It is perhaps the first of its kind to meet the requirements of all major competitive examinations held in the country, including those conducted by the UPSC. Presenting the 'trickiest' topics of English Grammar in the most systematic and easy-to-understand manner, the book should not only prove useful to those taking tests both at national and international levels but also to those who want to learn English at an advanced level.
