    Sometimes numerical values work a lot, other times they don't..There is no predefined formula how and what is the way to frame a good objective question. Idea is to "enrich" the site and its readers, if they find it suitable. Out of some 8500 questions in this blog, around 500 questions are based upon numerical values. The weightage is given if they have some national importance…

    My site is just an “appetizer” and not the “Main Course”. The exams are always in favor of those who are voracious readers. These values cannot be crammed. But if you really enjoy the current affairs, these values don’t irk you at all.
