    6/10.. how to make more marks in these types of quizes

    1. Srishti

      Try elimination method. With this method you will easily eliminate 3 out of 5 options. And for the rest 2 options you need to have a strong command over the vocabulary. Read. Read. Read. Read. Read. That’s all can help you 🙂

      There are no shortcuts. You need to work on it.
