Normally the General Knowledge questions can be classified into two categories Static GK and Dynamic GK.

  • Static GK questions are questions from topics that cannot be changed like the facts from History, Geography, and some ‘superlatives‘ like First, Largest, etc.
  • The Dynamic GK questions are those questions that change with time like Current Affairs, Business Affairs, Politics, etc. These are the major topics to be covered by the exam aspirants. Reading a business newspaper daily will make the aspirants easily become aware of the latest updates that can have a higher possibility of questions in the exam.

  • One can expect some questions from Counties, Capitals and Currencies. Headquarters of some International Organizations is another crucial topic from which questions appears. Learn the venues that have been selected to host the Olympics, Commonwealth Games, FIFA world cup and ICC World Cup.
  • Anything related to India’s recent position in the ranking is significant. Try to know the ranking of India in various surveys.
  • Read about Oscar winners and Nobel laureates, especially in the past year. Also, have thorough knowledge about the recent initiatives taken by the Indian Government.
