  1. as a giver of gate 2018 ece paper… how can you say that it was easy than other years?
    have you appeared for gate 2018?
    where most of the top institutions and academy is saying this years paper was indeed the toughest and most numerical based question…….
    soo sir i beg to differ your analysis… and i suggest you wait for the result and then i think your analysis will be correct…
