I have a doubt for the language paper. 

In the hindi passage, the questions that follow are of 12 marks each.. How much do we have to elaborate in that? 12 marks seem a lot, but the model solutions that I am going through have hardly written more than three sentences.. 

This is my first mains so I am clueless.

@Kraijen And many questions can be verbatim answered from the passage itself. Should we use our own words or just use the language given in passage?

@Prothom Alo write in rough first and then put it in the main page, that will do the trick. Check the sample booklet from upsc website.

Yes a, an, the are separate words.
