    Geography is the subject which requires a lot of intensive study and hence much of its difficulty lies in memorizing the data, be it Physical Geography or Human Geography or Biogeography…. however, this is very useful in order to test one’s preparedness! I am greatly thankful for such an overwhelming content!

    With Best wishes,
