              • Select Focus Group (SFG) is a small group of students who are selected by ForumIAS every year for coaching them to clear the UPSC Prelims Examination. Every single candidate selected and retained consistently in the group with Top ranks has cleared the Prelims examination in the past.
              • 100 Students will be selected for the Select Focus Group, through the SFG Entrance Test, who will be required to report at 7AM every day 6 days a week to write an hour-long test based on a pre-planned syllabus, followed by a discussion on the same. 
              • Candidates who are unable to make it to the SFG will be maintained in a Reserve List, who can also write the tests. 
              • Tests are conducted daily and results are provided within 8 hours of test with a Name and Rank list for candidates and parents to evaluate their daily performance.

              How it is not right ? What is your logic ?

              Because 73rd AA doesn't contain any provision regarding DPC. You can't even find any keywords related to District planning commission, it was only in 74th AA. 



              People who've set the question paper just picked a line from IGNOU course material without any background check to it.

              https://legislative.gov.in/constitution-seventy-fourth-amendment-act-1992 


              Check yourself DPC provision exists only in 74th, not 73rd.

              Brother, the use of 73rd and 74rth act words are often used together.

              Cant we say that they have set up DPCs ? Yes it is a true statement. You don’t mark a statement wrong because of this.

              Brother, the term 73rd and 74rth Amendment Act itself is a phrase in itself. Please don’t mark such questions  because of this reason. If it is said that Rajinder Nagar and Patel Nagar have become coaching hubs for IAS, don’t mark it wrong because coaching s are there in Rajinder nagar , but not in Patel Nagar. Get my point ?

              4.3k views
              @TwoFace Please don't compare apples and oranges. Coaching hub in rajinder nagar is not a fact. It is based on a subjective interpretation that involves a "larger picture" 
              Moreover, if something is quoted often together doesn't justify anything. 



              Never mind, there's no point arguing. Let's put this to an end.

              Yes, there seems some error here as well. I guess the source for this must've been this LTCG document
