Instructions for 25 Mock MCQs for UPSC: Set No.30

  • Timelimit: 30 minutes. 2 Marks for correct answer; -0.66 marks for wrong answer.
  • Mitron, my [T25] series contains 25 Mock MCQ primarily aimed at UPSC IAS/IPS Civil Service exam aspirants.
  • I usually dont give direct answer below the MCQs but indirect hints. Because, then you’ve to read the MCQ again & apply logical reasoning skills. This will improve your mental faculties compared to a scenario where direct answers are spoon-fed. having said that, if you want to learn some background theory and the correct answer, you may visit my playlist at Unacademy.
  • This 30th set focuses mainly on Indian Polity and Constitution MCQs that were asked in the UPSC CDS-ii Exam 2018, BiharPCS Prelims-2018 and GPSC-DySO-2018 which was conducted in period of November December 2018.
  • While some of these questions may appear rather too easy for Civil Services IAS/IPS but they provide mental exercise & revision of Polity factoids nonetheless. So, don’t have any megalomania that “I should not solve polity MCQs from lower exams because I’m too intelligent for it!”
  • So far I’ve done 30 sets x 25 questions each = 750 MCQs. Let’s see if I can cross 1000 before UPSC Prelims-2019.
