This book presents objective questions from all well-known branches of Botany. As many as 2200 questions have been framed right from Viruses which are invisible to naked eye to the most noticeable Angiosperms and from classical Taxonomy to the Modern Molecular Biology. The questions are compiled to help students appearing for the three coveted exams like Civil services, UGC -CSIR NET and Ph.D. entrance exams. Questions are substantially acquired from different competitive exams and also UGC -CSIR NET. Sections like Cytology, Genetics, Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Physiology and Ecology have more questions as these branches are more focused in these exams.
