Neutrino oscillation experiments use heavy nuclear targets to achieve sufficient interaction rates. Nuclear effects are introduced in the experimental environment by the use of these targets and need to be quantified as they add to the systematic errors. In the low energy region (around 1 GeV) multinucleon events are also present along with Quasi Elastic (QE) and Delta interactions. Therefore if these multinucleon events are not incorporated in the data set properly, we end up with an

In our work, we have illustrated the importance of incorporation of multinucleon events for the reduction of systematic errors in physics predictions by DUNE-Near Detector (ND). To achieve this we have presented the event distribution ratio of Ar/C, Ar/Ar, and C/C as a function of squared four-momentum transfer by employing different nuclear models. This analysis recommends the addition of 2p2h or multinucleon events in the event sample and promotes model with Random Phase Approximations (RPA) effect for the analysis of the event sample to overcome or reduce the systematic uncertainties.
