The ethics paper was always very applicative. This year, it had many elements of theory too. Questions that were asked were like Identify five ethical traits on which one can plot the performance of a civil servant. Justify their inclusion in the matrix, or Identify ten essential values that are needed to be an effective public servant- Describe the ways and means to prevent non-ethical behaviour in public servants. Then came the quote test for candidates where they had to justify some quotes like 

  1. “Every work has got to pass through hundreds of difficulties before succeeding. Those that persevere will see the light, sooner or later” – Swami Vivekananda 
  2. “We can never obtain peace in the outer world until and unless we obtain peace within ourselves” – Dalai Lama 
  3. “Life doesn’t make any sense without interdependence. We need each other, and the sooner we learn that it is better for us all” – Erik Erikson 

The major battle in Ethics paper or GS Paper 4 is always of containing the words of the answer to the limit. 

In case the candidates are successful in doing that they get to score good marks.
