    Same problem I too faced and was fed up anyone clearing this convincingly, so learnt by heart all tiger reserves/ National parks, yes ALL, all wetlands, biosphere reserves too...

    Total GI tags are around 226. So yes not easy but see if can focus state wise, and u will sail thru it, like Kerala has 20 GI tags.. learn all from ur state, then just try linking up if have much time or else do give a read, may come handy in eliminating atleast !!

    And I love muggging up, literally can mug up anything and everything, yes I need some connecting points, that's it. Domt worry, start, u will do it !
