SSC being all about the General Studies, we have decided to provide you a series where you will get material related to all the subjects coming under GS. This can prove to be a weapon in your preparation. If you manage to get good marks in Tier I then your efforts might ease at Tier II. General Studies is something that you can prepare gradually. If you think that you can do it in a go then it is really tough. So it is better if you go step by step. So here we go with POLITY today. Try to remember facts and you will get a good grip on the GS and we will post some questions tomorrow in the morning related to this post.
