      • you did your research so nicely and I can see that it’s very difficult to find such sort of questions which are exam oriented and having a strong relevance to such type of EXAMS……THANKS

        • Thanks and really it took time for me to prepare all these questions, as i have to maintain the information correct and accurate. Lets see if someone point out any mistakes in my questions so that i can rectify it.

  3. Sir, I found correction needed for question no 10 answer.

    10. “Rongker” is a winter festival it observe in 5 Arkoi(5 January ) and 5 Thang-Thang(5 February).
    Rongker is derived from two Karbi words Rong= Village, Ker or Karkli= Worship.

    • Thanks for Pointing it out, and you are absolutely correct as you know better about your tribe/culture but sir also as far as i am concern the festival doesn’t have any specific time for the celebration but it is observed at the beginning of the New Year (month of April). And it is also given in the Wikipedia source . So i will make some changes in the description of the Answer specifying time period of the celebration of your festival and Please reply if i am wrong and more further changes are required so that i can give more information about your Tribe/Culture.
      Thank you !

  4. Rongker is not celebrated mostly in the months of april but is celebrated in the months of february and sometimes on january….

  5. I heard the keot and kaibart are both different. You can’t write them by using a slash (/ )mark. Please re- check questions number 15.

    • Yes Mam, you are absolutely correct. Although both of them come under same category but they are not completely same and it will be unfair to use slash(/) symbol in the description for the Q.No 15 and so i will replace the slash(/) symbol with (and). Thanks for pointing it out and please reply if more further changes are required.

  6. All ur efforts will be of grt help to us..have u thought of adding the current affairs of Assam section also..? I m lukin forward towards it.
