Why is Chemistry easy as compared to other sections in JEE Main 2020?

According to the JEE Main 2020 paper analysis shared by the students, Chemistry was the easiest as compared to the other two sections. One of the reasons is that Chemistry is more of a theory-based subject, while Mathematics and Physics both are practical subjects having application-based questions as well. So it is the nature of the subject that Chemistry can be easily attempted by candidates who studied thoroughly, but in Mathematics and Physics sections, one should know the essence of the question, applicable formulae, etc.
