In order to successfully crack the General Knowledge section of a Competitive Exam, you must have a firm grip on Current Affairs (CA). CA questions framed in the exam are inextricably linked with contemporary national and international news events. On the face of it, it seems that cracking such questions should not be a difficult task. Yet, many students falter in answering them correctly because of inadequate understanding of the exam pattern.
Being the Centre for the Best IBPS Online Coaching Classes in the Country, we publish quality CA updates to fill this gap. Along with these updates, we also publish Weekly videos on our YouTube channel covering the most important news events. Apart from CA, videos covering excellent tips and tricks for the upcoming exams are also published on this channel.
Given below is a quiz based on important CA questions from the month of June this year. Take it as a quick test and check your score. Consider each question worth 1 mark. You need not worry about negative marking for now😊
