Questions from Current Affairs will feature on almost all competitive exams that are lined up in the next few months. In order to crack these questions, you need to follow a methodical approach. Such an approach involves screening the vast sea of information and memorizing that which is relevant from the exam perspective.

Being the centre for Best Bank PO Coaching in Delhi / NCR, we follow this approach at all our branches and in our Online and Pen Drive Courses. Thus, we keep publishing General Knowledge quizzes comprising expected exam questions. The Jan 2020 quiz containing 30 questions has been given below.
