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

  • OR for that matter, why is a chemical engineer allowed to appear for the IFoS but not a doctor. :/
