    Various coachings are claiming of 50-60% question in 2015 IAS Pre. were asked from there test series.Is that true Sir. We also want to join some authentic test series

    1. Yes correct, Nana sahib had 3 sons-Vishwas rao( died in 3rd BoP 1761),Madhav Rao and Narayan Rao.
      Moreover Madhav rao was not killed by Raghunath rao it was rather Narayan rao, he died because of TB.

  4. In question “With reference to the Pondicherry (Puducherry), consider the following statements”
    It was difficult to realise 1st two options as, Portuguese made their nearest settlement at San Thome near Pondicherry and dutch (expected) to be 2 nd made their settlements in Karaikal some where near pondicherry , and matter worsen if you have read Francois Martin (french) founded Pondicherry in 1673.
    But thanks to 3rd statement which helps to non history optional students.
