I am putting here the keys along with the questions numbers and the test series of ours where the questions have come. We have hundreds of online subscribers and all of them have access to the test series as well as our notes. There are many straight questions from our test series. In Polity all questions figure in our tests. It is no exaggeration one can verify from the online test series which all our subscribers have access. 

There are questions from the following portions.

a. Polity – 19 questions.

b. History -11 questions.

c. Indian economy – 17 questions.

d. Geography- 15 questions.

e. Science – 12 questions.

f. Environment and Biodiversity- 16 questions.

There are no questions from the current affairs. There are no questions from the International affairs. There is reduction of questions from Modern India. Lots of questions have come from Science, environment and Biodiversity may be because the IFS aspirants also write preliminary. No questions have come from Government programs. (Social assistance)

On the whole even though there are patterned questions which figure in the GS paper, one cannot afford to omit any portions. 

There are many expected questions from the following areas. 

Demographic Dividend, Powers of Attorney general, PAC, NDC, Bank rate , RBI powers, Inflation, Open market mechanism, priority sector lending, Ilbert Bill, Annie Besant, Quit India, Simon Commission, Basic tenets of Buddhism and Jainism. Amendments provisions, Directive principles of state, Preamble, Capital account, khariff crops etc. 

On the whole it is an easy paper.
