Talking to the media persons, DrPreetiKudesia said that the team-members would discuss the proposed project with the Tamil Nadu Health Secretary and other officials at Chennai in a day or two. The proposed block was expected to be constructed in a span of two years even though the project period would be three years, she said. She pointed out that the World Bank was supporting the Tamil Nadu Health Systems Project. It provided soft loan to the Tamil Nadu Government for implementing various health projects. The World Bank had provided nearly 90 million US dollars for health care projects in 270 secondary level hospitals in the last five years and planned to provide a total assistance of 117 million US dollars for various health care projects in the next three years in Tamil Nadu. Dr. Kudesia said that her team had earlier visited several hospitals including Namakkal, Salem and Dharmapuri districts in the last few days and pointed out that the team had visited the first Medical College Hospital only in Tiruchi.

Why can’t the answer for Q3 be “descriptive” or “informative” ?
there is a grammetical mistek……
we dont use ‘about’ after ‘discuss ‘
The description for Passage 2 Q3 says, “it is a simple narration of FACTS.” but states that, it is not a FACTUAL passage. This is a self-contradictory.
Please explain, why it is not FACTUAL, but THEORETICAL. There is no theory explained in the passage. It is pure information.
Hey, made the correction. Updated the explanation as well. So now the question and explanation are in sync and you should not face any issue.
Can anyone explain why the third question answer is factual?. Factual actually means which is concrete and actual.
Hey Shreyansh, made the change. The explanation and answer for the question have been updated. Kindly have a look now.
Please correct the third answer although the explanation tells that factual is correct it highlights theoretical 🙂 Thanks
Hey Dibya, thanks a lot. Made the correction.
