    • Prof. Swapnil Bisht April 26, 2022

      Hello, yumlam
      If you look at the table, you can see in the row name “Total” that we mentioned, “Any 6Q” and “Any 2Q” inside the brackets. This means that your question paper contains only 6 questions out of 7 which are mentioned in the blueprint which is extracted from the sample question papers released by CBSE on its official website.
