Obviously there are notes in cases from sr.nos. 3 onwards in Aaroh or Avroh that are not employed in whole Raag. It is possible that a note not emplyed in Aaroh may be used in Avroh and vice-versa. In some cases the rendering becomes Vakra (with a turn around that note). This is indicated in Jati. e.g. Audhav-Sampurna Vakra and so on.
Poorvang is the lower half of the octave i.e. S r G M and Uttarang  is the upper half of the Octave i.e. P D N S'.
