  • Ajit Singh

    Where do you get these questions from (not particularly this quiz, in general all current affairs quizzes)?
    Sometimes I find many questions useless. Could anyone from GK today help me in deciding on which topics are really relevant. Every time I take your quiz I find myself absolutely awestruck in some questions. Though I really appreciate your efforts and thank you from bottom of my heart for providing useful material to people at large.
    Just one help, as an UPSC aspirant, does one really have to go into such details like film actors who passed away, all sports related events (means what you all ask in quizzes)?
    Kindly help!
    Thanks in anticipation!
