General Science Questions for Railways and SSC Exams – Part 01

Dear Aspirants, it has been observed in previous year question papers of SSC and Railway exams, that in General Awareness section, most of the questions come from General Science. It includes questions from Physics, Chemistry and Biology, pertaining to class 6th to 10th. The questions are generally easy and if approached in a systematic manner, will help immensely in getting a good score. You may brush up your basic concepts from various sources but it will be incomplete if you do not practice questions after that. For this reason, we have started the series of General Science Questions for Railway and SSC Exams to help you practice variety of questions. So, without further ado, let us start with  General Science Questions Part 01 whose answer key is provided in the end-
