    Competition is high as many of aspirants write brilliant answers here. So it is always a tough job for forumias sir to select bestest among the best.
    However, declaring one outstanding answer helps us learn from that answer and understanding our shortcomings. But, as sir is giving model answers, I feel that problem is also solved
