    Bro as per analysis by mrunal and cross checked by me history portion (ancient and medieval) from TMH general studies guide has highest hit ratio for ancient and medieval history and to considerable extent for culture but downside is that history portion of that book is quite large and language is somewhat difficult so many people don't refer to it.
