firstly THANK YOU so much for helping me out in completing the class 6 ncert. I witnessed a strange thing that we have studied this earlier but the I am unable to recall anything like this... also, i wanted to ask you to help me out in one more thing , can we have quiz or list of mcq, which are directly framed from this book as in a single video or something , that will mark a revision of the entire book to !!! maybe its me or the fact that i just started my preparation for UPSC CSE 2018 , it took me 5 days to complete this book.
