Why Environment is one of the most important subject for UPSC Prelims 2021?

If you see 2018, 2019 and 2020 UPSC Prelims Examination question paper, you will find that UPSC is now asking around 20-30 Questions from Environment section. Whatever notes and content is available in the market is static and the nature of questions is very dynamic. One cannot find the source anywhere, hence it is highly important that we work on the basics and crystal-clear conceptual clarity in order to clear UPSC Civil Services Prelims Examination 2021.
