We can only say Acaryaji has not commented in detail for these verses. He has included and given the purport of these verses in his bhAShya.

If we take into account AcAryaji's bhAShya words ' dRRiShTvA tu pANDavAnIkam (1.2) iti Arabhya. . .  one need not take verse of dhararitarAShTra but consider arjunA's verse 13.1 to make the count 700.

Still the position will be same. One verse not considered/commented by AcAryaji.

In Shri Guru Smriti,
