    Agreeing to what the others said, I'd suggest you to go through the syllabus and prelims/mains question papers of 4-5 subjects that you would have shortlisted from the unending list of UPSC optional papers. Then just evaluate that what kind of questions are being asked and whether you'd be comfortable and capable to answer them once you are thorough with the syllabus. Selecting the optional paper remains more of an art and if you have to go by something then go by your interest in the subject alone as Neeraj Sir said or opt the subjects which you studied in your graduation as Mathur Sir said,everything else should take a backseat.
