General Studies Doubts thread for Freshers/Newbies

This is a thread for newcomers/freshers who have doubts regarding any topic of General Studies papers. You can ask any static portion related doubts here. I am free for few months now. I will try to explain those things with my limited knowledge and friend's help.

ONLY FOR NEWBIES. Seniors already know everything. SILLY DOUBTS ALSO WELCOMED. DON'T FEAR OF WRONG QUESTIONS. Just ask any static topic doubt here.


I urge all other senior or experienced souls to contribute on any doubt. Also I request senior people not to discourage anyone asking simple or wrong doubts.


PS- Just a try to give back to forum which I took from here. Hopefully it revives some of its old glory and real purpose of such plateform. :)


Waiting for your doubt .. but only Syllabus Static topic related ones.. for other queries use other threads !

PS- Also available for same at telegram @Yo_Yo_Choti_Singh

  • What is the purpose of agro-climatic zoning
  • What is the purpose of agro-climatic zoning

    If you truly want answers try to google before posting such sweeping questions, posting specific questions would help all

  • What is the purpose of agro-climatic zoning

    If you truly want answers try to google before posting such sweeping questions, posting specific questions would help all
    i searched google but did not find a generic answer so asked here
  • Agro climatic zoning helps in
    Ecological land use
    Therefore higher productivity ,remuneration,inclusive growth s/m farmers and women and sc/St populations;lesser ecological damage like soil exhaustion deforestation GW recharge etc
    Better policy making açcc to landuse,

    It's a evidence based scientific way for planning for development.
  • You can also add lesser geographical inequality as coastal and agriculture regions sweep away all the benefits.....
  • What are the limitation of CPI over WPI in india

    I can think of 2 points -

    1) Scope - CPI reflects the consumer demand side of the economy(food, housing, clothing, misc like recreation) while WPI is more reflective of the producers side of the story (primary articles - both food and non food, minerals + fuel + manufacturing) - The scope of CPI items is limited via a vis WPI but it is useful for understanding how the average man is hit by policy changes.

    WPI is more useful to calculate changes in business cost of raw materials and designing trade policies. It also emphasizes more on manufacturing.

    2) Release of statistics - CPI is released only monthly - WPI is available weekly and monthly (weak limitation)

    I dont think this specific type of stuff will be asked. This is more appropriate for economics optional. But if anyone can add more points or correct me, that would be great.
  • @Yo_Yo_Choti_Singh sir pls tell how to approach for ethics and sources for it?? Also guide for gs 2 and gs 3.

  • I have read that cyclone travels from west to east under the trade wind and hence always hits the east coast. But last year a cyclone called ockhi hitted the Gujrat which is on west coast. How this phenomenon can be explained geographically?

    In equatorial/tropical/Monsoonal regions, due to shifting of ITCZ Hadley cell moves and thus conventional trade wind's direction changes and that affects cyclonic system's direction.


    Moreover around 20-25 degrees sometime cyclones come into influence of westerlies - e.g. Hurricanes around US east coast, and thus bends in such direction.

    So you have to consider such changes in traditional planetary wind patterns.

    Ncert+gc lenge for geo.. do multiple revisions.. that's only feasible solution IMO

    Eco k notes pkd lo kisi institute k jese vaji ya sriram etc k.. sb to cover khi nhi hoga ..But reasonable ho jata h.. baki newspaper pro regular

    Bouncer questions koi nhi pd k jata.. that's either common sense or tukka or leave type questions.. no solution for those IMO :)

  • What are the limitation of CPI over WPI in india

    Jyada to nhi pta but..

    Main limitation is AVAILABILITY , REGULARITY AND RELIABILITY OF DATA ...CPI is complex and difficult to count and ascertain.. but now as technology is developing these limitations are reducing thus govt shifting towards CPI.. :) bss itta hi pta h
