Details matter a lot! That is why you must focus on all the essential information while doing ADPO preparation for the general knowledge section.

Analysis is the Key to Success

Download and analysis the ADPO question papers. Form a table with the years and divide it into multiple topics of general knowledge such as history, geography, polity, economy, and more.
