    Admin, I really apprecaite your hardwork in uploading GK in question & answer format. Keep up the good work…! We all have benefitted it from your initiative. Of late you have deactivated the option of conversion the said question & answer in to pdf which is really sad…due to our hectic schedule we are not in a postion to read the articles daily..once downloaded i used to save the same & read wenever i have time..i was so impressed by the quality of questions that i have recommended your website to many of my friends. Now that you have disabled the option it is really creating the problem for me. So it is a sincere request to activate the option at your earliest.
