Impact of digital technology as reliable source of input for rational decision making is a debatable issue. Critically evaluate with suitable example. 


How you attempted it in such haste. It says impact being debated. And, then puts critically evaluate and examples too in question header. 

Which paper did this question come in? πŸ˜‚ I don't even remember writing an answer for a question like this fml

A general doubt


In GS answers ,I answered the core aspect and maybe add another dimension either social/economic in most question that's the maximum dimensions I must have presented

Some model answers suggest all PESTEL dimensions , will that approach fetch more marks even when questions were too specific ?

it is to be remembered that folks preparing model answers take use of internet, spend hours researching, discuss and make answers working in group.


I strongly feel such facilities are not legally available to people writing the actual exam. further pestel has her own limitations. for instance it is difficult to write about problem of sexual harrasment at workplace dimension in question of blue led or talk about climate change in question related to terrorism. it is likewise difficult to talk about art and culture dimension in question of cbi, as it is equally difficult to mention about space science dimension in question of nhrc.

Don't ever compare to people making model answers. they possess the luxuries we don't and ever won't.

Sometimes the excess dimensions looks forced and affects the brevity of the answer

Retrospectively, I think I'm being too hard on my self. We wrote ~110 answers and hundreds of mock answers before that. Just about having 7/11 minutes to think of a question and absolutely no time to go back to think about a question after one test is over. Pretty natural imo πŸ˜‚ especially general questions.

I read a very beautiful quote in a game called "duet" which was :-

"Nothing else matters just this moment".

After writing upsc cse main I realised the quote wasn't essentially romantic

Gs4 is as such designed to be "The Great Headache" . the way it's created, it will continue to haunt cse aspirants year after year. Whether the question is of time management or about cent percent assurance of having written decent answer, aspirants will never get a clear breakthrough to these questions no matter how hard they try. why? because the paper, it's syllabus, it's flavour everything is designed in such manner. It's so subjective so fluid so unique paper, in many ways it's worthy of being termed as a "Humble Tyrant"  :)

people are able to recall their points only when they know what they have written which usually happens when one is able to manage time well. if one has written those answers in "great time deficit situation" it's not possible to recall much possibly because in matters of exigency it's far better to act than to think(hannah arendt).
