General Awareness is the information that we gain gradually by reading newspapers, watching news, surfing the internet etc. However, when it comes to preparing yourself for a Competitive Exam, you require resources that can straightaway direct you to information that is exam relevant. If this information is presented in a quiz based format, then it becomes all the more useful to a Govt. job aspirant.
It is with this point of view that trainers providing the Best IBPS Coaching in Rohini have come up with the second edition of October 2018 GK Quizzes. These questions have been selected after a thorough analysis of the pattern of the latest Bank PO and Clerical Exams.
