In most of the competitive examinations, only MCQ questions are asked. So, for getting ready for the competitive examinations, we have to practice for MCQs questions to solve. It strengthens the critical thinking and problem solving skills.

In future, if you want to prepare for competitive examination and to crack it, then you should more focus on the MCQ questions. Thus, from the board examinations point of view and competitive examinations point of view, you should practice more on multiple choice questions.

Thus, let’s solve these MCQs Questions to make our foundation very strong.
