    A question on Chemical weaponry and The Mother of all Bombs can be expected.
    As nerve agent Sarin used in Syria. Read what are other such agents?
    Also this awakens UPSC's love for NPT and Disarmament. So related issues, institutions must be read thoroughly.
    And that's +2 marks in Pre.
