Keeping a track of latest Current Affairs may become a tedious exercise, if you depend on a newspaper or a magazine. In general, students face difficulty in being regular newspaper readers, whereas the problem with a current affairs magazine is the sheer volume of information it has. In such a scenario, General Awareness section of a Banking or SSC exam becomes a tough nut to crack.

But if you go through quizzes updated by Vidya Guru, the Institute for Best SSC Online Coaching, this won’t be the case. These quizzes are created specifically from the perspective of Competitive Exams. The latest quiz has been given below for your benefit.
