List of optional query

Does anyone have any idea, how list of optionals is decided by UPSC. I am confused as to why Forest Service exam does not have "geography" as optional, while it has chemistry, mathematics etc. [won't knowledge of geography be more useful in the service than knowledge of say "mechanical engineering"] (I have no grudge against engineers, it is just a doubt!)

Thanks in advance

Nothing can be done to change, at least till you pass the exam. Nobody has time and resources amid this chakravuyh. All the best ]
