  1. Hemant, thanks for all the crisp notes. just a suggestion, instead of all the 100 questions, you can simply provide the headings of topics dealing with current with one liners about em. as for static, only heading will do or even if static is not a part of the compilations. we usually don't dwell much into static of test series coz from each page we can atleast create 20-30 mcqs. thanks again.
