MAIN PAPER — AE
AE : AEROSPACE ENGINEERING.
Duration : Three Hours Maximum Marks :150
Read the following instructions carefully
This question paper contains 20 printed pages including pages for rough work. Please check all pages
and report discrepancy, if any.
Write your registration number, your name and name of the examination centre at the specified
locations on the right half of the ORS.
Using HB pencil, darken the appropriate bubble under each digit of your registration number and the
letters corresponding to your paper code.
All the questions in this question paper are of objective type.
Questions must be answered on Objective Response Sheet (ORS) by darkening the appropriate
bubble (marked A, B, C, D) using HB pencil against the question number on the left hand side of the
ORS. Each question has only one correct answer. In case’you wish to change an answer, erase the
old answer completely. More than one answer bubbled against a question will be treated as a wrong
answer.
Questions 1 through 20 are I-mark questions and questions 21 through 85 are 2-mark questions.
Questions 71 through 73 is one set of common data questions, questions 74 and 75 is another pair of
common data questions. The question pairs (76, 77), (78, 79), (80, 81), (82, 83) and (84, 85) are
questions with linked answers. The answer to the second question of the above pairs will depend on
the answer to the first question of the pai. Ifthe first question in the linked pair is wrongly answered
or is un-attempted, then the answer to the second question in the pair will not be evaluated
Un-attempted questions will carry zero marks.
NEGATIVE MARKING: For Q.1 to Q.20, 0.25 mark will be deducted for each wrong answer. For
Q.21 to Q75, 0.5 mark will be deducted for each wrong answer, For the pairs of questions with
linked answers, there will be negative marks only for wrong answer to the first question. ie. for 0.76,
Q78, Q.80, Q.82 and Q.84, 0.5 mark will be deducted for each wrong answer. There is no negative
marking for Q.77, Q.79, Q.81, Q.83 and Q.85.
|. Calculator without data connectivity is allowed in the examination hall.
Charts, graph sheets and tables are NOT allowed in the examination hall
. Rough work can be done on the question paper itself, Additional blank pages are given at the end of
the question paper for rough work2008
