Some salient features of the book are as under : (i) No superfluous question. Only those questions have been included which have either been already set in different examinations or are expected to be set. (ii) Most systematic presentation. It is the only book in the market which has systematically categorised the study material of each unit. (iii) Time-saving solutions. Special techniques have been used in solving questions. These techniques have been highlighted at different places in the book. If the reader tries to grasp these techniques, considerable time will be saved.
