After the publication of our book, it has come to our notice that there has been some controversies regarding a few questions for which different publications in the same segment has offered answers different from that in our book. Therefore we think that it would be beneficial for the students appearing for AIPGME to have a consensus opinion on the same. We are giving answers to a few questions from Anatomy, Medicine, O&G, Anesthesia, Forensic medicine and Pharmacology. A few other questions from pediatrics and surgery will be published later on. Please note that we have done our best to ensure maximum accuracy in the answers. We would still advice student discretion in making the final call.
