The drop down menu of question numbers in GOAPS has question numbers from 1 to 65 for all papers except GG, XE and XL. For all papers other than GG, XE and XL, the first ten questions are GA, i.e, question numbers 1 to 10 are GA questions. The question numbers 11 to 65 in the drop down menu correspond to questions 1 to 55 in the question paper respectively. Thus, for example, question number 37 in the drop down menu has to be chosen if you want to challenge the answer of question number 27 in the subject part of the question paper PDF.

For GG, the first ten questions are from GA, i.e., question numbers 1 to 10 are GA questions. The question numbers 11 to 35 in the drop down menu correspond to questions 1 to 25 of the of the common section (Geology) in the question paper PDF. The question numbers 36 to 65 in the drop down menu correspond to questions 26 to 55 of the Optional Section I (Geology) in the question paper PDF. The question numbers 66 to 95 in the drop down menu correspond to questions 26 to 55 of the Optional Section II (Geophysics).

For XE, the questions in the question paper are arranged according to sections, i.e., first the GA section, then sections A to G. The drop down menu is for questions from 1 to 153. Note the following for the drop down menu:

Q. 1-10 correspond to GA
Q.11-21 correspond to XE-A
Q.22-43 correspond to XE-B
Q.44-65 correspond to XE-C
Q.66-87 correspond to XE-D
Q.88-109 correspond to XE-E
Q.110-131 correspond to XE-F
Q.132-153 correspond to XE-G

Thus, for example, question number 112 in the drop down menu corresponds to question 3 in XE-F paper.

For XL, the questions in the question paper are arranged according to sections, i.e., first the GA section, then sections H to M. The drop down menu is for questions from 1 to 125. Note the following for the drop down menu:

Q. 1-10 correspond to GA
Q.11-25 correspond to XL-H
Q.26-45 correspond to XL-I
Q.46-65 correspond to XL-J
Q.66-85 correspond to XL-K
Q.85-105 correspond to XL-L
