Q.

I am in Class X. For Social Science, should we write only four or five points to 4-mark questions or should we describe each point? Will any mark be reduced for exceeding the word limit in English and Social Science?

If you read the question carefully, the answer lies within it. In many questions, the number of words or points to be written is specified. You could also identify the number of points to be written from the bifurcation of marks mentioned in the question. According to the pattern, half mark allotted for naming the point (what we call as side heading). Elaborating each point can easily earn one to two marks for you depending upon the type of question.
Do not waste your time in describing or writing detailed answer, if the question is just to define. You will not get more marks for writing such an elaborated answer. Marks are certainly not deducted for exceeding the word limit in Social Science. However, it recommended sticking to the word limit mentioned in the paper to complete the entire paper on time.

Aap class X hai? Aur itni lamba sentence liq dal te ho. Aap ko directly phd dena chayiye. Phir bhi. Jitna mark hai, utna point kafi hai. 4 marks hai to 4 point. Aap ko 100 se jyada mark to nahin milega.
