuf Aziz;1003264]Can anyone share outline of Q#4 and 6 ?[/QUOTE]

Q.4. US-Russian's stance on ISIS is same to eliminate it. Noth would take aggressive policies and its impact on middle east would be destructive due to waging wars. On the other hand, capitalism and communism stance would remain to its rival differences though.


Q.6. US-Indian's ties to sustain indian ocean security and establishment of US envolvement in South Asia. So that their bilateral ties compete the Maritime threats because most of the business markets of US is supposed to be at Asia, since Pakistan and other SAARC countries are carrying out import and exports. Moreover, In the eve of new ties of Trump, India and US would try to establish new security policies. So America is highly concernd to maintain security in Indian Ocean Region.

Please tell me if I miss the concept of question?
