Standard college/university exam practice is different sentences for each.
So, two sentences - one for each word.

In dono words ko 1 sentence mein use karna hai ya separate sentences for each?

Same sentence only. Thats the challenge. I saw these answers in PYQ book or somewhere else(not able to find now) but they used these 2 words in a single sentence

that's disha publication book who's link i've mentioned above. I guess source of confusion is how they've given the solution.

Me! As usual couldn't utilise the gap efficiently. Health-wise no issues but Hostage of indiscipline, procrastination since long. My optional is Maths, 30-40% pending yet so just reading it like GS!

Does anyone else feel like that the actual content one ends up using in the exam, the only things that we needed to know to write good answers (and what is possible to execute in that time crunch), is actually less? 
And throughout the year we just end up doing-reading a lot of unnecessary stuff?

@Villanelle this is exactly what I was feeling after every GS paper and especially after Ethics. I mugged up the entire Red book for ethics but ended up using very few things because of the time crunch. I think it’s because of less practice? Really disappointed in myself. Really good points, facts and examples keep popping in my head on various questions and I keep kicking myself for writing subpar content there.

Yes! 
That's why one of my friend once mentioned, "whatever content you've, that's enough to clear this exam(GS portion). Trust whatever you've and faltu fomo ni regarding value addition"

If I had this realisation earlier I would’ve gotten away with much lesser amount of studies and might’ve actually had a life for past 1-2 years 💁🏻‍♀️😂

Guys, in Precis, we have to write in those small boxes right? so words like is, was, the, to, where etc.. will also be counted?

You're not the only one who didn't have a life.

yes, one word per box. Yes all है हैं हां is am are will be single words and will be counted as separate. 

Full stops and other punctuation are not separate words. If confusion, ssc cgl tier 3 YouTube videos dekh lo. wahan bhi डिब्बों में likhna hota hai
