Brother, I contacted PPSC today and they said that besides email you should send an application to secretary ppsc through courier. I have forwarded my mail and courier both. In my application I pointed out State Religion,URL, Mount Adam and Largest fresh water lake.

Also the question about wonder of the worlds
the options given included "light house of alexandria"
it is included in "the list of classic or anicent wonders of the world"
there was nothing mentioned like ancient or classic in the question
it should be none of these in that regard

By volume it is Lake Baikal and by area it is Lake Superior. Reward should be given for this question too.
when he asks largest, it means by area. one more question often being asked in PPSC papers, "largest" river of the world, so its Amazon, but sometimes he asks "longest" river of the world, its Nile.

Brother, my stance is just that there was ambiguity in this question and every one should be given reward for it. For example, if someone asks us that what is the largest country of the world, then we would definitely inquire by area or by population and the answer would be Russia and China respectively. Same is the case with this question that it was unclear. One cannot just assume that largest means by area.

I emailed this and will also send by post tomorrow:

Discrepancies in the General Knowledge Paper of Combined Competitive Examination (CCE) 2017 held on 02-01-2018.


1.URL stands for ……? This question was confusing because both correct options i.e. Universal Resource Locator and Uniform Resource Locator were given there. Both of them are correct according to the leading dictionaries:
Oxford: https://www.oxfordlearnersdictionari...on/english/url
Webster: https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/URL

2.Which country has Lira currency? None of the given options was correct. Because Italy has been using Euro currency for 16 years, it had abandoned Lira in 2002. The correct answers (i.e.Turkey or Malta) were not given in the options.
Ref: https://www.britannica.com/topic/lira-currency

3.Where is Mount Adam? This question was also ambiguous because four mountain peaks with the name of “Mount Adams”, not “Mount Adam” are in USA and one peak is in New Zealand. While “Adam’s Peak” or “Mount Adam” is in Sri Lanka.
Ref: https://www.thefreedictionary.com/

4.What is the Largest Freshwater Lake in the world? This question was also vague because two of the given options were correct i.e. Lake Baikal (By Volume) and Lake Superior (By Area).
Ref: https://www.worldatlas.com/articles/...the-world.html
Ref: http://law2.umkc.edu/faculty/project...riorfacts.html

5.Which country has Hinduism as state religion? None of the given options was correct. Because Nepal who was the only Hindu state in the world earlier, had become a secular state by Article 4 of its Consitution of 2015.
Ref: http://www.lawcommission.gov.np/en/d...6/01/10272.pdf
