For GATE CSE 2022, 3 Volumes:

There are many valuable comments when a question or its answer is being discussed, and these comments most of the time provide a great deal of assistance in understanding a question or its answer and the concept behind the question as well. So is there a way to add those "key" comments as "hints or special points" alongside answers? It might be helpful while practicing. If including these items increases the book's page count, consider including (if possible) a link to such special points.

@Abhrajyoti00 Are you suggesting to sort the comments by votes, filter the ones above say 10 votes and then select the top 1 or 2 for each selected best answer? We don't have valuable comments under the question right?

@Hira Thakur No. NILEIT is the 5th one in the list.

The reason for considering these comments is that: 

1) A comment highlights some key term present in the question, and that specific key term plays a pivotal role in determining the correct way to get to the answer, and 

2) A comment explains the solution or part of a solution in a different way than the posted solution.

If it (adding comments as the key or special point in GO pdf) ever comes into consideration, then, from my perspective, a comment should be chosen in such a way that we get to understand the process of obtaining a solution rather than choosing an alternative solution (as a comment) itself.

A comment might have the most votes, average votes, or low votes, but the question is whether it is helping in understanding some key term of the question or key idea to resolve the problem so that it can serve the purpose of being a special point for that particular question or answer for the given problem.

The reason may vary from person to person, but the goal should be the same: to present some special or key points along with the answer so that maximum knowledge can be gained while solving a specific question so that we can save time searching for terms or searching for other ways to quickly and efficiently resolve questions.

@Arjun Sir, I don't think sorting comments with votes will be of much help. Instead, we can keep GO PDF as it is. Anyhow we can open the question on the website with the links provided and read the comments. We can't be sure enough which comment is 'helpful' because it might be helpful for some and not helpful for others. Also, it might happen that the comment is very recent and didn't get many votes but is great. Thus, I think we don't need to make any changes. It is better as it is now.
