Defence Exams General English 2022

The Defence Exams are conducted by the Central Armed Police Forces (CAPFs) in India. The Defence Services Selection Board (DSSB) conducts the exams for CAPF cadets who wish to join the Army, Air Force and Navy.

The question papers are prepared by DSSB and distributed among various exam centres across India in advance of each examination day.

Question No. 1

What is the main idea of this passage?

A student should learn English in order to pass his or her exams.

It is important for students to study hard if they want to get good grades in their exams.

The teacher must teach them well so that they can understand what they are being taught and learn faster than before.

Question No. 2

Answer the question:

What do you think is the most important quality that a good leader should have?

How can you be a better leader in your family and at school?

Question No. 3

The passage is about the importance of a healthy diet. It's important to eat a variety of foods in order to get all the nutrients you need. Eating a variety of foods will help you get all the nutrients you need, so it's best not to restrict yourself to just one type of food or meal plan.

Question No. 4

In this question, the word "reasonable" is used to mean:

acceptable. The students are expected to be reasonable in their demands and expectations.

logical. The sentence suggests that there is a connection between the two ideas (that of being flexible and that of being responsible). This connection can be described as logical because it is based on facts or evidence rather than opinion or emotion.

sensible. A sensible person would not expect others to give up everything for their sake; instead they would try their best to compromise with others when necessary so that everyone gets what they want out of life

Question No. 5

Answer: The word 'favourite' is used as an adjective to describe something that a person likes or prefers to do, but not necessarily a particular person or thing. For example, you could say "I like reading books" or "I'm not very good at tennis". In this case, favourite means favorite among all possible things (e.g., sports).


The takeaway from this paper is that there are some important points to keep in mind when answering questions:

Don't rush through the questions, but don't spend too much time on any individual one either.

Read each question carefully and make sure you understand it before you start writing down answers. If you don't understand a question, ask yourself what it means and then reread it until your confusion has cleared up or try asking someone else for help if necessary!

Make sure all of your answers are relevant to the topic being discussed (and also make sure they're not too long).


The questions in this paper were quite difficult and the students found it hard to answer them. The question on idioms was especially tricky because not many people know these phrases by heart. However, we hope that you have done well in this exam!
