Welcome to Day 19 of TLP Phase I. Please understand that the next 12 weeks are not meant to test your knowledge. Most of you are giving your first attempt and its really important for you to self assess yourself over the fundamentals of various subjects. And even if you have appeared for CSM before, it is always desirable to brush up your basics before you go on to attempt highly analytical and thought provoking questions asked by UPSC. TLP Phase I is designed precisely for that. The questions in this phase would mostly be direct and based on fundamentals of the subject. Please be sincere and regular in this phase of your preparation because what you build here will become the foundation of phase II of TLP.



1. What are strategic minerals. Give examples. Also discuss their distribution in the world including Asia.

2. What is the significance of coal for a developing economy? Is India endowed with good coal resources? Examine.

3. Why copper is considered as an important mineral? Does India have abundant copper? How India’s needs are met? Discuss.

4. What are Masala bonds? What is so special about them? Examine.
