    Hi Ankita,
    The most important thing which you need to keep in mind while choosing the subjects for Civil service examination is that you should have a strong hold on the fundamentals of those subjects and the subjects with which you are most comfortable as that will help you in your preparation to a great extent. There are few combinations which are not allowed to be taken which are:
    Political Science & International relations and Public Administration
    Commerce & Accountancy and Management
    Anthropology and Sociology
    Mathematics and Statistics
    Agriculture and Animal Husbandry & Veterinary Science
    Management and Public Administratio

    Hi Ankita, first of all, don't be so confused as to conquer the most prestigious and tough exam your mind should be relaxed.
    For your query I would say that your main motive should be to gain complete knowledge about the subject you choose, prepare well and clear the exam. And to attain that you must choose the subject carefully and opt for those which are comfortable, easily understandable and scoring subjects.
    There is a big list of optional subjects to choose from and you may choose according to your personal interest and attributes.
    For more details on combinations visit UPSC official website.
    For any further clari
