  1. The last question is not appropriate.
    The question should be “In which month of the year Garia puja is performed or celebrated?”
    Even Garia is spelled incorrectly in the question.

    And the correct answer is “Baishakh” as we welcome the god Garia in the first month of the year on the very first day and the festival is celebrated for a week.

    Thank you.
