The professor claimed that this year’s engineering students performed better because they put in more effort to get ready for the challenging exam conditions. She emphasised that none of them were found to have cheated. They even finished many of their tests early.
A solar eclipse happens when the moon passes between the sun and earth, obstructing the sun’s light and creating a shadow across the planet.
How can I view a solar eclipse?
Throughout addition to New Delhi, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Surat, Pune, Jaipur, Indore, Thane, Bhopal, Ludhiana, Agra, Chandigarh, Ujjain, Mathura, Porbandar, Gandhinagar, Silvasa, Surat, and Panaji will all be able to see the solar eclipse, which will last for one hour and forty-five minutes in India.

The solar eclipse won’t be visible at all in a number of northeastern cities and islands, including Aizawl, Dibrugarh, Imphal, Itanagar, Kohima, Silchar, and Andaman & Nicobar Island.
When will there be a solar eclipse?

How should one see a solar eclipse?
The best way to see the solar eclipse is with appropriate eye protection or through indirect viewing techniques rather than with the naked eye.
While a telescope, pinhole camera, or camera display can also be used to view the eclipse, indirect projection is among the safest methods. In the process, the camera display may sustain some damage.
The high-density light from the sun’s photosphere can permanently harm one’s retinas while viewing a solar eclipse up close.
